2017 Maserati Models To Feature Android Auto
For a while now, Google has listed Maserati as a car brand that is compatible with Android Auto. However, any listings from the Italian car manufacturer has has been kept in the dark until very recently. The public can now say for certain that the feature from Google is arriving with three Maserati 2017 units.
The Crowned Units
According to Android Headlines, these units are the 2017 Levante crossover, 2017 Ghibli and 2017 Quattroporte - the latter two of which are sedan units. The concept was first teased over the summer, with the help of the Quattroporte. In essence, the car was stripped down to its bare minimum during the Google I/O. The search engine giant added some 4K displays to the unit, leaving the entire car to run on Android 7.0 Nougat.
When The Units Hit The Market
No official date has been provided by either company at this point. However, according to Android Police, it is likely that Android Auto will not actually hit the units until 2018.
The Benefits Of Android Auto
Basically, Android Auto allows users to extend the features of their android device to the vehicle itself. As such, drivers can navigate with the help of Google Maps as opposed to installing a separate GPS provider. Theoretically, the screen found in the center of the unit will display the Google map.
Users will also get the option to use the steering wheel controls via Android Auto and the other applications that the feature supports. This includes music players or steemers like Spotify and Google Play Music.
Android Auto In Other Units
The feature from Google is already available in a roster of other vehicles that are in the market. Furthermore, car manufacturers are updating older vehicle models in order to make them compatible with Android Auto. Meanwhile, Audi's 2017 A5 Couple and 2017 R8 are also in part of the list, as well as Chevrolet's Cruze hatchback.
