Navigation and HandsFreeLink

Multi-Info Display (MID)

  • The MID is standard equipment.
  • It is a backlit LED screen with its push-button controls located on the right side of the instrument cluster.
  • The MID is the interface for odometer/trip odometer, outside temperature, trip computer, custom memory settings, HandsFreeLink, Maintenance Minder, and vehicle warnings.
  • The MID shows the custom settings of many electronic features in the TL, including automatic door locking/unlocking, door unlock selection, keyless acknowledgement feedback, security re-lock timer, headlight auto-off timer and interior light dimming timer.
  • To make it easy to track warnings (such as "Check fuel cap," or Maintenance Minder warnings) displayed on the MID, a memory feature lets you scroll through previous warnings for review.

HandsFreeLink

  • The HandsFreeLink system is standard equipment and is designed to work with Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones with Hands-Free capabilities (sold separately) as well as being compatible with Bluetooth phones having the Hands Free Profile (HFP).
  • HandsFreeLink allows the driver to send or receive calls without taking his or her hands from the steering wheel by using steering wheel mounted controls and voice commands.
  • When a call comes in, the number of the incoming caller is displayed on the Multi-Info Display (MID). The phone ring tone is also played over the audio system. If the driver chooses to answer the call, a press of the steering wheel-mounted "Talk" button mutes the audio system and the incoming caller is heard over the audio system speakers.
  • Algorithms built into the HandsFreeLink system cancel "echo effect" and reduce background noise to improve the transmission quality of the driver's speech.
  • The driver also can store up to 50 frequently called numbers with voice tags in the system's memory.
  • Up to six different compatible mobile phones can be paired with the HandsFreeLink system.

Acura Navigation System with Voice Recognition

  • The Acura Navigation System is optional equipment and uses an 8-inch screen, which is the largest ever offered in an Acura, and is the same size as that used in the TSX.
  • In addition to recognizing 7 million points of interest, the system contains expanded voice recognition capabilities (293 commands total) and has fast route calculation and search speed 2 times faster that the previous TL.
  • Split-screen mode features a simultaneous "map view" and selective "3-D" route visualization.
  • Business and recreation directory of virtually the entire continental United States complete with phone numbers
  • Directory categories include restaurants (searchable by type of cuisine), lodging, shopping, airports, hospitals, recreation areas and much more
  • Audio system automatically mutes for turn-by-turn voice guidance in either male or female voice (which can be turned off at any time)
  • User selectable Day/Night screen modes
  • Destination memory recalls current trip addresses, previous destinations and user address books
  • Voice Recognition operates key audio and climate control functions
  • Make calls to on-screen points of interest with HandsFreeLink
  • If the antenna (located on the rear parcel shelf) is blocked by a tunnel, tall building or parking garage, an internal gyroscopic system and a speed sensor track the location of the vehicle to keep the mapping information current and reliable until satellite reception is restored.
