Pricing for the dealer-installed option is still pending, Honda spokeswoman Robyn Eagles said. The news follows a similar announcement from GM, with other automakers — Audi, BMW, Chrysler, Jaguar/Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz and Toyota, according to Engadget — set to follow.
Dealer-equipped cars “should already recognize” the system from a compatible iPhone, Eagles said. “It’s going to be done through new software installed into the telematics system in the car. You shouldn’t have to download anything” in terms of apps. It does not work with the iPad, however.
