When it works, it works. There are some quite irritating problems though. 1. I wish it worked without a plug in any vehicle. 2. Sometimes I can't listen to anything on YouTube or other platforms that aren't part of the Android Auto app economy. Even if it's a podcast with no video. It will play for a second and go silent while the timeline continues on my phone. 3. Randomly, Spotify will play music but will not display songs and it will stop working with steering wheel commands.

I can't believe this but they are actually making it worse. Ever since it went from being an app to a part of operating system, it's performance is glitchy. Requiring restarting the car and phone. Getting into the car with VPN enabled causes it to crash. Causing a restart of both to operate.

Love this app! I started using it when I got my Honda CRV, because the built-in navigation is kinda terrible. I love that I can search easily while driving and get results on the route and logically organized. I read some of the other reviews, and honestly haven't had any of those problems. It easily switches between my music choices, the map is great, and I love the split screen.

When it works, it's great. Like clockwork, it disconnects from wifi in the same exact spots every day on my drive. If they'd fix the disruptions from interference, I'd give it a solid 5/5. I've searched for solutions to this issue and tried everything I could find, but none fix the problem with AA connection dropping. I use wifi every day when I'm not in the car, and I've never had it drop. Ever.

New vehicles are now coming with screens with no buttons. I wish android auto would have options to search radio stations and tune the radio while in split screen with a map app. I have to get out of android auto and press several buttons through the control head just to search radio stations on road trips. Creates a big distraction, having to push several buttons to change the radio station.

This is my 4th car with Android auto, so I've had a lot of experience using it. Overall, it's great. It does still have some issues, mostly with disconnecting. I've tried with wires and wireless. I was hopeful that the issue was solved with wireless usage cause we are avoiding wires that get faulty after a while. Nope, it still disconnects wirelessly at random times. Sometimes, it reconnects immediately, and other times, it just can't.
