Android Auto review

Android Auto is Google’s play to get in your car and make you a safer driver. It’s now available in the 2015 Hyundai Sonata, which is the first car you can get Android Auto in from the factory. We spent a couple of weeks behind the wheel of an Android Auto equipped Sonata to see how it all works.

Can someone tell me if you have to connect the phone with a USB all the time? Or can you just connect with Bluetooth? Is it the same for Apple CarPlay too?

Encore 4K says:

OMG, why my 2015 Sonata doesn’t have it 🙁

SooperMikey says:

You can 100% use your phone. shout out to iPhone users making Android reviews.

Matthew Jardine says:

It is nice to see that the LG G4 does support Android Auto as that is currently my phone of choice for my next upgrade. Only challenge is I don’t plan on purchasing a new car anytime soon. I know there are after-market systems that you can install in existing cars, but they are ridiculously expensive.

walid boukhris says:

pls i need to know if android auto is supported by mazda’s vehicul ?

magicspells says:

i love how he say’s through out most the video “they want you to focus on using your voice” while whole time the dude was using his hands. :/

ruzzell907 says:

2:29 Dan being adorable

Douken says:

Gonna have to pass on this till it gets better than the QNX competition

webcomment says:

What?  So, you can’t create appointments and reminders by voice like you can directly on the phone?

webcomment says:

Can you have Android Auto read your email messages out loud to you?
I can do this easily using Siri with in iPhone.

DC R says:

Super buggy.. drops on my note4.. yuck

Forest Noise says:

…and the BMW i8 still hasn’t any wifi charging…

Gunner23 says:

It should include YouTube

Wayne Anderson says:

Can you please expand on the statement…”May not charge your phone while plugged in”. Thx!

Nice review!

>in park
>perpetuating automatic transmission culture

Jesse Lee says:

I experimented with waze, Google maps driving mode, and a magellan gps. I prefer the magellan.

Jake Voss says:

The dude reminds of Doug Gugenheim (if I spelled that right) from House of Lies. Talks like him too LOL.

coolertuep says:

they show this ina hyundai. The typical car the average android user wil drive. great adverstise.
apple will be used by merced, audi, bmw, ferrari and co drivers, so they show their tech in these cars.

Aleinux says:

Insane love for Android


i think windows tiles is best for car system. it is very lite & smooth. not fuzzy like android or apple ios

Mohammad Afaq says:

Pauses this video on my phone.
Looks up and turns onto the motorway.
Looks back at the one and continues watching video

TheOccTher says:

Once the phone is plugged in, is it mirrored on the car display?
Also, can it be paired via bluetooth or it must be plugged in?

Abr3200 says:

So bassically its just an android wear divice in your car ¬¬

Max Colton says:

Good infos but I don’t want to always plug my phone everytime I’m in the car. That would be really annoying when you’re making 5 stops in a day.  I like my phone wireless bluetooth .  Another problem is that if you use a specialty app for your music like Djay2, the voice would not know to play that song for that particular app instead just load a default player.

Luiz Eduardo says:

Fuck Android! I want that car!

Andrius Mindaugas Bloznelis says:

Is this video narrated by Chris Griffin?

Brandon Spears says:

Yes, but how do I hack into it?

Christian Castelan says:

this. is stupit

vikki skinner says:

You are using your hands this is not hands free very unsafe …twitt

rakan aljuraid says:

does someone have the upgrade file for sonata 2016 SE

Ant Eyes says:

does it let you use the pornhub app?

Abiel Zulio M says:

Do search how old is Jared Leto while driving, 8/10.

tomtebre says:

3:07 wow. That’s alot of traffic lights

Mati12ful says:

how i can put my own Picture as a wallpaper on my hyundai tucson navigation 2016 ?

R Yokoe says:

Amazing that the government had to tell us that texting while driving is unsafe. The stupidity of the people makes me think that it is good that we have a big, intrusive government

NextNate03 says:

I like Google maps navigation on short trips (around the city).
On the long trips (across the state), its a nightmare. It crashes and stops working alot. It takes a while to find the gps in a roaming area. The app has crashed so bad on me 2 times, I had to take the battery out of my phone to restart my phone.

Gitonga Mwaniki says:

can you shoehorn this into a ferrari 599gto? or an enzo? or a vantage gt? or 2005 ford gt

Rusty Chan says:

Only thing this video doesn’t tell you is The Google Map navigation is bad, it doesn’t move!!! Only tells you the route, unless I don’t know how to use it, enlighten me!

PaconskY says:

It still lags (
I don’t understand this, you are buying a car for several thousands of dollars, while there is the potato masher PC for $350 bucks that runs GTA 5 on 4k at 30 fps, and here they can not put a comp that will run a simple 3D map app that will perform lag-less…

J. Martin says:

Cant be worse than apple carplay -_-

Orxan Huseynzade says:

Terrible. Apple car better anyway. Generally, apple products are the most usefull products in the world. No contest.

Michael Smith says:

+1 for Baroness.

ThailandVenture says:

You can now have both apple car play and android auto in your car u have now. Just pick up a 2015 Pioneer app radio unit or AVIC series head unit and walla. Much better than the stock head units that are available or will be rolling out anytime soon. MUCH cheaper also than a factory head unit you can buy from the auto manufacturer. 😉

@Norbert Rittel English, motherfucker, do you speak it??
