Today, Honda announced that Eyes Free will be coming to the 2013 Accord, as well as the Acura RDX and ILX.
From Honda’s press release:
American Honda today announced it will integrate support for Siri, the intelligent assistant that helps you get things done just by asking, into its 2013 Honda Accord and Acura RDX and ILX models as a dealer installed option. Later this year, owners with a compatible iPhone running iOS 6 can direct Siri to perform a number of specific tasks while they safely keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel. Using Eyes Free mode, Siri takes hands-free functionality even further and minimizes distractions even more by keeping your iOS device’s screen from lighting up.
In November, Chevrolet announced that Eyes Free would be coming to the Chevrolet Spark and Sonic in 2013, and Hyundai did the same earlier this month.
Edit: Actually with Apple Maps you’d probably end up in the sea anyway.
Wow that dash looks terrible lol
Needs to replace all those buttons with iPad mini!
+1 for Siri in cars!
Oh well, it probably will be a standard feature on at least higher trimmed models next year.
God, car insides are getting uglier and uglier, more and more buttons. Wish Steve Jobs’ plans for car re-invention are still somewhere at Apple.
Having driven Tesla Model S, whose dashboard is a gigantic LCD touchscreen, I am not sure if that’s the right approach. When I am driving, I like to be able to feel the UI without looking at it (at least no more than a quick glance). And not to mention all the fingerprint smudges.
Where’s the love?
