    Loving the new interface. However it's missing the clock screen. For older vehicles this could be an issue.

    And in all that time Toyota would not put Android Auto in their cars and they still new cars don't have it and won't put in older models

    Problem is I'm used to the old interface so now it's confusing.
    At least on a Mazda setup.
    Used to be that I had an easy trigger for voice commands on the knob and now I have to select that.
    I guess I should use the steering wheel trigger.
    But overall I find it more distracting and I don't think they addressed space efficiency.

    Still doesnt stay connected wirelessly. Still no audio notifications. Why isnt there a Home screen that can have the phone, Play music, nav on one screen? Youre Google, your UI/UX team cant come up with something better than this? UI is slightly better at best. How about a friggin decent sized clock somewhwre? This "major redesign" is really weak. I dont always want to JUST see nav or JUST see GPlay. Youre better than this Google. Not only is there no combo "home" type screen, half the audio screen is just black. Wha? How about a single screen with music, phone, and nav? Or music phone and weather? Or just customizable. Why can't I access my whole music library? Why is there still a giant bar that comes down when assistant is working or you use vioce control. Gawdy and ugly ui/ux. I'm venting sorry. It's not 100% bad, it could just be so much better.

    Great review. I've recently jumped ship from Apple to Google, but I HATED the old Android auto. Hopefully this is better. Apple carplay was so much more intuitive, especially when using Siri vs assistant, plus it looked so much better as well.

    Apple fanboys say it's a copy because of app launcher. They own icons and launchers as concept 😅 They copy the widget home screen from original Android Auto. At least Google add routines and icons that are voice actions and shortcuts. I hope 3 pane be available through settings toggle to "smaller" screens not only to new super wide.

    Anyone know when the Samsung S9 will get this update?

    Assistant still drops down and steals half your screen. So dumb. I've missed turns by having text conversations and nav being blocked by a massive bar that does nothing. Why can't they just have the little microphone change to the icon?
