What is Apple CarPlay?®

Apple CarPlay® is the smarter and safer way to use your iPhone while you drive in Tampa. Apple CarPlay® for Honda gives you access to your favorite iPhone apps in your vehicle’s built-in display. This allows you to stream music, calls, texts, navigation, and much more without taking your eyes off the road. Apple CarPlay® for Honda uses Siri Voice Control, enabling you to simply ask for what you want while you drive, allowing you to say focused on your commute while having access to your favorite iPhone features. Apple CarPlay® also works with your Honda touchscreen, knobs, and buttons. Learn how to install Apple CarPlay® on your Honda below.

Connecting your iPhone 5 (or a newer model) to your Honda vehicle is simple! Follow the steps below, and soon you’ll be driving through Land O' Lakes listening to your favorite music albums. 

  1. Turn on your vehicle and place it in Park.
  2. Go to your Honda infotainment Settings and select Apple CarPlay®
  3. Turn on Siri in your iPhone by going to Settings > General > Siri 
  4. Connect your phone to your vehicle with a USB cable.

Troubleshoot Apple CarPlay® in Your Honda

As with most technology, connecting your iPhone to your Honda vehicle may result in complications the first – or even second – time. If you’re having trouble connecting your iPhone to your Honda, using the steps below to troubleshoot the issue:

  • Make sure Siri is turned on and enabled. You can check this by going to iPhone Settings and then Siri. 
  • Ensure your USB cable is connected properly to your Honda and your iPhone.
  • Try a different cable. You should start with the Apple Lightning to USB cable if possible, but if you find it doesn’t work, you can try a different USB cable, or you may need to purchase a new cable. 
  • Restart your iPhone and your Honda vehicle while keeping your iPhone connected via USB cable. This should reset Apple CarPlay® for you, and it should display the Apple CarPlay® logo on the screen. 
  • Connect your iPhone to a different USB port in your vehicle. Make sure you’re using a USB port that is for data transfer, not just for device charging. 
  • Ensure your iPhone and Honda infotainment system are updated to their latest versions. 
  • Make sure your vehicle is running, and not just in the “Accessory” position on your starter. 
  • Re-read the instructions to see if there is a step you missed.
