"Headunit" is the app name I've settled on. Short & sweet.
Want to see this Headunit app fixed and improved on a regular basis ?
Then I need your help...
First need is some IMO well deserved publicity. There is no other app like this and I think there is a need...
I saw LOTS of excitement on Android enthusiast sites about Android Auto. And a LOT of excitement dissipated hearing that a $700 Headunit or new car was required.
So wouldn't turning a $165 Nexus 7 2013 tablet into a basic AA Headunit with an app restore some excitement ?
I've been busy on the tech side, but to keep this project moving, people need to find out about it.
I've started a new thread here for all further discussion about my Headunit app: http://forum.xda-developers.com/gene...-auto-t3125252
If it seems worthy to you, please consider clicking on "Submit Thread as News Tip" at top right of that thread.
Most Android news and discussion sites have similar functions to submit news tips. If it comes from people like you, I'd think it has more weight than me trying to promote my new app.
XDA is kinda, sorta, not supposed to be used to SELL things (and that's kinda vague & fuzzy, and there IS a section for paid apps, where my new thread is), and I understand and respect that...
But truth is that my second, and perhaps most important need, in order to support YOU, is for some "little bits" of support from you... See my new thread or sig for the new paid APK on Play.
There are other, Android Auto/Connected Car app ideas I have, should this one garner insufficient support. Feel free to comment:
- Use any media player (or messenging) with AA, where it does not have AA extensions.
- App to connect sensors, + via ODB and maybe Torque like functionality.
- Standalone mode for AA running on a phone. Will likely require root and Xposed and LOTS of work and workaround when Google sabotages it.
- Customization of Android Auto via root/Xposed app; Change anything from backgrounds to color to rules that AA imposes in the name of safety and anything else that needs a mod.
