You can now download Android Auto directly from Google Play Store on your phone here in South Africa.  No more installing via apkmirror
There are rules, and rules must be followed

Good one, thank you!  Played with this a while ago, from apkmirror, lol. 

It used to detect the bluetooth connection in m car & turn on Android Auto automatically.  Very handy & now with "Ok Google" built-in, no need to look or touch your phone whilst driving.

I can't seem to get it working properly on my daughter's Opel Astra. It connects etc. Is it supposed to project onto the car display.

All you do is connect the phone to your system via USB and android auto is triggered automatically, assuming the infotainment system supports android auto.  Otherwise try to do a software upgrade on your Astra (via the dealer).  There are software glitches from time to time but these have been ironed out over time.

I've been told by the dealer that some samsung phones are a bit glitchy , some setting or the other .... apparently if you take the phone to a reputable cell store they make some changes in the settings that help , and as above connect the phone with a USB cable  and the radio must be android auto compatible .... good luck  :thumbs:
