How to get Android Auto on any car for just RM 20!

Trust us when we say Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity are make-or-break features when it comes to buying a new car in Malaysia. But not everyone of us can go after a new car in this economic climate, so well show you the next best thing - getting Android Auto to work on the car you already own. I installed a relatively cheap (~RM 300) Android-based touchscreen headunit in my 2003 Toyota Vios, and this guide will help you get Android Auto running on something similar installed in your

Why your next car should come with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay

I remember the first time I tried Android Auto – it was back in 2016 with the debut of the all-new tenth-generation Honda Civic. I plugged my phone via USB into the Civic, went through a few confirmation screens on my phone and started Android Auto itself.Android Auto, as how Google envisioned it, is their answer to bridging smartphones and in-car infotainment, allowing drivers to enjoy a tailored Google experience while driving. In case you’re wondering, Android Auto is strictly lim

FAQ: Is auto start-stop bad for your car?

Auto Start-Stop is a feature most of us despise. Cars like the Perodua Myvi and Perodua Bezza have this feature. With its jerky starts, a simple manoeuvre like the three-point-turn feels clumsy and unfamiliar. And with a belt-driven compressor, cool air stops blowing when the feature kicks in. The simple solution for most of us then, is to just turn it off.While some people would rather have sweaty pits to save the environment, the majority couldn’t be arsed to have the engi

It is no surprise that I am a strong believer of Android Auto – it encompasses everything you could possibly ask for in an infotainment system, including voice command, navigation, and music streaming.There's no need to fawn over the Proton X70's voice command, which we have to add, doesn't come with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.
