Red face HR-V with Apple's Carplay (2016 and 2017 Models do not support CarPlay)

Any news if we will get Carplay in HR-V? Bought an EX Trim last May 28 and I love it.

The only news we've gotten is from Honda's Twitter account, which essentially says it's not coming to any existing vehicle, only to-be-released 2016s. (And even tho the HR-V is a 2016, it's still not included) It's ridiculous in my mind given the testing they did with the 2015 CR-V.

As to why? No real answer. Honda is switching to a new OS this year. So maybe the suits in Honda don't want to support the existing systems. Either way, it's frustrating.

Are current HRV owners able to update to Apple CarPlay once it's ready?

I imagine there may be additional hardware requirements for cars using CarPlay. Perhaps the hardware isn't up to spec? Maybe a capacitive multi-touch screen is required, I don't think this feature is on our current one.

Honda is saying it won't be compatible. But note that the testing they did with the 2015 CR-V would have the same HondaLink as ours. I think they are multitouch, as you can pinch/zoom with the HondaLink navi app. And even Apple's CarPlay page shows a Honda interface!

It would be great if 2016 HR-Vs could be retrofitted but that's unlikely.

I'm getting less and less patient with their Twitter account dismissing people in regards to CarPlay. (It happens at least a few times a day) But I'm not sure how to escalate it, or at least get a decent explanation. I'm wondering if there will be any CarPlay news out of WWDC next week.

I came across a thread on Apple's forum that included a 2015 CRV owner that was contacted by Honda as part of a test program for CarPlay. They mentioned they'd receive a USB stick with the firmware update.

That being said, I've also read current 2015 Honda owners were told by Honda that they would not be able to upgrade/update.

It would be great (and much appreciated) if any Honda reps here on forum could clarify if current HRV models will be eligible for the update.

And providing that HR-V is a 2016 model. It should be qualified for the firmware update.
