The big news for 2014 is Honda’s all-new 7-inch touchscreen HondaLink infotainment system. The new smartphone integrated system runs a version of Honda’s familiar software adapted to a single screen interface with touch and slide gesture commands. While you can opt for standard navigation in the EX-L with Navigation model, the EX and EX-L trims integrate Honda’s new iPhone integrated nav option which costs just $65 (plus a cable) and reminds me of GM’s Bringo integrated navigation system. (In a good way.) I have long thought that this type of solution is the way to go and Honda has found a way to make it work even without Apple’s CarPlay software interface being finalized. Sadly Android owners will have to wait a while before a similar solution is available for them.
