This app makes a good substitute for android auto/carplay on headunits with mirror link capabilities. It is a bit buggy when messing around with the settings, but works well after set up the way you want. The app crashes, mainly in navigation, if I don't exit the app after changing settings, such as changing default navigation app. Using the default automate nav app crashes the app always and does not function. Any setting changes don't apply until the app is exited and restarted.

The app it's self is great with many awesome features, however there are some bugs that need addressing. When the charger "disconnects" or the power turns off the app doesn't seem to recognize it some times which causes the screen to remain on and the music to continue playing. The reverse is true for when the charger connects or power is present therefore settings like start or launch at charger connects do not function. Also, in the navigation the icon that represents the vehicle always moves to the middle of the screen when traveling at highway speeds. If that icon could stay in the bottom of the screen that would be most helpful

I like the app. I have a Pixel 3 and my old car dock wasn't showing inbound and outbound calls in progress. Seems to be a bug with the Car Mode. This seems to be a good alternative. One thing though, I seem to be getting a force close message for the Pixel launcher when using this car dock. Not sure why.
