Default New Honda Maintenance Schedules

So, how does the new Honda maintenance minder work? It gives a percentage
left on oil. There are no mileage schedules on the owners manyal anymore.
It tells how to reset after changing oil, but what about other items?
Timing Belt, Tire rotation, etc.

Is the oil change based on engine revolutions? Time? What exactally is
being monitored?

It may be better for the driver who takes it to the dealer when the light
comes on, but personally I like to track the mileage, and do most of my own
maintenance.

BMW bases it on revs, and uses multipliers for period of high stress
such as cold engine and high RPM.

General Motors pioneered this kind of predictive monitoring and has
published technical papers on it. Perhaps Honda is following suit. The
GM system looks at total engine revolutions, cold starts, high
temperature events and a bunch of other factors to deduce when the oil
is likely to be "used up".
