Thumbs up Getting To Know Your HRV

Now that a number of people on here have purchased their HRV, thought we need a thread to track on the things people didn't know, but learn about their HRV. Maybe something that wasn't in the user manual or something you think most others would want to know, but didn't find the information readily available from your dealership.

The Brake Hold feature is nice, but it needs to be re-established for each time you start the car. The salesman was floored when I showed him how that actually worked. He thought it was part of the parking brake! Also, with the EX-L you can control pretty much everything with your voice. Guess I won't have to worry too much about putting finger prints on the big touch screen.

On the LX, there is a day/night button on the upper left hand corner of the radio screen. Obviously it toggles day (bright) and night (dim) displays. However, a third touch will blacken the screen. Radio changes will briefly be shown on the top of the screen before going blank again. Nice!

@bbhondaguy : the brake hold, when enabled, allows you to take your foot off the brake at a standstill while keeping the car stopped. A press of the accelerator disables the brake hold and allows you to continue driving like normal. Mostly I think it's useful for stop-and-go traffic or long lights where your foot gets fatigued holding the brake down.

Is the voice control feature of the EX the same as that of the EX-L Navi? Nothing I've yet seen in the literature to suggest yes or no.

The EX-L Navi has many more voice features. In my EX I believe I can only do phone commands. I tried some of the other voice features like climate control, and the commands aren't understood.

Is this - EX or EX-L - with an Android as well as a iPhone?

Here's the Voice Recognition guide:

I think for things like climate control, it's completely independent of the phone. Note that even on the EX, Siri Eyes Free is supported, so you can use that car's mic (and button on steering wheel) to launch Siri and command as desired..
