Android Auto offers a variety of ways to bring you the best Android experience to our car. On the one hand we have the alternative valid for the entire world, while on the other hand if you have a specific car, you can connect your device to the screen of the car with a USB cable.
One of the latest developments of Google is the wireless mode for Android Auto. This mode uses the technology of Wifi Direct to connect to the car without the need of a cable. This mode already begins to be available in Spain.
The wireless mode of Android Auto comes to Spain
When Google introduced the wireless mode of Android Auto, not had a great reception. This mode was available only for some models of Pixel and Nexus only in certain countries. With the passage of months has increased the list of countries, also compatible mobile.
Today, this mode is compatible with Google mobile and Samsung.
As stated in XDA Developers, the support of this functionality is already in 34 countries, 16 more than there were before. In the list of new additions includes Spain, so if you have a compatible car with Android Auto you’ll be able to enjoy this mode.
Keep in mind you will still need a USB cable of high quality for the initial setup, but it will not be necessary to keep such a cable in the car (although you probably want to keep having to load the mobile).

As requirements extra are required to have the Android app Auto-updated at least to version USB and a cable of high quality for the initial configuration. To know any other requirement or the updated list of devices I suggest going to the official support site of Google.
