Download Android Auto 10.2 APK

Google pushed a major build of Android Auto v10 earlier this year. It featured a new vertical sidebar for the Google Maps interface with better accessibility and ease of use. Android Auto 10.9 just released with a new color scheme for the navigation UI on Google Maps. Here, download the new Android Auto 10.9 APK with stability improvements and support for more smartphones and car head units.

Google Maps users on Android Auto are seeing a new color scheme for the navigation UI. The navigation lines are now vibrant making it easier to follow the maps on smaller Android Auto displays.

This goes without saying that the new UI comes with the latest Coolwalk update; which is now available for all car head units. Checkout the fresh color scheme introduced in the latest update.

Google Maps new colors look in 480p Android Auto update

Android Auto 10.9 and Google Maps version: 11.105.0102 may give you the new color scheme shown in the screenshot. However, it is a server-side switch and some users may or may not received it just yet.

The new update also focuses on stability and improves the existing features such as Coolwalk, Dark Mode, DND, Digital Key, and much more. The update also enables Google Maps for both your smartphone and car head unit simultaneously. This is great for non-touchscreen head units or users who find using phone more convenient for navigation.

Google also implemented a new left-aligned sidebar design for Google Maps on Android Auto v10. The current user interface of Google Maps on Android Auto places buttons for map zoom, compass, and voice navigation settings at the bottom aligned to the lower left corner of the UI. While this arrangement works for some functions, it creates inconsistencies when it comes to accessing certain controls.

To address these issues, the update adds a new vertical sidebar at the left that neatly stacks all the important buttons together, making them easily accessible for users.

The Settings button now joins the other controls on the left side, and it is top-aligned for better visibility and usability. The map zoom buttons remain at the bottom for familiar navigation.
