    Are saying the Note has that feature?

    You need a head unit that supports it.

    That's a feature of Android P. What makes you think Note 9 has it???

    it's not just a feature of Android P. it's been said that phones on oreo can have it to if the manufacturers update their phones for it. I was in my local car stereo shop today and they were saying they thought the note 9 was on the list

    I didn't know that. Might not be on the 9 just yet, but I am interested in that feature myself. Hope you figure it out.

    We are talking about Android Auto over Bluetooth. You have Android Auto working without plugging in?

    to be clear I'm not talking about android auto working on your phone thru Bluetooth. I'm talking about your cars radio be able to display android auto without having the USB cable.

    If not through Bluetooth nor wire then how do head unit & phone connect for Android Auto?

    it's actually done thru WiFi not Bluetooth from the research I've done.

    Looks like you are correct. And I don't think any oem car units even support it yet. Kenwood is said to have some compatible equipment. Looks like it's not going to do anything for me and my 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Disappointing.

    Sorry to pull this from the depths, but yeah, I believe this feature is currently ONLY available on Pixel devices... =\ Kind of a bummer, as that's one of the reasons I bought my head unit for, but google seems to be locking it down for their flagship devices only for now...

    Not to beat the dead horse. But now that the official Pie is rolling out. has anyone got wireless android auto to work successfully.

    To be clear I don't mean have it launch on your phone. I mean does it connect to your head unit and your head unit display without having to plug it in. preferably looking for someone who has a Kenwood DDX-9905s head unit.

    Was in my car tonight and noticed my Kenwood 9905s receiver had the Android Aluto icon illuminated. My Verizon Note 8 phone was in my pocket, not plugged in. That's the first time I've seen it connect wirelessly. I selected the icon on the receiver and after a brief delay Android Auto did come up and seemed to work without a hitch.

    I have not installed the beta version of Google Play Services, as some have suggested is necessary. My phone is on Android 9, at the current Verizon release. I had the receiver installed in January, and have installed one firmware update from Kenwood. Still, I was unable to connect wirelessly until today. And I didn't have to do anything to make it work, it just started working. Maybe Play Services is out of beta? It would be nice if all of this wasn't a secret. Good luck to all of you - hopefully your connections will suddenly work too.
