Whether it’s sending a message to family, searching for a new restaurant destination, or simply finding your way through traffic, your AndroidTM smartphone is an incredibly versatile and powerful tool. At GMC, we know the importance of staying connected on the go – which is why we’ve implemented Android™ Auto compatibility1 to allow hands-free smartphone capability in many of our vehicles.

Android™ Auto1 is a simple and smart way to utilize your AndroidTM smartphone in your GMC truck or SUV. As part of the new phone integration features available on select GMC Infotainment Systems®2, Android™ Auto1 enables AndroidTM smartphone users to access certain apps and functions via the vehicle’s GMC Infotainment Systems®2 touchscreen or Android™ Auto1 voice commands.

Each system builds off of the features smartphone users rely on most. Android™ Auto1 is built around Google MapsTM, Google NowTM and Google’s voice recognition capabilities, along with a growing number of third party apps available through the Google PlayTM store, including a variety of streaming media services and podcast players. A full list of supported apps is available at

A “Projection” icon on the Infotainment2 screen is visible when a phone is not connected, and then changes to display Android™ Auto1 when a compatible phone is connected via USB3 cable. Android™ Auto1 requires a phone running the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system or above.

Key features of Android™ Auto1 include the following:

  • Home Screen: Android™ Auto1 automatically brings you useful information, like suggested destinations, upcoming appointments, and weather conditions, and organizes it into simple cards that appear just when they're needed.
  • Maps: Let Google MapsTM lead the way. It’s easy to get where you’re going with free voice-guided navigation, live traffic information, lane guidance, and more.
  • Voice: Just say the word—speech technology makes controlling the Android™ Auto1 experience with your voice fast and easy. Send, read, and reply to your text messages hands-free; Make calls, return missed calls, and listen to voicemail – Talk to Google can help you do all these things hands-free, and more.
  • Music: Your favourite tunes — to go! Access and stream over 30 million songs, custom playlists and more with Google Play Music.
  • 3rd Party Apps: Android™ Auto1 will also support additional apps that you’ve downloaded to your Android™ phone for enjoying podcasts, music, radio, messaging, and more. The list of supported apps is available at
