Android Auto is Google's solution for bringing the power of your smartphone to the relatively dumb nature of vehicle infotainment. Basically you're using your phone to broadcast a new user interface onto your car's touchscreen, thus bringing the full power of Android 5.x Lollipop to one of the most-used screens you'll ever own.
CarPlay is the smarter, safer in-vehicle interface to operate your iPhone. Voice control to get directions, make phone calls, listen to voice mail, send/ receive messages and select music in a way that keeps you focused on the road ahead.
Available for the AVH-X8850 BT
