The update can be completed at any Honda dealership in the U.S. for a suggested price of $112, plus a labor fee, according to the announcement. Eligible customers can book a service appointment on their local Honda dealership's website.

Approximately 631,000 Accords with wired-only CarPlay are eligible for the upgrade, said Honda.

Now compare this to GM who’s getting rid of CarPlay. Just another reason to never buy a GM product.

What’s the advantage of a wireless CarPlay vs the wired one? Considering that maps, etc., use quite a bit of a battery power.
It is wireless and you have the choice of plugging your phone in or not. There are plenty of times when I am going on a short trip I would not plug my phone in out of convenience.

It also gives you the option of using wireless charger or high speed charger. Most built in usb ports are very slow
