These apps include the HondaLink Navigation App, the HondaLink Aha App (entertainment), the HondaLink App (vehicle information) and now the iHeartRadio App for Auto (US Only).

The apps can work either in standalone mode (for use when not driving) or when connected to Honda vehicles equipped with the HondaLink-ready technology.

NOTE: Use of HondaLink apps in the vehicle requires an HDMI cable connector, Apple lightning adapter, and Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® connection. See hondanavi.com or handsfreelink.com for more information or to order the HondaLink iOS Cable Kit ($99).

Some services require use of GPS for location-based content. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Honda should stick to cars. This series of apps are just pure pointless and redundant to each other. And these are free. I'd hate to spend $60 on the navigation to be disappointed.

This series of Honda apps are completely and totally unusable, pointless, and shows the disconnect of real world.

Yes their vehicles and innovation are superior and worth it IMO. Something went wrong with the radio designers though. If I have to have three Honda apps open just to show my iPhone screen on a big screen, spend $60 on accessories to make this happen and the process is very regimented, and there’s nothing great about it, then I’m good. But I bet if I paid $60 for the navigation app that would work, right? I doubt it. I hear it is dumber than the first generation Garmons from 15 years ago.

All of the new radios need to have a firmware update, they need to incorporate CarPlay, and Honda needs to work on it’s contracts with Apple. Otherwise I’m using my phone for navigation.

Pointless App, nothing to see here, move along!


All this app does is find all your Honda apps and puts them in one central location. No need to download this app. It’s easier to put all your apps in one folder on your iPhone screen. It doesn’t offer any additional functionality. If you are looking at the preview photos you already seen what this app has to offer, absolutely nothing! Don’t waste your time, data, and storage space on your iPhone. Tried it with my 2017 Honda Ridgeline Black Edition. Can’t rate it 0 stars because Apple will not allow it.

Piece of crap!!! I want Apple CarPlay on my '17 Fit!!!!


1. Can't use my iPhone when this thing is connected.

2. It takes a minimum of 30 seconds for the head unit and phone to connect.

3. I have to "allow" my phone to connect to the system EVERY TIME I hook it up to my car!!!

4. When it reconnects, I have to navigate through several menus to get back to the Aha podcast I'm listening to.

I don't understand why Honda doesn't just switch everything to CarPlay. I just bought a 2017 Fit and am really bummed about the horrible app experience.
