If the recent news regarding the 2013 Honda Civic was any indication, our favorite automaker is ahead of the curve when it comes to outfitting our vehicles with cutting-edge technologies. And now that Apple's Siri Eyes Free mode is an available option at our dealership, we here at Friendly Honda can hardly keep up.

For those unfamiliar, Siri Eyes Free integration allows a driver to synch up their iPhone to their vehicle's infotainment system. From there, they can use Siri's voice-activated controls to perform a variety of specific tasks while still keeping their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.

As for what those specific tasks include, we're looking at everything from turn-by-turn voice navigation to sending or reading text messages and emails. With all the gadgets that are distracting drivers on the road these days, innovation like this couldn't have come at a better time.

"Honda recognizes the power of Siri Eyes Free to meet connectivity and convenience needs of its customers in a responsible manner," says Art St. Cyr, vice president of Product Planning and Logistics at American Honda. "With technology becoming further integrated into people's lives, we are happy to provide next-generation connectivity and meet our customers' ever-changing needs."1

If you'd like to learn more about everything Siri Eyes Free will have to offer, the experts in our car parts department would be happy to fill you in. Or if you'd rather experience it first-hand behind the wheel of a 2014 Honda Accord, your test drive awaits here in Poughkeepsie, NY.
