    First time posting, been a fan for a while. I had a rental a few days ago and played around with the android car integration, its pretty cool for the limited amount of apps that currently support it.
    Ya 1 would be a perfect candidate for integration.
    I know the development is pretty much out on paternity leave.... Trust me I can relate. But this would be an awesome feature for YaV1, being able to see it on your cars radio screen is awesome

    Works great with android auto already if you use mirrorcast or have a radio that will mirror the screen

    Great idea. All somebody needs to do is figure out a way to hack into the car's system. I'm sure it can be done.

    There are many hacks "jail breaks" etc. (some are software only some involve hardware) for many new Vehicles that allow mirroring and more.

    But Stock Android Auto and Car Play only allows "approved" apps. Not even Google Maps or Waze is allowed on Car Play (yet anyway).

    Here is an example.

    People use things like Apple TV or Chromcast to mirror their phone then an HDMI to Composite converter because most systems only have Composite inputs.

    Hack into it? There are interfaces out there that can connect to the cars computer. What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

    LockPick was common for Mopar vehicles. Basically, you had the stock head unit, then you could toggle over to the "alternative menu" which allowed for mirroring, multiple cameras as well as live driving feeds, etc.
