No journey in your Honda Ridgeline would be complete without the right soundtrack. The Ridgeline gives you a multitude of options for audio entertainment and many ways to stay connected on the go.

Visual Audio Management: On the RT, Sport, and RTL models, you can manage your audio with ease with the 5-inch color LCD display screen, an 8-inch touchscreen with customizable feature settings on the RTL-T model and above.

Powerful Output: The RT, Sport, and RTL trims come with a 200-watt audio system with seven speakers, including a subwoofer. A 225-watt audio system is available on the RTL-T to boost your entertainment. For audiophiles looking for high-quality audio, a 540-watt Premium Audio System with eight speakers, including subwoofer, comes with the RTL-E and Black Edition trim options. With the RTL-E and Black Edition, you even get an external truck bed audio system so you can enjoy your tunes while grilling out or at the jobsite.

Audio Sources: Enjoy music and talk shows with a radio data system that beams information about what you’re listening to right to the display screen in the dash. Passengers can connect their devices to the audio system via the auxiliary input jack, Bluetooth streaming audio, or the 1.0-amp USB audio interface port in the center console, a 1.5-amp smartphone/audio interface in the RTL-T and above models. Also in the RTL-T trim and above, drivers and passengers can connect their smartphone through the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functions, as well as control apps from the touchscreen. They can even enjoy SiriusXM Satellite Radio, HD Radio, and popular streaming service Pandora.

Stay Connected: Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, standard on all Honda Ridgeline models, allows you to answer and make phone calls through your paired device using just your voice, and with HondaLink on the RTL-T model and above, you can get vehicle guides, receive parking reminders and recall notifications, schedule service appointments, and get roadside assistance with your compatible smartphone. You can even receive and respond to texts via the display screen with the SMS text message function. Plus, your passengers can keep devices charged with the two 2.5-amp charging ports located in the second row.

Advanced Navigation: Never get lost with the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with voice recognition and real-time road conditions with Honda HD Digital Traffic.

The multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines, standard on all models, allows you to see what’s directly behind your Ridgeline when navigating out of tight spots. Dynamic guidelines, included on the RTL-T and above trims, change with the environment to show you the safest path.

Honda Ridgeline Lane Keeping Assist

Virtual Co-Pilot: Driver-assist technology abounds in the Ridgeline RTL-E and Black Edition with the lane keeping assist system, which helps you keep your lane position when drifting is detected without an accompanying turn signal being activated. The blind spot information system alerts you when approaching vehicles are detected so you can change lanes with confidence. Adaptive cruise control adjusts your set speed when a vehicle is detected in front of the Ridgeline.
