Con man at its best.I bought a 2016 Pilot on Oct 31 2016. Mid-October, in an early part of the sales discussion, I expressed my willingness to wait for a 2017 model since I knew Apple CarPlay was expected in that model. My sales person told me Apple CarPlay will be available as an upgrade for 2016 Pilots ... but "we don't know when" ... And said they will update 2016 Pilot owners for free. He would not formally put it in the sales documents since he said Honda corporate was "funny about those things", but i asked them to add it to an email describing the cars features and details. The Honda Dealership send the following in an email to me:
"As soon as the update becomes available for apple car play we will invite you and all the 2016 pilot owners in to Dick Hannah Honda to have the program downloaded free of charge we do not know when it will be available but when it is available we will make sure to give you a call "
