Ultimate Android Auto Experience: The best Android accessories for your car

The best Android Auto experience will transform your driving. Find the best Android accessories for your vehicle to improve your driving experience and provide you with seamless connectivity, entertainment, and navigation while you're on the road. 


Android Auto represents a major push by Google into the automotive industry, not everyone needs or wants a new automobile. The good news is that your automobile can now have at least some of the mobile experience thanks to a wide variety of accessories.

The best way to get Android Auto in an older vehicle without an in-dash head unit is through a third-party unit. Since they all support wired or wireless Android Auto, Pioneer and its Nex range of infotainment systems can help in this situation.

  • Pioneer AVH-W4400NEX:

The AVH-W4400NEX is one of the better head units in terms of price and features. The AVH-W4400NEX has a seven-inch WVGA (800 x 480) touch display and supports wired or wireless Apple CarPlay for iPhone users. A built-in HD radio tuner, support for Miracast, 1.5A output to devices, and assistance with FLAC files up to 192kHz/24-bit are also provided.

The outdated resistive display is a major drawback. The AVH-W4400NEX is available for slightly around $454 if you don’t mind that. The in-dash head unit, a backup camera, and a magnetic phone mount are all available for $509.

  • Kenwood Excelon DMX706S:

Kenwood also produces a large variety of Android Auto head units if you’re seeking a Pioneer substitute. One that jumps out is the Excelon DMX706S, which Kenwood unveiled at the beginning of the year.

The DMX706S supports Apple CarPlay and has a 6.95-inch WVGA (800 x 480) resistive touch display. Keep in mind before you buy that wireless capabilities are not mentioned with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. Two camera connections, a USB connector with a 1.5A output, and FLAC and WAV file support up to 192 kHz/24-bit are other features of the head unit.

  • Roav DashCam C2 Pro:

Anker’s NightHawk Vision technology and 1080p video recording are both supported by the C2 Pro for better video recording at night. The f/2.0 aperture of the Sony Starvis sensor allows it to see four lanes of traffic well. While loop recording allows the camera to record over previously recorded video, GPS logging keeps track of the camera’s most recent location.

Finally, using the Roav app, you may wirelessly link the C2 Pro to your phone. You may view, download, share, and remove any recorded video using the app.

The C2 Pro is not the cheapest dash cam you can purchase, costing $149.99. Roav even provides less expensive options, including the DashCam S1 and DashCam Duo. The C2 Pro, on the other hand, has enough functionality to make up for its greater price.

  • Yi Smart Dash Cam:

The Yi Smart Dash Cam from Xiaomi includes an Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS). The technology can measure the distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you and will alert you if you are about to veer from your lane.

The Yi Smart Dash Cam may also be connected to your phone via an app to view live video or replay recordings.

The Yi Smart Dash Cam, which costs about $49.99, offers capabilities that are unusual for products in this price range. When you add the 2.7-inch touch screen and a maximum 2,304 x 1,296 at 30 frames per second video resolution, you get a camera that is incredibly affordable.
