    A convenient way to safely get things done while you drive

    • Unique idea
    • Well-designed user interface
    • Hands-free replying
    • Twitchy alerts
    • No zoom function
    • Missing the best parts

    "Freedom Through Hands Free"


    AutoMate looks to bring the form and functionality needed for your ride. Rather than have to use your hands, let AutoMate bring commonly used services to you, through the power of voice. With a number of voice-activated functions, your ride will be smooth and safe.


    It's a unique concept with plenty of potential. The user interface is designed well with easily navigable menus and clear options and buttons. Hands free replying is very useful for the chatty driver. It loads up quickly and seems to perform well.


    The camera alerts seem to be a little twitchy, going off when they shouldn't. The street names on the map should be a bit larger and easier to read. Add zoom to the map to fix this. Some of the best features are locked up in the premium version.

    This works well in my Android head unit. I switched to tiles for menus to use up the space better than the default lists. Waiting for Spotify to catch up and support a car mode. Android Auto refuses to start as it does not like something about the head unit environment.

    How do I uninstall? I would have liked it if it wasn't stuck on my phone.

    It's too cumbersome to use while driving which defeats the purpose of it. It takes too many steps to have it perform certain tasks. Also, the Speedometer doesn't seem to be as accurate on my Google Pixel XL as the one in Drive Mode.

    Need to set a press and hold delay on the quick return icon so it doesn't move until you've held it a sec. When you're driving and trying to use it, it just want to move like you're repositioning it. Very annoying.

    More reliable than Android Auto, and I don't get that annoying Bluetooth audio stutter that plagued AA. Paid for full version. So far very good. Most of the time is seamless, sometimes takes a few more presses of icons to get the list view, occasionally will get stuck in a loop of start up automatically then shutdown and won't force stop requiring phone restart . Works great with Audible.
