Episode 1618 (1:31:00)

Richard (Old Chef Guy) from Sonoma, CA
Android Auto

Richard has the same issue with an older version of Ford Sync and his smartphone. Leo says he can replace the head unit, but it would end up losing some features. He just found out about a new Android Auto stand-alone unit that is being made by Sony. It's called the Sony Carplay Receiver. $600 and launching in December. Or, he could upgrade to Ford Sync 3 for $1500 and it'll have it.
