How to Connect to Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™

Apple CarPlay in a 2021 Honda Accord

Models from the Honda Accord to the Honda CR-V are equipped with smartphone integration like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. If you drive a Honda model with this technology and can’t seem to get it to work, we at Honda World Westminster have a guide to help. With the help of our service team, you can learn how to connect to Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ with ease.

How to Connect to Apple CarPlay®

The first step is to make sure your iPhone is compatible with this technology. You’ll need to have the iPhone 5 or a later version. Also, make sure you’re in an area that supports CarPlay. Once you have this information figured out, on your iPhone, go to Settings > Siri & Search, and turn Siri on. Once you complete this, follow these instructions 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™

With Android Auto™ it’s a bit similar. Your smartphone will need to be running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or a more recent version. We’ve found that Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) works best. Follow these steps to learn how to connect Android Auto™ to your new Honda:

  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™.
