Android Auto Now Works With More Smartphones
Jul 14, 2015

Since Android Auto first became available in March, more smartphones have been deemed compatible with the new car radio system.

Pioneer reports that any phone running Android Lollipop with the exception of the LG G3 is now compatible with Pioneer’s Android Auto units.

At launch, some key phone models, even though they were running Lollipop, were still incompatible, causing some confusion on the sales floor.

For example, many Verizon phones did not work with Android Auto.

It turns out that some of the wireless carriers had removed software that was necessary for Android Auto compatibility.  Since then Google has worked with the carriers to restore that compatibility, again with the exception of the LG G3.

Pioneer’s Ted Cardenas notes that by the fall of next year, all phones on the market will ship with Lollipop, creating a wide base of potential customers for Android Auto.

Android’s share of the US market stands at 52.1 percent versus Apple’s iOS share of 43.5 percent, according to the latest comScore figures.

Shawn, Mike and the guys at Car Tunes can do anything! Plus, they are knowledgeable, patient and do what ever it takes to satisfy you. I have been taking my business to them for the past 10 years years, they have installed systems in my trucks, cars, boat and my classic 1971 Olds 442. Hell they even fixed my door lock on the 442, I could not find the part so they fabricating the part. These guys are fast, reasonable, and above all else, the best in the area. If you need to make a return trip (which is very rare), there is no hassle or run around like so many other stores do, they just fix it. Period, these guys do it right - THE FIRST TIME! I am not big on referrals, but have never thought twice about sending family, friends and even my customers to them. I can't recommend them highly enough if you want good, honest and personal service take your business to Car Tunes.
