Connected services company Agero will provide Acura’s “AcuraLink” infotainment system in the upcoming 2014 RLX.
Owners will be able to send destination information directly from their phones to the vehicle system, according to Agero. Despite that connectivity, the system will function more like GM’s OnStar service as a standalone.
In contrast, Ford’s Sync system works through a Bluetooth-enabled phone.
“This is the first time we’ve worked with Honda,” said Gary Wallace, Agero’s vice president of corporate relations to Automotive News. “We certainly hope to work with them more” in the future.
