Icon5 Bluetooth outdated in 2011 Insight

I've recently purchased a 2011 Insight thinking it came with the ability to do voice commands and stream music via Bluetooth. It does, but only in older model phones. We both have newer model Galaxy phones. I believe I read somewhere that the bluetooth in the car will only pair with up to an S5.

Is there a way to overcome the outdated Bluetooth?

Welcome to the world of new age infotainment systems where the technology is obsolete before the last payment is made. Aren't things grand?

Do you know if there are any updates through Honda or elsewhere?

Call Honda and ask? I don't think they had firmware updates just map updates for the navigation.

However, those systems are running Windows CE. Might be some hacks out there to update and add functionality.
