With the latest Google app and Play Services, AA demands to be upgraded to 6.5 before starting. I haven't been overly eager to mess with what works given these updates never really add anything and features appear to be unlocked server-side, but we definitely need a module update for 6.5 now that previous versions no longer work.

    Simple module to make Android Auto less restrictive. History on this module can be found here and an article about the in-motion tap limits here. This module should remove the "speed bump" notification (Browsing locked for safety) and allow you to scroll through lists (playlists, song lists, etc) without hindrance.

    There's also a reddit thread/request which has more specifics about what this module is trying to accomplish.

    Features:
    • Should work for all aftermarket AA-capable headunits (might require a hard-wired bypass module depending on model)
    • Should also work for most OEM AA headunits that are built into newer vehicles
    • Should also work for standalone AA running on a phone and not connected to a headunit

    Here comes the really large and obnoxious disclaimer.......

    This module can alter the built-in safety features that Google has implemented in Android Auto. By downloading and installing, you agree that YOU, and only YOU, are solely responsible for any negative repercussions that may result. This can include injury to yourself and/or others, property damage, or loss of life. Under no circumstances is the author of this module responsible for its use!

    ...not that a simple disclaimer on a forum post would go far if anything were to happen, but I felt the need to put it out there. Please use YOUR best judgement when it comes to operating a vehicle and futzing with your Android Auto headunit.

    Development and testing was done on a Nexus 5x running Android Auto v1.6.240040 (2719917-release) and a Pioneer AVH-4200NEX w/ micro bypass. This should work on any Lollipop and newer rom, assuming Android Auto works on it.

    Question: should I hold of on updating aa from play store until this module gets updated?

    Yes. Unfortunately Google has obfuscated the code in AA since around version 2.x, so the module has to be adapted to every version that comes out.

    That being said, it sometimes helps bring it to my attention that a new AA version is available if someone posts in this thread.

    I'll try and work on 3.5.583xxx and post something shortly.

    EDIT: Updated first post (and Repo) with module for AA 3.5.583xxx -- Please let me know if there are any issues.

    I'll try it under Android Auto Version 2.7.573954 and let you know.

    I posted an updated version for the latest AA on the OP and to the Xposed Repo.
