    Went for a drive this morning and noticed a really cool thing. Had google maps on full screen and had music on my microSDXC card playing at the same time via the Pulsar app.

    Every time a new song started it showed the track name and artist on the google maps screen for about 10 seconds so as not to obscure google maps.

    Yeah I’m so pleased I bought a microSDXC card now to use in the phone. The head unit itself is pretty basic and Android Auto adds a level of functionality which is worth having.

    I read you can enable it on older head units that don’t support Android Auto from the factory so if yours doesn’t it might be worth looking into it.

    I never listen to the audio these days, except maybe if I'm sat waiting a few minutes for someone, when I just flick through the radio channels looking for a nice tune from my younger days

    The first couple of weeks that I was using Android Auto to display google maps it played Radio 1 in the background automatically.

    Some good tunes were played admittedly but I noticed that in certain places on the island I lost signal, basically the whole of St Ouens bay was a no show.

    Wasn’t enough to put me off but I needed a way to play music instead of using a USB drive so the only real option was microSDXC through a phone plugged into the USB.

    SD was out of the question as it’s SDHC 32GB max and the Tom Tom maps are stored on that anyway the there’s Bluetooth and AUX.

    Bluetooth would be ok but wouldn’t keep the phone charged and AUX an absolute last resort.

    Spent a couple of hours last night and filled my Android's phones internal 16GB storage with apps. I searched for Android Auto in the google play store and downloaded everything I could until the memory was full.

    I now have these apps on my head unit...







    They are mainly internet radio and podcast apps.

    Here’s a good link to all Android Auto apps on the google play store...

    I tried to install as many as possible but ran out of space on my phones internal storage so in the end had to be more judicial about what I installed, deleting some stuff along the way.

    It’s mainly radio stations from around the world and some podcasts so you’ll need a data connection.

    I've noticed a lot of these radio stations won't play outside the USA, I checked this by logging into one of my VPN servers based in the USA and it played fine when it didn't with my UK IP address.

    Now I've just to work out how to setup VPN connections on my Android phone but at least I know its not the radio stations but my location.

    You seem to be getting far more entertainment out of trying to get the technology to work than actually listening to any programmes
