Starting a new thread because there are a lot of articles on Wireless Android Auto, but none of them compare all of them on the same page. The idea of this thread is to put all of them on the same page with links so they are easy to find.
Going wireless is the norm. Whether or not it’s more efficient, it’s more comfortable, less messy, and easy. Easy, isn’t it? In most cases, yes, but it’s not easy to find a way to go wireless with Android Auto (AA). Even in their most expensive cars, most car makers don’t offer wireless AA. To connect, you need a wire or some sort of dongle. Even though it’s not a completely wireless option because the dongle needs to be wired to your infotainment system, it saves you the trouble of having to connect and disconnect the wire to your phone every time you get into the car.
