  1. 2001 Navigation won't lock on roads

    I just bought the new 2010 Navigation DVD - Black for my 2001 MDX. It loaded fine and I went out to a verified road to get it initialized as described. It would not lock on to the verified road until I turned off the car and turned it back on again. Now it will not find verified roads until I...

  4. nav shuts off

    First Generation MDX (2001-2006)
    I assume you have the car running as this is a normal feature when the ignition is on but the engine is not running. If the engine is running you have a charging problem, or a bad sensor/chip and need to have the car serviced.

  7. New Navigation Update

    Because verified is more that just an accurate representation of the shape and location of the road. It also includes things like direction (one way vs two way), speeds and a few other tidbits I can't remember now.
  8. Verified Roads on Fall 2005 Disks

    Audio & Electronics
    Re: MGTD, here's my take on this... Yes I checked all those communities that you also noted that we said to be verified and they are all tan. So Alpine missreprented these communities as verified. It is interesting though that the roads have been updated considerably in accuracy though...
  9. Verified Roads on Fall 2005 Disks

    I just got a new 2.30a disk for my 2001 MDX with Navi. I installed it and in my neighborhood all the roads were unverified. The web site says that they were updated to verified. Well I can say that the roads are much more accurate but they still display as tan colored versus black. I also...

    Great pic. Saw one of those in Tucson once and luckily by the time I got there it has passed through. Just got a bunch of dust vs sandblasted.

  13. Struts/Spring recall and alignment issue!

    I must have missed this 'salt state' 01 strut recall since I am not in a salt state. Anyway I just had to have both front struts and the sway bar busings plus alignment done on my 01 with 65k miles. When you drove down the road it sounded and felt like the whole front end was falling off...

    I am probably out for the next gen x I guess my 2001 will be my last Acura. I am not going the sport route and was looking for Acura to do the right thing with a Hybrid. Noting the the Honda hybrids have dismal gas mileage compared to Toyota's, I guess I will be looking there first. I also...
