Android Auto is an extension of our phones on the screen of our cars for music, notifications and, of course, for navigation. That means we don’t have to constantly touch our phone when we’re in the car (and we shouldn’t!). In fact, it is not even necessary to touch the mobile to save the location where you have parked the car.

Because if it has ever happened to you, you understand how desperate this situation can be: you parked your car while you were rushing to your destination, and when you want to return home… you don’t remember where it is. Previously, it was typical to use your cell phone to save the location, but if you have Android Auto, the car will do it for you.
