I think the Twitter announcement might hold a clue. It says it will change your "Social Life Forever". Perhaps the SL is "Social Life" perhaps "Social Life Friendly"?? Not sure what image is next to the SLF.
I hope Honda isn't amping up the in car infotainment too much as distracted driving is an increasing problem.

Jeff - was this a part of the first drive stuff...?

Can you make any sort of comment at all?

No, it wasn't. And that badge looks like they just cobbled something together on a fancy printer and slapped it on the arse for a quick photo. I almost feel like this is some sort of buildup to an elaborate April Fool's joke or something.

Oh Jesus. My only defense is that I'm a stay at home dad with a 14 month old and my wife is in residency so days of the week/month/year mean very little to us and holidays/weekends basically don't exist anymore.

Looks like a graphic representation of some kind of port? A rolling wi-fi hot-spot?

I'm hoping it's just a plug for a cigarette lighter...

Super Laser Flame; it detects the cig in your mouth and remotely lights it automatically. ZAP!

SLF=Social Life Forever? Maybe a communication box between Honda drivers? There was some talk about this from Honda a while back.

well at the HR-V event Honda gave the attendees some cheesy little selfie sticks and wanted everybody to post selfies during the event from various spots. could SLF be tied to "selfie"? I don't know, but to me, given the date and the way this is being teed up, it feels like they're maybe having fun with April Fool's day.

Well, my first post speculated on "Social Life Friendly". But perhaps the symbol is meant to be a camera lens? The Tweet proclaims to "have drivers everywhere smiling" perhaps they installed a camera in the rear view mirror to capture "Selfies" as you drive. Ugh, I hope I'm wrong.

Your mobile phone can ask your HR-V where the heck it is. The Super Locator Feature will send you a picture of where it is parked.

Not that I have any insider info that you do not, but I do believe you are correct. Real or fake, I imagine this will have a selfie camera somewhere in car, probably in the front dome light cluster.

My guess when I first saw it was that SLF meant "selfie" for April Fool's day.

They say that drivers everywhere will be smiling...perhaps for their selfie?

On HR-V FB page it says, "Your camera phone will soon become a thing of the past. Stay tuned for a special announcement from Honda tomorrow."

Ay!

If it works with the Adaptive Cruise Kontrol, Forward Kollision Warning, Lane Change Warning, etc...
