  1. Hondalink App is junk

    Mobile Electronics
    I have never gotten this app to work consistently in my 2019 CR-V. Despite being connected to bluetooth and able to make calls, receive messages and play music, this stupid app says it needs a bluetooth connection. Do I really need to reboot my phone and vehicle system every single time I get in...
  2. HondaLink and Carplay - many annoyances

    Problems & Issues
    As a person who works in technology, I find it annoying when basic app functions are less than cooperative. Often I must press the touch display 4, 5, 6, or more times to get the radio or a map. If I connect my phone before starting the car, it is NEVER recognized - NO DEVICE CONNECTED. The...

  4. HondaLink won't finish setup

    Mobile Electronics
    I got a new CRV and can't get the HondaLink to finish setup. The diagnostic is on for it. The HondaLink button tells me to check the app. I go through the setup on the App and it goes back to main screen that says finish setup. Everything is setup normally.
  5. HondaLink App

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) 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...
  6. Music/Navigation 2015 CR-V

    Mobile Electronics
    Hi, New guy, to group and Honda. I have been trying to find out how to connect my Samsung S9+ to Honda Connect and use Waze or Google maps as my Navigation. I can't listen to music while Bluetooth is connected. I don't have Sirius XM and the dealer told me if I had an Aftermarket Head unit put...
  7. 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

  9. hondalink odometer disparity

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Never mind, I'm a dumbass. Please delete. The Hondalink app can be very slow to update information and I got confused. Has anyone else experienced that you have to repeatedly tap "Always enable" to run Hondalink? What's the point of "always enable" if you constantly have to click it?
  10. Hondalink with Android Auto - Help with APK file

    Mobile Electronics
    I have a 2018 EX-L and it has the display with Hondalink and Android Auto. I want to use the data port to upload a new live wallpaper (APK file). I see the icon to "Add" and Download, but the install button is grayed out. This system looks totally Android. So am I doing something wrong? I also...
  11. What's the advantage of using HondaLink?

    Dear Honda:
    It only displays information already available on the car screen (range, total mileage, oil life). It only works if my iPhone is connected via Bluetooth. When connected via Bluetooth (rather than USB cable), I can't use the CarPlay features (Maps, Podcasts, iMessages), can't charge the phone...
  12. Saved map on Hondalink app problem

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Could someone please help me with locating a map that I saved in the HondaLink app and sent to the Garmen nav system. I hear an alert beep but am unable to see a method to locate the map. Frequently the beep occurs while the backup camera screen is active. The only online information I can find...

    Mobile Electronics
    According to the Honda web site Hondalink on the 2018 cr-v ex should show more options or functions that just parking reminder but that is all that is available.
  14. Hondalink App Won’t Connect

    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...

    The old mobile app will connect but the new app (build Nov 2017) will not. The dealership has the same problem. Any answers?
  16. HondaLink, Suddenly, Can't Connect Anymore

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I am, suddenly, having a problem getting my phone (iPhone 6, iOS 11.2) to connect to HondaLink on the head unit of my 2017 EX-L. I noticed, yesterday, that the dashboard of the HondaLink app hadn't updated in, almost, a week (obviously, it was working fine up until then). Now, something wasn't...
  17. HondaLink Navigation NA

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I am interested in purchasing this app to be able to have navigation through the touch screen. I have several questions about this app but have not had much luck finding answers. Does Google make this app? When you purchase this app is only good for one cell phone? My wife and I both have...
  18. What is the point of HondaLink?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    We generally use Android Auto when in our CRV and I kind of remember being asked the first time I hooked it up if I wanted some sort of emergency notification in case of an accident, to which I replied yes. Is that a function of HondaLink? Whether or not the emergency notification is part of...
  19. How to bypass Hondalink entirely?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hi! Is there a way to have the audio system use Android Auto by default for all operations and skip Hondalink entirely? For instance, when a call comes in or when I make a outgoing call using voice commands, it's not Android Auto that's displayed but Hondalink interface. I know I can longpress...

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) 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...
