AA Wireless is finally bringing its wireless Android Auto adapter to Amazon—at least in the US. The device that brings wireless Android Auto to any vehicle supporting the wired version has been available in limited quantity since it was launched on Indiegogo a couple of years ago.
- AA Wireless enables wireless Android Auto in many older cars.
- AA Wireless adapter is available from Amazon for $89.
The AA Wireless dongle enables you to use Android Auto wirelessly. There are many ways how users can benefit from the wireless version of Android Auto. For instance, you can just use wireless payment systems on your phones in a drive-thru without minding the connected cable. Or you can hand your phone to somebody in the backseat without having to disconnect the cable. Did we mention, there's no cable dangling around in your car?
Moreover, the wireless Android Auto operates the same as the wired version including on-screen navigation, music playback, and messaging. Google Assistant is also available for hands-free control.
AA Wireless works with any Android smartphone running on Android 9.0 or newer. You also need to check the compatibility of your car or head unit for wired Android Auto. Google's Android Auto website has a list of supported stereo models and vehicles.
