Go screw yourself skippy.
I asked a simple question. Are the radio and NAV codes the same. Yes I
have the manual, and I even have the full service manual set.
It won't take the code on my card. Dealer is closed.
Now go kick your dog.
Duh, yes! Jesus, I've had 14 Hondas. The code does not work! I believe the
codes for Radio and NAV should be different, but my Honda card has the same
number for both.
Simple question for current owners...are the numbers the same?
I have the manual in front of me. You tell me where this is address.
BTW, if you don't have a 2006 NAV, no need to reply.
Okay, here is the outcome.
The numbers should be different. The dealer said the card is wrong and they
need the NAV SN. They will have to pull the unit. I knew I saw the SN
somewhere in the programming screen. I asked can they get it another way?
No. I went to the car, pressed the three button sequence to get into the
programming of the NAV. I pulled the SN, they generated me the code. All
So, keep in mind that none of what I was asking is in the owners manual.
You're too kind. Are you sure that he knows more than they do? Perhaps
they were merely looking at it as a profit center. Can't make any money
just being helpful to the customer and clarifying something they should
have given him in the first place. Much better to TELL him they have to
pull the unit, hit him with a good bill and then let him marvel at what
a wonderful job they did pulling the unit and reinstalling it without so
much as a scratch to the dashboard trim<g>
On my Acura, the two codes definitely were not the same. Look through your
stuff again & I'll bet you find another code somewhere in the pile.

The card has a place for the Radio code and the NAV code. They put the same
stickers on each location. Me thinks it was a dealer screw up. The
probably have a card with two NAV codes somewhere.
Anyway, done deal, and no Elmo, the answer was not in the manual :-)
Good point. I also now have a Garmin 360 Nuvi. I find it more useful and
more accurate than the one in the Accord. But I do like the techno gadgetry
of the LCD panel (when it works). I doubt I will by a Gps in my next Honda,
the portable is more practical.
