The Honda RoadSync app exemplifies Honda's dedication to integrating cutting-edge technology with the exhilaration of motorcycle riding. Tailored for Honda's latest models, namely the 2024 Honda XL750 Transalp and Honda CB750 Hornet, the app allows riders to manage essential smartphone functions without compromising safety.

The Honda RoadSync app is compatible with both Android and iOS devices and is available for download from the respective app stores. Riders can easily connect their smartphones to their motorcycles via Bluetooth, ensuring a seamless and intuitive user experience.

The new RoadSync App interacts with Honda's Smartphone Voice Control System, a standard feature on both the 2024 Honda XL750 Transalp and Honda CB750 Hornet models. The system allows riders to control their smartphone via Bluetooth® connectivity.

The download of the "Honda RoadSync app", the pairing of the motorcycle with a smartphone and the use of a Bluetooth® headset attached to the helmet (with audio input) allow the rider to easily access the functions of the app.

All functions of the app are operated by a combination of voice commands and the switch unit on the left side of the handlebars. This allows riders to store their smartphones safely while in use.

Features available on the app include navigation with Google Maps, the basis for the navigation of the "Honda RoadSync App". The directions are transmitted to the rider via voice output. Five preset favourite places can be saved. In addition, it is possible to set a target by voice command.

Five frequently used contacts can be saved, which can be selected by voice search. In the case of incoming calls, the system transmits the name of the caller to the rider via narrator.

There are five standard quick messages stored that can be converted to personalised messages. The riders can select a contact by voice search and then send the contact an SMS message by voice input. Incoming messages are transmitted to the rider via voice over. Supported messenger apps include WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.

Riders can select a favourite music app (Google Play Music, Spotify, Amazon Music, etc) in the settings of the Honda RoadSync App before they set off on the ride.

Local weather data can be checked for the next hour, the next three hours or the next five hours. When using navigation, a detailed prediction for the destination is also available.
