2012 Honda CR-V – How To Pair Your Bluetooth [VIDEO]

August 15th, 2012 by

See how easy it is to pair your phone to the 2012 Honda CR-V. All CR-V’s are now standard with Bluetooth HandsfreeLink wireless technology allowing the driver to keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. Honda has made the pairing process easy with voice guidance, taking you quickly through the process. Other HandsFreeLink improvements on non Navi models for the 2012 Honda CR-V include:

  • Auto import of phonebook and call history
  • A dedicated phone button on the audio control panel
  • Six speed dials linked to radio pre-set keys

We asked Steve Hawkins, a Honda Council of Sales Leader to demonstrate how to pair a smart phone to the All New 2012 Honda CR-V.


Bluetooth Audio On The CR-V

Bluetooth audio allows you to play music through the vehicle’s audio system using a Bluetooth phone that supports the necessary profiles. Paired phones such as the iPhone, Galaxy or many other smart phones with a compatible music player, can stream music files wirelessly through the CR-V’s audio system.

It will appear as an auxiliary choice, indicated by a big bluetooth logo among the sources available in the iMid audio display, and can be selected with the source button.

For safety reasons HandsfreeLink has some restrictions on what can be done manually while the CR-V is moving. Those operations will be shaded in the iMid display encouraging drivers to either stop their vehicles or use voice recognition when performing some handsfree link functions.
