Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

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.

    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 1 year 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 1 year 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?

    Great work. I was looking for something you could use like this to put it on top of your mirror, so you don’t have to mess up the radio car console(for cars that don’t have a 2 din slot or are user repleasable) you could route power and audio back to your aux input jack of your car audio system and use the bluetooth to answer phone calls. There are some smart mirror for the car but with not to many features or use. I will keep following to see if it comes up as a new project. Cheers.
