Android Auto gives drivers a simple, intuitive way to access maps, messaging, music and other popular smartphone apps and services through Acura’s True Touchpad Interface. Compatible with Android 5.0 and higher, Android Auto integration is now standard on all 2019 and 2020 Acura RDX models.
Android Auto integration is available in the U.S. free of charge via an over-the-air update. The system update also includes a variety of feature and performance enhancements to elevate the overall RDX user experience. The third generation RDX customers can check the True Touchpad Interface home screen System Update button to accept and begin the update through a simple process. Using the vehicle’s embedded 4G LTE Wi-Fi system, the new software is downloaded in the background while the vehicle is being driven or when turned off. To initiate the update, however, the vehicle must be on and running in a well ventilated area.
Acura is the luxury vehicle division of Japanese automaker Honda. The Acura lineup features six distinctive models – the RLX premium luxury sedan; the TLX performance luxury sedan; the ILX sport sedan; the five-passenger RDX luxury crossover SUV; the seven-passenger Acura MDX, America’s all-time best-selling three-row luxury SUV; and the next-generation, electrified NSX supercar.
