    Is Apple car play possible in a 2015 touring. Is there a software update that will upgrade it to accept car play? Or does the head unit need to be changed?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Not used to having a car without a CD player (I'm just old fashioned). But my kids just suggested I put my music on a flash drive and plug it into the USB port in my new 2019 CR-V. I have a Mac Desktop computer and a flash drive. Can someone help me with the steps I need to do to get the...
  4. USB won't play all of the titles

    Mobile Electronics
    I have a 2015 EX and I am struggling a bit with the music I have on a USB stick. The music is in mP3. I do have the music grouped in six folders but I can't get all of the titles to play in each folder. There are about 6-8 titles per folder. Plug the USB stick in the computer and no problems...

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hi... I'm having this issue. While playing mp3's in any specific folder, without having issues, with sound, ect, I will shut the engine off, and come back a few hours later. For , reasons that I do not understand, the player, will always come back to the first song in the first folder, even...
  6. Wireless Car Play Dream

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I own a 2017 CR-V and I have this dream that one day Honda will do a firmware update and magically change the Car Play to support wireless Car Play (which Apple officially supports). Or even if it will cost me money to physically change the innards of the player, I’d do it in an instant. Is this...

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I just noticed that the front hood slightly moves when locked- meaning you can shake it- is that normal?
  8. Some MP3 files don't play

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    I have a 2007 CRV (UK) with satnav/touchscreen MP3 player. After loading the Transcend card with MP3 files, some songs play without a problem, but most do not. The ones that don't play appear on the screen for about 1 second, then it just skips to the next track. No error message from what I...
  9. automatically switch between wired car play and Bluetooth?

    Mobile Electronics
    Does the system automatically switch between wired car play and Bluetooth? For instance I want to plug it in for trips to charge while using maps, but if I just hop in the car without connecting the cable, will the Bluetooth still answer my phone?
  10. MP3s on Compact Flash Card won't play (no errors)

    Mobile Electronics
    Hello all, I have a weird issue that I'm hoping someone here has seen before. I drive a 2008 Honda CR-V EX-L. It has the stereo system with navigation built in and everything works pretty well. After I purchased the vehicle, I purchased a SanDisk Extreme 32GB CompactFlash card (since I can't...
  11. iPhone & iPod Touch - Bluetooth or Apple Car Play?

    Mobile Electronics
    I do have not have my CR-V yet. However I've been trying to read and learn as much as I can about it. I'm a little confused if I should set up my iPhone thru bluetooth or Apple Car Play. Does either give better results? I have most of my music on my iPod touch and I'm assuming I should just plug...
  12. 2017+ models - Can you play video files on the head unit direct from a usb stick?

    Mobile Electronics
    First time poster and soon to be 2018 CR-V Touring owner! Can you play videos directly from a USB stick or does it have to play through your phone via carplay/android play? What does the file navigation look like? Will the head unit display the USB stick folder structure and you simply tap...
  13. Infotainment - Apple Car Play

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    My 2017 CR-V Touring has a problem with Apple Carplay. Frequently it will drop the screen with a "Device Not Connected" message. Reconnecting the device sometimes works, but often I have to do a soft reset of the infotainment unit (Press and hold the volume dial). My dealer says there is no...

  15. Play PLAYLISTS!

    Dear Honda:
    I have a lot of playlists in the standard .m3u format on my USB drive. The Honda audio system doesn't recognize them. Please add that capability!! A simple audio voice command of 'play playlist ?????' would be great! Android audio apps play .m3u playlists, I don't see why Honda's system...
  16. Is it possible to install Car Play in a 2016 CR-V?

    Mobile Electronics
    As the title says... Is this possible? It's a 2016 EX CR-V (it has the "big screen"). I usually don't like playing with the stuff that comes "by default", but having Car Play would make it worth it. Thank you!
  17. Dumb Car Play Question

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Last night I was playing around with Car Play. When I went into the bluetooth settings, I noticed that it showed my phone as not connected, and said that a bluetooth connection was not an option when the phone was connected in Car Play. So here's the dumb question - presumably one can make an...
  18. Car Play Butting In / Taking Over

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I've got kind of the opposite problem that people have reported with Car Play dropping. In our CRV, if we're listening to Sirius, and then my wife plugs in her phone, say to just charge it, it automatically switches the music source to Car Play. If we switch back to Sirius, it will hold that...

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    So while visiting my daughter at her University city/town, I wanted to change out the light bulbs to a brighter, better lux bulb. I recently replaced the left headlight assembly and completely hate the spring wire piece that holds the bulb and composite plug in bulb system. The latch part had...

    Problems & Issues
    Dear All, My 2013 CRV (Gen 4) has a clunk coming from the driver's side rear wheel, but only when going over bumps. I've been trying to find this for a while and found that there's some axial play in this driveshaft. None of the other three have this issue. The shaft moves in it's outer CV...
