Available on many new 2018 Honda vehicles, Apple CarPlay™ is a feature integrated with the Display Audio Touch-Screen that allows Apple iPhone® users to connect their smartphone to the infotainment system.
When the iPhone® is integrated with Apple CarPlay™, you can access iPhone® apps directly from the touch screen. And because this system connects with just a lightning cable, you don’t have to worry about hooking up an auxiliary cord, mounting your phone so it’s easy to see while you drive, or even the possibility of your battery draining.
You’re probably using smartphone apps when you drive already, like the navigation app for when you’re driving to an unfamiliar place, or music streaming so you can listen to your personal music collection while you drive instead of dealing with the radio.
Apple CarPlay™ lets you make phone calls, use podcast and audiobook apps, send messages with voice to text, and much more without ever touching your phone. Apple CarPlay™ will play your music, read messages, and more through your Honda’s advanced speaker system, delivering crisp, clear audio, and none of the crackling that comes with using an AUX cable.
Apple CarPlay™ is more convenient to use thanks to the accessible touch-screen and cord-free connectivity, but it’s also much safer. Smartphone apps are incredibly useful for driving, but using a phone while you drive can lead to distracted driving and can lead to an accident. With Apple CarPlay™, you can even send texts safely, without ever taking your hands off the wheel.
With Honda’s innovative Display Audio Touch-Screen with Siri® voice control, you don’t even have to look away from the road. And if you do use the touch-screen, the larger icons mean you’ll find the app you’re looking for faster and get your eyes back on the road faster than if you were squinting at your phone screen.
