Indeed it was started as a side project of HUR but it outgrowth it quite fast and the number of non-hur users is much higher then HUR users...

@Emil Borconi

hi i have posted this morning an evaluation of AA in the store. it was negative
membres can do the same

here is the text in french wich can be easily translated via Google and adapted, then posted in évaluation on store

"Une fois de plus Google, dans sa position dominante, veut imposer les applications tierces pouvant utiliser Android auto. la version 3 contient un pare-feu interdisant les applications pour lesquelles Google aurait décidé leur diffusion ou pas, bravant ainsi d une part les libertés individuelles et les droits de l homme. De quel droit ? malgré les apparences, nous ne sommes plus en 1939-1945 et encore moins dans le roman de Georges Orwell. ou sont les libertés individuelles et le respect du droit de chacun? Visiblement pas chez Google."

Vote Down Android Auto!
Hi Emil,

while us users cannot really appeal to the Google staff who has word over the apps going into the store or not, we can always beat Google at it's own game ... and this means voting for the Android Auto app in the store!

Previously, I voted for AA and gave it "5" stars plus great written feedback.

So, yesterday I went ahead and reduced that to "1" star together with a remark that under this ridiculous policy this vote will stay until they allow OBD2App into the store.

I'd like to ask everyone who has bought the app and is using it under a regular Google account to do the same.

VOTE ANDROID AUTO DOWN BECAUSE OF THIS. LET THEM KNOW YOU CARE!!!

All the best

PS: While this is not a permanent solution, reinstalling AA v2.9 brought functionality back.

That is one way but this thread is read by Google employees and AA developers so posting a comment here has a higher chance of being noted by Google: https://productforums.google.com/d/t...to/pLTqJpGGFPs (@fbike)

Hi again,

in this case, I will post my email to google in here, too.

"To whom it may concern,

I am a frequent user and buyer of services by google. I understand that I trade data for the services rendered and that is fine with me.

While I am very satisfied with the overall quality of your services and products, I wish to address one issue that really bothers me: OBD Support in Android Auto!

I love Android Auto and use it every single day! I have in fact waited for a software just like this, to bring together my favorite phone applications and make them usable inside the car. In fact, in the past ten years while smart phones were on the rise, I have made numerous attempts on my own that included a crazy amount of adapters, cradles and cables.

Now we have Android Auto and while maps and calls are great, I have bought my new radio with one more feature in mind: read OBD info!

This is the single piece that completes the puzzle. My car is from 2005 and does not have a fancy LED dashboard like other cars today.

Thanks to the ODB2 Plugin from Emil Borconi (developed at XDA Labs), I am finally able to do that.

https://forum.xda-developers.com/gen...9#post76042479

With it, my car tells me if the roads get icey and when the engine has operating temperature. It warns me of traffic cameras and dangerous situations ahead. I always have the most important gauges in view - just like the old analogue gauges I had in my 72 Buick and 72 Toronado! Only digital and better!

Unfortunately, after updating to AA 3.0+, this plugin no longer works. I understand that there are issues with it going against certain guidelines.

I believe that this - while technically justifiable - does not do this application justice. If you look at the attached picture you will see that the information presented in this app does not distract the drive and is purely informative. It is not flashing, not disturbing, not loud and does not require my interaction.

Being a true innovation to the Google play store and a real improvement for people driving cars that don't have expensive LED instrument panels, I would like to make a case for this app.

Please alllow this app onto Android Auto and into the store. This is where it truly belongs.

Thank you very much for your consideration."

Thanks! Followed your recommendation and put my review to a 1 until they bring back OBD2

Because google banned it from Android Auto, so it's been temporary removed so no one else can buy it until a fix is in place, I'm sure Emil can email you the apk..
