Well here is some pretty cool news from the automotive world regarding our favorite OS. Hyundai just announced that all 2015 Sonatas with the Navigation package (which I would assume is extra) can now get Android Auto installed! Once installed, it adds an "Android Auto" button to the normal Hyundai entertainment/navi system. Press that button and the car blocks out your phone forcing you to use the in-dash system to send a text or play music. Being Android people around here, we know how well Google Now could handle this and it makes a lot of sense from a safety standpoint.
The thing that really kind of blew my mind is that Hyundai is offering it to people even if you already bought a 2015 Hyundai Sonata. You can just login to the Hyundai website, download a file to a USB memory stick and plug that in to your radio.
"Would you like to install Android Auto?"
This surprises me because so many car companies won't let you do any tinkering to your car without a dealer visit. That's pretty cool, Hyundai.
