Honda has just rolled out an enticing offer for owners of select Accord models from 2018 to 2022: the option to integrate wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™ functionalities through a dealer-installed software upgrade. This exciting initiative, announced recently, extends to approximately 631,000 Accord vehicles in the United States and forms part of Honda’s larger sustainability drive aimed at maximizing the lifetime value of their vehicles by introducing upgrades and novel digital services.

Owners of 2018-2022 Accord trims that were originally equipped with wired-only Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™ can now benefit from seamless wireless connectivity, granting integrated access to various smartphone apps, music, navigation, and voice assistants. Jay Joseph, Vice President of the Sustainability & Business Development Division at American Honda Motor Co., Inc., highlighted the significance of this software update, stating that it allows customers to utilize existing hardware in their Honda vehicles for an enhanced connectivity experience.

For those interested in availing themselves of this feature, the wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™ upgrade can be conveniently installed at any authorized Honda dealer for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $112, plus a dealer labor charge. Notably, this upgrade comes at no extra cost for qualifying Accord models sold as Honda Certified Pre-Owned vehicles, thereby adding further value to the certified program.

Honda’s commitment to enhancing the ownership experience aligns with its broader goal of achieving carbon neutrality for all products and corporate activities by 2050. By offering upgrades like wireless integration for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™, the company not only meets the evolving needs of its customers but also contributes to its sustainability objectives. This initiative underscores Honda’s dedication to innovation, customer satisfaction, and environmental responsibility, marking a significant step towards a greener, more connected future.
