Honda Apple CarPlay™ Overview

Apple CarPlay™ in Ann Arbor Michigan

What is Apple CarPlay™?

Apple CarPlay™ is a smarter and safer way to use your iPhone in a Honda vehicle. The functionality prevents you from fumbling around with your iPhone, thus, making sure your eyes stay on the road.

AppleCarPlay™ projects apps from your iPhone and displays them on the infotainment display. In order to take advantage of this feature, you’ll need at least an iPhone 5 and IOS 7.1.

How Does Apple CarPlay™ Work?

To begin, you must connect your iPhone to the front USB port with a charging cable. Then, from the home screen on the infotainment display select Apple CarPlay™. This will initiate the syncing process and mirror your iPhone apps onto the infotainment display.

There are three ways to control Apple CarPlay™:

Voice Control

Use Siri Voice Control

To use this control, simply press and hold the voice control button on the steering wheel.

Touchscreen Display

Use The Touchscreen Display

Using the display, you can open and close apps on the home screen. This is by far the most straightforward method of using Apple CarPlay™.

Audio Controls & Knobs

Use The Knobs

Physical buttons, controls, and knobs found inside certain Honda are integrated and work alongside the touchscreen and Siri options when using Apple CarPlay™.

Note: Once your phone is connected to CarPlay™, the screen will lock preventing any temptation to use it while driving.
