Automatic is an app store for your car

An adapter that plugs to just about any modern car and then streams all kinds of data to the driver’s smartphone sounds like a good idea – in fact, it already exists and is called “Automatic”.

This includes engine problem notifications, remembering where you parked and all those kinds of stuff. Now it gets better.

CES 2015 Roundup: Android in full throttle

The dust of CES 2015 has finally settled down, so now we can take a more holistic overview of what went down at the world's largest consumer electronics event.

Join us for Android Community's recap of CES 2015.

Galaxy Nexus 3-pin car dock works with Verizon model – sort of

Plenty of you disappointed when Samsung's Galaxy Nexus car dock for the Verizon LTE version of the phone turned out to be less of a dock and more of a snugly-fitting piece of plastic. So far Verizon customers haven't been able to take advantage of the three electrical contacts on the left side of the phone at all. Though Google states (emphatically and repeatedly) that the docks on the Google Play Store are for the GSM model only, at least one LTE Gnex owner on XDA got it to work.

Galaxy Nexus desktop, HDMI and car docks shown in videos

Real nerds love docks. They make it so much easier to safely use a navigation app in a car, and instantly smarten up any desktop. Google and Samsung gave us a brief look at the desk and car docks for the Galaxy Nexus during the Hong Kong unveiling event, but now UK retailer MobilFun has given them a proper hands-on. They're nothing mind-blowing, but it's good to see that Samsung is going forward with the plans anyway.
