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 worked to implement Android AutoTM smartphone hands-free capability in many of our vehicles.

Android Auto is a simple and smart way to utilize your Android smartphone in your GMC truck or crossover. As part of the new phone integration features available on select GMC IntelliLink infotainment systems, Android Auto enables Android smartphone users to access certain apps and functions via the vehicle’s infotainment system touchscreen or Android Auto voice commands.

This system builds off of the features smartphone users rely on most. Android Auto is built around Google Maps, Google Now and Google’s voice recognition capabilities, along with a growing number of 3rd party apps available through the Google Play Store, including a variety of streaming media services and podcast players. A full list of supported apps is available at Android.com/auto.

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

Key features of Android Auto include the following:

  • Home Screen: Android Auto 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 Maps 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 Auto 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, and more.
  • Music: Your favorite tunes—to go! Access and stream over 30 million songs, custom playlists and more with Google Play Music.
  • 3rd Party Apps: Android Auto 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 www.android.com/auto

Android Auto is available in the following 2017 and 2018 GMC vehicles:

  • 2018 Terrain
  • 2017 and 2018 Acadia
  • 2017 and 2018 Yukon/ Yukon XL/ Yukon Denali
