It is hard to stop Play Services from updating itself.
I'm trying to do this disabling write permission to /data/app/com.google.android.gms.* using
Code:
 chattr +i /data/app/com.google.android.gms.*
(dunno if it's recursive, to be sure I did it also on the apk into the folder), till now it's working (did it this morning), I'm watching over to be sure it can't update anymore.

If you know other ways to do that let me know, the best way to let the custom apps work would be using Xposed to bypass the limitations bound into Play Services app I guess...

I seriously hope someone figures this stuff out. The only reason I decided to give up my nice full android radio, was because I could watch youtube within AA

I'm now using a phone mount :E

I think there won't be an easy way especially since i don't want to root my phone.

I'm tryinging to find a way to get MirrorLink to run as it has 1:1 mirror on the VAG/SEAT. This will be the better alternative. No Google Dictatorship.

You can try magisk, it doesn't break safety net and you can hide it from your banking apps

I don't think what Google is doing here is legal.

I don't care about custom apps. I want to run apps from outside of Google Play because I don't want to have a Google account. Removing my Google account from my phone is my right to privacy.

Android Auto is an advertised feature of my phone. Google has no right to interfere with my phone's ability to function just because I declined to agree to their ToS and be tracked by them.

Have anyone checked "Android Car Support UI" released by Google? Cannot find any info about them.
https://mvnrepository.com/artifact/androidx.car
https://mvnrepository.com/artifact/com.android.support/car

That's an interesting finding. Actually some version of com.android.support.car is a part of the AA SDK as well. AFAIK the final idea is that this package is common to both Android Auto (where the phone-generated content is projected on the car screen) and Android Automotive (where the car screen actually runs Android). I don't know if this goal has already been reached.

Hi, I have a waze version modified to have the bigger speedometer icon. Only as she is no longer signed google she no longer works on AA. Is it possible to modify something in AA to see it again? I do not want to go through screen because too greedy for my smartphone. Thank you

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. :)
Hi, I am building my android app. I want a feature like I want car display unit to display whatever i run in my phone and also user can interact from car display unit also

    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 ;)

    Yeah....

    Because when he wrote
    With great power comes great responsibility. Do not write apps that distract drivers. Distraction is dangerous.

    What he meant was:
    Lets put Youtube clips in your dashboard :rolleyes:
