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 with less driver distraction.


The Feature:

The Clarity Plug-In Hybrid features Display Audio with an 8-inch electrostatic touch-screen. It is the gateway to many audio sources, vehicle settings, Apple CarPlay®16 and Android Auto™17 integration—and the available 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 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 the Google Assistant. It makes using the phone easier and reduces the potential for driver distraction.
  • Android Auto™17 and Apple CarPlay®16 are also compatible with a number of third-party smartphone apps like iHeartRadio54. When downloaded to the user’s Android™47 phone or iPhone®46, 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.
