Just about everyone carries their smartphone with them everywhere they go (you may be reading this article from your phone right now). That’s why Honda offers the free app HondaLink® to make owning a Honda an even more enjoyable experience. Read on to learn about the HondaLink® app, and some of the remote features it offers.
What Is HondaLink®?
HondaLink® is an app that offers both free and subscription services related to your Honda. Know when to schedule a service appointment, set parental controls, manage your drivers, get real-time assistance, and much more. For now, we’ll focus on some of the remote features that are offered through the HondaLink® app, and the HondaLink® Remote Package.
Using HondaLink® to Remotely Start Your Vehicle
Alberta weather tends to be marked by extremes, whether that be long and cold winters or blistering hot summers (with no sign of spring or fall between). Thankfully, gone are the days of needing to leave the cozy confines of your current climate. Use the HondaLink® app’s Remote Start feature to start your vehicle at the time of your choosing. Your vehicle will start, in turn warming or cooling your vehicle depending on the climate control settings your vehicle was set to last, for a total of ten minutes. You can also turn your vehicle off, or extend the time it runs. This is just one way the HondaLink® app ensures you can stay comfortable whenever you’re using your vehicle.
Using HondaLink® to Find Your Vehicle
It’s probably safe to say that at one point or another, everyone has wandered aimlessly through an oversized parking lot, looking for their vehicle. Never lose your vehicle again, thanks to the Find My Car function on the HondaLink® app. If you’re at all unsure where you parked, open the HondaLink® app, select Find My Car, and then a map will appear showing you where your vehicle is. Still having trouble? The app also offers you four options to further navigate—Flash Lights, Turn on Horn/Lights, Directions to Car, or Share Location. One of these will surely be enough to help you find your vehicle, depending on the situation you find yourself in.
These are just a few of the many remote features available through the HondaLink® Remote Package found on the HondaLink® app. You’ll also have access to a Security Alarm Alert, Stolen Vehicle Locator, Destinations by Voice, and so much more. If you have any questions about HondaLink® (or the Remote Package), then contact us at Alberta Honda today and we’ll happily answer them.
