Android Auto with 8" touch screen

Wed Sep 20, 2017 1:20 pm

Hi everyone,

I am looking to install a Raspberrypi 3 in my car to use with Android Auto. I currently have a ZTE k85 8" tablet in there but with the battery it gets very hot on sunny days so I have turned to the Raspberrypi as a better solution.

I have looked and looked and can't find a 8" 16x9 touch screen that will hook up to the pi. Does anyone know of anything out there?

Thanks,
- Nathan

How do you plan to get Android Auto working on a raspberry pi?
