For some drivers, staying connected while on the road is more than just a convenience; it’s a necessity. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline technology features include Bluetooth phone and audio as standard and include a range of other available connectivity features to keep you synced up.
Bluetooth HandsFreeLink: Pair a smartphone with your Ridgeline once and it will automatically connect over Bluetooth for hands-free calls and streaming audio.
Display Audio Touchscreen: Ridgeline models with the available Display Audio touchscreen have an 8-inch 800×480 WVGA display that puts you in control of media and vehicle settings with a few taps.
Android Auto and Apple CarPlay: Go beyond Bluetooth with the Ridgeline’s available Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Sync up your iPhone or Android smartphone for advanced connectivity, bringing familiar apps like messages and maps to the Display Audio touchscreen.
HondaLink: This Honda-exclusive telematics system bridges the gap between your phone and your Ridgeline with a handful of Honda and third-party apps. Stream music, radio stations, podcasts, and even your social media feeds through the Ridgeline stereo. Powered by Aha, the available HondaLink system also turns your smartphone into a smart remote for the truck.
Navigation: Available satellite-linked navigation offers turn-by-turn directions, finds you the shortest route to your destination, and points you to possible stops along the way for food, fuel, or fun.
Voice Recognition: Stay focused on the road while easily controlling your new tech features with the Ridgeline’s available voice controls. Just say the word and the truck’s infotainment system will respond—it knows hundreds of commands.
Entertainment and connectivity are important, but Honda has always and will always put safety first. That’s why you’ll find some of the latest in driver assistance and accident prevention features among the 2017 Honda Ridgeline technology features.
Honda LaneWatch: This Ridgeline feature is found on the RTL-T trim and gives the driver a direct look at their passenger-side blind spot. Just signal to change lanes and the in-dash display will show you what’s on the rear passenger side of the vehicle thanks to a camera mounted on the passenger-side mirror.
Lane Departure Warning: This Honda Sensing safety feature works with Lane Keeping Assist to ensure the Ridgeline stays in its lane. If a front-mounted camera notices the lane markings shifting, it will warn the driver and then give the wheel a nudge to keep the truck centered.
Forward Collision Warning: Radar technology on the front of the Ridgeline lets this Honda Sensing feature detect when a collision is likely and warn the driver. If the driver fails to respond, the Collision Mitigation Braking System can apply brakes automatically.
Road Departure Mitigation: A camera on the Ridgeline enables this Honda Sensing safety feature to monitor the side of the road for common markings and signs, alerting the driver and automatically taking control of brakes or steering to keep from heading off-road unintentionally.
Adaptive Cruise Control: Keep pace with the cars around you and keep cruising with Honda Sensing’s Adaptive Cruise Control. This feature tracks the speed of other vehicles and adjusts your cruising speed automatically, speeding up or slowing down to stay with the flow of traffic.
