Have the two most common issues been fixed on the 2017 models?
We got ours in March 2017, HB Sport Blue, no issues at all for the infotainment. people just complaint the volume knob is not there, but I like the clean layout and appreciated it is not there. Use the Volume button on steering wheel and button is there and leave the touch screen and it is the coolest infotainment I've ever seen in the 21 - 30K range fuel efficient vechicle.
Infotainment system tested below features and all working perfectly in our 2017 UK built Civic HB Sport :
1 Browser run Youtube while gear in PARK. Works perfectly when connected WIFI to McDonald Restaurant FREE Wifi.
2 Tested the WIFI to my own cell phone data plan. Works perfectly without issue.
3 USB input in the glove box, plugged the USB thumb drive contains JPG and MOV files, play my own video with sounds to the car speakers, no issue, sound quality is so good. (Next to try, plug in a Seagate 1TB HDD with converted movie files like RMV, MKV, AVI, MPEG and more... to try, will posted later)
4 Wall paper setup using my own JPG testing. Works perfectly and my car is contains my family picture with some of my unique identity to the car, it is real MY civic.
5 Perform stress test smart phones connection for whole family with 5 smartphone connect to the infotainement altogehter at the same time (Maximum are six connection). Works perfectly, and each person can randomly play their lovely music via the OEM infotainment without any issue. So nice and smart.
1. Download apps from Google Play Store, like game app, try to connect our own Bluetooth Game PAD purchased from eBay, install and run the game and see whether the Infotainment will take it. Download N64 and GameBoy emulator, again, use the Bluetooth game pad and try out. Will post the result later.
2. Download Karaoke app from Google Play Store or other website like famous Angel Sing app. Connect our Bluetooth microphone with built in speaker (it is call Karaoke Q9 device), play the app and use the karaoke to sing inside the 2017 Honda Civic via OEM infotainment.
