Infuriatingly lacks Waze but is pretty nice in my 2017 Honda Civic EX using a Motorola Droid Turbo. This meant that I got navigation on the car's display and dash without having to get the fancier model of car. I use it during my commutes and road trips and it does enough for me to be quite happy. I admit that I used to look at my phone too much on the car so I do really appreciate the feature that it takes over your phone display and helps you make good choices. Ideas for improvements: make menus a bit more intuitive, add Waze for maps, reporting, and routing
I have AA in my Ford Edge and had the Samsung Note 5. It all worked just fine with Google Assistant. I upgraded to Samsung S8+ and Google Assistant wants me to tap Notifications then I can use GA while driving. What notification? AA takes over the screen and there are no notifications. I went into Notifications and enables everything. Still doesn't work. Any help?
It's a simple interface, but it works. With an Android Auto head unit that I can talk to, it handles basically everything I need, or at least the things I should do while driving. The only things I wish I could do was Waze (coming soon), and have better control over my music collection in the Play Music app. I would like to be able to browse my music when at a stop. It would be nice if the voice recognition could tell the difference between "song" and "album".
Google maps we have the ability to submit multiple destinations by adding "stops". We also have the ability to drag them up an down to reorganize the stops to better stream line the trip. However I have not found a way to reorganize the stops on Android Autos google maps on the car display. An due to this reason I find that I can not use android auto till this feature is supported an continue to just use basic google maps on my phone an mount. I would really like to use android auto. Please allow us to reorganize the stops.
Totally awesome. Navigation with Google maps is great! I took off one star because you can't use Waze nav as of the time of this writing. Music is awesome and I use Spotify to replace that expensive satellite radio subscription. After having this capability built into my 16 Hyundai I can tell you that I would never buy another vehicle unless it supported Android Auto. Once Google adds more features (like support for Waze) this will be a five star app.
Use it whenever I'm the car. I like the hands free message reading and reply. The biggest issue is that if you have Bluetooth set for audio profile, messages will always try to go to the car audio system. That's fine when I'm listening to music from my phone, but I don't always have music playing, or have music from another source. In that case, the hands free messaging is not usable. Google maps has the option to choose between sending messages always to the phone speaker, or use the current audio profile, i.e. Bluetooth. If this app had that option, if give it a five.
