Using HFL

Place your phone where you can get good reception.

To use HFL, you need a Bluetooth-compatible cell 
phone. For a list of compatible phones, pairing 
procedures, and special feature capabilities:

U.S.: Visit automobiles.honda.com/handsfreelink/
or call 1-888-528-7876.

Canada: For more information on smartphone 
compatibility, call 1-888-528-7876.

Voice control tips

Aim the vents away from the ceiling and close the 
windows, as noise coming from them may interfere 
with the microphone.

Press and release the 

 button when you want to 

call a number using a stored voice tag. Speak 
clearly and naturally after a beep.

If the microphone picks up voices other than yours, 
the command may be misinterpreted.

To change the volume level, use the audio system’s 
volume knob or the remote audio controls on the 
steering wheel.

State or local laws may prohibit the operation of 
handheld electronic devices while operating a 
vehicle.
