Lay a workshop towel under the parts when working on them to protect the face panel from scratches or other damage.

Discharge static electricity from your body before and during the work.

Do not work with dirty hands.

Do not touch the terminal connector of the flat plate cable with your bare hands (If you have touched it, wipe it off thoroughly.).

Eject the disc before removing the audio-navigation unit to prevent damaging the CD player's load mechanism.

If you are replacing the audio-navigation unit, write down the audio presets (if possible), then enter them into the new audio-navigation unit.

When the audio-navigation unit is replaced or disconnected, do the Map Matching. This part of the initialization matches the GPS coordinates with a road on the map screen. To do this part of the procedure, make sure that the navigation system displays a map, and drive the vehicle on a mapped road shown on the map screen. Do not enter a destination at this time. When the name of the current road you are driving on appears at the bottom of the screen, the entire procedure is complete.


Remove the bolts (A).


Disconnect the connectors, then pull out the audio-navigation unit assembly (A).

3. SD Module


The audio-navigation unit and SD module are mated and cannot be substituted separately. If you need to substitute a known-good unit for testing, substitute a complete known-good audio-navigation unit and SD module.

Check any official Honda service website for more service information about the navigation system.

Static electricity can damage the SD module. Always follow proper handling procedures.

Always use the anti-static mat (ESD) and wrist strap when removing the SD module. Before you open the audio-navigation unit or handle the replacement SD module, attach the wrist strap around one of your wrists, and attach the alligator clip to the ESD mat.

Make sure you use the screws in the same holes. The SD module can be damaged if the wrong screws are used.

You do not have to peel off the plastic cover to remove the screws or the SD module.

Do not force the SD module. If it does not slide in smoothly, check the alignment of the SD module and the pins. If the pins are bent, replace the SD module.

Make sure the SD module screws are not loose. If they are, the SD module can be damaged.

Handle the SD module by its edges. Do not touch the pins.
