Apple’s Siri coming to 2013 Honda Accord & 2 Acura models
Chevy is no longer the only car brand with announced plans to bring Apple’s Siri(s AAPL) voice assistant to new car models. On Wednesday, Honda announced that its 2013 edition of the Accord will be enabled with Siri Eyes Free mode, along with the Acura RDX and Acura ILX.
Honda called Siri Eyes Free an “in-vehicle tool that will help meet the connectivity and convenience needs of its customers in a responsible manner” in a press release. Siri’s Eyes Free mode is available to drivers who own an iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 running iOS 6. It’s meant to let drivers interact with their iPhone while keeping their focus on the road. With Eyes Free drivers can make hands-free calls, send texts, listen to messages, make and find calendar appointments and select songs to play. Honda will integrate its Bluetooth HandsFree Link in-car software with Siri.
