Honda to Incorporate Apple Tech in new Model

Here at Schofield Honda, we know that the lives of Wichita drivers can be insanely busy sometimes. Trying to stay connected to family, friends and the office at all hours of the day can become stressful and even dangerous if you tend to make a lot of calls and text messages in the car. That is why we are excited to tell you about a new feature being added to select new Hondamodels meant to make your time behind the wheel safer.

Say hello to Siri.

Yes, we are talking about the same "intelligent" personal assistant that inhabits your iPhone. Honda has decided to integrate Siri into the cabin of new Honda vehicles like the 2013 Accord using Apple's new "Eyes Free" software.

Connecting with the car's Bluetooth and using the built-in speakers and microphone, drivers will now be able to use navigation, send texts, make calls and pick music from their Siri enabled iPhones without ever having to look at the screen. Simply shout your commands to the cabin and Siri will respond with the same helpful guidance she always does.

"iPhone has become so integral to people's lives that they continue to use them in their vehicles," says Vici Poponi, assistant vice president of Automobile Product Planning. "Offering Honda and Acura owners Siri and its Eyes Free mode via Bluetooth is an incredible opportunity to provide next-generation connectivity and meet our customer's ever-changing needs."1
