I would doubt any info would be provided w/o a subscription. My car was purchased new w/a trial period before I was a subscriber so can't confirm.
The HondaLink App loses connection for me somewhat regularly. Possibly because I don't use it often... but I have to re-pair it to the car to get data out of it. You definitely do not have to have a subscription to get the basics.

... You definitely do not have to have a subscription to get the basics.
(y) Checked HondaLink online and it appears "the basics" are the following....

Vehicle Guides - Detailed vehicle information is easily accessible with the digital owner's manual and guides.

Service Appointments - Schedule your next service appointment with a Honda-certified dealership.

Recall Notifications - Receive important alerts if your vehicle is involved in a recall.

Roadside Assistance - Access 24-hour roadside service, including jump starts, lockout assistance, and more.

Dashboard - View up-to-date mileage, fuel level, and oil life readings for your vehicle.

Vehicle Notifications - Receive alerts when a warning light comes on or if it’s time to schedule maintenance.

Send Destination - Search for destinations on your phone and instantly beam turn-by-turn directions to your navigation system.

Favorites - Save your favorite destinations to the app and easily send them to your vehicle.

Since I've always opted for the subscription for the other/advanced features I never knew what the basics were.

As I previously stated I've always had a subscription so I couldn't/can't confirm what features were/are available w/o one.... the items I had listed where items that were listed before the "pay for" features at HondaLink so I was assuming those were the "basic" features @herotheday was referring too.

Not to make a fuss, but this "honda tech" provided incorrect info. There may be confusion on the part of the tech between "vehicle registration" with the app, and "subscription to" the app. Further, the advanced features are only available on a limited number of models. My experience pertains to 2020 models.

What are the for-pay features? I'm not aware of any that would be relevant to my Sport 2.0T 6MT, but I'm curious.
As I understand the paid subscription levels of HondaLink are only available on the Touring Trim. I have the subscription to the "Remote" HondaLink so I can remote start my car from my phone without having to be within whatever distance.

Outline of the features should be here HondaLink: Connectivity for Smart Phones and Honda Vehicles
