Installing .APK's via USB in 9th gen Accord

Has anyone had any success with installing an .APK file from a USB stick in the 16 Accords? I don't know if Honda has this locked down to certain approved apps. It finds the files on the USB drive and you are able to actually get the install prompt to show. The install button darkens and nothing really happens. No message that it cannot install or any progress bar. I was looking in the settings to see if there was an option to install from an unknown source but did not see anything. Any idea? Thanks!

Doesn't Android Auto work off the phone? So the apps are installed on your phone and the ones that are compatible with carplay are displayed on the screen?

Maybe I'm wrong...

The built in system is based on android so they would be apk's the problem is there aren't any that I know of that have been written to work on our systems base install.

Yeah not sure why it would not work but APK files usually need to get permission to be installed, at least on a phone or tablet. In the area where the web browser is located under apps there is an install from USB option. That is where tried. This could be only for the Honda dealers maybe to update the Android version or any other changes.

XDA forum would be your best option for that answer. There has to be a few guys over there that have 9th gen accords.

Good thought! How many there in XDA have the 16 Accord is the question? 9th gen goes back to 2013. I don't recall an area in the settings in the 13-15 models that has an area to install .APK's. Funny thing is I'm in my 40s and there are many younger in their 20s you'd think would have this down by now..lol
Eventually an answer will be available.

It's most likely locked down and they've disabled sideloading apks.

Yeah, probably so. It's a tease for them to have install apps from USB there..lol

Went from 13 Accord Coupe V6 Tiger Eye Pearl to
16 Accord Coupe V6 Orchid White Pearl. The difference is night and day. Well, the colors are.

Any new update on this? I've been trying myself and haven't figured it out yet. The builtin android tablet has multiple app pages, app and widget tabs. I've been trying to get Waze.apk

No other information on this yet. It is possible it may be for something in the future. It does not make sense to have an install .apk option and it doesn't work. It is possible this access is for the dealer to upgrade the stystem.

There's tons of challenges involved with rooting and unlocking an Android Auto device. They're gonna be locked down tight, including the bootloader. I don't see it happening for an OEM mfr's head unit. Maybe for a Pioneer or similar unit.

I know this isn't helpful to the question, but I think the USB install app is mainly for nav and gracenote updates. And as mentioned, other USB updates to software the dealership may provide similar to the head unit update that was done on earlier 9th gens to fix HFL issues.
