Honda’s Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink allows you to safely engage in cellular calls while driving. Here are instructions (along with a video, below) to walk you through how to set up Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® for your 2016 Honda CR-V.

  • Put your CR-V into park.
  • Ensure that Bluetooth® is enabled on your mobile device. If it is not enabled on your mobile device, complete the following steps using your mobile device to enable it:
    • Select “ Settings ”.
    • Select “ Bluetooth ”.
    • An option to activate Bluetooth® will appear on your smartphone screen (this may look like a bar that you can swipe or an “On” button that you can select). Swipe or select accordingly to activate Bluetooth® on your mobile device.

Once your CR-V is in park and Bluetooth® is activated on your mobile device, use the Honda Display Audio touchscreen to complete the following steps to “pair” or connect your mobile device:

  • Select “ Settings ”.
  • Select “ Phone ”.
  • Select “ Bluetooth® Device List ”.
  • Select “ Add Bluetooth® Device ”.
  • A notification regarding Bluetooth® activation will appear. Select “ Continue ” if you enabled Bluetooth® on your mobile device. If you have not enabledBluetooth® on your mobile device, reference steps previously listed to do so.
  • Using your Honda Display Audio touchscreen once again, select the name of your mobile device (this will likely be “[Your Name]’s Phone”).
    • If the name of your mobile device does not appear, select “Phone Not Found”.

Then, on your mobile device, activate the “HandsFreeLink”. You can locate the option to activate this link on the mobile device screen used to activateBluetooth®.
Your Honda Display Audio touchscreen will then generate a six digit code. Likewise, your mobile device will generate a six digit code. If these codes are identical, select “Pair” on your mobile device. A message will appear on your Honda Display Audio touchscreen to notify you that the “pairing” or connecting is successful.

Your mobile device and CR-V have been “paired” or connected. Now, your Honda Display Audio touchscreen will provide you with a series of questions and two answer choices per each question. The answers you select will accordingly enable or disable the following Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink features :

  • HondaLink Assist (a feature that attempts to alert emergency services if your CR-V experiences a crash)
  • Automatic Phone Synchronization (a feature that imports your contacts and call history)

Now that you have completed the Bluetooth HandsFreeLink installation, you can entertain calls and texts without moving your eyes from the road or hands from the wheel. If you have any feedback or inquiries, please come by Keenan Honda of Doylestown PA, or call us at 877-621-4216.
