Honda today unveiled its new HondaLink connectivity and infotainment system that will debut this fall on the 2013 Accord sedan. The HondaLink system is the first to use Aha by Harman, which will enable Honda to connect drivers to thousands of cloud-based news, information and media feeds.
“HondaLink will enable customers to put away their phone and still stay connected to the people, music and media they love,” said Vicki Poponi, assistant vice president of product planning for American Honda. “By creating an intuitive and customizable user interface, HondaLink allows drivers to access digital content as easily as choosing a radio station.”
Of course, those users with smartphones will have even a better experience. Aha also allows HondaLink users to listen to Facebook and Twitter audio newsfeeds, podcasts from NPR, location-based personalized restaurant listings from Yelp!, and access internet music services such as Slacker and Pandora.
The HondaLink system also includes HondaLink EV, which will be available on the Fit EV and the Accord Plug-in Hybrid sedan.
