    Looks like google is about to update the Android Auto App to support wireless projection. This would be great for when you have multiple stops to make and you don't have to keep un-plugging and plugging your phone back in.

    Looks like its using WIFI to do it. The 10th gen civics seem to have WIFI built in to them wonder if this will work or will we have to wait forever(never) for honda to update the head unit.

    Don't think it will work with our cars. Google actually announced several months ago that this feature was coming, but said it would only work for supported head units. It made it sound like it was something that had to have been built in to the head unit and not upgradeable. I think if it were to work with existing equipment, it would need to be in a vehicle that has a wi-fi hotspot, which Civics don't have. I'm just speculating though.

    As the Honda head unit is basically WiFi-capable (software updatabale over WiFi), I hope a future update would add the OTA Android Auto capability...

    Don't EVER expect an official update to wireless AA.

    Although, we might be able to "hack" it to work in the future. Once your phone supports it (Android P or whatever), then maybe we could modify the head unit to allow it. Anything is possible.
