Apple CarPlay Equipped Honda Vehicles

When it comes to entertainment options, having flexibility is important. While Honda's built-in infotainment system is as robust and intuitive as you'll find, sometimes the comfort of your smartphone is too tempting to pass up. Avid Apple users can stay connected to their iPhone even while driving select Honda vehicles thanks to the streamlined utility of Apple CarPlay.

Using Apple CarPlay allows drivers to make hands-free phone calls, send and receive text messages, get directions, or listen to your iTunes library. You can navigate the Apple CarPlay user interface by using the touchscreen controls or by voice command via the Siri functionality.

Supported apps that work with Apple CarPlay include the iPhone's proprietary Phone, Messages, Maps, Audiobooks, and Music apps and there are several third party apps that will work as well. Not every app on your phone will work and you'll have to be using iOS 7.1 or later on iPhone 5 models or newer.

How Does it Work?

Setting up Apple CarPlay is a painless process. Simply take you Lightning Charging cable that you normally use to recharge you phone and connect the USB end of the cable into the available port. You phone will automatically detect the Honda vehicle's infotainment system and display a prompt asking you for permission to connect to Apple CarPlay. When this happens, press the "Allow" button.

In turn, your infotainment system will also display a message asking you for permission to access your phone. This will only happen the first time you connect your phone to the system, and you need to select "Always enable" to prevent the message from reappearing.

Now on the infotainment system's home screen, you'll notice that the button prompt previously labeled "smartphone" has been replaced by "Apple CarPlay." As you might surmise, hitting the "Apple CarPlay" button accesses the program, and from there you're free to navigate the program.
