|2012 Honda CR-V|
Tech Features in the newly redesigned Honda CR-V:
Eco Assist™ and ECON Mode
Integrated Navi Display, Rear-Entertainment System (RES), and intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID)
The i-MID comes standard on all CR-V models. Whereas the Navi and the RES either/or options on the EX-L.
Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®phone interface and Steering Wheel Mounted Controls
Hands-free Bluetooth® with steering wheel mounted controls comes standard on all models and makes it possible for the driver to make or answer calls without removing their hands from right where they belong, at 10 and 2 o’clock.
Numbers with voice tag can be stored in the system’s memory, while new numbers can be dialed by speaking the number. All of this information is automatically imported and logged on your phone’s call history, ensuring that you never lose a contact or a call.
Pandora Integration and SMS Text Messaging Function with Smartphones
Multi-angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines
The wide-view rearview camera safety feature was once just an option, but now comes standard on all models of the CR-V. Visible on the intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID), the camera shows what is immediately behind a vehicle about to back up — such as a pole, another car, or a dumpster… not that I’ve ever hit one (Yes, I have.) Guidelines help drivers gauge how close they are to an object and a dotted line indicates how much clearance you have to open the trunk.
