As scheduled, Honda announced its next generation HondaLink connectivity system earlier today. Honda made the announcement via a Google Hangout. The new HondaLink puts a smartphone-like interface inside the car, with the ability to run a few apps off of your smartphone. Sounds a lot like AppRadio technology from Pioneer which was launched back in 2011.
Currently, only the 2014 Honda Civic will have the next generation HondaLink system. The 2015 Honda Fit will be the next car to include the system.
Today's announcement has plenty of details. I have included links to the complete press release from Honda along with a few highlights about today's announcement. There is also the whole Google Hangout video you can watch below (26 minutes).

Car mounts are an important component of driving helping you keep your hands on the steering wheel while having a clear view of your phone. Over the last few weeks I have reviewed a couple of smartphone car mounts; the minimalistic Kenu Airframe and the magnetic Wallee M. They both have their own pros and cons.
The mount we are reviewing today is the NEO GRAB Universal Smartphone Holder. I have been using it in my car over the past week.

Pioneer AppRadio 3 (SPH-DA210) prices have fallen to an all-time low today. Although, big box retailers and PioneerElectronics.com list the price at $499, you can buy a brand new AppRadio 3 on Amazon for much less than that retail price.

Big box retailer, Best Buy, has plenty of deals for Black Friday storewide. But when it comes to Car Electronics, there aren't too many deals to choose from.
This year stores will open on Thanksgiving Day at 6 PM across the country. In other words, Black Friday will start on a Thursday, and go on until Sunday. Some other retailers have included the following Monday as a part of the Black Friday routine. Confused?
Anyways, here are the Car Electronics deals available at my local Best Buy in Northern California...
Black Friday brings great deals on most items every year. This year Pioneer Electronics is offering "Free 2-day Shipping" on all products on their website. The free 2nd Day Air Service is available for customers within the continental U.S. only.
Additionally, there are discounts available on products too. Details are below.
EC Touch for AppRadio has been updated to version 3.0.6 today with a few bug fixes and improvements. The app is AppRadio compatible and available only for iOS. Full details about today's update are below.

According to a report on 9to5Mac, the new 2014 Civic will be the first Honda models to feature Apple's "iOS in the Car". But unlike a few other car companies that offer iOS in the Car, Honda could add one other highly sought-after feature.
