    Default Honda Civic New 2nd Gen Navigation Android based system.

    Hello fellow Pakwheelers,

    Starting a new thread after a very long gap of activity on Pakwheels and this time its about the factory fitted navigation system of 9th Gen Honda Civic.

    I booked my Civic Vti Oriel Prosmatic with full options (Leather + Navigation) in early May 2015 and got it delivered the next day . Car is good Alhumdulilah but the igo3 navigation system it came with gradually started acting really wired until yesterday when it decided to go completely nuts. I read many threads about the problems faced by civic owners with the navigation unit provided by tracking world (TW) but the thing that made me wonder was that TW had good reputation / units in reborn and city aspire as i have personally used and witnessed their sound, video and compatibility in both the vehicles. The problems that started originating for me were:

    1. Frequent loss of steering controls.
    2. Reverse camera sometimes decides to start automatically even when driving forward.
    3. Volume suddenly goes down from high to low automatically.
    4. Excessive beeps from the unit without a reason.
    5. Skipping of tracks when played with USB.
    6. USB interface often gets stuck and fails to recognize a USB flash drive attached.
    7. Delay time on startup.
    8. Delay time for cameras.
    9. Pathetic camera quality.
    10. Seriously Pathetic Sound quality.
    11. Failed outgoing phone calls.

    These are the issues that ruined my driving experience especially after spending 70K for this crap unit. Additional issues are explained in detail here (https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/car...stem-9th-civic). I however faced only the issues mentioned above.

    Yesterday I gave a call to Tracking world and talked to their senior management about this pathetic unit and surprisingly they admitted but, blamed it on HONDA. The person on the other side briefed me that Honda pushed us to launch android based unit before the new Toyota Grande launch (which has a android based system) to compete in the market and we had to do it forcefully on a very short notice and without proper testing. He then told me that we have a brand new 2nd generation of android unit which has a full blown android system and has no issues at all what so ever. The specs (yet to be verified) of the new unit as described by the TW manger are:

    a. Android 4.4.2 (Verified)
    b. Capacitative multi touch display (Verified)
    c. Processor: ARM Cortex A9 (Rockchip - RK3188) 32 bit. 2.2 Ghz Dual Core processor (Verified by Antutu)
    d. 1 GB Ram (Verified by Antutu)
    e. Total 16 Gb of Internal memory (4 Gb occupied by system + 12 Gb free for user) (Verified by Antutu)
    f. Full blown android system including Play store (Verified)
    g. Built-in Wifi (Verified)
    h. Full HD Display (Verified)

    To cut it short, its a complete android tablet. I have tested it for more than 6 hours now and i can confirm that:

    i. Wifi works flawlessly. I connected it with my wireless router at home.
    ii. Added my Google account and it synced all my emails, contacts etc.
    iii. Playstore is working and you can actually download apps and games etc.
    iv. Sound quality has improved 200 %. I can compare the difference easily. Its way better than the sound quality of reborn and aspire units. I'm not a sound fanatic but can differentiate between good and bad sound easily.
    v. It has an HD display which has definitely improved the display quality. Videos are stunning. You have to see it to believe it. I watched a few videos on daily motion
    vi. Steering controls are more responsive and there is no delay anymore.
    vii. The whole units starts within approx. 2 to 4 or 5 sec max. Back camera is engaged within a sec. no more delays in reversing.
    viii. There is a pre-installed app "easy connect". You can connect your android and iPhone through this app and control the phone from the unit's screen as if you are using the phone. Yet to try this thing out, sounds very interesting.
    ix. The whole experience is very fast and fluid without any hiccups. All apps open instantly and work like a charm.

    A few members were confused on getting this system, so I thought to share my detailed experience and post my recommendations. I highly recommend this system. I shall try to post videos of it tomorrow In sha Allah in action so you can have an idea of its startup time, fluidity, speed and other issues. Please let me know what else you want to see on video . One thing I can clearly and rather proudly state is that it is far more superior in quality, speed and fluidity than the units coming with the new Toyota Corolla. I've used both the systems and i can compare easily.
    Here comes a few pictures for your delight. You can have a good idea of the HD quality display even from the pictures.

    Regards,
    Dr. Tausif Ahmed.

    Brothers, i got this system installed in my car but ipod is not working when connecting it to USB port (It keeps on connecting/disconnecting state, means same like if someone removes charging cable and put back again and again). Initially i thought that i dont need ipod as i will never use it but now due to poor default music/video player (No library management/ No folder organisation etc). I am planning to use ipod to store all music. Has anyone faced same issue? Am i connecting ipod wrong or anything else? please guide. Should i talk to TW guys?

    I need to use ipod for music as other players for Play Store like Mort Player, poweramp etc dont start by themselves on system boot even i installed Autorun Apps which are designed to start other applications on system boot but these dont work also as this unit is rooted and does not grant permission to those application for this job.

    Please help if anybody has figured this out.
    nope it didn't worked for me either. I have old iPod which has wide connector (iPhone 4 and 4s type). I have never tried the new one which has slim connector. (iphone 6 type).

    in this case u need to talk to the TW guys. I M living with poweramp... as I faced the same issue of library management.

    Guys ... I just visited TW office and here is the updates:

    1: You can buy IPOD cable as told by Hasnain in above post.
    2: There is a software upgrade for this new System which enables the folder/library management system to browse mp3 by folder.
    3: it also provide pressing SOURCE button to pick call up unlike touching the screen every time.

    They will upgrade your software free of cost but you have to tkae your car to them .

    Default Good Experience

    I have recently bought this 2nd Generation Navigation. Well I purchased Honda Civic in 2013 so at that time they had windows navigation with single camera. Now I have to pay 40,000 along with the windows unit to get it replaced with the new one. I liked it a lot. Screen Quality is excellent. Besides this it's like a tablet, you can install whatever you want to.
    Well If anyone have questions regarding it, he can surely ask me.

    Also If any one know about android application which can record videos and it should have option to swap between multiple cameras. The idea is to record videos from the parking cameras.

    If anyone want to suggest something to make it better, he can surely so that we could make this blog running

    Cheers.
    Special Thanks to Dr Tauseef
    Cause he was the one who actually started this thread.

    Hello brother
    I am also facing the same problem. I have talked to Mr Imran and Mr Ghulam Rasool at tracking World they are saying few lines will come. I guess they have ground the wires that's why the lines appear as soon as we press the horn or dip the lights. That's actually car issue. You must have faced this problem as well whenever the a/c goes on or off, headlights or interior lights show a lil bit of noise/distortion(what should i say ) I guess the problem is same.

    I'm interested in this system for our 2013 Civic Vti oriel. Few questions:

    1. How much would it cost me to get the current/oem navi replaced with this one?

    2. Is the navigation better in this i.e. maps, the ways destination is entered, and the way it gives directions?

    3. Are other people experiencing lines issue, as mentioned by couple of people above my post?

    Thanks!

    Is front camera installed on 2013 civic as part of the 30K upgrade? or is that a separate item? I also heard somewhere that the new civic includes side-cameras. Is that a separate add-on?

    Is the 30K cost from Honda?
