You can do some things like zoom the screen and push a couple buttons to tell you when your next turn is but you can't do any programming like routes or nearest. I guess Honda wants you to look down the road for cages on cell phones. I assume that when the Garmin senses any speed it will lock out these features. There are some posts here that explain ways around that feature. I love my 06 Navi for the size of the screen, but it has its shortcomings.
