    can’t figure out how to get the large owners’ manual in a bound paper copy.

    It appears that Honda Canada only provides a PDF. This isn’t useful while away from my home.

    Americans can order one. How can Canadian owners?

    As an aside, why wouldn’t they make a searchable manual part of the onboard software?

    I just download PDF files to my phone. That way I can have many owners manuals for the car, boat, camera , etc. at hand.

    Bump. Has anyone figured out how to order the paper manual in Canada? Although I'll definitely be keeping a copy of the PDF on my phone, there's nothing quite like flipping through a paper manual!

    You can go back to your dealer and request it. It even says so in your manual in case the dealer refuses, it's on the first couple pages of the small owner's quick reference guide. I asked and the dealer pulled out the big momma copy for free!

    I actually got an Owner's Manual from my dealer without even requesting it. However, I didn't get an Owner's Guide. Do I really need the guide if I have the manual? I didn't get a Navigation Manual either. Wondering if I should go back to my dealer and request it.

    As I understand it, in the USA you have to order the both Car and Nav manual online but in Canada you just go to your dealer. If you have the Touring you should get the Nav manual.
    The guide is just kind of a quick start abbreviated version of the almost 600 p manual.

    Here is the url for us Yanks to order:
    I don’t know why Honda makes it harder for us in the US to get a printed manual.
    Note that in the US, you have to wait until the dealer enters your info in the Honda system to both order manuals and set up Honda Link. It appears her giubhave to enter exactly what the dealer enters. And several of us have reported needing multiple entries to get the manual ordered. Mine failed repeatedly until I entered the name exactly as on the sales contract. If you are successful you will get a confirmatory email and much later a notification of shipment. Mine took about 5 weeks.

    I emailed Honda Canada a few weeks ago regarding this. They responded that the parts department at the dealership has all the details regarding ordering owner's manuals. (Note I haven't gotten around to doing this yet).

    I received mine about 7 weeks after the purchase and 4 weeks after the receipt of the car. Hurrah!

    Hmm.... Interesting, I just setup the Honda link right after I got home with my car, it only asked for the VIN and that's it. Honda should have the VIN before they ship the car to the dealer so there shouldn't be any waiting for them to enter it to their database.

    I thought it had to be activated to link the VIN to the buyer, otherwise anyone could read the VIN off a parked car on the lot and set up a Honda Link to it after getting in the car and requesting the code. I based that on my salesman saying he couldn’t set it up until the dealer’s Office entered me into the “System”. Mine would not send me an activation code on the head unit until the next day. So either your dealer was super fast or my salesman was blowing smoke up my you know what and it was always ready.

    I got my manual about 2 weeks after I ordered it. Must have got lucky.

    Mine comes without the small owner's quick guide, can you please take the picture of the page which shows that info so I will forward to my dealer in order to request them for the owner's manual. Thank you.
