    I would love to be able to step into my car, start it up, and have Android Auto launch without having to pull my phone from my pocket and plug in the USB cable. My hope is that a simple bluetooth (or WiFi) to USB receiver/dongle will do the trick, but somehow, I'm betting that is just too simple of a solution to actually work. My hunch is that bluetooth doesn't have enough throughput to be practical, or there's some sort of hindrance that I'm not aware of that makes this impossible without it being specifically written into Android Auto's coding. Please, tell me my hunch is wrong!

    I don't know, but if you figure out how to make this happen, please share the secret!

    There is no way AA would work over bluetooth, not enough bandwidth. AA could theoretically work over wifi but there is no implementation for this now or planned.

    If someone were to plug in a Wifi-USB dongle onto the USB port that normally receives the USB connection from the phone, how difficult would it be for someone to write a program makes the USB port on the dongle mimic the USB output of the phone?
