AcuraLink Connect App and Website

Did you forget to lock your doors? You don’t have to walk to the garage to find out. Just log into a virtual version of your vehicle and lock the doors remotely. It’s just one of the many things you can do from virtually anywhere with the new Connect app and website.

The AcuraLink Connect App Includes:
A virtual dashboard that lets you check your odometer, fuel level and tire pressure status, plus run diagnostics
A virtual key that lets you lock or unlock the doors, flash the headlights and sound the horn
One touch assistance that can summon a tow truck or an emergency response
A message center where you can receive information from Acura and schedule service
A digital owner’s manual with complete, searchable information about your vehicle

Cloud-Based Navigation*

With an active Connect subscription, your vehicle’s navigation system gains a new, cloud-based dimension. You can even access your vehicle’s maps using the smartphone in your pocket or the computer in your office. You can search for destinations, plot a route then send them to your vehicle’s onboard navigation system.
