Android Auto

You don't need to blow a fortune on a new vehicle to get to use Android Auto. A number of manufacturers, including Pioneer, are showing off aftermarket head units using Google's automotive software. Like previous Android Auto implementations, such as the early versions shown off at Google I/O, Pioneer's system lets you control your mobile world using your voice, or the built-in touch interface. Simply connect a supported Android phone over USB to link calls, messages, navigation and music into the head unit.

Of the six new Pioneer head units supporting Apple's rival CarPlay, three will also support Android Auto. Higher-end models like the 8100NEX will feature capacitive touchscreens, while cheaper resistive models will also be offered.
