Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ are both available on most of the vehicles in the new Honda lineup. Are you wondering how to connect to Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ in your new Honda Accord or Honda CR-V? It’s really very easy, just follow the steps in this guide from the experts at Lou Sobh Honda.

How to Connect to Apple CarPlay®

You’ll need an iPhone 5 or later version, and be in an area that supports CarPlay. Then, on your iPhone, go to Settings > Siri & Search, and turn Siri on. Next, follow these steps to connect your phone to your Honda:

  1. Plug your phone into the CarPlay® USB port, which should be labeled with the CarPlay® logo.
  2. If your Honda is equipped with a wireless Bluetooth® connection, go to Settings > General > CarPlay® > Available Cars, and select your car.
  3. Start the vehicle and leave it running.
  4. Ask Siri for what you need by either pressing and holding the Voice Control button on your steering wheel, or touching and holding the CarPlay® Home button on your touchscreen until Siri appears.

How to Connect to Android Auto™

You’ll need Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or a more recent version. Here at Lou Sobh Honda we’ve, found that Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) works best. Here’s how to connect Android Auto™:

  1. Turn on Android Auto™ in your car’s settings.
  2. Download the Android Auto™ app from Google Play. When you plug your smartphone into your car with the compatible USB cable, you’ll receive a prompt to download the app.
  3. Unlock your phone’s screen.
  4. Review the Safety Information and Android Auto™ permissions.
  5. Turn on notifications for Android Auto™.
