Android Auto

Android Auto is a simpler way to use your phone in the car. Whether on your phone screen or on your car display, Android Auto was designed with safety in mind. With larger touch targets, a simplified interface, and easy-to-use voice actions, it’s designed to minimize distraction so you can stay focused on the road.

Android Auto automatically brings you useful information – like suggested destinations, upcoming appointments, and weather conditions – all organized into simple cards that appear just when they’re needed.

 

SETUP:

1st: To use Android Auto on your phone screen, you’ll need an Android phone running 5.0 (Lollipop) or higher and the Android Auto app

2nd: Install the app on your device

3rd: Open the Android Auto app and follow the prompts it will download any necessary apps such as google maps and google play music

4th: Connect your device you Android Auto compatible vehicle (see list below)

5th: Follow Onscreen prompts

*Note vehicle must be in park not moving

Now you are all set let us see what we can use Android Auto for.

 

Maps


Let Google Maps lead the way. It’s easy to get where you’re going with free voice-guided navigation, live traffic information, lane guidance, and more.

The 1st icon on the lower left is to access google maps where you can search locations, poi, gas stations, and navigate to them just as you would from your phone.

Music


With on-demand access to 40 million songs, Google Play Music allows you to stream endless music on the road (and anywhere else you want to listen).

This is the 4th icon on the bottom and this allows you to listen to music on your device or stream music from apps like Spotify, Google Play Music, Pandora, and others.

Communication


Make calls or send messages using just your voice. Auto-reply makes it easy to stay focused on the road.

2nd icon on the bottom allowing you to view call history and make and receive calls.

Voice actions


Just say ‘OK, Google’ to access hundreds of available voice commands, making it easy to find your next destination, change the music, or reply to a message while staying focused on the road.

This is a feature that you can turn on through the settings so it’s always active and saying “Ok Google” you can use hundreds of voice commands to play music, check the weather, set reminders, navigate to locations and more.

Many manufacturers see the benefit having a driver keep their eyes more on the road than on a phone so they are jumping on board with having the necessary hardware and software for Android Auto to run in their vehicles. Below is a list of Vehicles that have Android Auto available or coming soon.
