If you’re not able to park within range Wifi is not an option. I wish Honda would at least publish the current version numbers so we could just check it that way.

Anyone know if there is an update for the Insight? I followed the instructions, which led nowhere. Sent me to https://usb.honda.com but there wasn't even a choice for the Insight there...
No updates from Honda yet. I assume the usb option will be available once an update is available. The 10th gen Honda Accord use the same software and the last update for it was April 2018 (https://owners.honda.com/Documentum/ota/2018_Accord_Sedan.pdf). The Insight launched in June 2018 so all Insights already have that update.

Could always use your phone as a wifi hotspot or park near a store with free wifi like mcdonalds/starbucks.:wink: The Touring has a 4G LTE data connection but not sure if checking for updates work on it.

Tested Apple CarPlay with the latest 13.1 iOS beta which was released today. Still doesn't work with the DII Nav. Apple did add HUD/second screen support in CarPlay iOS 13 so I guess it really does need Honda to update the infotainment software for DII Nav to function with CarPlay.
Pffttt...good luck on Honda updating that. They don’t seem interested at all in updating the software of the Display Audio despite numerous bugs.

I've been following the software release notes for the below cars that have the newer infotainment system.
Honda has been actively pushing out updates to the Odyssey, Pilot, and Passport.
  • B.1.0.8
  • B.1.0.9
  • B.1.0.10
  • B.1.0.11
  • B.1.0.12
  • B.1.014
  • B1.0.06
  • B.1.0.21 [12/13/18]
  • B.1.0.26 [8/29/19]
Those 3 cars share similar build numbers that start with B1.0.XX. The Insight shares similar build numbers to the Accord. Maybe the Accord and Insight infotainment software have less urgent bugs?:plain:

Latest build numbers from Honda TSBs
Insight 18AE-1945-001
Accord 18AA-1945-001

Edit:
Found the above going through Honda TSBs. It's interesting that the Pilot, Odyssey, and Passport are running on Android Lollipop. While the Accord and Insight are running on Android Marshmallow even though they all share a similar user interface.

Maybe 'lack of lawsuits' also puts updates on the Accord/Insight software at the bottom of the list. Maybe if we start something for the Accord/Insight, it'll make it higher on Honda's priorities...?

The Odyssey and Pilot have a class action lawsuit against them for the head unit, as you previously flagged. The new updates Honda has been pushing 'looks' like them trying to show 'some' action to minimize/manage their legal liability - https://www.gen3insight.com/forum/11640-post12.html

I forgot about that lawsuit, thanks for bringing it up. Lawsuit has expanded to more states since my last post in April. Honda Infotainment Lawsuit Says Systems Crash and Freeze

Going through the Odyssey forum it seems like these updates also bring in some new bugs each time they fix something. No updates could be good thing depending on how you look at it. Our head units seem more stable than what the Odyssey, Pilot, and Passport got.

Agree! Given the alternatives, the Insight's head unit is the best Honda offers as of now. Compared to the older-looking interface on other models and/or major glitches with lawsuit, the Insight's occasional reboot and quirks seem very minimal.

The download took longer than the install for me but everything was done within 15 minutes. It took 2 years but Honda finally utilized the OTA capability. :D

Is this only for the Touring? I have an EX and it says I'm up to date with 18AE-2047-001
It's for both 2019-2020 EX(I have the EX) & Touring Insights. 18AE-2071-001 is the build for the new update. You already got it. Did you recently buy your Insight?

Edit: Oh wait you've 2047 not 2071. Hmm... You might want to try the USB method if your Insight doesn't show the update. I only found out due to update available notification (down arrow in notification tab) and got the update by looking in there.
