The App is compatible with the iPhone 5/5S/5C with iOS 7.x/iOS 8.x/iOS 9.x, the iPhone 6/6+ with iOS 8.x/iOS 9.x/iOS 10.x, the iPhone 6S/6S+ with iOS 9.x/10.x, and iPhone 7/7+ with iOS 10.x. Not compatible with iPhone 4/4S or earlier.
The HondaLink® Launcher App enables a variety of Apple iPhone apps to be played through the Display Audio system of HondaLink equipped vehicles. The app also operates as a convenient link to download compatible apps onto your iPhone.
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.
What's New in Version 1.5
Latest Honda Link bug fix
Your last revision was a step backwards. I actually love the Navigation app. But the latest bug fix and enhancements looks like a step backwards. You need to do some ios10 upgrades to the app. What are the enhancements. Maybe if I knew what they were I'd have more success loading the Navi app.
Disappointment is an understatement
I find it hard to believe that this app is completely useless. How can Honda attach their name to something like this? I too have a 2016 Honda Pilot EXL. No car play or ability to have apps on the "infotainment" unit. Yet there are vehicles half the price that are able to do so? Mind boggling. In a way, Honda has cheated us with "apps" like this. Empty promises. Zero stars.
Complete let down!
This app is trash. How is the most expensive vehicle that Honda has, which is also their flagship not supported? I paid over $40k for a brand new Hond Pilot SUV, which just went through a complete redesign and it's not supported, yet a $17k Honda Civic is supported? Makes no sense. They need to either put CarPlay in the 16-17 Pilot or provide support for this app.
