    I've been using AA on my phone for a while but the other day I got a new 2019 Ram and it has AA integrated in it. I just set it up and I love it. Navigation and all on my 8.4" touch screen. That is sweet. BTW...Here's my new toy. 6574abc1efe543ea9826124851321ca9_1.jpg

    Thank you. The Uconnect works with Bluetooth. Hands free phone and texts. It seems that AA doesn't work through BT. It only works when I connect with a USB. I only need it when I use maps anyway.

    I think AA only works via USB connection, but could be wrong? Google is supposedly working on an Assistant - Driving Mode feature that will kind of combine AA and Assistant into one true hands free driving feature for Android. It was supposed to rollout this past Summer. Whoops Google!

    I really like the U Connect system in our Cherokee, very nice.

    Keep in mind, the headunit itself also has to support Wireless AA. Not all do. I don't know if the OEM Chrysler radios do or not. But I do know that Kenwood that I got for Christmas (and is being installed as I type this :cool:) will work wirelessly with my Pixel 2.

    The article mentions that most OEM units don't support it but I'm not replacing this stereo just for that. I'll use a USB.

    I got the new headunit installed on Friday and heck Android Auto is pretty cool! At first I couldn't get it recognize my Pixel 2 for wireless AA. Until I realized that I had to go into the AA app setting on my phone and enable "wireless projection" Now its all good!
