Honda Apple CarPlay® Setup What is Apple CarPlay®?

Apple CarPlay® is a part of your dashboard display that allows you to sync your Bluetooth®-paired iPhone to the screen. Once successfully synced and paired, your vehicle and phone will be connected and you can access your phone’s features and apps from the road.

Whether you’re looking to access some of your music apps or your in-phone media library, your GPS apps, your contacts, or even your texts, you’ll be able to select those while in transit to your location. You can even utilize Siri® and give your phone voice commands, which will then bring your phone’s home screen to the dashboard display—allowing you to select the features.

Honda Apple CarPlay® Setup How to Connect Your Phone to Your Car with Apple CarPlay®

Having direct access to your phone from your vehicle’s touchscreen can be very beneficial for when you’re trying to change the music, respond to texts, conduct phone calls, and more. However, you’ll need to know how to set up Apple CarPlay® in your Honda so you can start benefitting from it.

First, you’ll need to connect your iPhone to the Honda’s USB port. Your phone will emit a sound, letting you know that it’s fully connected (it’s the sound when you plug your phone in to charge). Once it’s connected, you’ll see the Apple CarPlay® icon appear on your phone and on the Honda screen.

Once you see the icon on your dashboard display, simply tap it and you’ll see your iPhone menu appear on your Honda screen. After the connection is established, you’ll be fully synced to your Honda screen.

Honda Apple CarPlay® Setup Accessing Your Features

When you’ve successfully paired your phone with your vehicle, you’ll see a menu reminiscent of your phone’s menu. This menu is two pages, and like your iPhone, you’ll need to swipe to get to the next page. The Apple CarPlay® menu in your Honda shows you:

  • Phone- lets you sift through contacts or recent calls
  • Music- your music library
  • Maps- Apple maps
  • Messages- all of your recent text messages
  • Now Playing- the current media you have playing
  • Honda- brings back your Honda dashboard display menu

As well as media apps and options like:

  • Podcasts
  • Audiobooks
