It turns out even the oldest R-Link consoles have Android Auto support, though disabled. It takes some work to enable it but it is very doable. Need to drop a few huge thank-yous for people involved and I really hope I am not forgetting key players:
- Cedric Paille for making and maintaining DDT4all, a wonderful CLIP like tool for tons of cars Renault;
- The guy who wrote the instruction on goeingelectric.de, which again is based on a posting on cliowelt.de;
- SpeakEV user “Tooney”, who tested and compiled this very detailed English version.
More on this soon. I made the required cable last week and just installed the required software on Ubuntu. I will try to do the procedure today.
PS: Any Android Auto developers out there? Please comment if we can meaningfully incorporate some of it in CanZE.
