Android users will soon get more functionality from Honda’s Africa Twin. Honda has announced it will integrate Android Auto with 2020 and newer Africa Twin models, giving riders with Android smartphones complete compatibility with the adventure machine.

Editor’s note: We test rode Big Red’s latest adventure touring rig during the 2020 Honda Africa Twin Adventure Sport ES DCT MC Commute Review and 2020 Honda Africa Twin Adventure Sport ES DCT Review articles and videos.

The update allows Android users with the Android Auto app installed to instantly connect to the motorcycle. Once connected, they can access media, phone calls, and messaging at no additional cost. Riders will need a Bluetooth headset to utilize the various features, but once connected will be able to use voice commands via Google Assistant on the app to control most major functions.
