I was getting a little frustrated with my Android Auto mainly due to the lack of cogent documentation. So I took my HTC-1 to bed with me last night (where I do my best thinking). I tried different voice commands. When I tried "Navigate to John Smith" it took John Smith from my google contacts and began navigating. I tried another name and it had an issue. So here is my trick, I pre-progam where I am going into my google contacts and give the address a unique name that Android Auto can understand. I didn't want to use "Home" in case my phone is lost or stolen, so I used an easy to discern (and remember) code word. All good.

So, just make sure all your "permissions" are all "allowed" and enjoy the great technological advancement that is Android Auto :)
