The following article about the Honda Odyssey Tech is presented by your Utah Honda Dealers.

A minivan probably doesn’t seem like the kind of thing that would be brimming with tech. But the new Honda Odyssey may make you reconsider. With features from onboard WiFi to wireless charging, the Odyssey might just take the top of the list for techies who are looking to transport a large family. Here are 7 cool tech features you’ll find in the new Honda Odyssey.

1. Vehicle WiFi

Who hasn’t taken a road trip where when the song or podcast is just getting to the good part and the signal dies? The onboard Odyssey WiFi makes sure this never happens for anything streaming in the car or directly to any of the passengers in the van. And with the Apple CarPlay and the Android Auto, you shouldn’t have any problems getting connected.

2. USB Ports

3. Wireless Charging

4. Advanced Rear Entertainment System

Plus, with CabinTalk In-Car PA System, you can pause most in-car media to talk with all the passengers right in their headphone covered ears with just the touch of a button.

5. Heated and Ventilated Front Seats
