This release does not have a Play Store Description, so we grabbed one from version 2.6.5734:

Android Auto is your smart driving companion. With a simplified interface, large buttons, and powerful voice actions, Android Auto is designed to make it easier to use apps from your phone while you’re on the road.

• Route to your next destination using Google Maps with real-time GPS navigation and traffic alerts
• Make calls using voice actions and answer incoming calls with just a tap.
• Listen to your favorite media apps including Google Play Music, Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music, Deezer, Slacker, TuneIn, iHeartRadio, Audible. Many more music, radio, news, sports news, audiobook, and podcast apps are also supported.
• Send and receive messages through voice actions using SMS, Hangouts, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Skype, Telegram, WeChat, Kik, Google Allo, and many more messaging apps.

    Should one install this?

    • gumbald

      Try it and tell us!

    • Nuno G.

      Do you have an automobile that can use this? If not… just don’t…

  • James Furse

    so this is the long overdue replacement for the old Car Home app?

  • Artur Oleszczuk

    If you are owner of expensive car with navigation you can use it but if you are just a normal person with normal job and car without navigation you will be disappointed as it’s not launcher but it “transfers” android auto screen from your phone or tablet on car navigation screen. Well… I must find some decent job so I could use it in expensive car… That means never.

    • You can just buy an aftermarket unit right? Or am I confused on how Android Auto works

      • Artur Oleszczuk

        Welcome in Poland where everything costs 2-5 times more compared to any other normal country when we will take average wage as main reference point. For example you need to work 2 months in Germany to buy some decent car that this Android Auto would work with or whole year to buy the same car in Poland (or even more).

        • andytheandroid

          heard of CarPlay for Apple products? Android Auto is Android equivalent, that works with either new cars or selected pioneer headunits.

        • Monika Stępień

          I think Poland will soon disappear, because all young people are leaving this crap country. Poland should be 13th republic of CCCP. Shit life with no perspective.
          Average age of car in Poland 18 years. New cars are bought by foreign corporation and rich people of Capital City Warsaw.
          If you earn 1000 € you’re very rich ;-)

  • Daniel Koman

    you can unlock “developer mode” in this app by clicking the picture 7 times.

  • Artur Oleszczuk

    Also, I’m waiting at XDA to decompile this apk and make it work on “tablet mode” so it would not have to be connected to car to display android auto car. It must work like normal launcher, I don’t see any other use of it if you are just average person, google looses a lot of users locking it only “in car dash navigation replacement home screen” or how to call it. As Nexus7 user, most used “car dash tablet” it must happen !

  • sean

    We will need to wait for a system dump and maybe we can pull the launcher then.

  • Gabriel Leovac

    Works fine on my Unit in the car!

  • Jordan Rawlings

    on my X8700BT it doesn’t work … say’s i need to stop the car so i can do the setting, can someone help ?
