Android Auto on Raspberry Pi
Step 1: Install Raspbian Pixel
First you will need to download Raspbian Pixel Desktop version.
Now we will need a piece of software called etcher to write the image onto our SD card and USB Storage device.
Step 2: Check for updates
It is always a good idea to check for updates even if it is a freshly installed OS.
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade
Step 3: Compiling
this is the point where a lot of waiting occurs…. we will now need to download the install script from my github
open up a terminal and type
$ git clone https://github.com/novaspirit/androidauto_rpi_install
now we need to change over to that directory
$ cd androidauto_rpi_install
in order to execute the install.sh script we need to change permissions to allow it to execute.
$ chmod +x install.sh
now we can install android auto
this will take about 30 mins or so
Step 4: Connect your phone
once everything is completed you will be presented with an screen. at this point you need to connect your phone to your raspberry pi.
