Hope someone can help. This year, Honda released the Honda Connect system in their cars, the system runs on the Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 platform (yeah old I know) although it appears to be completely locked down, no Play store available! You can get into the typical Android settings menu where you can enable 'allow unknown sources', there is even an app available which lets you choose an APK from the USB stick, it will run through the installation routine although never completes. There is a Honda App Store built in although there is only 1 app available (spoilt for choice right!!!)

What kind of security do you think this unit has fitted? Has anyone ever come across something similar? Would love to install poweramp and Spotify so any advice appreciated.

TIA

Hisden menu
Hello, I'm also interested. Actually, I've juste discovered a hidden menu by holding power+menu+brightness for about 2 seconds. In this menu, we can enable developer mode but apk install is still not possible...
Everything is explain in an other post on piloteers.

Unfortunately Honda Connect is not Honda Link, your combination does not work here in Europe. Here we already have an access to Android parameters, but developer menu is missing, and we can't activate it by tapping multiple times on build number

So, I took some photos to show you my Honda Connect system, and the hidden menu by holding power+menu+brightness for 4 seconds (and not 2).

Thanks for the developer menu tip. I have a Civic and CR-V with Honda Connect in the UK, I'll first need to splice together a USB A-A cable but once done I'll connect up a laptop in developer menu and see what we get.

Someone at piloteers.org was able to get adb connection over vi-fi. But still with no success installing custom apk.
How was your experiment with A-A USB cable?

I am Also very interested. You can mirror link your htc m8/9 phone but it would be better just to use the android itself. It has plenty of power from its Tegra chip. An a/a usb you say. I will buy one
