Android Auto - Apps on Google Play
Phone Calls, Listen to music and Navigate: The apps displayed on the touchscreen are immediately recognizable and ready for use. You can call, use Google Maps, Waze, or Apple Maps to navigate, listen to music via Spotify, listen to podcasts, and use many other apps. Everything you do on your phone, but without holding it.

You can also use Siri or Google Assistant to set a new navigation route, for instance. With speech-to-text, you can even have WhatsApp messages read to you and send text messages. All this while keeping both hands on the steering wheel and your eyes on the road.

Your phone’s settings allow you to select which apps you want to use for Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. However, not all apps are suitable for this purpose in terms of road safety.
