Brief First Impressions and Something That Goes "Bing!"

My first trip home in the 2016 Honda Pilot revealed a lot of potential, but I'm still learning the quirks of the revamped navigation and entertainment interface.

  • The first complaints are probably user error but it shouldn't require a review of the manual to connect your iPod. The "DING" warning is just stupid hand has to go. It would have been better to put a message on the screen then a constant icon at the top like a phone notification bar. And you "THINK" it doesn't know where you are going. Isn't it Android Auto and Apple Car Play compatible? Both of those systems track your movements and I know Android will try to predict where you're going and give you traffic information. My Samsung GS6 gives me weather and traffic to work every morning with the Google widget. And does the same thing to go back home in the afternoon. Creepy but very useful.

    Heck I remember when putting an FM converter in my Gremlin was considered a high-tech upgrade. Complexity for the sake of complexity can become a serious pain.

    The 2016 Pilot is not Andorid Auto/Apple CarPlay compatible. The only Honda models currently compatible are 2016 Civic and 2016 Accord EX trim and above. I hope the system makes its way into Pilot, HR-V and CR-V soon. Those three have HondaLink Next Generation, which is decent but somewhat lacking compared to CarPlay/Android Auto. I'm sure it's only a matter of time.
