Toyota agrees to add Android auto in its cars

 

From another article

According to the publication, Google collected “Stuff like vehicle speed, throttle position, coolant and oil temp, engine revs—basically Google wants a complete OBD2 dump whenever someone activates Android Auto…. Apple, by way of stark contrast, only wants to know if the car is moving while Apple Play is in use.”

Google refuted a lot of that except for vehicle speed, which I guess makes sense for 'dead reckoning' - i.e. the ability to predict your location without a GPS signal such as when driving through a long tunnel.

Otherwise Google Maps would behave just like on a smartphone in a tunnel and not show your location without a signal.
