Took a ride last night with our Goldwing Chapter and the bike rolled over 10,000 miles.
Can't say enough how much I love this bike.
It has been warm here in So. Calif. and at 8pm when I pulled over to take this picture it was still 79 degrees.

To delete a saved route, 'select' it fro the list and then select 'delete' from the options presented.

That’s what I like about the Honda system. It’s sooo intuitive.

I'm confused by the response.
Sarcasm?
What am i missing?
Did my grey hair kick in again?


What's not intuitive about looking at a list of items and the selecting and deleting the ones you don't want?


If you want to delete a 'previous destination', wouldn't you first have to look at the 'previous destination list' to see which ones were there?

I was referring to the ‘previous destination’ procedure in your post. (I find other things counterintuitive too, but let’s not get hung up on that).

I expect if you select a previous destination from the list, you would get another submenu with add’l options, one of which would be ‘delete destination’. You don’t get that. It just starts calcing the route. To me it is not intuitive to ‘press and hold’ for some length of time in order to get another menu to delete something. Honda sometimes uses submenus, and sometimes separate menus to get to where you want to go, without any real consistency, in my opinion.

Some things you press and hold to get something and other times you just select and follow the menu. How do you determine when to press and hold, other than reading instructions in a manual? (Of course you should read the manual, but we don’t always remember all the nuances). Intuitive logic would allow a user to follow a visual cue through a menu tree on a consistent basis, without using a manual. Another example is the joystick for the nav. To zoom in, you press up. To zoom out, you press down. To me, up would equate to a higher up view. Intuitive it seems. But not so Honda.

I guess if press and release doesn't work then try press and hold?

Several buttons on the bike do one thing using 'press and release', and a 2nd function using 'press AND hold'.

Mute/source button for example.
Side arrow t advance one song, versus advance to next folder is another.

I found that going back to manual after having run the bike for awhile gave opportunity to pick up how to do more features. And I know I still don't have them all.
Sometimes just knowing it must be possible and I can then get it by trial and error. Sometimes that doesn't work, I go back to manual -- and then wonder why I forgot that item.

I always learn better by doing -- and by repetition. Do it a few times and I'm no longer trial and error and not using the manual.



I didn't/don't like the way zoom works either.

I trained myself to think if it as UP for More detail and DOWN for Less detail. For me made it is easier to keep straight YMMV.
