Anyways, about the quoted post. That is what my doubt is. If it can be done then surely there is no point wasting my money on stupid SD card. Can anyone please help with the files.

I'll but a SD card from market and copy the files from here.
Thanks in advance,
Any help on the bold text? If possible can anyone share his map files to me?

There is a chance of corrupting the data card and the files stored inside if we try and hack into to the system's folder files.

I would suggest you to contact the tech support of iGo and ask them what can be done in your case. iGo is a navigation app for both Android and iOS available on their stores, Digipad is also an Android Tablet so they will help you sort your problem.

Their website is www.igonavigation.com.

Reg maps, installing Google Maps through the hack in other threads, wasn't great user experience for me. Remember, you'll be installing Google Maps- 3-4 years old version, compatible with Android 2.3. Add to that , internet sharing over bluetooth wasn't as reliable with repeated connection drops and now I'm back to Digipad maps.

HalfOctave, If you are in Chennai, I can share map SD card with you

You can buy a dlink usb dongle from Amazon that works perfectly well with the WiFi of digipad. I bought one, and the internet works quite well on the YouTube app I installed via side-loading.

Does the facelifted Honda City have a mute button option on the steering wheel?

I need that feature badly and I think it is there in the Hyundai Verna.

Joy, I checked yesterday there's no mute button on the steering wheel.

How does the build quality of the new City feel like? The official review says it has a light build quality. Does it feel safe and not tinny like some of the Maruti's or does it feel fairly robust? I understand Honda has reduced weight and may have cut costs but I am concerned about overall safety. Also is the service interval 3 or 6 months for the new city? Do the Honda guys keep calling every 3 months for service like they do for my Civic?

Thanks.

My father owns the ZX CVT and I have some driving experience on it. IMHO if your benchmark is the Germans then yes, the overall fit and finish may seem a bit on the lighter side but in any case it is better than the Marutis. One doesn't feel unsafe even on expressway speeds.

Since Honda uses synthetic oil, I agreed.

It is still 6 months. However, IIRC 1st service - 1 month, 2nd - 3 month and 3rd - 6 month and then every 6 months.
Regarding your servicing query, the above is what I managed to fish out from this thread. I will however confirm it with my father and let you know.

Cheers!

I have an old gen '05 Elantra GLS, the City's build is light and plastics are hard, but they're put together fine. I had a rattle that was laid to rest during the first service. My headlights weren't working when I took delivery that boiled down to a faulty light stalk that was promptly set right. I have taken 3 outstation trips in the last 10 months of ownership and has always been a pleasure, all the time there were 4 people (incl me:driver) with boot full of luggage and she delivered around 16 kmpl. The ownership has been pleasurable.

Parts are light weight for sure. Have battled with a rattle on A-frame plastic cladding twice and touchwood, it's in fixed state now. When rattle started, I realised the plastics were thin and got into a habit of sensing every other part for their strength and no surprise there. Every part - plastic or metal looks to be light weight. Application of smaller pressure over your thumb, most do flex. My view is that the body is only a wrapper and shouldn't expect any safety requirement addressed by them.
However, there's no direct bearing of above on driving experience in highways, city roads, as the mechanical aspects of steering, engine, braking power are really excellent and there's no doubt on those letting you down.

Though my ownership is limited to only 3 months, car always instilled confidence when driving and I've no regrets to that. As time goes by, I'm expecting car, even if it lets me down on the plastics (ready to face rattles), do great on the mechanics for long years to come

Quick question: Are the seats real leather or leatherette in the ZX variant?
If its genuine leather, is it possible to order one without genuine leather?
I wouldnt want the steering wheel cover and the other leather bits as well.

I doubt this would be possible as level of micro customisation that you need is not offered off the shelf, but you could still write to Honda and check if they offer it. Else ask them what kind of leather is used. I am sure they must be taking religious beliefs in to consideration, when offering in India atleast.

A few more questions. Is the steering light at parking speeds or needs considerable effort? I find my Civic on the heavier side to drive in traffic. Leaving out the fact that your car is a automatic is the car nimble to maneuver in traffic?

Thanks

Steering is light and car is nimble in the city. It's a pleasure to manoeuvre the car in traffic; very light and easy to close gaps due to creep function. Sedate driving sees you using the brakes less and using the gas pedal more (step on and of the gas pedal). My Elantra (hydraulic PS) feels as heavy as a truck in comparison. They are like chalk and cheese.
