Steering Wheel-Mounted Controls
While it might sound quite inconsequential, one of the coolest and most convenient technologies that has made its way to the 2016 Honda CR-V is steering wheel-mounted controls for the audio system. While the 7” display audio touchscreen is awesome in its own right, it wouldn’t be safe to constantly use it while your hands are supposed to be on the wheel, so instead just use these great buttons implemented right into said wheel.
Much like the steering wheel-mounted controls were designed to prevent you from constantly paying attention to the display audio screen, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink was created to further pry you away from your cell phone while in the driver’s seat. It allows you to make calls through your audio system, which is cool enough in and of itself, but there are also controls mounted onto the steering wheel just like the audio controls, once again keeping your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.
HondaLink Next Generation
Last but not least, HondaLink Next Generation is now available in the CR-V. Aside from sounding like a season of Star Trek, the next generation of HondaLink is the interface you’ll navigate on your display audio touchscreen. It now allows you to touch, pinch and even swipe just like your cell phone, which if you connect right to your vehicle you can then find music, podcasts and more right in your vehicle.
