Crowdfunded dongle brings wireless Android Auto to more cars

A crowdfunded project aims to add wireless Android Auto to many cars through a USB

Curated via Twitter from Engadget’s twitter account….

Developer Emil Borconi-Szdressy recently launched an Indiegogo campaign (via XDA and 9to5Google) for an AAWireless USB dongle that, as the name implies, adds wireless Android Auto to your existing car.

AAWireless only needs a phone running Android 9 Pie, so this might help you delay a device upgrade if wire-free Android Auto is important.

Although the team is testing “as many cars and head units as possible” and believes it should work with any Android Auto-equipped car, the developers can’t guarantee that support at this stage.

You’ll need a car infotainment system with wired Android Auto support.

While wireless Android Auto will soon be easier to find on phones, it’s another matter for cars.

Still, this could make Android Auto considerably more practical if you’re willing to take a risk.
