Android Auto is going wireless for 2018

Android Auto is going wireless for 2018”

Android Auto has been around for a while now and allows users to connect their Android smartphone to compatible infotainment systems in cars, along with some aftermarket audio systems.

JVC Kenwood has announced its exhibits for this year's CES show, and they include some of the first out-of-the-box wireless Android Auto head units from a major manufacturer, among other exciting developments.

The Kenwood brand will also have high-end AV multimedia receiver featuring an HD screen and wireless connectivity for Android Auto along with wired connectivity for CarPlay.

Wireless Android Auto support will enable you to access all of the features of this interface without having to plug your phone into the receiver.

Not a lot of details or specifications have been released regarding the receivers.

For the longest time, users still had to physically connect their Android devices to the vehicle head unit - either with a standard USB cable or a dock - for Android Auto to work correctly.

Android Auto is shedding its wires for 2018, with vehicle infotainment specialist JVC Kenwood preparing to showcase compatible wireless vehicle tech at CES 2018. There will most likely be two models for these new vehicle head units, and one of them will have "wireless connectivity for Android Auto" as a feature. It does mention that the unit will have a 1280×720 resolution LCD display with CarPlay support and "wireless connectivity for Android Auto". We'll see what Kenwood has for us in the next few days at CES 2018. The two companies will also be showing off entire new ranges of Bluetooth headphones, and professional 4K cameras, with models running the range from top of the line to light duty commercial use. A three-high stack of speakers utilizing ribbons for sound output will also be at the booth.
