HondaLink app provides partial integration of car and iPhone

Jan 28 2014, 3:39am CST | by

Before Apple could finalize its 'iOS in the Car' Initiative, Honda came up with a partial integration of iPhone and Honda cars through its app HondaLink

Honda announced in December that it is developing a new HondaLink functionality and application which will allow the integration of iOS devices and the new 2014 Honda Civic and upcoming Honda 2015 Fit.

The HondaLink for iOS comes in four App Store applications:

  1. A Connect app, which will be the hub for providing information on weather, location and Honda service from the iPhone to the car;
  2.  An Aha application, which will be an interface to the music streaming;
  3. A Launcher application, which will allow interface between HondaLink and approved third-party apps; and 
  4. A $59.99 Navigation application, which will provide GPS navigation that will be powered by Nokia's HERE.

Users will be able to connect their Apple devices to the HondaLink through an initial setup that will require Apple's Lightning AV Digital Adapter, Lightning-to-USB cables and HDMI on the dash. The pairing process will be required for the first connection, but all subsequent connections will be simply plug-and-play.

HondaLink very much looks like an ordinary in-dash navigation and music system, but it runs through the iPhone, and is integrating services such as Pandora, Aha and iTunes with navigation using GPS and phone services.

The system, which supports Siri Eyes Free functionality, allows drivers to control their devices without having to take their eyes from the road.

There are many benefits to running everything through iPhone, especially the navigation. The app costs $59.99, but Honda will be able to offer free updates of the apps through Apple’s App Store.
