Enjoy my guide on getting Android Auto on a CarPlay only supported car system display. You can only achieve this on an AI Box that supports Android 7 such as the older MMB Android 7 or OTTOCAST Carplay AI Box on Amazon US → or Amazon UK →

I found out Android 9 boxes do not support the FREE Android Auto App and also the Headunit Reloaded app $4.99 ( The Android 7 boxes are still selling in various outlets, or second hand on eBay, but be quick as the Android 9 boxes have replaced stock in most places and the Android 7 MMB has been discontinued.

I am not sure why it doesn’t support these apps on the Android 9, when the apps are compatible with Android 9 devices, just not the AI Boxes. You might know of an app that does work, if so let me know and I will try it out.
