Carplay

The Carplay function works well you will need a long usb lighting cable. This cable has to be orignal or from a certified supplier otherwise it will not work. Also you need to connect a Bluetooth headset to your Honda screen. If have a cheap one from dimton the BlueRider M1-S.
I found a solution to make it wireless with a Bluetooth to wifi adapter. I bought it from https://carplay2air.com an adapter which us the Bluetooth and wifi it is working. The only thing you need to care about it that with the wireless solution you need to also take of your battery life fro your Iphone.
Then we come to the navigation apps there a only a couple who support carplay on this moment. I was looking for an app with offline maps,gpx import and also working offroad. But this is not so easy. I like to use Scenic but it is not yet approved for Carplay by Apple. If here is a biker who works for Apple may be you can help Scenic.
Then the question do you need Carplay? If you have a good nav system then not but if you dont have it Carplay is a good solution in combination with offline maps and you get lot of additional features.

Wonder if the My Route app team have this on their radar. They are also based in the Netherlands.

My concern with that whole set up would be cell service, well at lest when talking about navigating, I go to places where there is absolutely no service at all. So as a result, I never use my phone as a nav. aide.... I kinda wish Honda would of at least offered onboard GPS navigation, tho I do love the Apple car play, for the other features, just not for navigation.

If necessity is the mother of inventions, then laziness is the baby daddy. A.A.

I know but this app is not what I want. No direct import of tracks. If someone send you by mail a gpx file to your iphone then you would direcly open it with your nav app and not going to a site or pc to import it then tranfer it to your phone.

If you dont have cell service with a Iphone your navigation with offline maps will work because it has a internal GPS.
Also I know there more inside the Honda electronics because in my manual is mentioned that some data will be send to Honda.

Normally the iPhone just occasionally uses the GPS to help with positioning from pinging the cell towers it is not always active because of decreased battery life..

WOW They finally fixed that and now the map is stored in the phone’s memory and it pulled from there, it used to be pulled off the internet so you used to have to have cell service for maps to work... But admittedly I haven’t used my phone for navigation in years, first because of the way it used to work and secondly because I got a nice GPS and great detailed old school paper maps.
Tho I am curious how well it will work..
@ Smitf Have you used the iPhones maps in a area without cell service?

I believe that the current gps chipset is not using A-GPS. If you remove your simcard you still can use navigation.
