2018 CRV: Default Display- No Device Connected

There are a number of disappointments with the 'entertainment center', display and app. Briefly, the app is not as mature or well developed as other manufacturers. Too many distractions and few self resolving conditions.

I find that this is the display I see everyday. Another is 'this function not available....'. At times the screen does not respond to taps or touches, so this displays till the screen decides to recognize an action. My further disappointment is having to tap 3-6x to navigate through menus to listen to a radio or a blue tooth device. This should self resolve to a USEFUL menu.

I have spent a great amount of time attempting to set the display to simply show a clock face or some useful menu rather than - No Device Connected.

Other suggested improvements:
When NO DEVICE CONNECTED, change to another display after 15/30 seconds. This looks DUMB!
Keep radio on after ignition is off. Turn off the radio after 15/30/60/90 seconds, when door is closed and locked, etc.
The menu tree has far too many branches, vague settings and dependencies as well as the manual being incorrect or absent specific instructions.
A default display without any tap or touching when car is powered on - NOT NO DEVICE CONNECTED!.
Find another method to turn on accessory mode. The double tap works sometimes.
Once in Accessory mode, do not require starting car to exit Accessory mode and leave the vehicle.

Overall, I am not enthusiastic with my decision to buy a CRV. When I drive my other cars (Mini Cooper, Toyota, Ford), I feel the CRV is inferior in a number of aspects, especially the high tech features.

Sorry to hear it. I have yet to find a car that has solved all the issues on my own list... But I did test drive the crv so I knew what I was getting.

I shopped, test drove and researched as well, but nothing alerted me to the quirks and limitations:
  • repeated loud beeps when closing the door
  • display 'no device' all the time
  • display 'feature not available'
  • radio takes 30-90 seconds or more to turn on
  • any radio/mode selection requires multiple menus
  • when connecting iphone with USB, iphone is disabled while CARLINK is displayed
  • Google maps not quite the same on car display - lots more clicks to enter an address
  • keyless entry requires waiting as much as 10 seconds to unlock car
  • attempting to open car by pulling on the door handle when locked - delays car unlocking
  • inbound phone calls sometimes play on phone, sometimes play on car radio

Honda high tech audio is an oxymoron.

Never had any of these issues other then long radio boot up time.. and that was only a few occasions in two years when the HU decided it need a full reboot for whatever reason.

Other then google maps usability features shown....most of what you presented here is NOT normal for the gen5 CRV. If it does all this consistently... it should be easy to take it to the dealer, demonstrate, and ask them to R&R your vehicle to address it.

Note: low battery voltage on your car battery can cause a lot of these.

This is a very old thread, but I'm curious about "low battery voltage." Our 2018 EX is now 3+ years old and the Head unit has been finicky from the get-go, demonstrating a number of quirky intermittent problems. Right now, it is showing the "No Device Connected" fairly frequently, even when the iPhone IS connected by Bluetooth and works through the HU. So, our battery is old, for a Honda battery, but I do a 24 hour 2amp charge about once per week usually keeping it above 12.5 volts. Is THAT a low battery in your estimation, sufficient to cause HU quirks? Thanks.

A battery voltage of 12.2 or less, I would expect could introduce some power up glitching. Above that though.. there really should be no issues.
