Start up upon Bluetooth connection

To work around the Android Auto walled garden, can you please add the option to start the navigation app as soon as a specific Bluetooth (car-we pick ourselves) device. In this manner the app will be automatically started letting us to easily switch to Go (and back to Android Auto) via android active apps menu, bypassing the Android Auto limitation. We can then easily switch between the two from then onwards.

    Aware of third party IT people apps. I was suggesting tomtom reusing the same functionality already present in their speedcam app - something anyone can easily comprehend and use and built in into the app.

    Hi @dmarkovina

    Welcome to the Community! Indeed our Speed camera/AmiGO app has AutoStart functionality in it and I think this will be a good addition to Go Navigation app as well. I'll log this as a feature request for our product team.

    Thanks, lampard
