It’s always a bit of a learning curve when you’re adjusting to a new-to-you car. But before you know it, everything about your car will feel easy and natural to you—including your
Honda CR-V’s
Bluetooth system.
Connecting to a 2011 CR-V’s Bluetooth is a pretty straightforward process. Here’s what you need to do:
  • With your car parked and your phone’s Bluetooth on and in discovery mode, press and release the HFL Talk button.
  • When prompted, say “Phone Setup” and then say “Pair.”
  • The HFL system will give you a four-digit code.
  • From your phone’s Bluetooth settings, select HFL and enter the four-digit code.
  • Follow the prompts and name your phone pairing in the HFL system.
Once your phone is set up, you’ll be ready to make hands-free calls and stream your music with ease!
