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.
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.
