Does the Honda Civic have Navigation?
Remember back in the day, when going on a road trip meant you’d have to write down turn-by-turn directions before you left home? Remember Mapquest? Remember when the cliché about men never wanting to stop and ask for directions actually meant something? Yeah, we don’t really miss that last one. These days, with more and more affordable cars including built-in navigation systems, the act of stopping to ask for directions — and the outdated gender stereotype that went with it — is quickly becoming a thing of the past. So, lately, we’ve had some customers wondering: does the Honda Civic have navigation?
Yes. Yes it does. But Which Ones?
2019 Honda Civic – For the 2019 model year, Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with voice recognition and Honda HD Digital Traffic is standard only on the top-of-the-line Honda Civic Sedan Touring trim level. However, Apple Maps and Google Maps can get you where you need to go thanks to standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration on the Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring trim levels.
2018 Honda Civic – The Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with voice recognition and Honda HD Digital Traffic is available on the Civic Sedan EX-L. However, one step up, on the Touring trim level of both the Civic sedan and coupe, the aforementioned navigation system is standard. Alternatively, you can use your phone for GPS via Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™ integration on the EX models and higher.
2017 Honda Civic – Like the 2018 Honda Civic sedan, the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with voice recognition and Honda HD Digital Traffic is available on the EX-L and standard on the fully-loaded Touring for the 2017 model year, but iPhone and Android users can still access Google Maps or Apple Maps thanks to Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration on the EX and above. For the 2017 Honda Civic Coupe, Navigation is standard on the Touring trim level.
2016 Honda Civic – Not every 2016 Honda Civic model comes with built-in navigation, but plenty of them do. Buy a fully loaded new Civic, and you’ll always know where you’re going, even in areas without any cell phone service. The 2016 Honda Civic Touring comes with Honda’s satellite-linked navigation system as a standard feature, and you’ll also find it in some Civic EX-L models. The system is Garmin-based, and it includes a new and improved voice control system, so it’s even easier to use it safely while driving. However! Even if you don’t want the fully loaded version, you can still get navigation in the new Honda Civic, as long as you remember to bring your phone. EX and EX-T models don’t have built-in navigation, but they do come with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto as a standard feature. So, in these cars, you’ll be able to easily use maps and directions from your phone’s navigation app on the car’s built-in screen. Learn more about Apple CarPlay in Honda vehicles here!
