Android Auto getting a massive UI update.
« May 08, 2019, 11:15:34 »
It looks like Android Auto is getting a massive UI update, and it appears to be coming soon [apparently being released in the Summer of the Northern Hemisphere].. So fingers cross it's not that far away ..

The new UI just looks downright pretty!

I'm fairly sure you'll have to have it done via the dealer, there's several versions of the PD head unit used between different countries so all would need their own specific software update.

I would have thought as it mirrors what is on your phone it would just come via an update of the App on your phone?  :undecided:
