    Still got pixelation issues on my head unit and Google not even acknowledging the issue, never mind fixing it. Update 23/10 Google now asking for me to visit community, that's where I'm getting ignored in the first place! Update 1/2 months of people complaining in forums, still no acknowledgement or fix from Google. Update 16/02 again absolutely no acknowledgement of even a fault in a £40k car system, beyond a joke!

    I love having the power of my Android phone on the big screen in my car. The user interface is much more intuitive and also more powerful than Apple Carplay. I have an iPhone, and Carplay is useless for third-party apps. Android Auto supports a strong selection of audio apps, and the two best navigation apps, Google Maps and Waze. The only problem I have is that occasionally the Google Assistant will freeze up, and I'll have to restart my session. Full Review

    Crashes regularly for no apparent reason. Good when it works but too many glitches. Starts itself when the phone is connected to the car via BT even though it only works via cable? All sorts of issues if you dare to connect 2 phones to your cars BT at the same time... Full Review

    Just set it up with a '18 Chevy Impala. The OEM display in the Chevy is good. Unfortunately, when I exit the app it turns off the auto screen brightness on my Galaxy S7 and sets the display to full dim. Not a problem at night but a HUGE hassle during the day because I can't see anything on the Samsung display. Very disappointed. Full Review

    Needs work. Great interface, works well when it reads texts, plays music. Didn't understand what music I was asking for a few times, so that's a bit glitchy. It has also caused Maps to crash a couple of times. When it works, it's been great. When it doesn't, it's been irritating. Full Review

    50% of the time it works fine, but the other 50% is very frustrating. Voice recognition responds with don't understand to the simplest of commands, phone disconnects randomly, and very slow to respond. I have none of these issues when using apple car play in the same car.... Kia sportage 2017 Full Review

    Great app overall. The only thing I would change is that don't like that the app automatically opens everytime the phone is unlocked or the home screen is pressed. It makes it hard to open other apps. Full Review

    Keeps crashing, ever since updating to latest version, it wont allow you to read text messages on your phone or connected device in car. The coloured dots just sit there and dont do anything. Messages dont get read out or will allow you to reply. Was working fine until i did the updates. Full Review

    This "safety over all" sucks. i want to type whatsapp messages or a street while driving. search all albums. Voice input sucks for any language other than english. And it doesnt recognize any slang... Limiting to voice doesnt make driving safer - it makes it more dangerous because people still use the phone instead. ;) Think About it Google! I personally - am now using the phone while driving instead of AA. So why don't make AA a good experience instead of prohibiting everything. A user who used the phone before now can use the car dash and it will result in better car safety. Full Review

    Fantastic app, does directions, manages calls, uses on Google to allow voice commands, reads my WhatsApp messages to me, plays audio, and more. Only issue I have is the need to connect a USB cable Full Review

    I use the on-phone version of the app with my Nexus 6P, and it works well for me. The interface is great, and very straightforward. This is the best hands-free solution I've used. The design could be a little cleaner and provide more customization, but it is far better than some others. I use it every day with no crashing or functionality issues. Full Review

    You've basically broken it because now it asks me if I want to launch it always or just once and if I select just once he comes back and asks me again and again and again and again. I don't want it as the default app. Full Review

    I like it for maps since my f150 didn't come with navigation. But amazon music seems to stream poorly might be the amazon app but it streamed fine before the android auto app. Full Review

    For the new Ford M1 multimedia system used in Brazil works every well , got some minor bugs on google assistant voice recognition but it's just a matter of reconnecting the cable again , sometimes has some minor malfunctions when changing from maps to spotify app , song/artist requests but I believe is more a temporary overload from the phone .. I use a Samsung C9 pro with 6Gb ram and the connection speed is unbelievable one tip for Google/Android auto would be to include an Multilanguage recognition . I use Portuguese and English with it and every time I receive a Portuguese message the translation is simply hilarious !! Highly recommended for Ford M1 multimedia system ! Full Review
