"Me too..." my 2012 Accord EX-L with navi exhibits the same symptoms. This is definitely a bug, not a hardware failure.

So if the fix will be available in August (as others have indicated), that probably coincides with the annual release of the map updates -- and why Honda customer service is giving that date.

But I'm questioning if there WILL be an update, because with the 2021 update, there was this disclaimer: "This 2021 Map Update will be the final map update release for this system and will be available while supplies last."

With the 2013 model year, the navigation system generation changed. I don't know if 2013 and later models are affected by this bug or not; everything I've read so far seems to indicate 2012 and earlier. So 2013 and later will get updates in August, but will 2012 and earlier get updates? I don't have high hopes.

And even if they do relent and ship an update in 2022, it will most likely cost you -- the regular price of the update is $149 (but sometimes they've sent out emails offering a $99 price).
I have a 2008 Accord V6 3.5L and having similar issues (but not exactly the same). Up until Wednesday 23/02/22, everything was good. However, I had to replace the alternator and what do you know, now the nav doesn't connect with the clock. The clock is more than 3 hours ahead and the calendar has reverted to 2002. Similar to others when I try to change the clock on the nav system, it just reverts back to 12.00am. I called Honda and they told me to bring it in for a diagnostic- $165 AUD mind you. Nobody mentioned this known error.
