It's decent. Would appreciate if I could access all my music via play music and not just play lists. Also lately with the latest updated version of play music I get an error via my car dash that I am unable to access my music. However on the phone the android auto play music works. Also if I downgrade play music to stock it works fine on the car dash again. Google assistant works perfectly on the car.
I really, really want to give this 5. The phone-only interface is a stroke of genius and really helps out those of us who don't have a late-model car. Simple-touch access makes it safe to use audio/phone functions along with nav, and it's something everyone should try! But... Hangouts Dialer is not available for calls, Waze isn't available for nav, and part of the audio interface is just TOO simplified. I definitely recommend, but it could use improvement.
I use this with my Synch 3. The navigation is much easier to use and more accurate. I'd give the navigation and text messaging 5 stars. But I HATE the way it completely takes over my Synch screen. I can't see the outside temperature, what satellite station I'm on or any of the Synch 3 controls. Google needs to change their App so the users still have access to Synch 3 controls and information.
Great app to keep drivers eyes on the road, WHERE THEY BELONG. I like the simplicity. Only used it for a short period of time but pretty good for now. Navigation works, calls work, texts work and that is all I need. I like the "OK Google" feature but it doesn't always work and I don't know why. I don't use my phone while driving so I don't try to figure it out. I would say it works 90% of the time. Only complaint.
Still has a long way to go. The UI is mild infuriating sometimes. I get the attempt to reduce people being distracted while driving, but there has to be a better way. I find myself being MORE DISTRACTED because of the overly complicated song selection. I would spend much less time distracted if I could quickly and accurately select a song. I have experienced plenty of freeze ups as well, with a Nexus 6P and 2017 Chevy Volt. Certainly shows a ton of promise, but still needs lots of work. Really wish they would allow non-google apps in the media section. Apple music would be killer. Also, Google, please keep in mind that the driver is not always the one controlling the screen. It is extremely annoying that my passenger is so limited in what they can actually do with such a powerful device and interface. Please keep working and make the product better!
A great tool, but it has problems. Namely, it can be fussy during initialization when you first plug in the cable. Also, after making a phone call, Google Play Music will stop working until you restart the phone. Finally, if I have music and maps running and I get a phone call, the screen will freeze until I restart the vehicle (2017 Ford F-150 XL w/ Sync 3).
