Android Auto - Google's attempt of improving voice navigation.

Google on Thursday announced that Android Auto is officially ready for the consumers. According to the company, Pioneer is the first manufacturer to release Android Auto-compatible Head units.

If you own an Android smartphone powered by v5.0 or above, you can now pick up one of Pioneer’s Android Auto head units, install the Android Auto app from Google Play and enjoy Android Auto in your car.

The Android Auto app will allow you to listen to music, navigate using Google Maps, and a few other functions we’ve known about for awhile now. If you’re interested, here’s the full app description from the Play Store:
  • Free turn-by-turn navigation with Google Maps
  • Hands-free phone and messaging
  • Get weather, traffic, commute information and more from Google Now
  • Listen to your music and playlists with your built-in stereo system
  • Features from supported applications
Android will be available on Ford, Audi, Suzuki, Hyundai, Chevrolet, Fiat, Honda etc. Although no Indian car manufacturer has tied up with Android for this project.
