08 TSX with 09 Navi software?    (Score: 1, Normal) 03-27-2008 14:23

I have the 2008 TSX with the NAV system and I was looking at the write ups and specs for the new 2009's. One of the features this year is ilinc and the navigation software's ability to recognize the track lists from the ipod. I am wondering if it is possible to put this year's software in last year's NAV system so that we old owners could have the ipod info displayed?

Any ideas? I would assume that the system itself is just a computer and the software would be bootable on the old hardware.

Thanks

I'm almost 100% certain that they will be incompatible. First of all, the '08 doesn't have the hardware USB interface to the iPod. Secondly, the '08 doesn't have the "MMI" - multi-mode interface dial - the huge knob in the dash - and that's the sole interface for the 2009 TSX navi system.

The ilinc is an option on my car so i'm not too worried - aside from shelling out the ridiculous price. I see what you're saying about the control knob though The software will be written for all the functions of the knob versus different buttons and - I would assume - touch screen control.

I wouldn't shell out for the ilinc unless I also gained song info on the screen. It's just too expensive otherwise.

Thanks for the thoughts.
