Bought a 2008 RTL this week (11/2015). 145,000 miles. Paid $12,500.

Normally I'd be worried about the mileage, but the carfax was clean showing one owner, regular service at a honda dealer, and recent replacement of timing belt, catalytic converter, engine mounts, and rotors. No rust. Everything working.

Next up - change all the fluids, take a closer look at the radiator, and update the nav maps. Let me know if anyone has any other ideas!

You've got a good handle on it. If I were you, I'd replace the radiator anyways as preventative maintenance. If you're doing the work yourself, it's $150 well spent to gain peace of mind. Welcome to the ROC!

I'd suggest you ditch the expense of updating the navigation. Turn it off and use your smartphone, or alternatively, use a standalone system from garmin.
Final thought: without pictures it didn't happen.

Yes, the navigation system in these trucks is ancient. It was designed back in 2003/4, so it's essentially now 12 years old. However, with the most recent map updates, it does the job. The convenience of the GPS system on the "Maps" app on an iPhone makes in-dash navigation almost obsolete, but it's still useful.
