Display Audio with HondaLink® plus Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ Integration (Special Edition and above)

What’s the Benefit?

The Display Audio enables users to engage their audio system and Web content on a large, engaging and easy-to-use interface.

The Feature:

Select CR-V trims feature Display Audio with a 7-inch electrostatic touch-screen.

  • The Display Audio screen provides smartphone-like functionality, such as pinching to zoom in and out, and swiping to scroll.
  • It is the gateway to many audio sources, vehicle settings, Apple CarPlay®16 and Android Auto™17 integration and HondaLink®23 features—and, on Touring trims, the 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 USB Smartphone/Audio Interface2 labeled with the phone icon at the front of the center console.
  • After pairing a compatible iPhone46 or Android™47 phone to the Display Audio, the phone’s features populate on the touch-screen—so there’s no need to ever touch the phone while driving.
  • Control phone features—including music and messaging—without touching the phone by using Siri® or Google Voice.
  • It makes using the phone easier while also reducing the potential for driver distraction.
  • Android Auto™17 and Apple CarPlay®16 are also compatible with a number of 3rd-party smartphone apps like iHeartRadio54.
  • When downloaded to the user’s Android or iPhone46, their icons will appear on the touch-screen and can be controlled by voice commands.
  • Compatible phones include iPhone 5 and newer, and most Android phones with Lollipop or newer operating system (OS).

The HondaLink®22 smartphone app suite of features includes service-appointment scheduling at Honda dealerships, location searches, weather information, service messages from Honda and much more.

  • These features and services become available after downloading the HondaLink app from the App Store or Google Play, then pairing the user’s smartphone to their vehicle.
  • Access HondaLink features in-car through the Display Audio or from anywhere else using the HondaLink smartphone app (cell signal required).
