Big news for Android Auto
Weather & Radar now on the road!
It's official: Introducing Weather & Radar for Android Auto!
Weather & Radar is the first integrated full weather app for Android Auto, and we cannot wait to be your weather companion on the road.
All you need is an Android smartphone, a car that supports Android Auto, and the latest Weather & Radar app version 2023.3.1 downloaded.
Simply connect your phone to your car, select the app icon and the WeatherRadar will appear on your car display screen.
Split-screen mode is also available if your car display supports wide resolution, so you can see the weather along your route whilst navigating.
The WeatherRadar will display the current satellite and precipitation type, while the RainfallRadar, which you can select via the layers icon, will only show you precipitation intensity, both of which are zoomable and will update automatically with your location.
The full precipitation type key can be found inside our mobile app, with blue indicating rain, pink snow and salmon freezing rain. Yellow circles represent lightning strikes. Temperature is also displayed.
It's also available for Android Automotive, and just in case you thought we forgot about you, Apple users, CarPlay integration is in the making too. We have lots of big ideas, so keep your eyes peeled and let us know what you think!
