So if you say have the car radio on and Waze navigation running do the navigation audio voice directions cut in / over the radio?

yes all voice stuff from AA cuts over audio (whatever source)

Cleared the cache and data, even uninstalled AA and reinstalled the APK for version 4.5.592854 and still get the same ?

No option for "Try the new Android Auto - For car screen only. Update now or wait for automatic update, coming soon" ?


Guess I'll have to wait until it's an official launch ?

It'll be a staged rollout - Google will decide when you get it and flick the switch on their end. it likely won't require an app update

My Samsung Galaxy S9 updated about an hour ago and I am now running the new version of AA v4.5.592854. On holiday at the moment but will be giving it a go on the drive home!

Just got the new interface pop up on mine suddenly. Galaxy S9 with EE.

Have to say, looks really slick.

I've been pondering why I didn't seem to have the new Android Auto on my phone despite seemingly having the version number that supports it.

I discovered that the secret to getting the new Android Auto on my phone was to go into the settings on AA (not through the car, you can't make setting changes in the car!) and toggle a switch to enable the new interface.

Its quite nice I think.

The only annoying thing is that when you get out of the car, the thing is still running on the handset and you have to exit car mode to get your phone back... I've read others talk about that bug, maybe its going to be fixed soon.

Hmm, haven't noticed that. If it's not a setting then that does sound like a bug, sounds like it only affects some phones.

I did the same this morning fredgroves and think the look is much better. I also like how they have added the time elapsed/remaining for Spotify and Amazon Music tracks as this was a minor annoyance for me.

I didn't notice the car mode bug but will keep an eye out.
