Somehow I couldn't find how to turn off Navigation completely and I think it's talking to me about traffic every so often. How do I turn it off completely?

Bonus question: is traffic info internet (ATT) based? FM based? Is it just highway or all roads?

Thanks!

In case you haven't seen it previously, an 'owners manual' for the Touring navigation system is available - http://techinfo.honda.com/rjanisis/pubs/OM/AH/ATXM1919NM/enu/ATXM1919NM.PDF

The traffic info is GPS/satellite based, so I don't think there's a way to completely disable (assuming this is what you mean by 'turn off completely'?). It's present on the EX (and I'm guessing the LX too?), though not enabled. CivicX forum members have hacked EX trims to get Touring-trim navigation capabilities on their cars.

Per the Owners Manual (p343), GPS/satellite information is used by "Honda and Providers" to provide traffic information. The Navigation Manual (p101) also mentions the info relies on clear signal and information from local traffic providers, which varies by region. - https://www.gen3insight.com/forum/2...ace/62-hondalink-navigation-live-traffic.html

Thanks! -- sorry I wasn't too clear, I just want to turn off the navigation app completely, so it's not running in the background (and not talking). But it seems that there isn't a way to do that.

Ah, gotcha. I haven't seen an 'off' button in the navigation descriptions. But there's a navigation-specific volume control that can be dialed down to zero to eliminate the talking, as a partial solution:

Nav Manual p32: HOME --> Settings --> System --> System Volumes --> System Volumes --> Navigation Guidance Volume --> (select volume level) --> OK

Apps can be removed/rearranged off of the home screen, but "apps will not be deleted by deleting the icon on the home screen." (OM p274)

The traffic alerts are most likely coming from SiriusXM traffic. They charge $4/month for it so I assume you're currently on a trial period since you recently purchased your Insight. https://www.siriusxm.com/infotainment
