    Hello,

    I have recently purchased a Honda CR-V 2013 EX for my other half but I don't really like the navigation unit in this model, the newer type found in the 2015 looks a lot nicer. Does anyone know if its possible to replace the unit in a 2013 model with a new spec version?

    Wouldn't bother with the Honda Connect as very expensive. There are plenty of aftermarket units that will fit but you might lose some functions that the inbuilt unit has.
    Google head units for Honda CR-V.
    Regards

    Ok thanks, I was thinking along those kind of lines but thought a proper Honda one might be better. I'll see what aftermarket ones offer but will probably stick with the original if its gonna lose some functions.

    It makes sense to install an aftermarket unit if your Car did not have one. Still waiting for Honda to add Cyprus map on their prefacelift CR-V 2013 in order to update it (yes it is too difficult for their intellect to add a small map of Cyprus where so many offline maps exist). Well the only solution for me was to give the car to my wife and purchase an audi Q5 instead which now comes with a 7" android multimedia navigation backup camera, a2dp, fully integrated 1024x600 touch screen, google maps...…. Play store, WiFi (phone hotspot 4G) etc. Yes that was an aftermarket third party solution but fully integrated so I don't loose the existing radio (hardware still there only changed the screen which was a unit by it self) and the audi info settings. Spent 8 hours of installation time but totally worth it.

    Being treated as a non customer will never purchase a Honda again.
