When most drivers think about advanced tech features, connectivity technology that brings pedestrian life and driving life comes to mind. These CR-V standard and available tech features make it easy to stay connected to your smartphone and digital life while behind the wheel.
Bluetooth: Most drivers expect Bluetooth on their new vehicles, and the CR-V delivers with wireless phone calls and streaming audio. Just pair your Bluetooth-compatible device to the CR-V and it will connect automatically every time you start the car.
Display Audio: This available 7-inch touchscreen system brings a crystal-clear display that makes it easy to manage your media with a few taps on the screen. It also brings advanced connectivity features like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Android Auto and Apple CarPlay: Phone syncing used to be hit or miss, depending on the phone manufacturer, but Android Auto and Apple CarPlay offer seamless syncing and bring your familiar phone apps to the CR-V dashboard.
HondaLink: The Honda telematics system brings vehicle services, podcasts, music, and social media together through the HondaLink app, putting familiar phone services and vehicle maintenance scheduling at your fingertips on the phone and behind the wheel.
Navigation: The CR-V has an available navigation system that syncs up with GPS satellites for peace of mind when driving somewhere new. Satellite-linked navigation can route you around traffic and find points of interest both at home and on the road.

Comparing to the Competition
We know you have no shortage of crossover options, and we think it’s important for you to compare the CR-V to the competition.
Here’s how a couple of other crossovers stand up to the Honda:
Chevy Equinox: The Equinox has just four trims to choose from, and while the standard model offers comparable amenities to the CR-V, the trims offer fewer choices.
Nissan Rogue: The Rogue has come a long way in recent years, giving drivers some features that compare to the CR-V, but it’s still lacking a standard rearview camera, stereo anti-theft system, MP3 player, and more. See our 2016 Nissan Rogue review for the full details.
