Android Auto is an app that mirrors your smartphone on your car’s infotainment screen, assuming the latter is compatible, to make it easy to access certain smartphone apps, functions and services in the car not only in a safe manner but also in a way that they don’t look like blown-up phone apps.
What is Android Auto?
Android Auto is a mobile app developed by Google to mirror features of an Android device, such as a smartphone, on a car’s dashboard information and entertainment head unit.
Once an Android device is paired with the car’s head unit, the system can mirror some apps on the vehicle’s display. Supported apps include GPS mapping and navigation, music playback, SMS, telephone, and Web search. The system supports both touchscreen and button-controlled head units. Hands-free operation through voice commands is available and recommended to reduce driver distraction.
Android Auto is part of the Open Automotive Alliance, a joint effort of 28 automobile manufacturers, with Nvidia as tech supplier, available in 36 countries.
The most common way Android Auto is deployed is via an Android mobile device running the Android Auto app, acting as a master to a vehicle’s dashboard head unit that supports this functionality. Once the user’s Android device is connected to the vehicle, the head unit will serve as an external display for the Android device, presenting supported software in a car-specific user interface provided by the Android Auto app. In Android Auto’s first iterations, the device was required to be connected via USB to the car.
Alternatively, in November 2016, Google added the option to run Android Auto as a regular app on an Android device, i.e., not tethered to a car’s head unit, which allows it to be used on Android-powered head units, or simply on a personal phone or tablet in the vehicle.
In May 2015, Hyundai became the first manufacturer to offer Android Auto support, making it first available in the 2015 Hyundai Sonata. Automobile manufacturers that will offer Android Auto support in their cars include Abarth, Acura, Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, Buick, BMW, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Citroën, Dodge, Ferrari, Fiat, Ford, GMC, Genesis, Holden, Honda, Hyundai, Infiniti, Jaguar Land Rover, Jeep, Kia, Lamborghini, Lexus, Lincoln, Mahindra and Mahindra, Maserati, Maybach, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, RAM, Renault, SEAT, Škoda, SsangYong, Subaru, Suzuki, Tata Motors Cars, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo.
Additionally, aftermarket car-audio systems supporting Android Auto add the technology into host vehicles, including Pioneer, Kenwood, Panasonic, and Sony.
