Seeing that this is a full android device, like a tablet in your car with a radio built in to it, why would you need Android Auto? I guess I dont really understand Android Auto. I see after market head units say they support Android Auto but they are also not android based head units like the Atoto is. If your wanting a mirroring feature this does have one but I dont and have never used it. I honestly dont see a reason too.
With that, my steering wheel controls have suddenly stopped working properly. I dont know if its the head unit or the IPAC unit but I can program the steering wheel controls in the system setting and they seem to program just fine then I go to use them and they wont work or they will work randomly or they will not function like I programmed them. So its pretty much back to using the head unit controls.
Its been 6 months and while I still like it, I have a few dislikes that bother me more now.
1. The steering wheel controls suddenly not working properly (Not sure if its the IPAC unit or the head unit).
2. the radio turning on every single time you turn on the vehicle (Supposedly an update for that issue but I have heard of peoples head units bricking or breaking during/after the update so I havent updated). I wish it just default to whatever you were doing last.
3. the volume difference between the radio and other media. The radio volume is so much higher so if your listening to something on your SD card and shut your car off and later turn it back on, the radio starts up first and will be crazy loud.
4. How the system handles updating apps. It takes forever to update and install apps. It took me a solid 20 minutes to update a small app the other day and took a solid 15 minutes to install an app from my SD card where as my phone (Galaxy S5) will update the same app in 1-2 minutes.
Other than that, I still really like it. Im thinking of updating to the newer version with the physical buttons on it though. I wish someone like Alpine or Pioneer would actually make a true android head unit though. The only people that do are all these Chinese companies.
Also, mine came with a cheap feeling screen protector on it and im glad I never took it off or else my screen would be scratched up. I have an 8 year old that likes to stick his dirty fingers on it all the time.
