How do you connect Bluetooth to a 2013 Honda Accord?

I just bought a used 2013 Honda Accord and I’m trying to get my smartphone connected. I’m admittedly a little behind the times when it comes to using car tech since my last vehicle was an old beater from the 90s. How do you connect Bluetooth to a 2013 Honda Accord?

Don’t worry—getting used to new technology can be daunting at first, but we can give you a hand! In order to pair your phone with your 2013 Honda Accord, the first thing you should do is access your smartphone’s SETTINGS menu, and make sure the BLUETOOTH slider is in the ON position.
Next, push the button on your center dashboard that’s labeled PHONE, then wait for your car to ask if you want to add a new device, and choose YES. Use your dashboard controls to find your Android or iOS device on the list and select it. Then wait for your car’s display screen to give you a PIN.
Once you have your PIN, open the BLUETOOTH menu on your smartphone, find your 2013 Accord on the list of options, and enter the PIN when prompted. Now all you have to do is wait a few seconds for your phone and car to recognize each other.
With Bluetooth, you can safely use your smartphone while driving to make and receive hands-free phone calls and texts, and play music from your preferred streaming apps!
