    Honda has completely redesigned their 2016 Civic. Besides more aggressive styling & performance as well as more premium internal features, the new Civic will also feature support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Here's a quote with a few of the tidbits,

    It's great to see that the various mobile smart-device makers are finally showing the software prowess in more mainstream automobiles. What do you folks think?

    That car looks actually pretty decent. Its still no where as awesome as my WRX, but still, much better than generations past. Glad to see more Android Auto equipped cars. I'm still waiting to see the aftermarket head units drop in price.

    So is it one or the other or will it ship with both versions of iOS and Android?

    I have a 2016 Civic which I have been using with a Samsung Galaxy S9+ and the Honda Handsfree Link system. It worked great until the phone updated itself to Android Pie. Now when an incoming call hits the system, the ringer on the Handsfree Link never stops even after I disconnect the call. The only way to stop the ringer on the Honda is to cut the car off or reboot the car's audio system. Neither one of these can be done safely while still driving! Anyone else had this experience?

    Welcome to the Forum. Sorry to hear that. The only thing I can think of is to completely remove the phone from the Honda Bluetooth system, somewhere in the cars Settings is a remove device / forget / reset to factory defaults option. Then completely remove the car stereo from the phones Bluetooth Settings. Then reboot the phone and pair them together again as a brand new connection. Watch for all prompts on the phone and make sure all Permission prompts are enabled as they connect. I have had to do this a few times over the years, with different vehicle Bluetooth systems, after Android OS updates. Hope that helps.

    Welcome to the Forum lisajack12. I'm confused though, how does your post correlate to a Honda <> Android Bluetooth issue?
