I would like to give this a try, but can't get it to work... I'm running Android 6.0.1 on a Samsun S7, and downloaded version 2.0.642704 of the Android Auto APK. When I plug in the USB cable, my phone then toggles over and says it is connected "Your car and phone are now connected via MirrorLink," but I don't see Android Auto on the screen, or under Apps; MirrorLink is grayed out. I did have another map program that I was trying to get to work with MirrorLink several months ago, and it was available under MirrorLink, but then when I uninstalled it (was wondering if it was conflicting with AA), nothing was available under MirrorLink. What am I missing? Thanks.
Edit: I was doing a little research and it seems that it could be either a phone or headunit issue (specifically, compatibility with MirrorLink 1.1). So, I was hoping that one of you that got it to work can tell me if Android Auto shows up on your phone as a MirrorLink application (Settings/More connection Settings/MirrrorLink). Mine does not. I have something called "CarMode Stub," which is a Volkswagen app--not even sure how it got there, but I also don't see a way to remove it. I also downloaded Sygic Car Navigation, and it does show up as "certified" under MirrorLink apps (and triggers MirrorLink to open on the car, but it is the only app shown). So, if Android Auto appears in that list for those of you who got it working, then I think that is the problem with mine--many posts do complain that Samsung phones don't work, for whatever reason.
