Expert Quotes:

The navi's functionality is present, but compared to nearly everything else on the market, both its user interface and feature count lag far behind the curve.
Autoblog

we like the standard 5-inch color display up near the windshield almost as much as we dislike the comically oversized buttons on the stereo
Motor Trend

The system can read incoming messages aloud and send pre-determined messages out, like "I'm running late," as long as you have a compatible smartphone.

The company took great pains to boast about it, and then said that features like in-car texting were compatible only with two models of Blackberry phones.
Popular Mechanics


For 2013, the Honda CR-V keeps pace with the market in terms of connectivity, and it includes a well-rounded feature set; the only caution, for those who like to add some extras like a navigation system or satellite radio, is that to get them you may have to move all the way up to the much more expensive EX-L model.

Bluetooth hands-free connectivity and streaming audio are standard on the entire model line, and the i-MID control screen clearly displays information and is controlled via a simple directional toggle on the steering wheel. The system is compatible with SMS texting (reading and pre-set replying) and a Pandora app, with the screen capable of displaying cover art, turn-by-turn directions, and a trip computer/fuel economy screen. You can also set the home screen to display personal pictures as wallpaper.

Otherwise, the trim levels of the CR-V will be familiar to anyone who's shopped for a Honda recently. There are LX, EX, and EX-L trims, with a navigation system and rear entertainment system reserved for the top version of the EX-L, these versions do get some upgraded interior trim plus leather upholstery, a ten-way driver’s seat, heated front seats, automatic climate control, heated mirrors, and a higher-power (328-watt) audio system with subwoofer.

Also available at the top of the lineup is a rear entertainment system with seven-inch display, DVD player, wireless headphones, and remote.

 

Conclusion

Connectivity features are offered throughout the lineup, and available entertainment systems are on part with those in luxury vehicles.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
