We’ve all seen the car traveling down the road, swerving randomly, only to come alongside the car and see the driver fiddling with their phone. The trend by car manufacturers is to move some of your smart phone functions to the dashboard, as well as limiting other functions, while the car is in motion.  These new dashboards and driving Apps are being created with the intention of moving the driver’s attention back to the road.

If you have one of these Android Auto compatible vehicles or an aftermarket radio you can easily link up your Andriod phone, for many of the hands-free functions. Many of these same manufacturers are integrating the physical controls into the steering wheel, to keep those hands on the wheel.
Here’s a breakdown of the features of each of the Android Auto App functions.
As with Google maps app you may already have on your phone, the Android Auto provides free voice-guided navigation, live traffic information, lane guidance
Make calls, send and receive messages.
