Strange menus. This can happen when the software becomes corrupt. We can sometimes resolve this, but often it needs returning to the factory.

There is no driver side Lane Watch. Instead, Honda is now putting a convex outer edge on the driver-door mirror of all 2015 Fits and calling it the Expanded View Driver’s Mirror. That will make it less likely to miss a car almost alongside on the driver side, as long as the driver bothers to look.

a) good idea, b) let’s see what happens, c) gas in the US is so cheap vs. rest-of-world that once mpg is the 40s, Americans see diminishing returns. Or Honda could build a Fit diesel so efficient that if you start with a full tank, get on the highway and coast down the hill, your fuel tank will probably spill out the excess

If you do not have a picture on your monitor then look very carefully at the screen. If you can see a very dark image on the screen then the backlight has failed. It is the end of the road for the monitor and replacement is necessary.

Smoke! This is easy as the monitor has failed. Smoke is unusual but it can happen. If you are just fitting it then you have wired it in wrong. If it has been running for some time then it may be a voltage surge. We have met some vehicles that destroy monitors on a regular basis. Often ex-military vehicles do this. A heavy duty voltage regulator is a long term solution and we would suggest that one is fitted on the first time a monitor fails in this way.

If there are large black areas on the monitor screen then this is caused by the front of the screen being pressed too hard. This is physical damage and not covered by the guarantee.

If your monitor has power and a completely black screen then try it without a camera plugged in. We have known some camera faults cause this to happen. Without a camera plugged in you should get a blue screen with “no signal” showing. This would indicate the monitor is working correctly. Some monitors will automatically power off when no signal is received – often takes 10 seconds. This again is normal. Pressing the on/off button should turn it back on.

This new version of HondaLink also includes the Aha content aggregator (internet radio, podcasts, Twitter and Facebook updates); a Connect app that leads the user to location searches, weather, and messaging; and a Launcher app for other third party apps, apparently meaning those apps get placement not on the main screen but one level down.

If you are sure it is getting power then test it out on a different monitor – they can be fed into the yellow RCA socket of TVs. If you have no joy then returning for testing is the only option.

Having these lane watch features makes me question the competence of the average driver. I do a ton of miles every year and don’t find it hard to check before changing lanes. It’s just a question of being aware of your surroundings.

Display Audio also integrates Apple Siri Eyes Free mode, so iPhone users can invoke Siri by pressing (and holding) the steering wheel Talk button. Honda notes, “Using Eyes Free mode, Siri takes hands-free functionality even further and helps minimize distractions by keeping an iOS device’s screen from lighting up.” But it also means you get no direct control of the phone, not even of apps that can’t be displayed on the LCD.

If you are sure the monitor has power and it does not respond to the on off button then the chances are it has failed. It is worth disconnecting it from the power and reconnecting. We have known a monitor “freeze” and is reset by this.

If the monitor has an LED that lights up when it has power, then if this is not lit check there is 12v going to the monitor. Monitors often have a black filter box and inside is a small fuse. It is not uncommon for these to blow or even drop out of the fuse holder.

Remember do not have nightmares after reading this. Considering the hostile operating environment these are used in the failure rates are low. A system should give many years of use and should outlive the vehicle in many cases.

For those with money to spend Honda will offer a few extra luxuries on the 2015 Fit: keyless access and pushbutton start, leather seats, and a sunroof.

Many driver’s ed courses also fail to properly educate students on proper mirror arrangement. The rear view mirror is for looking behind you, the side mirrors are for covering the blind spot! I see a ton of mirrors that just point in the same direction as the rear view mirror, it’s ridiculous.

The new generation looks to LCDs for much of the information they need and will use in life…Its that simple. Its a clearer view without blind spots, negating the effects of fogged up or unclear windows, and as the LCD is already there, its not a costly option.
