Hello,

I couldn’t find that information anywhere - so question is - can we update Android system in our Honda somehow? I noticed that pre-installed version is pretty old (4.2.2?) and i know there is v5.x.x out there.
I’ve read about HondaHack, maybe it’s possible through that?

no, because somebody needs to port all the drivers and honda specific apps/framework. the sourcecode for those arent available for the public.

everything was optimized for android 4.2.2., also because older android versions are more simple and easier to modify.
android 5+ introduced many security restrictions and works differently.

personally i dont care at all which android version is running in a car, as long as i can use music & navigation decently (and Android Auto). more isn't needed during driving.
