Works mostly consistently. Sometimes volume doesn't return to normal after receiving a notification (text messages), but it's fixed by turning off the radio and then back on. Initial load up is kind of slow. Sometimes I have to re-plug my device several times before connection is confirmed. When it works correctly, it's pretty nice. Google Play music integration is excellent. Waze/Google Maps works well. AA comes standard on my 2017 Subaru Impreza Sport.
I like that I can use my 3rd party navigation app, and hands free talk & text works well. 4 stars for not being able to find a way to read media files off the memory card. If there is a way, it isn't obvious to me, and I consider myself fairly tech-savvy. Spotify and Pandora work fine, but sometimes I just want to hear music saved on my phone without the worry of needing an aux cable.
You need a car with Android Auto compatibility to really appreciate it. In my case Bluetooth works well, but is quite annoying to turn on the car when reading something, and then have Android Auto interrupt. A car that supports Auto will let me plug it in when I'm ready, and get better audio as well. Also some apps don't support Android Auto over Bluetooth only, like Waze, which is a bummer. But overall this is great!
Loved it until I upgraded to Android 8 Oreo. Have a Nexus 6P with a Ford F150 with Sync 3. AA worked great before Oreo, now nothing happens when I plug in USB. Google replied and have some tips and none worked. USB port perked and was charging but data transfer or USB options did not work. Went into developer options and turned on USB Debugging and all works again. Fixed it on my own, had to turn on USB Debugging in Developer mode
Works great with the 2017 Honda Civic dashboard display. I'm very happy with it. One drawback - the Music Artist list doesn't show automatically like iTunes Apple Play. Although, you can manually build your Artists list with play lists. Once set up - Android Auto is really nice and words well with my Honda.
Works great with my Kenwood DDX9902s for the most part. One issue is that it no longer recognizes certain contacts in WhatsApp, instead it says a contact doesn't exist yet I can reply to said contact using the reply command. I'm still waiting on the arrival of Waze and it seems to be taking forever! C'mon guys!
