Solution: hold power button and reboot.

2020 CR-V EX, about 3000 miles and 3 months, great car, first gremlin though:
Everything was working fine. I didn't change anything. Suddenly as of yesterday,
there's this "unsupported" word at the top even when nothing is plugged into the USB.
Phone is Google Pixel 2, stock and not rooted. Car is stock, nothing customized.

More critically, IT DOESN'T GO AWAY when switching to Android Auto maps, and
it blocks the top of the screen. In the following photo, you can see that it is blocking
the text entry field, and the back button to the left of the text entry. And the
mysterious "Unsupported" message that is now there 100% of the time no matter
what.



Now, I have found that I can press the Climate button twice, and the top status
bar will be removed temporarily.

What has happened? How do I fix it or reset it? Exactly what is "unsupported",
there are no clues at all.

I have heard of pressing the volume/off button and holding it to reset the infotainment system. I have never tried this, nor am I an expert. Why don't you try that?
That brought up a "Reboot?" screen, and rebooting resolved the issue! Thanks!
I guess something crashed. I guess it's actually an Android device that enters sleep,
and doesn't really turn off, that's interesting.

Hard reset mostly cures all this sort of stuff.

Although, why car manufacturers cant just stick in a decent infotainment system from a specialist like Pioneer, I will never know.

If Honda has a foible, its that their infotainment systems really are - poor. And thats being generous.

Hey, alright I actually helped someone! As far as my android phone goes, I rarely turn it off except when it starts acting weird. Every once in a while it reboots all on its own without explanation.

Note: Honda does not make their head units.. they buy them from major electronics suppliers. I believe the units in the gen5 CRVs are Mitsubishi.

The new infotainment systems in the gen10 Accords is a huge step up from what is in the gen5 CRV. It even has a full set of real buttons for most top level selections. It's a bit later design timeline.. so the Accord has features not on our gen5 CRVs... so Honda does appear to be learning.. finally where the head units are concerned.

Yes, am aware Honda sources these in and is not responsible for their manufacture.

But as a device, they are functional and largely rubbish.

Since we dont have the Accord in the UK, we wont be seeing an infotainment system like that until perhaps the 11Gen Civic arrival next year.

Even so, when the warranty on my CR-V elapses, the first thing I aim to do is to rip out that infotainment screen and replace it with something superior.

What bugs me most about my 2020 CR-V head unit is that there is no one-touch to return to Google Maps. Have I overlooked something? To my eyes, looks like the Accord basically got a Map button and a Source button as the key upgrades -- but I disagree about button placement, should have swapped brightness and Maps.
