Buying an Android Auto receiver.

What is Android Auto?

Android Auto, sometimes referred to as Google auto, is a software platform developed by Google that is designed to provide a safer and more convenient way to use the features and apps of your Android smartphone while driving. It is aimed to reduce distractions by offering a simplified, voice-controlled interface. An Android Auto receiver is a car stereo receiver that is compatible with Android Auto.

Providing turn-by-turn navigation with real-time traffic updates, a car stereo with Android Auto helps you find your way to any location. And, you can enter in destinations using voice commands, giving you a hands-free experience. Of course, you can always pull over to the side of the road and manually enter your destination into a user-friendly interface with touch screen Android Auto receivers if you’d prefer.

The wireless Android Auto setup also supports a variety of compatible apps, letting you access and control music, podcasts, audiobooks and streaming services. This is why swapping out your old receiver with a car infotainment system with Android Auto is an easy way to upgrade your in-car entertainment. Also, Android Auto is built into newer phones, so you no longer need an Android Auto app to experience all the platform has to offer.

Getting the most out of an Android Auto receiver.

After getting an Android Auto receiver, first you should ensure that your smartphone is compatible with Android Auto. Both Samsung Galaxy smartphones and Google Pixel smartphones should work with Android Auto.

Once connected, you can prioritize safety by using voice commands for navigation, calls and messaging. Instead of relying on a car mount and using your phone’s screen, you can also use the Android Auto receiver’s bigger, user-friendly touch screen. Modeled after the home screen of your Android phone, the receiver’s screen has all of your favorite apps right at your fingertips. Make sure to also pick up a car charger to ensure that your smartphone’s battery doesn’t run out.

Next, make sure your Android Auto receiver has all of the other features you might need. For music fans not quite ready to get rid of their collection, CD player Android Auto receivers are available. For people who enjoy satellite radio, there are SiriusXM ready Android Auto receivers, letting you enjoy a wide range of entertainment.

Finally, remember to keep your Android Auto receiver’s software up-to-date. Manufacturers often release updates to improve performance, add new features and enhance security. And, make sure everything is set up and installed properly with car electronics professional installation from Best Buy, offering a lifetime workmanship guarantee on all installations.
