  1. Replacing RTL Nav Dash Radio

    First Generation Ridgeline (1G 2006-2014)
    Hi everyone, had a quick question on replacing a navigation radio on my 2006 Ridgeline. I got a dash kit to replace my radio with a double din aftermarket deck. However, under the factory nav radio, they are some regular radio peripherals along with the hazard light button. The dash kit I...
  2. Navigation Randomly Shut Off?

    1G Problems & Issues
    Hey All! So I don’t know if anyone else had this issue, I’ve been told it’s common in ridgelines and odyssey’s but for me it was literally one day my Nav was working and then the next day it just won’t turn on. None of the buttons work, won’t open to access the CD slot, screen won’t power up...

  6. 2019 RTL - looking to add aftermarket Navigation

    2G Audio, Bluetooth, Electronics & Navigation
    I just purchased a 2019 RTL. I really wanted to have the larger screen that came with the RTL-T and RTL-E, but wasn't able to pony up for the extra cost associated to it. I was interested in either getting an OEM navigation (used - if they can be installed), or go with an aftermarket option...

    Hello all. I have a 2017 RTL. Radio has no navigation, which I want. I just bought an aftermarket pioneer radio with appleplay with wiring harness, steering wheel control, and back up retain hookup. I was thinking it would be easy with wiring kits, but now it seems more like a pain and not...

  12. Honda Navigation cumbersome to use

    Dear Honda: (Feedback Forum)
    I just bought a 2013 Honda Ridgeline and I know that it not the most current model but I can't believe how cumbersome the navigation system is to use. 1. No multiple destinations. Sure you can get waypoints but only if they are along your route. Even then you can't select waypoints from an...

    My first post as I bought 2014 SE at the end December. It has Nav & XM. My wife has a CRV with Nav and XM, so I was aware that the BT probably wouldn't steam audio, what I didn't realize is that the Ridgeline didn't have a USB input like the CRV, which allows control and displays music info...
