Perhaps try another FAT32-formatted USB stick plugged into USB port 2?Thanks for your great contribution to this thread. One question, what type of usb did you use? I tried 3 different usbs, but none of them worked.. it always said "usb problem". And I have tried in 2 usb ports, same problem.....
May not be popular given the extra coin you spent on the navigation, but you could potentially swap out a non-Navi touch screen. looks like they run around $170 on eBay and the plugs on the back look the same (though no guarantee). I prefer the OEM look and in theory all camera would integrate perfectly.Anyone have any leads on where an update file for the units with navigation might exist?
This isn’t a bad idea, presuming it’s possible to do so. Hopefully someone just has the correct file, though.May not be popular given the extra coin you spent on the navigation, but you could potentially swap out a non-Navi touch screen. looks like they run around $170 on eBay and the plugs on the back look the same (though no guarantee).

My wife‘s odyssey has navigation and I tried using it one time and vowed to never use it again - it criminal on how much it cost vs what you get. If I could swap out the odyssey head unit for $170 and get CarPlay, I would be all over it.
Trying to gauge whether to install this or not. Could you please elaborate on 'a tad bit slower' for the HondaLink and 'slight bit of lag' for the CarPlay? Thanks.The HondaLink system seems to run just a tad bit slower than before and the CarPlay has just a slight bit of lag compared to newer vehicles.
Can you share step by step on unplugging the cable?Follow up - removing the GPS cable may have helped. I drove yesterday and the GPS was reporting incorrectly, but after unplugging the cable the issue was immediately remedied. I've been going through this since January, where it would work great for weeks and then not work right for days/weeks. I need to do a few more trips before deciding if the GPS-cable solution worked.

so I was able to get a CarPlay update for the 2015-2016 CRV EX and above. I was able to get a USB stick that had it work perfectly this is the beta software that was released and it works well, only thing I've noticed is CarPlay when you turn your car on will take up to 20 seconds to load up but when it does its very snappy. I made a copy of the usb contents and have it posted with instructions here. I can't confirm that this works because when I tried to duplicate it I was not able to get a update prompt the second time around (this happened with the original USB that performed the update and the copy that I made). But here goes, let me know if it works at all for you guys. I'm pretty stoked that this works and I don't have to change out any hardware to get CarPlay. BTW all functionality including steering wheel controls work.
1. What you want to do is make sure that when you download this file that it is transferred to a usb drive that is formatted at FAT32, name the drive USB20FD.
2. In the car make sure all doors are closed and everything is off, windows up.
3. Turn car on and wait for the head unit to fully load. Plug the drive into the USB port to the left. Wait 2 minutes for the update message to show up, select the update and wait for it to finish to 100% it might stall at the end at 99%.
4. Follow all prompts.
5. You will see CarPlay as an icon on the headunit.
LOL, that's amazing, just doing my duty. I did notice you posted this with a Pixel I should mention androidauto as far as I know does not work, just CarPlay.
