Havre De Grace, MD

on honda accords/acura tl's 2004-2008 the navigation systems are failure and causing reboots nearly every 30 seconds. at night driving, this causes the navigation screen light to brightly flash every 30 seconds and the system will not function and allow you to turn the screen off or minimize brightness. on a recent trip from atlanta, georgia to baltimore, maryland at night i had to place an obstacle on the screen to avoid the flashing. i contacted acura and they are aware that this is happening and that the fix is to purchase a new system at $3,500 or sent the system to alpine (the maker of the navigation system) and have them attempt to repair it for $158.00 fee. after reviewing numerous forum sites on honda/acura i have found this to be a very common event. i feel that this is very dangerous while driving at night. my son attempted to drive this vehicle on 12/24/2011 during the day and brought the car back home because of the flashing and annoyance while driving. this was coming from a 22 year old. i've asked my children to not drive the vehicle at night so to avoid any issues. has there been any reports? acura told me that they report to this agency monthly and that my report/call to them today would be submitted this month. *tr

Acura Rl 2004

Safety incident date:
Feb 18, 2013
Location:
Hoffman Estates, IL

the dvd navigation system in the rl is burning out the dvd disk and causing the navigation to stop working. the gps locator on the screen had my vehicle nowhere near the actual location. the navigation voice would give command to make a turn where no road existed. i have come to find out that the failure of the dvd drive in the car is a more common event as i read the acura forums. http://tsx.acurazine.com/forums/showthread.php?t=676588. *tr

Acura Rdx 2013
Honda (american Honda Motor Co.)
Safety incident date:
Jan 29, 2014
Location:
Potomac, MD

operation of gps voice activation system causes significant drive distraction and is potentially dangerous. friends with the same model have the same problem. specifics of problem is listed below in communication with honda. this is problem is so potentially dangerous my wife and i don't use the system any more. in conversations with honda they won't recognize the safety aspect of the problem see below. acr@ahm.acura.com background: i currently own two acura vehicles, a 2008 tl and a 2013 rdx. i have owned a total of 4 acura vehicles and there are currently 5 honda vehicles in my immediate family. i believe you manufacture an superior product with the exception of what i consider a serious design flaw in the 2013 rdx. i have an advanced aerospace engineering degree from mit and currently work in the advanced technology development arena. and i speak english fluently (native language). problem: trying to activate the navigation system (places mode) when the vehicle is in motion is at best user unfriendly and potentially dangerous. my wife and i have engaged in several training exercises since we purchased the vehicle at the end of september; all have resulted in frustration and failure to achieve the desired result. (training consists of trying to use the system on a familiar route to a known location.) as you know, in this mode, the driver must spell the desired location in order to engage the system. yesterday, the system couldn't recognize the letter ?e,? the most commonly used letter in the english language. my attention was constantly diverted from the road to trying to make an audio input that the system could understand then looking at the screen to select a numbered verification of the letter. this scenario took about 10 minutes for a 6 letter word. unacceptable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *tr
