  1. Recommended OBD app

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hi, I’ve been using the free version of various obd scan apps. I’m looking for a “premium” alternative primarily to read for fault codes, dashboard display, and for hybrid battery data(I have no idea what apps can do this). I’ve used obdfusion, Torque lite and a few others. I’ve used the paid...
  2. HondaLink App

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I was enthusiastic about setting up the HondaLink app on my phone, then realized that most of the functions described weren't applicable to the CR-V. So now it's mostly useless. Parking location seems to be updated faithfully, but all the other functions are stuck on a date three weeks ago...

  5. Hondalink Navigation App

    Mobile Electronics
    I’ve been curious about this app as it’s quit costly and I see more negative than positive reviews. Is it controlled by the vehicle screen or do you have to use the iPhone? What about map updates, are they available and free? Looking for what folks have thought about this app. Thanks

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    I realize this is an odd request, but is anyone else having problems with the head unit having some kind of conflict with the RING doorbell app? I have a couple 2015 tourings, a Samsung S8+ (Android) based flagship phone, and the RING app (with a RING PRO device at home) The symptoms: If you...

  10. Android Auto car locator app?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I believe I understand that HondaLink is supposed to have some functionality that allows me to locate where the car is parked, but I've read that HondaLink is almost useless, and if I understand correctly there's a monthly fee (which I'm not interested in paying). But I would like to have the...

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    Several times I've spent quite a while googling this with no luck. Generally I tow with my RAV4 and use the Android Toque app to show transmission temperature. Moving 1,400 miles soon am towing a small UHaul with my wife's CRV too. Would love the peace of mind to see transmission temperature...

    Recalls, TSB's & Notices
    I have a 2017 CRV EX. I downloaded the Hondalink app to my Apple iPhone 6s Plus. I’ve connected my phone to the car via Bluetooth and that seems to work fine. After downloading the app to my phone, I entered my car information so my car is in the app. For about a month, the info about my car...

  17. Android phones with Pandora app in CRV problem

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    My 2017 CRV-L receives everything from Pandora via my Android phone. I've had two Android phones, an HTC and now a brand new Moto E4. Bluetooth works fine for the phone and, like I say, the entire song info screen plays from the phone's pandora to accessory and I see it on my CRV screen. BUT no...

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    Do any of you use this? I currently mount my phone in the car, and have voice prompt via Bluetooth through the speakers. This system works fine, but I was thinking it might be nice to have all this done in the in dash multi media display. 1.) It looks like the adapter assembly is just an...
