What are some of the favourite features on Your New Crv.
I have a drop foot in the right foot so the safty features are what i love..i just picked it up today. Probably only know some of the features.....i am thinking about using the walk away locks (any draw back to using this?......) if i pay for the honda link app and then get a new phone will i have to buy it again (sorry to go off topic...just wonderingautomatic breaking and brake hold....as well as all of the safty features. i had thought the crv ex came with the ability to roll windows down with key fob but i guess not(2017 EX)
I downloaded the Honda Link app to my. it was free. I haven't tried it yet, as I am leery of having a phone interruption while I am driving.if i pay for the honda link app and then get a new phone will i have to buy it again (sorry to go off topic...just wondering
You can open the windows and moonroof, see page 165 of the manual. It works on my EX.automatic breaking and brake hold....as well as all of the safty features. i had thought the crv ex came with the ability to roll windows down with key fob but i guess not(2017 EX)
well this is coolYou can open the windows and moonroof, see page 165 of the manual. It works on my EX.
Press the unlock button, and then within 10 seconds, press it again and keep it pressed. If the windows and moonroof* or Panoramic Roof*1 stop midway, repeat the procedure.
Thank you! I'll try it out tomorrow, fingers crossed. ACC has made driving to work so much better, most of my drive is highway so I set it and keep one hand on the wheel and foot ready and relax. I'm loving this car, so glad I waited and didn't buy the '16 ...I came so close, it was between that or the civic hatch.bsirk3,
You don't have to do anything different then the normal enabling of the ACC to use it in slow speed traffic. For your comfort and safety, I would recommend that when traffic slows or comes to a stop, place your foot over the brake pedal (hovering and ready to go, but don't press the pedal as it will disable the ACC) and be ready to take over if you're not comfortable with what the system is doing. As long as there's already a detected vehicle in front of you that you are following, you'll first see (if you have the fuel economy screen on in the dash) the car let up on the gas, then you'll eventually feel the braking start. The only situation that I'm not comfortable with the system is when there is no vehicle detected in front of you and you come up behind a stopped vehicle. It doesn't start braking soon enough for me, so I've never let it go completely to see what would happen. At any rate, if you do this a few times, you'll find that the system works well when following other vehicles and you'll get comfortable with it soon enough. Just remember to always be prepared to take control just in case it can't handle the situation.
The only drawback to using the walkaway locking feature that I've encountered is that you'll get used to it and will develop a tendency to just walk away from any other vehicles that you may have. They, of course, don't auto-lock this way, so you're vulnerable. Ha, ha! Such problems we have.
As far as your phone goes, when you purchase apps, they are always tied to your purchase account and not your phone. That way you can always reload your apps to whatever phone that you are using. This is nice and convenient, but it does lock you into a particular ecosystem once you've purchased a number of apps. As others have already said, the HondaLink app is free and other than allowing you to make service appointments from your phone, there's not a lot of functionality to it.
