Do you wish you could get in your car or truck and just say, "Hey Google, play Rolling Stones" without the need to physically connect your Android phone via a cable? The Motorola MA1 is for you.
Billed as "the world’s first and only" wireless Android Auto dongle with authentic Google-licensed bridge technology, the MA1 acts as a go-between for Android phones and your vehicle’s infotainment system.
The puck-shaped plug-and-play wonder uses a mix of Bluetooth and 5GHz Wi-Fi to connect to your phone. It's easy to use and, crucially, we didn’t notice any drop in performance compared to a traditional hardwired Android Auto connection.
There’s no need to download any third party apps either. Simply fire up the Android Auto app on your phone and you’re good to go. The device offers access to all the important Android Auto features.
You’ll need a compatible Android phone or device, of course – one that supports 5GHz Wi-Fi and runs Android 11 or newer. However, with so many Android phones on the market, you’ll be spoilt for choice (the MA1 is not compatible with Apple iOS or CarPlay).
As you’ll see from our full review, the Motorola MA1 does exactly what it promises to do, offering wireless Android Auto support in cars and trucks and on motorbikes. And it does that job incredibly well, to the point that you’ll struggle to tell that it’s a wireless connection during use.
So, whether you’re hunting for a last-minute holiday gift or simply fancy upgrading to a wireless Android Auto experience, the Motorola MA1 is a great buy. Head over to Amazon now for today’s best Motorola MA1 deals.
