It is difficult to imagine how it happened that Android Auto has started to introduce the motorcycles in 2020, and not much earlier. Since the first release of the system it’s been five years…
System Android Auto is now available for Harley-Davidson motorcycles since March of this year. In addition, Honda Gold Wing, too, will have Android Auto (a Japanese tourist was the first motorcycle with Apple CarPlay).
On the Honda Gold Wing system Android Auto is installed as a software update motorcycle (will be available from June this year). System Android Auto allows owners of Android smartphones to connect to the motorcycle music, phone calls, messages.
We can assume that in the near future, other manufacturers of premium cars (e.g., BMW) will catch up and begin to update their system to add Android Auto.
Why technologies such as Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, so long embedded in monopropylene?! The answer to this question is quite trivial. Apple and Google have little interest in cooperation with manufacturers of motorcycles, in terms of Finance and profit potential.
