That's too wide open of a question. The 2011 CR-V did have phone bluetooth integration but you had to get the EX-L trim so just asking "what models" isn't accurate enough. Since you had an '11 vehicle, will you get something older or newer ? You want another CR-V or small SUV ? Narrow down what people should advise you on....


thinking of getting another small SUV style. A sub forester or outback . they seem to be in my price range in the 2009 to 2011 models.

Ok. I admit it, I'm an old fogey. Just what is Apple Auto Play and Android Auto Play? What's their purpose. I really don't know.

It's Apple CarPlay and Android Auto; they essentially mirror your phone's apps on the cars telematics screen. With a few exceptions(like BMW) your phone needs to be plugged in to a USB port in the car for either feature to work. On most cars it's a nice feature to have, although on some cars I prefer the factory navigation system.

Ehhh, my 2008 G35 has all that same stuff (except only 2 seat memory positions). Have no trouble connecting any devices from an iPhone 8, iPhone X?, or Galaxy S10.

My 2001 M5 had 3-position memory, navigation, heated seats, TPMS, Climate Control, remote ventilation, Auto up/down on all windows, DSC, auto-levelling HID's, F/R parking sensors, auto wipers and probably a few other things I'm missing, but it amusingly didn't have Bluetooth, which would have been about 2 years old at the time. BMW had their own proprietary phone interface, so you had to buy a specific phone if you wanted hands-free LOL

I don't understand those options--my seats get heated every time I sit in them and they always remember where I last put them. shrug

My wife is REALLY short, so it's nice to have memory seating, as we have very different settings.

Heh, I was being silly.

I got lucky and my wife is my height, actually a smidge taller than me now. We generally don't adjust each other's seats; at most it's one click and done. When the kids start driving it could be different... one is 5" shorter and the other is apt to be 4" taller. Then again they won't be allowed to drive our nice cars. smile

Those heated seats come in very handy during the cold weather. My back is a mess and it’s great to get some warmth back there.

I never had any of this stuff before but now I’m spoiled.

My 2008 Escape did not have BT but my 2010 does have Bluetooth for both streaming audio and talking. I ended up replacing literally every component of the factory stereo anyway...

Yeah, I did like the heated seats in my VW. I'd turn 'em on in October and turn them off in May... With 5 settings I would get in and set to 5 (flamethrower) so as to heat up quickly, then set back down to 2 or 3, depending on my wants. But never off... Couple of times I turned them on after a nice long hike and it sure did feel good!

I've actually devolved in my vehicle options. I had a car with mpg, fun, manual trans, leather, sunroof, auto up/down, heated mirrors. Now I have none of that!

Toyota made Bluetooth a standard feature on the 2nd gen Prius beyond the base model - it was just handsfree calling.

Bluetooth should be standard fare in most cars now with the base infotainment, and a cheap upgrade in a base car if an aftermarket radio can be installed.

Or just pair a set of Bluetooth ear pieces with the phone and go that route.
