    Android Auto's review

    Published: 2017-03-22, by .

    Android Auto brings a breadth of options to connect to your vehicle

    • Intuitive UI with large buttons
    • Sleek buttons
    • Incredibly easy to pick-up and use
    • Requires Android 5.0 and above
    • Doesn't work with every car screen

    "Rock Android in your car"


    Made for those who love listening to their favorite tunes while driving, but also have to use their smartphone, Android Auto makes it simple to get started. Simply connect your device into a compatible display, then, after Android Auto detects the app, get started. Once connected, Android Auto turns your smartphone into a second display, allowing you or your passenger to select what to do. This app brings classic Google features, like navigating with Google Maps, like TomTom, as well as the ability to listen to podcasts, music from your playlist, and more. Just connect and get started.


    What I truly enjoyed about Android Auto was how large and intuitive the buttons were, as this app truly feels optimized around the driving experience, with a great-looking UI, sleek buttons, and solid controls.


    Don’t expect, however, Android Auto to work with every car screen, as you will have to check the manual to see if it works. You’ll also need Android 5.0 or above installed, as this app won’t run on older devices running Jellybean and under.

    Great user interface for car. I use it to play music and use Google maps. Works very well for me. Simplified controls and limited functions helps keep me safe while driving.

    When you are listening to Pandora there is no shuffle option for your stations unless you unplug it and go to Pandora and hit shuffle. but when you change the station to something else there is no way to back to shuffle.

    Still can't scroll more than a few screens even when parked.

    Works well with the Pixel XL. Responsive to voice commands as well as physical controls.

    Android Auto and the Pioneer AVH-4200NEX in my 2006 VW Jetta TDI make me want to keep this car another 10 years! Totally brought it up to date with tech features without a new car payment. Waiting patiently for Waze integration!
