    I was reading that in the USA they add WiFi on CR-V 4th Generation SUVs that came from Japan.

    "Most vehicles coming to the US from Japan don’t offer this feature, or the aftermarket service. Planet Honda is one of very few dealerships offering the option to add Wi-FI capability to a Honda in the state and the only dealership in the Denver area.
    For more information on the aftermarket Wi-FI add on, you can contact our sales team at 303-215-4200."

    Can anyone advice us of the instructions and or parts needed??? I am very interested in adding this feature if applicable for the pre-facelift model (I am not sure if possible).

    Alternatively can I install the newer 2015 EX radio GPS on my CR-V??? Will it fit?

    The idea was for the car monitor/radio/GPS to use the phones internet connection (3G or 4G) in order to use google maps, browser, google search, radio stations, videos, youtube, etc or even if supported to update Honda radio/GPS/dab/Bluetooth firmwares. In USA, I think WIFI and browser were supported on the same CR-V EX radio/navigation touchscreen though it was bundled with different software and wifi support.

    Surely you could tether your phone as a wifi hotspot and do the same?

    There is a solution with Mirabox Screen Mirroring for IOS airplay / Android miracast to CVBS RCA using AV-in cable of CR-V or also called mirror box car wifi (different make).

    Mirabox is a newly developed product that enables you to connect your smartphone or tablet to your car stereo (wifi connection between phone and mirabox, cvbs connectors between mirabox and car stereo screen). Mirabox reflect the content wirelessly to your car stereo DVD screen. Universal: Conpatible with all Car Audio AV-IN (CVBS). CR-V 2013 EX comes with AV-in cable.

    But I was looking maybe for a better solution??? since this is a messy solution and may give low resolution quality when mirroring


    Ichiban how would a wifi hotspot let me connect CR-V EX 2013 who has no wifi?? and no internet apps?? Did you mean I could use a tablet instead (It is certainly an option)? Can you please explain this if this is not what you meant??

    I was thinking of CR-V EX radio 2013 having a major software update like link connect, screen mirroring, google search, browser, wifi support,. No need for mirabox in this case. Would the 2015 CR-V EX radio fit in the 2013 CR-V?? or would Honda update existing CR-V radio software and add WiFi capability???? screen mirroring and browser apps?

    Time for a small serious joke, My CR-V 2013 2,0i EX will be the same as CR-V 2015, if front grille fits, or better with the grille below, and if EX 7" radio touchscreen fits as part of a fun project in order to get the WiFi compatibility, See below :Smile:

    The most important question is Can I replace the CR-V EX radio 2013 with the 7" newer EX radio from the facelift CR-V 2015????

    To remain standard you need a connect sat nav unit but your talking over £2000 to buy. I presume off the shelf double din units are now available with wifi and apps etc?
