When it comes to Honda, integration, connectivity, and innovation are key. With many Honda vehicles comes Apple CarPlay™, which keeps you connected and lets you access your favorite phone apps through your infotainment system. Here’s how Apple CarPlay™ works in your Honda.
Apple CarPlay™ makes every drive safer by giving you hands-free access to your phone through integration within your infotainment system.
Compatible third-party apps
The list of compatible apps is extensive — if you want entertainment on the go, you can use apps like Stitcher™, Spotify®, and Audible to stream your playlists, podcasts or audiobooks. If you want to keep up with all the latest news in your world, you can stream CBS Radio and NPR One. For staying connected with your friends and family, you can send messages through WhatsApp.
All of these iPhone apps can blend seamlessly into your HondaLink® infotainment system, allowing you to use the apps with just a simple tap on your touch screen. What’s more, HondaLink® and Apple CarPlay™ integration allow you to access Siri® voice assistance. Simply ask Siri® to relay information, make calls, play music, or access information, and she will comply without you ever having to take your hands off the wheel.
Honda vehicles equipped with Apple CarPlay™ compatibility also feature steering wheel-mounted buttons that allow you to access your phone, messages, maps, apps, and music.
Pairing Your Device
Setting up Apple CarPlay™ to work in your Honda is easy. You simply plug your iPhone into the USB port labeled with the CarPlay icon, which should bring up the CarPlay Home screen on your display. You can also use Honda HandFreeLink® to link your phone to your vehicle via Bluetooth® connectivity if applicable.
