In today’s fast-paced world, it’s essential to stay connected and entertained, even on long car rides.
Honda has made this possible by including an HDMI port in most of their models, including the Pilot, Odyssey, and CR-V.
Streaming videos and screen sharing in a Honda is a great way to stay connected and entertained while on the road.
With the latest technology, Honda vehicles are equipped with the ability to stream videos and screen share from your mobile device to the car’s display screen.
This feature allows you to watch your favorite movies, TV shows, and even share your phone’s screen in the car.
In this article, we will show you how to stream videos and screen share in a Honda.
How To Stream Videos And Screen Share In A Honda?
Streaming videos and screen sharing in a Honda can be done with a few simple steps.
Here is a detailed guide on how to do it:
Step 1: Get The Necessary Equipment
To stream videos and screen share in your Honda, you will need a digital AV adapter, an HDMI cable, and a charging cord.
The type of adapter and charging cord you need will depend on the type of device you have.
If you have an Apple product, such as an iPhone or iPad, you will need the Apple Lightning to Digital AV Adapter.
If you have a device with a USB Type-C, such as a Galaxy or Pixel, you will need the USB-C Digital AV Adapter.
In addition to the adapter, you will also need an HDMI cable and a charging cord.
The HDMI cable should be 3 feet or 1 meter in length and made of durable materials, such as braided nylon.
The charging cord should also be 3 feet or 1 meter in length and made of durable materials.
If you have an Apple device, you will need a USB to Lightning cord. If you have a Galaxy or Pixel, you will need a USB Type-A to USB Type-C cord.
Step 2: Locate The HDMI Port In Your Honda
The HDMI port in your Honda can typically be found on the back of the center console compartment.
In some Honda models, such as the Pilot, the HDMI port is located on the back of the center console compartment.
You can refer to your Honda’s user manual for more information on the location of the HDMI port.
Step 3: Connect The HDMI Cable And Charging Cord To The Adapter
Plug one end of the HDMI cable into the digital AV adapter and plug the other end into the HDMI port in your Honda.
Then, plug one end of the charging cord into the adapter and the other end into your device.
This will ensure that your device does not lose power while streaming videos.
Step 4: Connect The Adapter To Your Device
Once the HDMI cable and charging cord are connected to the adapter, plug the adapter into your device.
You should see a notification on your device indicating that it has detected the digital AV adapter.
On newer iPhones, a small blue symbol will appear in the top-left corner of the screen. On older iPhones, a larger blue ribbon will appear across the top of the screen.
Step 5: Stream Videos And Screen Share
Once your device is connected to the adapter and the adapter is connected to the HDMI port, you can start streaming videos and screen sharing.
Open the app of your choice, such as Netflix, and play a video. You should see a message on your device indicating that the video is now playing on your TV.
You can control the volume of the video with your Honda, but all other video functions, such as play, pause, and rewind, must be controlled through your device.
