Android Auto is started from the app view. After Android Auto has been started once, the application will be started automatically the next time the device is connected. Automatic start can be deactivated under settings.
When using map navigation via Android Auto there is no guidance in the driver display or head-up display, but only in the centre display.
The Android Auto apps can be controlled via the centre display, a mobile phone, or with the steering wheel's right-hand keypad (applies to certain functions). It is also possible to control Android Auto using voice control so that you can focus on the road. A long press on the steering wheel button starts voice recognition control and a short press deactivates.
