Kenwood introduces three Android Auto head units for 2019, topping out at $1,600

Sunday, January 6th, 2019

Android Auto hasn't changed much since last year, which means that the revised double-DIN head unit models being revealed by car electronics companies this year won't be all that interesting. Case in point: Kenwood's three new Android Auto head units, which are being revealed at CES, are pretty uninteresting. The only part that's interesting to me is the flagship model's stunning $1,599.95 MSRP.

Let's start with the two cheaper models: the $599.95 eXcelon DMX7706S and the $649.95 eXcelon DMX706S.

Friday, January 4th, 2019

Back at I/O '17, Google announced that Volvo and Audi would be the first manufacturers to introduce a standalone, more deeply integrated version of Android Auto. One year later, at I/O '18, Google actually showed off several cars with prototypes of what it now called "Android Automotive." Now that Volvo has revealed that its all-electric Polestar 2 will be the first car with Android Automotive onboard, we finally have a more concrete arrival date for Google's long-awaited infotainment system.

[Update: Supported models] Jaguar and Land Rover confirm 2019 vehicles will get Android Auto

Wednesday, November 14th, 2018

Most automakers moved surprisingly fast to adopt Android Auto (and CarPlay) over the last couple years. That's in spite of the fact that Android Auto makes it harder to sell spendy navigation-enabled infotainment upgrades. Still, it's taken some longer than others to come around.

Google Maps is making it easier to find electric vehicle charging stations

Wednesday, October 17th, 2018

Electric vehicles still make up a relatively small portion of cars on the road, and places to refuel them aren't nearly as ubiquitous as gas stations. Google is taking steps to make living an EV lifestyle a little less of a pain, adding new information about charging stations to Google Maps starting this week.

When you search a term like "EV station" or "electric vehicle chargers," Maps will turn up results of exactly that, complete with little EV charger icons.

After trialing Carpool in a few cities, Waze is now rolling it out across the US.

With Waze Carpool, you can search for drivers who are going in the same general direction as you each morning.

Sunday, September 23rd, 2018

Toyota is one of the few car major manufacturers that have refused to add support for Android Auto, along with BMW, MINI, and Lexus. However, that might finally be changing. According to Bloomberg, Toyota has reached an agreement with Google that may be officially announced as soon as October.

Toyota has reportedly agreed to include Android Auto in its vehicles, after the company announced support for Apple CarPlay in January. It's not clear at this time which vehicles will have Android Auto, or which (if any) existing models will receive a software update enabling the feature.

Thursday, September 6th, 2018

IFA 2018 may be over, but there are still some interesting tidbits of news worth mentioning. One of the stands we visited briefly in Berlin last week was that of German Autolabs to see an interesting new product. It may resemble a Nest Thermostat, but Chris is actually a digital assistant for your car.

The company who makes it likes to think of it as an Alexa-type device that you can use while driving, and it's easy to see why.
