Android Auto integration is now available for all 2019 and 2020 MY Acura RDX vehicles in the USA, free of charge via an over-the-air update. The system update also includes a variety of feature and performance enhancements to “elevate the overall RDX user experience,” according to the auto maker.
Android Auto is said to give drivers a simple, intuitive way to access maps, messaging, music and other popular smartphone apps and services through Acura’s True Touchpad Interface. Compatible with Android 5.0 and higher, Android Auto integration is standard on all 2019 and 2020 Acura RDX models.
Third-generation RDX customers can check the True Touchpad Interface home screen’s system update button to accept and begin the update. Using the vehicle’s embedded 4G LTE wi-fi system, the new software is downloaded in the background while the vehicle is being driven or when turned off. To initiate the update, however, the vehicle must be on and running in a well-ventilated area.
