Software List

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

$ git clone   https://github.com/novaspirit/androidauto_rpi_install

now we need to change over to that directory

$ cd androidauto_rpi_install

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

$ chmod +x install.sh<br>

now we can install android auto

$ ./install.sh

Step 3: Connect Your Phone

after 30 mins or so of waiting you are now ready to connect your phone to your raspberry pi.

    When it reaches 26% of Building cxx object it apparently blocks and no further progress.
    Any ideas?

    I ran in to this on a Pi3B+. It is running out of memory. I moved the card to a Pi4 2GB and it worked fine. I suspect that i could move the sim card back to the Pi3B+ now and everything would work.

    For some reason it is not working, at the end i'm getting
    "./install.sh: line 47: /home/pi/openauto/bin/autoapp: no such file or directory"
    it also shows some warnings during install :(
    any idea what could go wrong? (did that couple of times, with same effect)

    Putting in a larger card just delayed the inevitable. Same error, but much later.

    I ran into the same thing and found that the 5GB root partition on my 8GB SDcard had run out of space. I ended up using a larger SD Card and that error went away

    I run into the same errors whether using the Git repository in this instructable or the OpenAuto Git repository directly. Hopefully the project gets sorted out quickly as this is something I really want to implement.

    Question 3 years ago

    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?

    Question 3 years ago on Step 3

    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?
