Using an Android device for in-car navigation and more? Here's how to automate the process and forget about it

For all the advancements in the mobile industry, to this day, your car's infotainment system remains, for all intents and purposes, ancient. These systems are often clunky, under-powered, and just not functional and flexible enough. This has lead to a rise in the number of people who instead opt for a cheaper model without in-car infotainment systems, and then fill in the functional gap with an Android device, usually a tablet. What's more, many go ahead and permanently mount the device into the middle console...

Reasons like this are the reasons why I love Android and can't think of using anything else. Android FTW!

My question is.. how many people have a permanently mounted android device??
Clever tool and app though!

I haven't tried this app out yet but I do have one of my older devices (Galaxy Nexus) permattached to my car. I used it for vehicle diagnostics, video recording, navigation, music (Play Music) and the occasional web search.
If this app works as designed, it could be helpful for when I download new apps specifically for the driving environment.

Over the years Moto had car mounts that attached to the windshield...so it doesnt necessarily have to be permanent.
