How to Connect to Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™

Apple CarPlay in a 2021 Honda Accord


When you purchase a new Honda, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ are included. Because of this, many car shoppers often ask how to connect Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ to their new vehicle. The Morrie's West Bend Honda service center created an easy-to-follow guide showing you how to connect your smartphone to your Honda vehicle. Feel free to contact our dealership near Milwaukee if you get stuck along the way.

How to Connect to Apple CarPlay®

Before starting, you’ll need to have an iPhone 5 or later version and be sure that your area supports CarPlay®. Then, on your iPhone, go to Settings > Siri & Search > Turn Siri on.

Follow the steps below to connect your Honda to Apple CarPlay®:

  1. Plug your phone into the CarPlay USB port, which should be labeled with the CarPlay logo.
  2. If your car supports a wireless Bluetooth® connection, go to Settings > General > CarPlay > Available Cars and select your car.
  3. Start your car and let it run.
  4. Ask Siri what’s needed by either pressing and holding the Voice Control button on your steering wheel or touching and holding the CarPlay Home button on your touchscreen until Siri appears.

How to Connect to Android Auto™

Your smartphone requires Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or a more recent version. However, we’ve found that Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) works best. Below are the steps to connecting to Android Auto™:

  1. Turn on Android Auto in your car’s settings.
  2. Download the Android Auto™ app from Google Play. When you plug your smartphone into your car with the compatible USB cable, you will receive a prompt to download the app.
  3. Unlock your phone’s screen.
  4. Review the Safety Information and Android Auto™ permissions.
  5. Turn on notifications for Android Auto™.
  6. On your vehicle’s display, select Android Auto™.
