The first time, it would show me some web-page looking screen when I went to the audio section from the home screen. It didn't clear up on a power down/up. Only cleared when...

    The new Odyssey and upcoming Accord have a headunit with new software, and presumably hardware, that has a much quicker response. What is the consensus on when this will carry over to the CR-V? Not until the mid cycle refresh?
