Pioneer releases a pair of new Android Auto head units with wireless support

Friday, May 25th, 2018

A lot of cars come with Android Auto these days, but you may actually get more features if you have an older car and add in an aftermarket head unit. Pioneer has launched two new AV receivers with Android Auto support. They aren't cheap, but that's par for the course.

Pioneer has actually launcher three new head units today: the AVIC-W8400NEX, AVIC-W6400NEX, and AVH-W4400NEX. Only the 4400 and 8400 have Android Auto—the other only works with Apple CarPlay.

Monday, May 14th, 2018

Android 8.1 Oreo has rolled out to both the standard and Android One versions of the Moto X4 by now, but the update has brought with it a pretty major issue: nonfunctional USB transfer. That means that Android Auto and ADB, among other things, are currently not working. Luckily, there's somewhat of a workaround, as well as a fix on the way.

Countless threads on the Google Product Forums, Motorola Community, and XDA Forums have been created to discuss the issue.

For Google, it’s full speed ahead with Android Automotive, but not so much with Android Auto

Monday, May 14th, 2018

By some measures, Android Auto is a huge success. Google's infotainment system is available in cars from dozens of automakers, and consumers will be using these vehicles for years. That's a lot of people incentivized to use services like Assistant and Maps, but Auto is inherently limited as a projected interface from your phone. The car integration tab in Auto remains baren in virtually all vehicles. Google's solution is to build a version of Android that runs on cars, which it calls Android Automotive.

Google is gearing up for a lot of announcements tomorrow at I/O, but it looks like the company is ready to start sharing ahead of time a little bit of car-related news.

Monday, April 30th, 2018

Getting Android Auto in a vehicle that doesn't already have it can be a pricey proposition. Some head units can cost upward of $1,000, and then you have to pay to get them installed. There's a good deal today, though. You can get the JVC KW-M730BT for just $280. That's the lowest price we've seen so far.

This head unit fits in vehicles that have a standard double-DIN dash system. Keep in mind, that's not especially common in new vehicles.

Update Notes for Android Auto, Photos, Tasks, Play Music, Maps, and more (April 30, 2018)

Monday, April 30th, 2018

Every week, I examine somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred app updates while looking for changes. The most interesting things turn into APK Teardowns or Download posts. Many of the remaining updates are unremarkable, amounting to a few bug fixes, routine updates to libraries, or even just pixel-level adjustments to layouts and images. However, there are usually a few updates that land somewhere in between. I don't want to spam readers with dozens of short posts, but I hate to ignore things that people might want to know about, so I'm going to wrap up the leftovers for a little weekend reading and call it Update Notes.
