MC2 Post 2014 Getting started with Android Auto






From:    http://www.androidcentral.com




Android is everywhere. In your pocket. On your wrist. Occasionally (and unfortunately) on your face. In your living room. Even in your kitchen. And now Android is in your car. In 2014 Google announced Android Auto. And in 2015 it's become a reality.

 



Android Auto actually runs on your phone (Android 5.0 Lollipop and up), not your car stereo head unit. That means your phone is doing the heavy lifting — and using your data — and then pushing the Android Auto user interface to the display. There's a required separate Android Auto app, and Google Play Services does a lot of work here as well. 

You plug your phone into the car via a standard 

microUSB cable ... and that's it.

It (mostly) just works.



Just a minute......



Since I'm not a Fan of Lollipop 5.1 yet, and I have to say:


-------------------------------------

"Hold your horses Moondog."

Google has been struggling for 5 months Trying to get Lollipop to work on their Flagship Nexus legacy (older) devices and have so far struck out.  So with that I say: "Your mileage may vary on usefulness..."

You can now send directions and notes to your phone 
via Google search


Sending info from your desktop to your Android phone 
is just a Google search away

If your Android device is updated and has the right settings enabled (see this help article for details  Link:  https://support.google.com/websearch/answer/6128427 ),  you can simply type "send a note to my phone" or "send directions to my phone" directly into the search bar. Doing so will open up a little Google Now-style card that will let you type in your note or specify the directions that you're looking for. Google will then send the data to your phone as a notification. Other than directions or notes, you can also send reminders, set an alarm, or instantly find the location of your phone directly from the Google search bar on your desktop.

 


The new feature can be seen as an extension of Google's 
already-great syncing between its Chrome desktop browser 
and its Android operating system.

IF you Can't fix-it Department:

Can't MAKE lollipop 5.1 Work on the Nexus 7 tablet?

Let's discontinue it, hmmmmmmmmm.
