It is "Honda HFT" on V CVT.

Understood. The devices on the cars are very different.you have what is called the Digipad 2. Is that what the device on V variant is called?
On this - mine - the device pairs once for phone. But you need to pair again from the "source" button (below the "radio" button) to play music. I have not tried navigation, I don't care right now - probably it is not available.
Also, from the settings, in the bluetooth menu, a mobile device can be "forgotten". IIRC, only 2 devices will be remembered at a time. Do try telling Digipad 2 to forget older / other pairings.

Hi,
I have the same combination. Honda jazz VX model with Samsung A50. I have no issues in pairing. To be precise, can you please share an image of your AVN. Mine is 2016 model. Looks like you have a newer version.

Hello Everyone,

I did a small mod to enhance the initial pick up. My uncle has Jazz stick shift and he was always cribbing about the low end torque and was even planning to sell within 3 months of purchase. My CVT model also struggles with 5 people on board. I just used one small plastic piece from some toy and brought down the air intake pipe by an inch.

I have test driven my CVT model for 7k kms and my uncle has already completed 10k kms using this setup. We both have driven during the rainy season and water has not entered the air filter. There is a slight increase in pick up in shift variant. We can easily find the difference when driven in mountain areas like Valparai and Munnar.Usually when I had to downshift to 1st gear to climb steep slope , most of the times we can now do it in 2nd itself. My uncle is very happy with the marginal increase in low end torque. Kerala roads dont allow us to drive more than 100 so no clue how the high end performance will be.

I saw slight decrease in mileage in my CVT variant , but the stick variant is delivering round about the same mileage. It might be mostly the way I drive. Keep cleaning the air filter after 3-4k kms. I think this is better than spending money on after market filters which does not filter out dust completely.

Let me know your observations. If i get time will fabricate a clamp so no one will be able to make out the changes

My car has done around 19k kms, and gave it for the six monthly service today. The service advisor said I need to get the 20k kms service done. As part of that, he mentioned AC cleaner and disinfectant which is Rs 885. Is it worth getting this done? My car is 4 years old. He said they clean and disinfect all the vents. Wanted to check if it was worth getting the cleaning done.

Is it also recommended to get AC filter and Air filters replaced at this time?

Hi! AC cleaning and disinfectant treatment are Value added services provided by the dealer. The task that they perform can be done by you at home at a fraction of the cost. I generally avoid getting anything that is not in the service handbook done during routine service. Some of these are easy DIYs and for some there are FNGs.

Regarding AC and Air filters, stick to the schedule mentioned in the service handbook. I do get the AC filter changed every 6-8 months as I am highly allergic to pollens.

Hope this helps.

Thanks did you get the service handbook at time of purchase? Trying to remember if I got it or not, as I purchased a few months old Jazz from another person

User Manual has the Service schedule in it. There is no separate service booklet as such. Please refer to the user manual and decide on the service your car needs. Stay vigilant or the ASC will rub on unnecessary services which are not at all necessary

Guys, Unique problem becoming very repetitive
The digipad 2 screen gets frozen after completing navigation and then dosent switch off.
Tried everything finally after half hour it randomly gets switched off.
This is after using Apple car play. The android auto experience is worse.
Last service i had checked and confirmed from HASS this was the latest software update.
any suggestions ?

Try this - park in a safe location, then shift to reverse which should bring up the back up camrea. Wait for a second and then again shift to N or P. Check if the system becomes responsive. Please do let know your finding.

How is this going? I'm unable to digest the fact, that, lowering the air intake pipe by an inch has actually increased the low end torque. Did Honda engineers missed this?

I'm still using it on manual variant of Jazz. It is basically similar to K&N concept, either you use a filter with bigger pores and allow more dirt or allow more air to enter the chamber by lowering the air intake pipe. Honda engineers have missed many things and I don't find them any special.
