The compatibility between the infotainment system offered by Honda and today’s most popular smartphone platforms has been a huge improvement in the lives of the owners who use it during their daily commutes. Adding the ability to safely integrate smartphones into a drive has proven to be very popular. However, we all know how quickly smartphone technology advances, it only makes sense that the automotive interface for those devices would have to keep pace. The Meridian Honda product team has been getting a lot of questions from customers wondering, ‘Can I get a software update for Android Auto™?’ According to some early reports our product experts found online, yes, those updates are coming in the near future. Let’s take a look at what you can expect.
From the information we’ve been able to find so far, Google is redesigning the entire user interface for Android Auto™. The first major change that users will notice is the all-new app-launcher. The version that is currently being used has five buttons across the bottom. After the upgrade, this will be replaced an array of applications which can be scrolled vertically. The idea behind the change is that the new Android Auto™ will look more like the screen layout on a user’s smartphone.
The biggest change that should get Honda owners using Android Auto™ excited will be the navigation bar located at the bottom of the touchscreen. Regardless of what application is currently being used, the bar will stay in place. However, it’s functionality will change based on what app is being used. The authors of the material we found used an interesting example. Once the new software is downloaded, a driver can be using Google Maps to navigate while still skipping forward and back using one of several available podcast apps or music players.
When will the Android Auto™ be available?
Unfortunately, we don’t have an exact date when Honda owners will be able to download the newest update. The best timetable we have available says that Google will release the new software this summer. We’ll provide more details on how you can get the update when it’s available.

I've really enjoyed dealing with Adam on my last 3 Hondas The thing I like best about my new 2016 CRV is the back-up screen!!!
I think it is an all around good business to buy a car from! The service department is absolutely wonderful, the staff is kind and caring, and they can fix your car faster than u ever thought
Just wanted to say "Thank you!" for verifying an issue with a tire on my daughter's 2007 Honda Civic as I was driving her from the greater Houston area to Charlotte (and her on to Virginia). The Service team was friendly, accommodating, communicative at every step and if we lived anywhere close, I'd bring vehicles in there for service. Thanks again for taking care of ... us today on our travels!
Caring and professional work. The people were friendly. Would recommend to everyone. I have always had a very good experience.
Came in for an oil change and tire rotation and Josh let me know a couple more things that needed to be done.
Noone was pushy, they listened to what I wanted. They were very fair to deal with. My time in and out was fast.
Fast and Friendly to the most satisfactory degree. Always ready to do what is needed and always referenced me as to the work done or needed.
