Oops. Do not install 2.12.9.4! I posted it to alpha testing and then found bugs. My bad. Google is forcing me to update to much later target versions and that broke a bunch of stuff. What a hassle. I may be getting very close to just abandoning the Play Store at this point. Tons of work for no real value. Whining....

Smart. Very smart. I wish others would do this to. I now have full Android in my dashboard and I love it.

I recently upgraded my car stereo head unit in the Cayman. I thought you might find this install interesting. I now have Google Maps and Waze navigation in the dash, a backup camera and front parking camera, and I can run all the music streaming services like Spotify, Amazon Music, Pandora, etc right in my dash.

I just finished the installation of an Android car stereo in my Porsche Cayman S. Here is a video and my blog of the install: https://jimroal.blogspot.com/2018/08/porsche-cayman-s-car-stereo-head-unit.html

Android 9 now has a feature to manage the media volume for Bluetooth devices eliminating the need for the original feature of A2DP Volume. If you have Android 9, disable the volume adjustment features of A2DP Volume, or just uninstall it.

Here is a post with more details: https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/08/07/android-p-will-remember-individual-volume-levels-bluetooth-device-connect/
