Honda Introduces 2016 Civic With CarPlay and Android Auto Support

Honda on Wednesday at YouTube Space LA introduced the redesigned 2016 Civic with CarPlay and Android Auto support. The tenth-generation sedan will be the second Honda vehicle to support CarPlay alongside the 2016 Accord as the Japanese car maker continues its 2016 vehicle rollout.

Apple has listed Honda as a CarPlay partner on its website for quite some time, but the car maker waited until its 2016 lineup to introduce the iPhone-based dashboard system. GM is also supporting CarPlay and Android Auto in 2016 across its Chevrolet, Cadillac, Corvette, Buick and GMC vehicle brands.

CarPlay connects to iPhone and provides hands-free or eyes-free access to Maps, Phone, Messages, Music, Podcasts and third-party apps such as Spotify, Rdio, iHeartRadio, CBS Radio and MLB At Bat. The in-dash software uses Siri and also interfaces with your vehicle's knobs, dials and buttons.

The Apple Maps should be a huge upgrade from the Honda Maps GPS.

Are you serious?
Yes, I have had the Honda maps direct me to some random gas station that was 2,000 miles away when I was looking for the nearest gas station. The interface is just terrible. Maybe it was improved recently and I am not aware of those improvements.
