Using the AHA App
To enjoy all of the Honda Link AHA app features start by logging into the HondaLink apps, then log into the AHA app and open it on the phone before connecting it to the vehicle. Tap add stations or featured stations. At this point you’ll see a list of station categories; browse the different categories and press the plus icon to add a station to your station’s list. You can add up to 35 station presets. Note that Aha stations must be set on the phone before they can be viewed on the vehicle’s touchscreen. Once you see your presets, connect your phone to the vehicle. Start at the main screen and touch the Audio icon; then Source; then Aha. At this point, you’ll see your list of stations. HondaLink AHA displays featured stations to help customers find rich content. From the Aha menu, select the feature stab to experience these stations.
