What is Honda Bluetooth HandsFreeLink?
One question that we get a lot when helping people with different features inside the vehicle, is how exactly the Honda Bluetooth HandsFreeLink system works. We thought this would be the perfect subject for this week’s How’s This Work, so that we can give you a rundown of what exactly it is and then dive into how it works.

HandsFreeLink is Honda’s Bluetooth connection system. It makes it easier for you to pair your mobile device to your vehicle’s infotainment system, thus allowing you to do things like place and receive calls, change the music and even listen to a text message. But let’s dive into how it works, as most of the questions we get have to do with how to use it.
How does HandsFreeLink work?
The most important thing about a Bluetooth connectivity system like HandsFreeLink is that it doesn’t create an extra distraction from the road. It is important to keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road, and with the aptly-named HandsFreeLink both of these things are possible. After connecting your phone to your vehicle through Bluetooth, your car essentially becomes your vehicle, allowing you to speak to it and interact by simply using buttons found on your steering wheel.
All that you really have to do is figure out how to connect your phone to your vehicle, which will vary by the car and phone that you have. Your infotainment system should help you through the process of pairing your phone and car together once you click on the HandsFreeLink button on the display audio unit. The video below should also assist you in getting your phone paired. But if you have any other specific questions or run into issues with the process, don’t hesitate to give us a call and we’d be happy to help you through it.
