2016 dosen't have HDMI socket she can connect the her phone with bluetooth and usb cable
It's worse than that. With a simple exploit it's possible to fully mirror a phone onto the indash screen on a 2015 through the HDMI.The Hondalink iOS cable is used to display the nav part, but not compatible with 2016 Civic...only 2014 - 2015:
Why compatible with previous Civics, but not the 2016?...stranger than fiction.
And yet, not compatible with current model...hmmm. Wife has new '16 Pilot, and it's also incompatible...whiskey tango foxtrot?It's worse than that. With a simple exploit it's possible to fully mirror a phone onto the indash screen on a 2015 through the HDMI.
Quality is key, some people cheap out and buy $1 cords but spending the $10 for something from Best Buy is your best bet, better than dealing with issues. Even better if it's a tangle free cord.Yea my girlfriend uses the car play and she just hooks it into the usb that is under the console, not the one under the cup holder. And it works every time! Just make sure you have a quality usb
Streaming audio and phone will work on bluetooth alone, but to run the actual CarPlay app and move all the data for maps and w/e other apps you are running they require the use of a USB cable. It is the same for AndroidAuto.Salesman probably meant a USB cord.
I thought Apple Car play would be wireless through bluetooth, but it's not you must have a USB cord to connect the phone to the car.
At least as far as I could tell the 24 hours I test drove one.
Wow..Very cool...and very generous Dad.I'm buying my daughter an EX-T for her birthday and pick it up in a few weeks. !
you can not use a HDMI cable in our cars with modifying the system. The lightning cable is fineI use my iPhone cable with no issues for CarPlay.What are the benefits of a HDMI cable.
