2020 Honda Accord EX-L | Apple CarPlay
The 2020 Honda Accord supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, two systems that allow you to use and manage basic phone functions, hands-free, through the infotainment display in the vehicle. To launch Apple CarPlay, simply connect your phone via a USB cable and allow the vehicle access to the phone.
Apple CarPlay can perform many of the same functions as an iPhone, such as turn-by-turn directions, make calls, send and receive text messages, and play music, podcasts or audiobooks.
Apple CarPlay can be controlled and accessed through the vehicles touchscreen or via the buttons on the steering wheel. Siri Voice Control with Apple CarPlay is designed specifically for driving scenarios for calling, texting, and accessing other apps.
Siri can read, reply, and send text messages for you so that you never have to pick up your phone. You can tell Siri who you want to text and what the text will say, and she will compose and send the message for you. You can also tell her where you want to go and a route will be calculated with no need to use your phone at all.
You can also access your music library and other supported apps through Apple CarPlay like Spotify, Audible, MLB At Bat, and Waze.
Apple CarPlay now features an all new dashboard that helps you with music, directions, Siri suggestions, and maps that reveal more of what’s around you. The newest update for Apple Carplay can display important information from multiple apps on one screen. For example, the navigation map will stay on the left side of the screen, while the music app, and the date and time for an upcoming event are displayed on the right.
