    Greetings to all,

    I have a question regarding the hardware part of a DMD-T665 Nav Phone.
    Is the device compatible with Android Auto? I’m not referring to DMD2, but to the hardware unit itself. Can I use Waze on it, for example?
    If the USB cable included with the magnetic charger is used, can the device communicate with the motorcycle unit through this cable? I have a motorcycle that supports Android Auto.
    Or do I need to use another USB-C cable connected to the DMD-T665 Nav Phone to enable Android Auto?

    I ask this because I am now using a phone, connected with a USB cable to the motorcycle unit. In this case, with the actual phone, I can have Google Maps or Waze on the motorcycle unit and another application, not supported by Android Auto, on the phone.

    I would like to use gpx tracks on one screen and waze on another screen 🙂 and I would like to use a robust and dedicated unit for something like the DMD-T665 instead of my phone.

    Hello

    The device is compatible with Android Auto but the cradle will only do charging, even if you plug a USB cable to it its only good for charging.

    Sorry about that, if it was me I would just add a wireless Android Auto module to the motorcycle, they are so cheap and work flawless.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Now it’s clear to me, if I want to use Android Auto I have to connect a USB cable directly to the USB-C port on the phone.
    I have a wireless AA device, just like the one in your link, but I’m still having trouble using it with my bike. However, it works flawlessly in my car.

    I just put the order for the DMD unit 🙂
