Whenn I call in the car, a lot of callers tells me that they can`t hear me. I hear the one who I call very good, but they hear me very bad!! Everytime I go to a honda daeler but they cannot fix the problem. It seems that the memory of the Honda HRV is to small. Cause all the phonenumbers are standing in the Memory of Honda HRV. The car is very great, but calling in the car is very difficult. And most of the Time I call in the car.
