How does Android Auto wireless work?

The most important thing determines the wireless connection between the car and Android Auto is the question whether our vehicle supports this standard. It is worth to make sure in advance and check this information on the software producer’s website.

If so, the answer to the question of how to use Android Auto wirelessly is simple: just go into the connection settings, find the network name that our vehicle generates and connect to it. Now you just need to turn on the Android Auto app and wait a while for the data to sync.

What do you need for wireless Android Auto to work?

Wireless connection requires compatibility. You don’t have to worry about the availability of a WiFi module in your smartphone, but its presence in the car is absolutely crucial to the success of the whole process and you need to keep that in mind.

What if the car doesn’t have wireless connectivity and we still want to use Android Auto? No need to worry. The only thing we have to do is to go for “wired” connectivity, which means connecting the device with an appropriate cable to the USB or microUSB port, depending on the type of vehicle. The rest of the process remains the same: we turn on the Android Auto application, accept the necessary terms and after a while we enjoy the functions of this tool on the road.
