A Suite of Advanced Technologies 

If you landed on our page wondering, “What is HondaLink,” you now know that it’s a connectivity suite of easy-access apps in the in-dash touchscreen of your Honda model. That said, it’s quite a nuanced system, coming in five feature sets: Basic, Link, Security, Remote, and Concierge. Most Honda vehicles come standard with HondaLink Basic. This gets Irmo drivers access to their digital owner’s manual, service scheduling alerts, recall alerts, parking reminders, and roadside assistance. Here are some of the features you’ll get when you opt for Link or above: 


  • Check mileage, fuel range, and oil life
  • Request enhanced roadside assistance 
  • Remote-access your car 
  • Use a live assistant to make reservations 
  • Receive service reminders, security alerts, and speed alerts 
  • Send destinations to your navigation system 
  • And more!
