How to Pair a Phone to the Acura RDX Bluetooth System

Acura RDX

The Acura RDX is equipped with Bluetooth® technology that enables a new level of connectivity for you. Hands-free phone calls and texting, plus streaming all your favorite music are yours with the 2017 RDX. No overwhelming or overcomplicated information overload here! The Acura RDX Bluetooth system is quick to set up, easy to learn, and fun to use.

RDX Bluetooth Capabilities

Bluetooth integration via the HandsFreeLink™ is standard on every RDX, which means your eyes will always stay on the road and your hands on the wheel. You are free to talk on the phone, read and respond to text and email messages, and play the music you want to hear without reaching for your device. The available Technology Package adds bilingual voice recognition for the Acura Navigation System, so you can ask for directions in multiple languages. Siri Eyes Free® compatibility also lets you access Siri on your Apple iPhone via the Bluetooth connection.
