Apple CarPlay

It’s easy to learn how to connect to Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™, so the team at Straub Honda wants to show you how. The majority of vehicles in the new Honda lineup are available with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, so it’s not surprising we’ve received so many inquiries from Wheeling-area drivers who are learning how to use these great features. Keep reading to learn more.

How to Connect to Apple CarPlay®

In order to start, you need to make sure that you have an iPhone 5 or later version. You also need to be in an area that supports CarPlay. One you have those two things set, turn on your iPhone, go to Settings, look for Siri & Search, and turn Siri on. Once you have Siri own, 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 car supports a wireless Bluetooth® connection, go to Settings > General > CarPlay > Available Cars and select your car.
  3. Start your car 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 an Android phone that is running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or a more recent version. What we’ve found is that Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) works best. Once you’re set, follow these steps 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™.
  6. On your vehicle’s display, select Android Auto™.
