Bluetooth® is a technology that lets you connect two devices. In your vehicle, Bluetooth® is incorporated into your vehicle’s infotainment system, allowing you to connect your phone to the system. When your phone is paired with your Honda model’s Bluetooth®, it gives you a few helpful functions to utilize during your ride.

The Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® works through the vehicle’s sound system. You can stay connected and maintain friendships and relationships while on your daily commute. It certainly makes any traffic congestion more tolerable.

Bluetooth® can also be used for entertainment purposes. It allows you to stream audio from your smartphone or device into the vehicle’s sound system. You can choose audio from your phone’s media library from albums that you’ve bought or downloaded. You’ll even be able to stream audio from any music streaming apps that you have. Bluetooth® can even make long treks go by quicker with the ability to stream podcasts or even audio books through the sound system.

You’ll want to make sure that the vehicle is on, but in Park. Press the home button in the top left corner of your dashboard display screen. You’ll want to press the “Phone” icon, which is located on the left column.

You’ll be prompted in a new window with: “No phone is paired to the system. Would you like to add a phone now?” Select “Yes,” and make sure that you have your phone’s Bluetooth® set to discovery mode. Another window will pop up, urging you to make sure your Bluetooth® is ON. After hitting “Yes,” the name of your phone will pop up in a new window with “Add Bluetooth® Device” located at the top of the screen. Hit refresh if the phone hasn’t appeared on the screen.

If you can’t connect this week, simply use your phone to discover Bluetooth® devices on your phone. When you find HandsFreeLink®, it will give you a pairing code on your dashboard display. When you pair your phone, it will ask permission to share your contacts and media library with the car. This allows you to access your contacts right from the screen!
