Step 1: Install Raspbian Pixel Desktop

First you will need to download Raspbian Pixel Desktop version.

Step 2: Compiling Android Auto

download the install script from my github

in order to execute the install.sh script we need to change permissions to allow it to execute.

    I want to allow a portion of my screen for Android Auto. I mean half of the screen will display mobile phone projection via AA and half will display native contents of Raspberry Pi. Can I configure it like that?

    Is IT possible to connect pi with analog video output to my build-in nami radio system (citroen c5 2005)? Car has rca input for video and audio. Will IT be usefull with some wireless Mouse or touchpad/keyboard combo? Has anyone tried android auto on analog video?
