This was an interesting tweet from Honda, when I did a search for any CarPlay hints. Since the HR-V is a 2016, I'm hoping it's included:

https://twitter.com/Honda/status/601434264371109888

Who knows what "soon" is, but since CarPlay only requires the USB/lightning cable, it might be worth holding off any HondaLink stuff unless there's something really necessary. I use the little space near the USB/HDMI ports to store my sunglasses, and I'd imagine adding the HDMI cable and other stuff would get rather messy..

Good point. My curiosity can wait.

I watched the video -

no wonder Apple is trying to simplify things with Car Play.

"Select"....probably means NOT ALREADY RELEASED...as in not the HRV. What the heck else could "select 2016 models" mean???

Interesting find... thanks galvanization for posting!

He also says "will not be backwards compatible on Honda models", which also could mean no retrofit to delivered HRVs. On the other hand, if the original question was about an older car, he could just mean that.

I don't have a twitter account, and don't see the tweet he was responding to... anyone else?

I can always hope that it's available on the HR-V by the time it's released here in July...

I think it would be ridiculous to not have it on the HR-V, especially since they said (and now apparently abandoned) it on the 2014, and beta tested it on the 2015 CR-V.

"Select" might just mean you need the 7" touchscreen, so not the LX. I hope!

"select 2016 models"


How much more clear can this be?
If it is not ALREADY on a 2016 model, it will not be...already released 2016 models will not have it. Pretty simple. It will not be on ANY 2016 HRV (that's a Honda model) because it is not already on it. A new HRV manufactured in Mexico next month will not have it.

I'm just trying to be optimistic, as it could be a firmware update, akin to how they beta tested on the 2015s. At the same time you could be right, the current gen of HondaLink may not be up to the task, and revamped for the other 2016s.

I remember the 'firmware update' on the Fit that they promised by...Nov 2014 I think...that became vaporware, Honda gave up on that and ended up pulling it from their site. They have a bad recent track record so if they even suggested it as a possibility on this upcoming announcement....BUYER BE (vapor)WARE!!

You are most likely right; I suspect it'll appear on the Pilot and possibly the Civic first. But the term "select 2016 models" is completely ambiguous; to me the only clear implication is that it won't appear on every model across the board.

I don't really expect it to be available on the HR-V, but I don't agree that the wording of this tweet completely eliminates that possibility. And it is only a single tweet, after all.
