Could it be!? Is Honda ready to support Apple Car Play and/or Android Auto!? Is that why they've been delaying!? This would be the most delightful surprise ever. Please say it's so.

One more hint that is on the HR-V Facebook page, linked from the Honda Website as well...
"Your camera phone will soon become a thing of the past. Stay tuned for a special announcement from Honda tomorrow."

Just saw this on the official Facebook page....What could SLF stand for? Maybe you can post pictures your rear view camera takes online? April fools joke???

I don't like the looks of this. As a middle-aged fart that refuses to tweet or book face, the last thing I want in my car is more invasive connected technology to convince me I have a "social" life.

Please, please don't tell me it's a selfie cam in the dash.

If it's some dumb play on a selfie for April fools I'll be upset, plus they'd be a day early. Their marketing should have better things to do with their time, as in putting out real hrv info, if all this is a joke
it looks like last year they did a DIY fit April fools joke.

There was speculation on the forum about all of the different buttons / sensors on the rear view mirror in the cabin. Maybe one of the black areas is a little camera?

Wouldn't it be nice if someone finally had an OEM dash cam option ?

There is a thread on the vote site:

I think the Twitter announcement might hold a clue. It says it will change your "Social Life Forever". Perhaps the SL is "Social Life" perhaps "Social Life Friendly"?? Not sure what image is next to the SLF.
I hope Honda isn't amping up the in car infotainment too much as distracted driving is an increasing problem.

I would like to opt out of this package, I don't care about something like this. And like you said, people don't need any more distractions.

Exactly my thoughts, specially since the hardware is there, and the dash is basically a tablet PC, just a matter of having enough microprocessor power to be able to record video and do other stuff at the same time

HR-V SLF= Selfie Cam...must be April Fools

http://http://automobiles.honda.com/hrvselfie/

SLF stands for selfie, meaning an HR-V Selfie edition with 10 cameras throughout the vehicle. There is an accompanying video on the site. As a 20 something woman, the video is particularly......degrading

Really hoping this is an April Fools joke, even if it's a bad one.
