Far all the nice Honda tech in my Touring, I really, really wish they had incorporated wireless cell phone charging and Bluetooth connectivity for Android Auto.


My favorite thing this for is just the looks of it. It's a beautiful car by any standard, but especially so given the relatively modest price tag. Parked beside a white late model BMW last night, and my wife commented that our Insight looked more elegant.

Honda might be saving it for the mid-gen refresh.

If you notice, our rear tail light design looks really similar to the Audi A3. ;) We also have a thread discussing the even more elegant Japanese Insight. https://www.gen3insight.com/forum/258-2019-honda-insight-features-equipment/2002-can-we-take-moment-appreciate-how-beautiful-japanese-insight.html

Wireless CarPlay and wireless Android Auto are included in the 2020 Fit, so hopefully will be headed to Honda's higher end models in the near future... but would have been nice to have now. I try to use bluetooth connection as much as possible instead.

This new dongle being discussed on reddit is suppose to make factory head units enable wireless carplay.

I'm okay with plugging in my phone to keep the battery charged so I will pass on the expensive dongle.
Waze (via CarPlay) would drain the battery quickly unless plugged in for my 1+ hour drive. I'm good with the 1-foot lightning cable. I rarely need to charge at home as it's 100% when I arrive at/from work.

Wireless android auto only came out April 2018, so it's no surprise they didn't include.

It's actuallly worked out well for me, since my phone doesn't have wireless charging, having to plug in means I always keep my phone charged, did take some getting used to.
