Google on Thursday announced that Android Auto is officially ready for the consumers. According to the company, Pioneer is the first manufacturer to release Android Auto-compatible Head units (in-dash AV receivers).

If you own an Android smartphone powered by v5.0 or above, you can now pick up one of Pioneer’s Android Auto head units, install the Android Auto app from Google Play and enjoy Android Auto in your car.

At this point, Pioneer is launching a total six in-dash AV receivers, which will work with Android Auto, worldwide, but their availability will depend on the market you live in. Like in the US, they are selling three units – AVIC-8100NEX, AVIC-7100NEX, and AVH-4100NEX; in UK, you can get different three units – AVIC-F77DAB, AVIC-F70DAB and AVH-X8700BT and so on. The Android Auto products from Pioneer will reach other markets including India soon.
