Over 400 cars and aftermarket stereo units have Android Auto

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

Android Auto was announced at Google I/O 2014, but it didn't start showing up on cars until the following year. Like Apple's CarPlay technology that was announced the same year, Android Auto is designed to use your smartphone as the 'brains' for your car's head unit. No more outdated and ugly head unit interfaces; just Google Maps and whatever other Auto-compatible apps you have installed.

According to the Auto page on Android's website, there are now "over 400 compatible car and aftermarket stereo models available right now" with Auto.

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

If you think it looks like a miniature Echo Dot for your car, you're basically spot on. The Garmin Speak is a GPS navigation unit with Amazon Alexa built-in. It was announced yesterday and is the first in-car device of its kind to add Alexa capabilities. At just an inch and a half, it's tiny, and yet it offers the same turn-by-turn GPS navigation as Garmin's other products while also including Amazon's smart assistant.

Android Auto is now supported on six Mercedes-Benz 2018 C-Class and GLC-Class cars

Sunday, October 15th, 2017

High-quality leather, wood, and metal just aren't enough anymore. A premium automobile cabin requires some modern technology to go along with all those deluxe materials, and car manufacturers like Mercedes-Benz understand that. Since the German automaker joined the Open Automotive Alliance in April 2016, it's gradually grown its fleet of passenger vehicles supporting Android Auto. Now with the addition of six compatible 2018 C-Class and GLC-Class models, Mercedes-Benz has a grand total of 24 cars capable of displaying Android on dashboard screens.

Anki OVERDRIVE: Fast & Furious Edition review: Just as good as the original, but with 100% more Vin Diesel

Saturday, September 23rd, 2017

Anki is one of the biggest names in electronic toys right now, and for good reason; it's one of the few companies that has brought robotics to kids. This all started with its 2014 introduction of "Anki Drive," a more modern take on slot car racing that added weapons and artificial intelligence. "OVERDRIVE" was released in 2015 as a successor to Drive, and proved to be a market success. After all, it's the first Anki product I'd ever heard of.

Google’s Street View cameras are getting an upgrade

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

Eight years ago, Circuit City closed its remaining stores, Michael Jackson died, and Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States. Eight years ago was also the last time Google's Street View cameras got a major upgrade. According to Wired, the company has started rolling out updated cameras to its fleet of picture-snapping cars.

The new rig now features just seven cameras, down from the 15 mounted on the old version.

Pioneer’s three 2017 Android Auto head units, including a single-DIN model, are now available at multiple retailers

Friday, July 21st, 2017

Pioneer is one of the most active manufacturers in the Android Auto head unit game, and that hasn't changed for 2017. The AVH-3300NEX, AVH-2330NEX, and AVH-2300NEX were all announced earlier this year, but they haven't been available for purchase until now. Interestingly, the 3300NEX is actually a single-DIN unit - a first for Pioneer's Android Auto lineup.

All of these are more budget-oriented than, say, the 8100NEX that we looked at back in 2015.

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

Suzuki may not sell cars in the US anymore, but it still does in many global markets. To help keep its cars modern, the Japanese auto manufacturer is adding Android Auto support to quite a few vehicles in its lineup - 11, to be specific. Not bad for a company that is known for building economy cars.

The Suzuki Android Auto page was just updated today with eleven new compatible vehicles; the page simply said "coming soon" before that.

Ultimate Lightning McQueen by Sphero review: Not nearly enough ka-chow for $300

Friday, July 7th, 2017

The original Cars movie came out in March 2006. That may not seem like all that long ago to some of you, but keep this in mind: it wasn't until September 2008 that the first-ever Android phone, the HTC Dream, made its consumer debut. Back in '06, I was just a kid who was much more interested in toy cars than technology. You can imagine, then, how excited I was to see a Pixar movie with animated talking cars.
