    Yes and thanks. This exactly what I mean. My 2008 would show all the tire pressures all the way around. I really liked that feature. I am quite anal about have the pressures within .5 of each other. It was a great feature.

    Fog mitigation feature in the climate control. If it's close to 32F (0C) you might have your A/C go on to keep the window from fogging up.

    I see that you are in California. I too am surprised by the warranty prices in CA. What plan did you end up getting for $700 ?

    When vehicle is in reverse, slide the mirror selector switch to either side to have the corresponding outside mirror angle downwards so you can see the curb when paralllel parking.
    Does this work on an EXL -RES model? Thanks!

    Don't remember seeing this posted.

    There is a setting for the navigation system that allows you to have another audio device displayed on the nav screen and then when you get close to the next direction on your route, the nav screen will appear and show you the map as well as the next direction. When you pass that point on the map, the display will switch back to the audio that you had originally set.

    On our 2012 EX-L, we don't know how to turn off the rear fan's from the front console. Does anyone have a tip? The 2012 owners manual PDF linked in the stickies shows different layout (pg 183) than our actual car. The controls on our car does not have a "Rear On/OFF" button. I've attached a picture of what our car's controls looks like and a screen shot of the manual (PDF) to show the differences.

    When I press the ON/OFF button either both front and rear turn on or they both turn off. The ody is my wifes daily so I cannot run out and read the hard copy manual to see if that is any different. Can anyone shed some light on this?

    To turn the rear system completely off, press the ON/OFF button on the rear control panel or press and hold the REAR LOCK button on the front control panel for more than 2 seconds.

    Hope that works. I just learned that today too. Thanks for the question.

    I think the best tip is to browse through this same thread from page 1, it has very good answers already :

    *facepalm* I read through the entire thread but that was two weeks ago. In fact, it was the first thread I read on this site as we were shopping/comparing our options.

    However one should note that if the driver's side sliding door is open you can still open the fuel door at which point will create a problem when closing the sliding door.

    Wallpaper Resolution

    When creating a wallpaper for the cars with NAV it should be saved as 800x480 . The manual says the max is 1024x768, but at that resolution there are two black bars on either side. I assume the correct resolution for the EX is 480x320.

    Yes, that what the specs say in the web site. The 480X320 screen should also apply to the EX/L and EX/L with RES

    XM Radio Receiver unavailable (in Canada at least) for 2011 Odyssey as of end of May, 2012. Cross reference thread on XM No Sound Available What Soever. Apparently because of an identified software problem Honda is not shipping replacement units until a software fix has been found.
