What car/head units support Android Auto?
See https://www.android.com/auto/compatibility/

Android Auto wireless connectivity
According to the Google Android Auto support page, Android Auto works using USB or 5GH wifi. Bluetooth is not supported.

No manual map zoom
Android Auto users can now use the zoom buttons to zoom in and zoom out of the map. For it to work, you will need to have installed the latest version of AmiGO as well as Android Auto version 6.7 and above.

For touch screen head units, you can pan and fling the map as well as double tap to zoom in. For multi-touch enabled devices, using pinch action to zoom in and zoom out the map is also supported. For non-touch devices—depending on the model—you can zoom in, zoom out and pan the map using the rotary controls.

Speed limit/speedometer has disappeared on the Android Auto screen
For the speedometer to reappear, don’t touch anything on the screen for 10 seconds (touchscreen users). If your device uses rotary controls, lose the focus on the action buttons (deselect everything on the screen) and the speedometer will show on the screen.

AmiGO not found on head unit
Make sure that the Android Auto app version is 6.1 or higher. The Android Auto app doesn't consistently recognise newly installed apps. It might help if you restart the phone after installing or updating AmiGO and reconnect to the head unit. Some users have seen the app get listed after waiting for 24 hours.

Blank map/blue screen all the time
Check if you have AdGuard, Blokada or any other adblocker installed. Go to the settings in the Ad blocking app and remove AmiGO. AmiGO does not advertise to you. However, some adblockers block essential services that we need to make the app work.

Blank map/blue screen when the App is started from head unit.
On RedMi or XiaoMi devices, check the following setting:
  • Make sure app auto start is allowed. e.g. XiaoMi - Open Security app > Permissions > Auto-start. Enable "Autostart" for AmiGO.
  • Check the "Show on Lock Screen" Permission is enabled. Apps > Permissions > Other Permissions > AmiGO > Show on Lock screen.
  • Enable Display popup screen when app is running in background

I can’t zoom in when choosing a route
Unfortunately, this is a limitation from Google and isn’t possible right now. However, when driving without a planned route and after choosing your route, you are able to zoom in.

No switch for 2D-3D / stopping route / mute
Touch the screen once to bring up the menu on the top right of the screen.
