Using Bluetooth on the 2015 7″ Display HondaLink System

Honda has incorporated many of their 2015 model lineup with touch screen interfaces that incorporate a huge amount of functionality especially due to the capabilities of bluetooth. Using bluetooth, you can both use your new Honda as a hands-free system for making and receiving calls as well stream any music or other audio directly to your car’s sound system. No need for messy cords or any specific proprietary equipment to be all around your center console when you can simply and wirelessly stream audio from your phone after some simple setup steps.

The video above shows the setup for bluetooth streaming in a Honda Fit with a 7″ display, this display is identical to the 7″ display in the Civic and CR-V as well, so the setup process is the exact same. Let’s go over how you can quickly and easily setup bluetooth connectivity for your Honda.
