Key connectivity features :

Designed with safety in mind, Android Auto utilises a simple and intuitive interface to provide navigation, communications, music and more, combined with powerful new voice actions for minimised distraction, so users stay focused on the road. Smartphones running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or newer operating system offer Android Auto and will work with the three Pioneer models. The first time a user connects a compatible smartphone to the receiver, the user will be prompted to download applications required for Android Auto.
