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.

What does this mod do?

"Make Android Auto less restrictive" is very vague, and the history thread is disorganized. Can you add a feature list?

Sorry about that. I've added a few lines about what it does to the OP.

That's odd. When I edit the first post, I can see that the APK is attached. But it isn't showing up. It's probably something to do with the DevDB project.

I've added it to the Downloads tab up top though. And I'll put the xposed repo link on the OP.

update on my test, works great on my Sprint Galaxy S5 with blisspop 6.0 rom with the pioneer 4100nex. The first time I tried, AA seemed to have froze when I tapped Spotify, removed the usb and replugged it back in, but the module didnt seem to work, it only allowed 6 taps. On my 2nd drive, it worked great scrolling through my entire playlist when I was in movement
