Question Update to Apple CarPlay/Android Auto possible?

Quote:
Honda unveiled a midlife update for its midsize Accord, a lightly freshened model that will play nice with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
Can our TLX's be updated to this new capability?

I would suspect that the update provided with the 2016 Accord does not involve any drastic hardware modification. The Software should be able to be ported over to our current systems so that we could enjoy this new capability.

With the bashing of the dual screens for Acura/Honda, I think the pundits will be eating their words when they see the benefit of both screens with this new interface.

I heard from a reliable source that Acura won't be getting it for 16's at all. Maybe 17's. Don't think its a priorty.
My money says won't be upgradable and will only be on new models.

Is it a bad idea to install Pioneer apple car play and replace the current TLX system?

It just depends on how it integrates with the car. You don't want to lose any of the functionality that you have currently.

I would never do that...the system is very integrated with other functions of the car....

Apart having Google Maps on screen with CarPlay, what is the benefit of this stuff ?
Audio control from steering wheel works with bluetooth - Siri is available from the car - Messages are displayed/told by the phone with possibility to answer them (with Google Voice).
... And to have map on-screen you just have to put the phone in front of the display

I don't see a lot of innovation coming from CarPlay and Android Auto.

Another point of view, being able to control with gestures and HUD adds a really interesting point in Navdy

But I confess I found infotainment a little old/passed... but still functional. And after all it is all I ask to it, being functional (even if I love bells and whistles )

I agree with you @Replayman. I guess it is the geek in me that wants the latest. For my last road trip, I had all that I needed with the built-in infotainment.
The only issue I have right now is the lack of replying to a Text with canned responses (IOS).

Can't you do this with Siri ? It works well by voice with Google Voice.

Getting free map updates is an advantage over the current Navi constraints...including POI, etc....
