Honda Cars Philippines (HCPI) officially launched the Honda CONNECT along with the All-New Honda CR-V last September 13, 2023. It is the brand’s take towards connected services in the automotive industry, coming in the form of a smartphone application. It offers customers a full package of safety, security, and convenience, all while enhancing their ownership experience.
In the All-New CR-V, Honda CONNECT is a telematics-based (TCU) technology that connects the phone of the Honda owner with their car, offering a multitude of features such as Automatic Collision Detection, Security Alarm, Remote Diagnostic Support, Speed Alert, Geofencing, Vehicle Dashboard Information, Remote Vehicle Control, and Find My Car. All these TCU features are available on the Honda CONNECT with the All-New Honda CR-V and is being offered with a free three-year subscription.
HCPI is also pleased to share good news to valued owners of other Honda vehicles. There is an option to experience the Honda CONNECT application on other Honda models on a non-telematics (non-TCU) platform. This paves the way for all Honda owners to experience enhanced safety, security, and convenience through the Honda CONNECT. Features available for free on a non-TCU platform include Emergency Calls, Location Search, and News. Under Emergency Calls, the user can contact the Honda Call Center, Honda Dealer, the police, ambulance services, or even a 24/7 roadside assistance with much ease. Under Location Search, the user can search places of interest such as gas stations, ATMs, convenience stores, and especially Honda Dealers – where the user can call the Dealer, navigate to the Dealer, and more conveniently book a service. Lastly, the News feature consists of periodic maintenance reminders and product advisories.
Honda CONNECT users are also assured of peace of mind with any personal data collected, as these are processed with top confidentiality in mind and in accordance with data privacy laws. The app is also designed for easy installation and setup. With a few simple steps, you can connect your smartphone to your Honda, without the need for additional hardware or a hefty price tag. With Honda CONNECT, Honda is moving towards its global dream of zero traffic collision fatalities involving Honda vehicles and Safety for Everyone.
Customers are encouraged to download the Honda CONNECT app from the App Store, Play Store, or the Huawei App Gallery.
