    Honda's Handsfree Link website and Iphone 5

    Find it interesting the iphone 5 is NOT compatible with 2012/13 CRV's but is compatible with 2013 Accords.

    Honda's reason: "Due to the phone software, incoming calls will not be received at random occurrences on the Hands-Free system. We have communicated these issues to the device manufacturer. Please check back for updates."

    Honda, if you are listening, if you can get it to work on the Accord why not the CRV?

    Frustrated and ready to get a different car, it's the little things that can push you over the edge. The bluetooth hands free link hasn't worked reliably since day one.

    I am able to receive calls on my iPhone 5 in my 2012 crv by changing a setting on the phone. Go to hondasuv.com to see a thread about it.

    Go to settings, general, accessibility, physical & motor, incoming calls. Select headset.

    The accord uses a totally different system than the CR-V right!? The 2013 Civic uses the Very same system as the 12-13 CR-V so plenty of people are going to be pissed off for that.

    So I emailed Honda, this was their response citing software issues with the iPhone not Honda hardware. Now, how can iOS6 be that much different on the 5 vs any older generation iPhone?

    "Thank you for contacting us in regards to your HandsFreeLink system.

    The HandsFreeLink system in the 2013 Accord is very different than the system in the 2012/2013 CR-V. While the features are similar, the hardware of the systems are different, and the software of the iPhone 5 is just not compatible with the CR-V. There are no updates for the CR-V that will resolve this issue. The change needs to be made to the phone and would come from Apple. We apologize for any inconvenience.

    If you have any additional questions or comments, please feel free to contact us at 888-528-7876. We are available Mon-Fri from 7:00am-8:00pm CT."

    vanz - Works for me on a 2013 CR-V no NAVI. Thanks for the tip!
    Sold my CR-V and I don't come around here anymore.

    Honestly, I think this is ar least partially BS I tried this setting, exactly as described, verified twice... what happened to me was it worked the FIRST time I tested an incoming call, but then never again.
