Hey, i'm opening this thread since i've noticed that some other threads are used to talk about this.

As i have already mentioned it should be possible to show the screen content via http using my app (https://github.com/nerone-github/WebViewAuto) (or any other webview app to be exact).

Basically we need something which can pass user input (tap) from Car -> Phone, and the Image from Phone -> Car.

Now at least i can confirm that the second - Image Phone -> Car is not a big deal. It even works without root using this wonderful application

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...r.screenstream
https://github.com/dkrivoruchko/ScreenStream

Now all we need is the input. So anyone got an idea how to do that?

I know that this is basically "against" the Android Auto concept of providing a distraction-free UI. But ultimately this will probably never be an easy thing to do, and probably just used by experienced and hopefully responsible drivers.

If i understood well, you succeed to have mirroring screen of the phone to the car with the above app? At least to see the screen, without tapping.
Can you write some details to try? What should write to the address bar of WebViewauto, and what settings to screen stream over http app?
You did this without using internet data?
If this work, it is very useful although not full mirroring.
Thanks,

Just use the IP and port you see in the screen stream app. If you're not connected to Wifi you can probably use 127.0.0.1 or localhost

All I really want is some way to use Android Auto without having to use Google Play Music -- it's horrendous.
