Does the 2011 Honda Pilot have Bluetooth?

is equipped with Bluetooth—but only for taking hands-free calls. The Honda Pilot received Bluetooth music streaming capability in the next model year. This means that you will have to purchase a Bluetooth adapter to play music from your device.
To set up your Bluetooth-compatible device on a 2011 Honda Pilot, first ensure that Bluetooth is activated on your mobile device. Next, press the Phone button on your Honda Pilot’s steering wheel, which is located on the left-hand side.
