Hi all, I was working with Mike Reid on his Android Auto work. I was talking to him up to the day he went to hospital.

Unfortunately, it appears he has passed away. I asked a private investigator to try and contact him - see what hospital is at. We unfortunately found a death record matching his region of Canada.

I'd love to be wrong, but it appears he has passed. The death record matched up to about a week or two after he entered hospital.

My team is continuing his Android Auto work by starting the OpenHU project. We've set up a $10,000 bounty - as Google just broke his app over there with changes to GMS: http://console.com.co/openhu

Saw people asking about this, felt I should share over here on Mike's other projects.

Terrible news. But thank you so much on behalf of all of us for sharing it.

Mike had a young family, so I hope somehow we can get a donation account set up for them. I don't think any of us really know the dedication and hours Mike put in to his work, a true labour of love for so little reward. He had so much to contribute. It's still my favourite app of all time. Genius.

God bless him and his family. Wherever they may be.

That's sad to hear - each dead person means relatives left behind, sometimes with insecurities about the financial future.

My condolences to Mike's family, relatives and friends if this turns out to be the sad truth.

This comes as a shock to me as it feels like we talked just yesterday. Mike was one of the kind person I came across. It's truly a loss. May he rest in peace.

Upon seeing no reply to my e-mail from Mike I found this group and joined a minute ago. I am from India and got to know about Mike's great works very late.
It is really sad & shocking news to me if it is true. May his soul rest in peace..
Agree with making a contribution to his beloved ones in respect of his great work.

I know I'm late, but it's sad to see an other XDA contributor/developer has passed away. Much love and respect towards his family
