Set up Honda CR-V Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and program Radio Presets in Santa Cruz, California

We've all been there -- you just purchased a new vehicle, you get behind the wheel, ready to embark on a road trip to Salinas CA, but wait -- you forgot how to operate all this new technology! And with the new 2016 Honda CR-V, there's plenty of new tech in a fun-to-drive package.

Let's learn together how to set up Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and how to program Radio Presets.

Bluetooth HandsFreeLink lets you place and receive phone calls through your CR-V's audio system while keeping your eyes on the road and your hands safely on the wheel -- and pairing your phone with your new CR-V couldn't be easier.

Make sure Bluetooth is enabled on your phone, then select Settings and then Phone from the Home Screen on your vehicle's touchscreen. Choose Bluetooth Device List, then Add Bluetooth Device. Select your device once it appears on the list. You are now connected to HandsFreeLink!

You also have the option to turn on HondaLink Assist, which enables emergency collision notification, as well as Phone Synchronization, which automatically imports your phone book and call history.

Watch the above video for more information and different features of Bluetooth HandsFreeLink.

Back in the day, there were no touchscreens when it came to your vehicle's radio system, so setting your Radio Presets wasn't the easiest thing in the world. But it's a piece of cake with your new Honda CR-V, which can store up to 12 stations!

To set your favorite radio stations, select Audio from the Home Menu on your Display Audio Touchscreen, tune to your desired station and choose the preset number where you would like it stored. Press and hold the number until you hear the system beep. To program additional preset stations, just repeat this process. For vehicles equipped with SiriusXM Radio, simply follow the same steps.

Watch the above video for more information on setting radio presets.
