Android Auto, Maps and Music

Hi all,

I'm due a 68 Plate Sport within the week and want a heads up on something:

I like the idea of using the Android Auto and Google Maps for Nav, but a separate USB stick of MP3s or DAB for music.

Can these be used at the same time or does selecting Android Auto means I'm stuck with playing music from the phone?

Many thanks

No you can use Google for navigation and any music source.

Got it working and its fab, the Google maps map i'm used to on my phone is so much clearer than the Garmin which I felt overloaded you with info. Like how it still displays the next turn in the Driver display screen too, I wasn't sure it would.

Just a word of advice to those with a Samsung S8 with a Type C usb socket, those little buggers are brilliant pocket fluff collectors! I found the connection was very iffy until I took a needle and removed a fair amount of very compacted fluff, now connects perfectly!
