Cannot connect to server
Really frustrating! When is Honda going to fix this cannot connect to server issue. They really should refund my money if they aren't going to fix it anytime soon. What a waste!
Best app for exploring strange locations
I think this app is in serious need of a map update. I tried to use it to find a store and it drove me 8 miles out of my way onto some dirt road that had no stores at all. I felt like I was in a horror movie and was waiting for some freaky clown to come out and attack me. I switched over to Apple Maps to find my way to the real store. I hope Honda reads this and either updates their maps or hooks into Apple Maps so we can use a better mapping system. If you don't mind exploring in your SUV, and aren't afraid of killer clowns; then this app is for you!!!
Only option for '16 CR-V and it's bad
I hate this app with a passion, but it's the only navigation app that is compatible with the display audio system. It's a little pricey for an app; it wouldn't be such a bad value if it actually worked well but it does not.
Clunky and slow to respond with directions that are either around about or plain wrong. Traffic is usually slow to update and hard to see as it is a very thin line. Interface is generally horrible.
I've given up and reverted to using Google Maps or Waze on my phone with a clip on the dashboard.
Crappy app as the only option for navigation
By Sharna Horn
I couldn't be more disappointed with this app. Imagine Garmin's FIRST GPS system and it's worse than that! Navigation isn't voice activated, hard to use, no exit button and overall horrible image. I want my money back and a sincere apology for Honda for their lack of innovation and commitment to their clients. It's embarrassing how hard it is to use AND their ap holds your phone hostage while using it. Expect a loss of map if you get a call or inability to have it running in the background on your phone in 2017 this ap is like a bad April fools joke which costs you $60. DO NOT PURCHASE!
Way Too Expensive!
Hold your horses Honda! No so fast!!! Very disappointing to find that the navigation system is this expensive. So, wait a minute! I paid $59 for an app that does not give me multiple routes nor give me traffic updates when there are delays? The map looks very retro compared to my google maps. If I pay for a device holder for about $20 and hang my phone to use the free google maps, I don't need this app at all. So, why is this app so expensive? Plus I think it should be included when you purchased the vehicle.

Won't even load
Total Waste of $60
It doesn't document it on the app but it's only compatible with one version of HondaLink. A version of HondLink that's not on the Accord, pretty much only the
Civic. So if you don't own a 2013-2015 Civic it's a total waste of $60.
Speaks street names and routing does base on traffic. Pretty good.
This this the worst app ever, works for a few seconds then the screen starts to go crazy, I need my money back , how do I get a refund? I rather to buy a regular gps instead this crap app
Overpriced and underwhelming.
I have owned several Honda products and also work for the manufacture for years. This app is certainly not a reflection of the other products. This app just stinks. Google maps is much better and more intuitive. The price I paid for this app is ridiculous now that I've had the time to spend using it. I have all of he Honda link apps and they are all mediocre at best. I definitely have buyers remorse. I would not recommend this app to anyone.
Piece of Crap! I want Apple CarPlay on my '17 Fit!!!
Waste of money and developer time.
Instead of making a crappy experience a little less crappy, just make a firmware update to my '17 Fit so I can use Apple CarPlay!! You focus on cars and let Apple handle the phone stuff? Deal?
This app has not worked for 2 iOs updates now. I literally switched to Apple so I use use this with my Honda. I have tried their support system and tried to get a refund and zero response. I will never buy Honda branded apps again.
