Honda Motor Europe has announced the availability of its new Honda RoadSync app for motorcycles. The bespoke app works together with Honda’s newly developed connectivity system for motorcycles and scooters, the Honda Smartphone Voice Control system, to allow riders to take advantage of several of the most useful functions of their Android smartphone.
The Honda Smartphone Voice Control system is available as standard fitment on the 21YM, X-ADV, CB1000R and Forza 750, and as an option on the Forza 350 scooter. This new system enables riders to control their smartphone using wireless connection via Bluetooth between their smartphone and their compatible motorcycle or scooter. Having downloaded the Honda RoadSync app, with a paired Android OS smartphone and a Bluetooth helmet-mounted headset (with audio input), riders will be able to:
- Navigate easily to favourite places and local points of interest
- Make and receive phone calls
- Generate and respond to SMS text messages, as well as other messaging apps
- Listen to music via a favourite streaming app
- Check the day’s local weather forecast, and, when using navigation, the weather forecast of their destination
All functionality of the app is operated through a combination of voice input and a 4-way toggle switch located on the left handlebar, allowing the rider to safely store their smartphone in a pocket and remain fully connected.
Developed by Honda, the Honda RoadSync app will be rolled out across Europe, starting from December 2020 with availability in the UK, with EU countries to follow in 2021. The proprietary Honda technology can be further developed, in the future, by Honda in response to evolving needs of customers.
