    Hello,

    I purchased a 2012 Honda Civic Ex 10 days ago and I love it! My only question is this...I have paired my iPhone 4 with the bluetooth in the Civic. It works fine for incoming and outgoing calls. However, I use the Navigon app on my iPhone for GPS and when linked to the bluetooth, I do not receive any vocal commands from the GPS software. Is there a way around this?

    Thank You

    Can I ask what app you're using to do gps? It may help, as I could see what the company says, or what honda says

    As of the release of iPhone OS 3.0, the iPhone supports A2DP. I don't see how you would not be able to make it work. I saw someone make a comment about having the audio via car speaker vs phone for audio. Do you hear any audio prompts at all through your iphone speaker?

    Thank you for the information...because of it, I found what I needed to do. Once the phone has connected to the bluetooth, you need to start the application before plugging it into the USB. I was plugging it into the USB prior to starting the application. Again, thanks for all of your help!

    Hello,

    Please also keep in mind, once your phone links to your car, the bluetooth profile allows for audio streaming, the iPhone will by default stream all audio over a2dp once you connect with your car, what you can do is set your source to Bluetooth, and you'll hear all the audio your phone makes including playing music etc.. the other alternative, allow the bluetooth to connect, then plug in via USB.

    Best!

    I assume the USB is only
    for the power, right?

    You can play audio over USB...or use it to charge your phone.
