This time, maps gets some love! Here is what's new in v0.2.3: 

- Turn-by-turn directions appear on maps screen (Google and HERE maps only)
- Option to return to AutoMate after navigation has started (Google Maps only)
- Directional arrows for Google Maps navigation
- Bug fixes

It's been a month since the first beta release, and AutoMate has come a long way with everyone's feedback and support. It's only going to get better!

+Kahtaf Alam has done a fantastic job providing an app with similar usability as Android Auto. Auto Mate however can be run on any phone or tablet without an expensive head unit as is the case with AA.

It is something that people have been looking for. Over 20K testers right now.
 
Can't believe we reached over 20,000 testers! Thanks for everyone's feedback and support so far. Update 0.2.2 will be rolling out in a few hours, which includes:

- Option to show/hide status bar
- Option to stop music on exit
- Option to keep screen on only while plugged in
- Car mode can now capture Home button (Premium)
- Bug fixes

With the recent poll regarding which areas to improve, more than half of you said maps. I hear you, and over the next few weeks I'll be focusing more on map improvements. Stay tuned for updates!

Even more of a reason for me to migrate to Linux.

Google is providing Android app developers with tools that allow their apps to run in the Chrome web browser. But you don’t need to be a developer to use Google’s ARC Welder utility: it lets just about anyone run (some) Android apps on Chrome OS, Mac, Windows, or Linux computers. When I first wrote about ARC Welder, I …

An alternative to needing an expensive or hacked head unit for Android Auto. This guy just released the beta of his app that is skinned much like Android Auto and looks pretty promising.

Works on your phone or tablet.

Join the community and give the app a try. It is very early beta.
