Requires registration with HondaLink. Requires HDMI cable connector, Apple lightning adapter, and Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® connection. See handsfreelink.honda.com for more details (US only).

Ratings and Reviews
Still bad. I’m not asking for the world, merely for this GPS software to actually function reliably.
My review disappeared. It’s still just as bad as it was before. Still randomly fails to connect to the server (across LTE, WiFi at many locations, and now two separate carriers). This means the application, which relies on that server connection, fails to perform even the most basic of tasks, such as routing and navigation. It serves solely as a limited, non-interactive map. If I wanted that, I’d use my printed maps.
The only thing I really want out of my car is reliability. It would be nice if the navigation system would do the same. I rarely use GPS, and the occasions when I need it, I really need it. So far, the poor performance of this application has completely destroyed my trust in it (and to some extent, the Honda Motor Corporation). I instead use Apple Maps and deal with voice commands. At least that has reliably worked.
Don’t waste your money if you want to be able to listen to music and navigate simultaneously.
App connects fine sometimes. But you loose music control. If you want to change a song you have to exit the app change your song on your phone switch back to the app on your phone, press the honda link icon on your car screen and wait a loading screen of about 30 seconds to be able to continue using the navigation feature. This completely defeats the purpose of me wanting to be able to have navigation on the car screen so I don't have to use my phone. UI could improve greatly. Clock stamp completely covers up where the street and direction that is coming up next is displayed.

I live and breathe this app with being on the road with my job. The maps and traffic are spot on and it has the lane assist and auto zoom in so you don't miss a turn or exit lane. This app is very good because it is more like a car navigation. I feel safer using this then looking down at phone and fiddling with my iPhone. Only complaint I have is that when I receive a call there should be a button to go back to navigation while on the call. Going through 4 screens to get back to navi is a pain. Otherwise I would give it 4.5 stars
