Android Auto Split Screen
« on: February 03, 2023, 12:58:38 PM »
I've just seen a post of the new 11G Civic displaying Android Auto in the new split screen mode. Looks useful to display Google Maps and other useful info at the same time.

I don't suppose we can achieve that as I've not seen any setting..
Let's be careful out there !

...Isn't that just an impending Android Auto update away? I didn't realise it would be car screen dependant!

I've just checked the AA version when it was introduced and that was 8.2xxx and I'm on version 8.6xxx

I have a feeling it may require a headunit software update.

Nope. It's a server-side setting at Google, which is being drip fed out account-by-account. Its codename was "Project Coolwalk".

It appeared on my phone on Wednesday and "just works" with my 2021 Mk4.

Thanks

So it should come in sooner or later.

Can't check as I'm at home and the car is in the daughter's garage 30 miles away. Last time I came home it was -4C and there had been quite a few shunts the previous night ..... got the train.

I've still got my S10 which is maxed out on Android 12.

I did get a AA update last week and I'll be driving back tomorrow, I'll see.

No rush though, quite happy with full screen Maps. I've set my phone AA setting to LHD so the map is on my side with the embedded info bar on the left.

You can still change the screen to show the maps in full screen which I do if I'm going somewhere unknown.

Yes, I read that, not got it yet.

I wonder how it's being rolled out, presumably not by AA version ?

Iíve just bought a  Google Pixel 6A that is running Android 13 and the split screen is on android auto. My previous 3a wouldnít upgrade past version 11 and that didnít have it.

I've been doing a Sherlock on split screen and it comes with Android Auto version 8.8.630404

My last AA update was 11th Jan and was 8.6.625054

I try to figure out but no luck. I give up for now because it's snowing outside and I don't wanna go to car again :)

Version isn't important people using it with 8.6 or even older.
There is a hidden developer menu in AA
Coolwalk didn't work but I found my wife's phone problem she can use wireless AA now.
That's a big win for me
Cheers!
