只需RM 20,什么车都能用Android Auto!

相信我们,在马来西亚,Android Auto和Apple CarPlay连接功能常常影响是新车销量的关键因素。但在目前的经济形势下,并不是每个人都买得起新车。所以,这次我们为大家带来了另一个好东西——为你现在驾的车子追加Android Auto功能。在我自己的2003 Toyota Vios上,我安装了一个比较便宜(~RM 300)的Android系统触控荧幕中控,而只要你的车子上用的也是类似的中控,那么跟着下面的指南做就OK了!不是所有的Android中控都支持Android Auto吗?这是一个常见的误区,采用Android系统的多媒体中控与原生搭载Android Auto功能的中控是不同的。一些无良商家可能会用“Android Auto”作为噱头,但只要去制造商的网站查一下,你就能知道真相了。看到这两款中控的价格差距了吗?下面的那一款采用的是Android系统原生支持Android Auto的中控(也就是不像本次指南一样需要其它app),通常都要比普通的Android系统中控要贵。在说明了这一点之后,让我们继续下文。第一步:在中控
