Within the Honda lineup, drivers can find advanced tech that allows for smartphone integration. But whether you choose a Honda Accord or a different model, you may not know how to connect to Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. That’s why Middletown Honda has created this step-by-step guide on how to connect to Apple CarPlay® and how to connect to Apple CarPlay™ for Chester drivers!

How to Connect Apple CarPlay® to Your Honda

The first step is making sure you have the correct device (drivers will need to have an iPhone 5 or later version) and that you are in an area that supports CarPlay. After meeting those requirements, open your iPhone, go to Settings > Siri & Search, and turn Siri on. After that, you’ll want to follow these steps:

  1. Connect your phone into the CarPlay USB port. This port will be labeled with the CarPlay logo.
  2. If your car offers a wireless Bluetooth® connection, you can go to Settings > General > CarPlay > Available Cars and select your Honda vehicle.
  3. Start your car and keep it running for the final step.
  4. Lastly, you’ll need to 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. Once Siri appears, you’ve completed the process.

How to Connect Android Auto™ to Your Honda

To connect an Android phone, you’ll need a phone running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or a more recent version. In our experience, we’ve found that Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) works best. Here’s how to connect Android Auto™:

  1. Head to your vehicle’s settings and turn on Android Auto.
  2. Next, download the Android Auto™ app from Google Play. You’ll receive a prompt to download the app when you plug your smartphone into your car with the compatible USB cable.
  3. Unlock your phone’s screen.
  4. Look through the Android Auto™ permissions and Safety Information.
  5. Turn on notifications for Android Auto™.
  6. Select Android Auto™ on your vehicle’s display.
