Until a few years ago, cars were not compatible with our phones beyond few connections via third-party hands-free devices via Bluetooth. Over time, solutions such as Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, with the objective of integrate our mobiles within the vehicle itself, with personalized interfaces that allow us to control several of its sections.

Specifically, Android Auto is available for more than 400 car models, so it is appropriate to comment which are these compatible models, as well as everything you need to know about Android Auto.


What is Android Auto

  Android Auto

Android Auto is Google’s solution to integrate our Android device with our compatible vehicle. It has been running since 2014, and has a fairly simple and intuitive interface, which is combined with voice actions that minimize the driver’s physical contact with the vehicle’s own panel.

This solution provides us with information about the notifications we receive, allows us to use Google Maps, play our music, and respond to messages using our voice. The main objective is to be able to interact with our phone without having to touch it, minimizing distractions behind the wheel.

Android Auto can be used from the phone itself through its application, although to get the most out of it it is recommended to connect it to the vehicle

To use Android Auto you need a compatible vehicle or device (Alpine, Pioneer or Sony have compatible radios), as well as having an Android device with version 5.0 Lollipop and higher. Having this compatibility in the vehicle, you only need to download the Android Auto app and start using it.

When making the connection, we can do it wirelessly or via USB cable connect your mobile to the car. Android Auto works both in the interface of our mobile, as well as adapting to the panel of our car.
