Google Announces Google Maps Beta Update, Major Android Auto Improvement Likely

"As many users found out the hard way, the voice guidance in Google Maps is sometime broken in Android Auto for a reason that is yet to be determined. More recently, someone has come up with a fix that essentially comes down to disabling voice audio over Bluetooth in Google Maps, pretty much forcing the voice guidance to be directed to your car’s speakers through Android Auto.

While this isn’t confirmed yet, it looks like this new beta of Google Maps finally resolves the problem, restoring voice guidance in Android Auto for everyone."

New Version of Android Auto Released

Too bad, the ability to travel is severely limited. So can't really test it out. Sigh, I suppose we could do it locally. But that would not be fun!

The Latest Version of Android Auto Brings Major Performance Improvements

"Google has released a new update for Android Auto a few days ago, bringing the app to version 5.3. Of course, no changelog was provided, so it was up to users to determine what’s been improved in this new build."

Google must not be pushing this new version out through the Play Store yet. My version is 5.2.501053. When I bring it up in Play Store it does not show that an update is available.
