Android Auto Unveiled At Google IO (Video)

Geeky Gadgets. Perhaps an alternative to the Apple Car? I think this is nice.


Android Auto.

I do like the Android phone integration and using Android for the infotainment system. It should be more open and customizable than the Apple version.

A bit of trivia about the second video... The 2014 Kia Soul uses an Android-powered UVO infotainment system and that is what is shown in the photo and the vehicle interior shots of the dash and steering wheel. However, the exterior shots of the Kia Soul being driven are a 2012-2013 model before the redesign. I'm not sure why they would have mixed the interior shots of one model year with the exterior shots of another. Perhaps the '14 hadn't been released yet and they couldn't show it? Ironically, the UVO system in the 2012-2013 models is powered by Windows CE, but I can't complain since it has worked fine in my 2012 Soul and is even firmware upgradable by the user with a download placed on a USB drive.

Still an apple guy... but that's a pretty nice system.

I have one of these and use it with this program. Mount the smart phone under the dash.
