  • Acura/ ELS Surround Sound System
    Technology Plus Package

    Grammy® award-winning recording engineer and producer, Elliot Scheiner (Acura/ELS Surround®32), helped design the ILX audio system to reproduce music the way it’s heard in the recording studio. The 10-speaker system can reproduce 5.1 surround sound using DTS®63 Neural Surround™ circuitry, which can extract 6-channel surround sound from 2-channel digital sources, such as the hard disk drive, CDs, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio4, USB7 -connected iPod8, flash drive containing MP3, WMA®6 or AAC music files, or Bluetooth®11 Audio. Most iPhones with the Pandora®45 application, when connected by USB, enable Pandora operation using audio system controls. Almost all audio system functions can be performed by Voice Recognition.

  • Navigation w/ Voice Recognition
    Technology Plus Package

    Part of the Technology Plus Package, the Acura Navigation System10 features an eight-inch screen mounted high in the center control panel for easy visibility, which also serves as the monitor for the multi-view rear camera50. Using the interface dial or the Voice Recognition system, you can enter an address or have the system find a location from its vast hard drive destination database. The screen will plot your path on the map and show special displays to guide you through freeway ramps, interchanges and forks in the road. The system can show you nearby gas stations, ATMs and other points of interest.

  • SMS / Email / Siri Eyes Free
    Standard Feature

    Handheld texting while driving is illegal in most states and highly dangerous in all states. The integrated SMS text message and email function44 enables you to respond to incoming text messages while following the law and minimizing potential driver distraction. When driving with a paired, activated, SMS-compatible phone, the system notifies you of incoming text messages and asks if you want the message read aloud to you and have a choice of six canned replies you can send with the push of a button.

    Drivers with paired, Siri-equipped iPhones®8 can also use voice-command to perform these (and other) functions as well ask the familiar, friendly interface to perform multiple functions including reading and sending texts, checking weather, sports scores and stock quotes, making calendar appointments and on Premium or Technology Plus Package models, read emails.

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink
    Standard Feature

    The Bluetooth®11 HandsFreeLink® system works with many Bluetooth®-enabled cell phones to let you receive and initiate phone calls through the audio system without ever taking your hands off the wheel. The Multi-Information Display can show the caller’s name or number, while the center panel display can show reception and battery strength, depending on the phone. Compatible phones with the MPA protocol can even read text (SMS) messages through the audio system and let you send one of six replies without touching your phone. A one-time pairing process enables your Acura to communicate wirelessly with the phone, and up to six different phones can be paired with it at a time. After the initial pairing, a phone can be operated through the vehicle audio system without ever leaving your pocket or purse.
