How to Connect to Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™

2022 Honda Odyssey Front Interior

One of the most popular features offered in new Honda vehicles is Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. Being able to have hands-free access to all of the apps on your smartphone can make your Madison driving experience more fun and convenient. Wondering how to connect Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ to your Honda? In this guide from Patty Peck Honda we’ll show you how easy it is to connect your smartphone to your Honda.

How to Connect to Apple CarPlay®

It is recommended that you have an iPhone 5 or later version, and that you are in an area that supports CarPlay®. Then, on your iPhone, go to Settings > Siri & Search, and turn Siri on. Next, 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 will need Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or a more recent version. Our team has found that Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) works best. The following steps will show you how 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™.
