    2014 Q5 - any way to get Android Auto?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Recently used a car with Android Auto and had absolute major jealousy. Would love to find a way I could better use android auto in my car!

    1. Get a dash mount and just use my phone up above the MMI screen more often. It could work, but isn't ideal with a cable sticking out the side and the smaller screen.

    2. Get a cheap-but-decent android tablet and use it for android auto - maybe even wifi to my phone hotspot, but that wouldn't be ideal because it wouldn't have things like my spotify/podcasts downloaded. Would be a more "permanent" solution and a bigger screen

    Is there any retrofit/other type of integration option? I've got the MMI plus w/ navigation option.

    Look into xcarlink, there is also a guy in the B8 forums (I believe you are on B8.5 Chassis and electronics should be same?) who successfully installed an android tablet permanently and integrated it with the car.

    I just did one in a Q5. If you have the concert radio you must have an external remote. The symphony radio do not requre an external remote but I do not have them ready for sale yet since many Q5 have the radio in the trunk. They are still in testing. - iPod iPhone & Aux Specialists - Radio Replacement Specialists
