The AcuraLink™ Navi app is designed to provide in-vehicle navigation features mirrored from a smartphone to specially-equipped Acura vehicles. The AcuraLink Navi app is compatible with two specific 2016 - 18 Acura ILX trims: the Premium Edition and Premium with A-Spec Package. The App is compatible with the iPhone 5/5S/5C with iOS 7.x/iOS 8.x/iOS 9.x/iOS 10.x/iOS 11.x, the iPhone 6/6+ with iOS 8.x/iOS 9.x/iOS 10.x/iOS 11.x, the iPhone 6S/6S+/SE with iOS 9.x/10.x/11.x, iPhone 7/7+ with iOS 10.x/11.x, and the iPhone 8/8/X with iOS 11.x. With the new AcuraLink Navigation app, you can have in-dash guided mapping directions with voice instruction over the stereo speakers. Users can receive all the convenience of in-vehicle maps and routing, including continuously updated traffic information for freeways, highways, and major surface streets. Search for points of interest or specific addresses, and easily route to your selected destination. Includes free annual map updates. Download the AcuraLink Navigation app onto your smartphone and stream the entire navigation system into your Acura dashboard display. Use the Multi-Jog controls to interact with the AcuraLink Navigation app. The app is designed to work alongside other AcuraLink apps. Be sure to download them all. Data fees may apply (check legal disclaimer). Note: Works in both standalone mode (for use when not driving) and when connected to specially-equipped Acura vehicles available with the AcuraLink-ready technology. Requires registration with AcuraLink. Requires HDMI cable connector, Apple lightning adapter, and Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® connection. Visit to order the AcuraLink Cable Kit for more details (US only) or for more information. Some services require use of GPS for location-based content. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.



  • Stopped working

    Was ok for a while, now can no longer connect to server, say no service. Can't see any way to fix, I am going to Acura customer relations to see if they know the status.
  • DONT BUY!!!!

    This does not work. You are going to waste $60 Piece of ****
  • It was over before it started

    Some people are lucky to have it work for a bit before crashing. I never got the luxury. I paid the money and downloaded it and wouldn't ever connect. Kept saying "can't connect" or "please download the app." I talk to the service people and they say my iPhone 6 Plus with Verizon isn't compatible. Apparently it's compatible with Bluetooth and everything else, but not that. Waste of $60 plus the cables.

    Agree with other reviews. How can you charge someone $60 for an app and not ensure it works properly or when you see these reviews not make sure you fix it? How do we get a refund?

    I bought this App back in April 2015. It's been working up until now. It keeps telling me "unable to connect to server, try again" and there is no update to fix this problem.
  • App no longer connects...

    By WorthlessAppReviewed.
    The app no longer connects to the servers, making it impossible to 'navigate' anywhere. This app was marginal to begin with, but it's now completely unusable.
  • Agree with other reviewers, new update ruined app

    By g$tone
    I downloaded this app in 2016 and it worked quite well. Then I got the new update last month and it no longer works at all. Pretty unsatisfying for the most expensive app I ever bought. Doubt I will ever purchase another Acura.
  • Acura you should be ashamed of yourself

    By NDRassas
    I leased an 2017 ILX premium package a month ago and was told by the dealer if I download the app that will which cost me $60 and buy the cable cost $80 I would be able to transfer the Navi screen from the app form my iPhone onto the screen of the vehicle. That is the worst app I ever encountered would work 1% of the time and 99% of the other time either tell me to download the app which has already been downloaded or to plug in your HDMI cable which is that is also plugged in. I think you guys have a major issue with this app and in need of a definite and immediate updates. Or I would definitely take this to the media nationwide about this situation and Acura. I can't believe Acura does not offer Apple play or android auto on all Acura but yet you offer it on a Honda Civic go figure. It would be great if I could get a response from someone. By Nabil Rassas

    I purchased the app with the car in 2015 n now it doesn't work anymore it keeps on saying no service or can't load, there's no updates for the app and it looks like other people have the same problem, is there a way to fix the app?
  • App stopped working

    By Joey Avino
    I was using the app for a few months and it worked perfectly. Suddenly it stopped working. The map continues to say "map not ready" and "no service." I don't know how to fix it or if it's a glitch in the app. Location services are on for the app, as well.
