Great!

Now I have a crazy idea: Make an Xposed Module has uses this SDK for hooking any of your installed Apps and make it compatible with AA. :D
This will be the holy grail! :fingers-crossed:
oh.... nooooo........ i don't want to root my phone....
a lot of banking apps doesn't work if rooted

AA uses a "video" stream for sending the screen data to the HU. This option (and the new 1080p) it's only for forcing the resolution. Stock size is 640p, and enhanced sizes are 720p & 1080p. Nothing related to "video play"!

You're free to not use it! I'm using Magisk+Xposed and my banking apps. :laugh:

And the idea is fresh: Add "hooked" AA compatibility on-the-fly to any app! This can be done using Xposed. :cool:

not necessarily to watch video, sometime you can "hear" mp4 song is also enough, rather than every time converting mp4 to mp3, when you want to listen

something like hearing waze instruction, once a while, not like you have to look at waze every time

if you understand what i am trying to say...

Anyone interested in writing custom Android Auto apps?
github.com / martoreto/aauto-sdk

wow. it is a remarkable good news.
I hope it's also possible to put an app running on the phone on the car screen.
Or is it possible to create an app that mirrors the phone screen?
I am looking forward to the development of the developers in the future.

Thanks.

Well, this is not easy to do automatically, as car activities are quite different from normal ones.

This is possible, but:
  • Passing touchscreen events requires root.
  • Android Auto normally replaces screen content with its logo and it would be mirrored. :)

Even if you do not touch it, it will be a big help if you can see it on the car screen. I want to run 3rd party GPS app instead of Google map.

Unfortunately, not on the one built in on my Kia. Given it a lot of tries and with different phones and roms, but no go... Only works with Bluetooth, not while plugged in through USB and AA running...
Strange...
Anyway,even if connected with USB for AA head unit , audio goes through Bluetooth , did you enabled V4A in Bluetooth?

Audio is channelled through USB while on AA, as far as I know... At least that's what I've read on specialised sites, forums, and tested on my own car. V4A works well while streaming through Bluetooth, but once you plug it in to USB, no processing is done since the head units DSP takes over...

    Added another app to my repo: https://github.com/nerone-github/WebViewAuto :)

    It still needs work, much to improve, but shows that a lot is possible. Even youtube is working ;)
