Shutting off AcuraLink®
You can turn off the messaging system from the AcuraLink® interface in your vehicle, in the My Account section, or by contacting Acura Client Relations.
Most AcuraLink information is uploaded via satellite. Bluetooth® is used only to communicate diagnostic information about your vehicle directly with Acura (and only if you have activated the optional diagnostic data submission via AcuraLink). Your Bluetooth®-enabled phone will be connected for approximately 20 seconds for each data exchange session. You are responsible for any charges for minutes used for this feature.
Speaking to an Acura representative through AcuraLink
If you have a Bluetooth®-enabled phone paired with AcuraLink, some types of messages (such as service reminders, recall notices and diagnostic information) will include an option to be connected automatically to your Acura dealer, Acura Client Relations, or Acura Roadside Assistance as appropriate.
Vehicle information transmission
If you have paired a compatible phone with a data transmission service, Acura can analyze your vehicle's diagnostic information to locate the trouble and identify potential areas where service is needed. This data is then sent back to your vehicle through AcuraLink. Additionally, diagnostic data received from all customers is analyzed in aggregate to help us improve the design of future models. We value your privacy; your vehicle information will not be shared with other parties for commercial use.
Scheduled service appointments reminders
If you choose to activate Service Reminders on AcuraLink, you will receive reminders about dealer service appointments that you schedule via Acura Owners Site. This service does not require any services from a cell phone.
NOTE: To set your AcuraLink communication preferences, please visit the My Account section.
AcuraLink is available in the 48 contiguous United States. Currently, satellite coverage is not available in Alaska or Hawaii.
