On this week's episode, we take a good, long look at Android Auto (and a sidelong glance at Android Automotive) including the technical nuts and bolts of how it works and the seemingly immovable burdens that present when Google partners with automakers.
We're joined by Emil Borconi-Szedressy, a co-developer of the nifty AAWireless dongle to enable wireless Android Auto in otherwise-incompatible vehicles and the creator of the Headunit Reloaded app which enables Android Auto in aftermarket head units.
