Hey just joined today and have a few questions How do I reset the Nav systems the previous owner has a 4 digit code to lock where you input your addresses. How do I reset it I just bought the 2012 disc and I want to start fresh
I will check the HELM manual and let you know. It may not have detail on this. I also don't quite understand your sentence...."previous owner has a 4 digit code to lock where you input your addresses." I'm not Navi Savvy so that might explain my lack of understanding.
jcaliendo the Helm manual refers to the 4-digit security code that you are talking about. For the anti-theft code and I quote:
The navigation system has a coded theft protection
circuit. Be sure to get the customer’s 4-digit anti-theft
security code number before;
• Disconnecting the battery.
• Disconnecting the navigation unit 8P connector.
• Removing the NAVIGATION (10A) fuse fromthe
passenger’s under-dash fuse/relay box.
After service, reconnect power to the navigation unit,
and turn the ignition switch ON (II). Enter the 4-digit
anti-theft security code, then select ‘‘Done’’.
When replacing the navigation unit, be sure to give the
customer the new anti-theft security code.
So, unless you have a record of the code from the previous owner, you may be faced with calling your VIN into HONDA and asking them for it. If the code can be changed by the user then your only option may be to track down the previous owner and see if they have that code. Best case scenario is that you can get Honda to give you the code (you might have to prove ownership).
