Display Audio with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ Integration

What’s the Benefit?

The Display Audio enables users to engage their audio system and Web content on a large, easy-to-use interface to help stay connected to their world while reducing the potential for driver distraction.

The Feature:

The Clarity features Display Audio with an 8-inch electrostatic touch-screen.

  • It is the gateway to many audio sources, vehicle settings, Apple CarPlay™16, Android Auto™17 and HondaLink®22 features—and the Garmin-based, Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™34.
  • To take advantage of all the available features requires a connection between the system and the user’s smartphone via Bluetooth®1 HandsFreeLink® and a USB cable plugged into the left-hand USB Smartphone/Audio Interface2 in the center stack.
    • After pairing a compatible iPhone®46 or Android™47 phone to the Display Audio, some of the phone’s features can populate on the touch-screen.
    • So there’s no need to ever touch the phone while driving.
  • You can control phone features, including music and messaging, hands-free using Siri®28 or Google Voice. It makes using the phone easier and reduces the potential for driver distraction.
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are also compatible with a number of third-party smartphone apps like iHeart Radio; when downloaded to the user’s Android phone or iPhone, their icons will appear on the touch-screen and can be controlled by voice commands.
  • Display Audio with the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™34 incorporates a graphic interface and functionality developed in association with Garmin.
    • The Display Audio screen provides smartphone-like functionality, such as pinching to zoom in and out, swiping to scroll and tapping or sliding for volume control.
    • And the Clarity Electric system’s database features location data and mapping for charging stations as well.
