Digital Technologies in Your Honda – Everything You Need to Know

It’s not simply the superior driving experience that keeps Honda customers coming back, it’s the way that the experience is extended to encompass everything a driver needs while on the road.

Driving for many of us is much more than a simple trip from A to B. There are so many things to keep track of as we go about our daily tasks – driving to work; dropping the kids to school; running errands – that Honda has realised the necessity of integrating technologies into their cars that can allow you to effectively organise and navigate in a way that is both efficient and safe for drivers and passengers.

The team at Collins Honda is able to give you the lowdown on these exciting features.

Bluetooth Wireless

New Honda cars feature HandsFreeLink, a system that uses Bluetooth technology to transfer an incoming call from your phone to the display in your car and allows you to use voice command to dial numbers – meaning you can receive, make and conduct calls without taking your concentration off the road. This is essential and safe technology for the busy driver.

Android Technologies

Probably the most exciting tech development for Honda in recent years has been the incorporation of Android Auto. Users of Google’s Android operating system will be familiar with the many benefits it brings to their phones. Honda shares the enthusiasm for Android’s usefulness in integrating phone and internet communications technology to create a fully integrated driving experience – allowing you to multi-task while also staying safer on the roads.

Android Auto works by extending Android technology into the car itself. The essential apps can be connected to the car’s display and are optimised for your car’s controls. The design motivation behind Android Auto is to strip the apps to the essentials – the kind of thing you need when driving. All you need to do is plug your Android phone into the USB port to set up your phone-to-car connectivity.

One crucial example is Google Maps. The Google Maps app is streamlined for use on your Honda’s screen with easy-to-use touch targets and a simplified interface.

Android Auto uses conversational voice recognition, mounted on the steering wheel, adjusted to the volume, tone and style of commands its driver makes when on the road – things like setting a reminder to pick up milk on the way home.

This voice recognition technology makes it easy to send and receive messages while never taking your eyes off the road. Combined with the superior Google Maps technology, you know you’re in safe hands with Honda.
