Weeks ago Google launched the Android Auto app on Google Play, but there's only one problem: it only works in conjunction with a Head unit, ie only with a multimedia system pre-installed in your car.
Other than that, it serves no purpose.
But now you can have the Android Auto experience on your smartphone or tablet, or nearly so.
Through an application called AutoMate, which simulates the interface and functions of Android Auto on any Android without you having a Head unit, the user can use a launcher identical to the Google system that fits on any device.
Since Android Auto was shown last year, this developer has started working on the AutoMate app.
Today, finally a beta version of the app has been made available on Google Play.
Obviously, being beta, many functions have not been implemented or are in error.
Also, the app is common to lock or close alone.
In the GPS navigation part, it has its own interface, identical to Android Auto, where the user can type or speak the address using the voice recognition of the phone.
Then just click on the navigation icon to open the map.
