  1. Center console light

    2018+ Odyssey
    You could piggy-back an LED light off the USB charge line if you really want a light there. Might be other hot wires too depending on your wiring harness.
  2. some folders in the Memory Stick is not reading

    2018+ Odyssey
    Smaller seems to be better, my 4 GB sticks rarely glitched my 16s glitch so often I quit using them. You can get a re-read. Pull the stick, go to park, shut off the engine, open then close the driver's door, restart and reinsert. I have been told locking and unlocking the doors works as well...
  3. 2019 wiper misting?

    2018+ Odyssey
    Hit the dealer for warranty service on the interval issue and mention the mist issue. No clue what you mean by lacking but it seems a lot of folks change to other non-Honda blades and are happier.
  4. 2020 Ody - Consumer Reports - Very low rating - Should I still buy ??

    2018+ Odyssey
    All the old posts here on the AC system still apply since the hardware hasn't changed. Some of the assembly and filling issues look to have been fixed though. We are surviving in Phoenix with Reflectrix insulation stuffed in the sun roof, not using economy mode or the auto engine stop. We do...
  5. 2020 Ody - Consumer Reports - Very low rating - Should I still buy ??

    2018+ Odyssey
    I'd buy another Ody, still probably bitch about the flaws but I like it better than the other options. The 21 update is tempting. If you wanted to see really bad look at an un-updated / recalled 18 Ody.
  6. Software update letter.

    2018+ Odyssey
    Are you saying Honda doesn't use a secured connection for the in-car software downloads? If that is the case then by all means seek out a secure connection point that you fully trust.
  7. Key Fob or Software Bug?

    2018+ Odyssey
    Our dealer will replace your key battery for free if you walk in. Not a bad deal when you toss in a free fresh ground coffee and banana too.
  8. Software update letter.

    2018+ Odyssey
    USB is a mess on my 18, if I turn off the engine and open then close the driver's door it seems to help flush the data to the drive.
  9. Software update letter.

    2018+ Odyssey
    Try Starbucks WiFi, start the update, get a coffee and relax. Actually about any public WiFi should work, or use the dealer's WiFi next service.
  10. How to restore Garmin Map?

    2018+ Odyssey
    I initially had map update issues with my 18 Ody, a different 16 GB thumb drive formatted on the Windows machine and the steps below seemed to solve my issues. Now I erase everything on the drive, every time on my Windows box. Be sure to eject the drive! Start the Ody and let everything boot...
  11. ‘19 vs ‘20 buying advice

    2018+ Odyssey
    With an older vehicle in above average condition selling it yourself can often get you a better price.
  12. Poll: Would you still buy your Odyssey?

    2018+ Odyssey
    I really hated my 18 when it was new, Honda has made a lot of fixes which improved it to pretty bad from frustrating and awful. If Honda makes changes other than cosmetic we might pick up another in a couple years... Not for 6 months after the release and relentless pursuit of the forums to...
  13. Honda Odyssey 2019 Display does not turn off

    2018+ Odyssey
    Keyboard: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I5SW8MC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Works great for us, entering data as well as resetting. It is a shame USB ports are so expensive that Honda could only afford to put one in a $40K plus car. Oh, and they put in a dumb one...
  14. Highway mileage

    2018+ Odyssey
    Calculating across several fill-ups will help you average out differences in how full you got the tank each time.
  15. AC vent noise

    2018+ Odyssey
    We find the fan noise worse on recirculate, always happy when it cools off enough we don't need to use it.
