Android Auto now available on the Honda Africa Twin
The Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin can now run Android Auto. Local dealers can install the software.
If you have a Honda Africa Twin and use an Android smartphone, today is a good news day. The Japanese brand has confirmed that Android Auto is now available on the Honda CRF1100L. Riders will be able to have their Android phone connect to the bike’s infotainment system. The crisp 6.5-inch TFT touchscreen display is an ideal size to see the various app functions easily.
The ability to run Google Maps on the bike while riding will be a major draw for many users. It will make finding places while touring even easier and could be used to search for specific points of interest, such as the nearest coffee shop or petrol station.
Honda already offers the Apple CarPlay function with the Africa Twin. It’s part of an increase in connectivity that Honda is offering across the range. Other models with more integrated connectivity include the GL1800 Gold Wing, CB1000R, Forza 750, X-ADV and Forza 350.
