Responses from a couple, mostly boilerplate, but at least a direct response and not just ignoring it:

I have contacted a ComfortCharge guy in a GoingElectric sub forum. They're building a big HPC network all over Germany at their bigger facilities, which they have a LOT of. This is Deutsche Telekom, master of German telephone and DSL infrastructure, direct ancestor of Deutsche Post. Hope you'll hear from them, I've simply postetd your "Helping ABRP - Charge Networks" and some explanations.

It was mentioned that it's technically possible to get ABRP running on Android Auto although not really recommended. Still, i was a bit bored and had an old phone so decided to give it a try.

Keep in mind, this is on a 7" screen in a 5 year old car that did not originally have Android Auto enabled. ABRP is being displayed using AA Stream which needs root to do so.

In August Google and few other companies announced that third-party navigation apps are coming to Android Auto. There are beta tests of TomTom, MapFactor, SpotHero, PlugShare, Sygic GPS Navigation, ChargePoint, and two more navigation apps that I don't know the names. They are still in early access, as Google is finalizing rules and UI guidelines to make it non-distracting to the driver, etc.  So they are not against competitive navigation solutions (other than Google Maps and Waze), it just takes a lot of time to set stuff up.

I really hope the early access goes well and ABRP apply to the program soon. ABRP and OSMand would be super useful to have in the car.

Since we got access to the CarPlay build tools first (Apple was much more responsive than Google) we're tackling that, and we'll be building for Android Auto as soon as possible! Bo and I use Android, so we want that just as much as you do!
