All 2019 RDX models are Apple CarPlay™51 compatible. Just connect your iPhone®8 (iPhone 5 or newer running iOS 7 or newer) to the USB port, select Apple CarPlay™ on the touch screen and familiar Apple® application icons will appear on the navigation screen for phone use, accessing music or other audio sources, and even using Apple's navigation software.
- When the phone and car are connected for the first time, there is an initial set up procedure that allows your car to access your phone. After that, accessing Apple CarPlay™ from your connected phone will be as simple as selecting it from the media sources on the center display touch screen.
- Apple CarPlay™ appears on the center display screen to minimize eye diversion from the road. Rather than requiring you reach for that screen, Apple CarPlay™ is operated using the easy-to-reach True Touchpad Interface.™
- The apps are pared down specifically for ease of use while driving.
- To further minimize eye diversion, and hand use, Siri® voice commands can be used for nearly all operations.
