How to Connect Apple CarPlay®

If Apple CarPlay® is not connecting in your Honda vehicle, first confirm that you have an iPhone 5 or later, and that your present area supports Apple CarPlay®. Next, activate Siri on your iPhone by navigating to Settings > Siri & Search. Then follow these steps for how to connect Apple CarPlay® to your Honda infotainment system:

  1. Plug your phone into the CarPlay USB port, which will be labeled with the CarPlay logo.
  2. If your Honda supports a wireless Bluetooth® connection, navigate to Settings > General > CarPlay > Available Cars and select your model.
  3. Start your car and keep it running.
  4. Use voice control to ask Siri to display the content you need (whether GPS navigation, audiobooks, or another app) by pressing and holding the Voice Control button on your steering wheel. Alternatively, touch and hold the CarPlay Home button on your touchscreen until Siri activates.

How to Connect Android Auto™

Just like when Apple CarPlay® is not connecting, step one for how to connect Android Auto™ properly is to confirm that your phone supports the technology. Android Auto™ requires that your smartphone be running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or a newer version, although Fall River drivers report that Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) works best. Here’s how to connect Android Auto™ to your Honda infotainment system:

  1. On your infotainment screen, navigate to your Honda vehicle’s settings. Turn on Android Auto™.
  2. Connect your smartphone to your Honda vehicle via the compatible USB cable. You should then receive a prompt to download the Android Auto™ app from Google Play.
  3. Download the Android Auto™. With downloading complete, unlock your phone screen.
  4. Review Safety Info and Android Auto™ permissions.
  5. Turn on notifications for Android Auto™.
  6. Select Android Auto™ On your Honda vehicle’s infotainment display.
