2016 Buick Regal and LaCrosse Android Auto Update
Earlier this year, Buick announced it would offer Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, with Apple CarPlay included as standard equipment from the start of the model year and Android Auto available later. Well now Buick is offering Android AutoTM compatibility via software update to U.S. owners who purchased a 2016 model year Regal or LaCrosse model equipped with an eight-inch IntelliLink system. Smartphone integration technology is just one piece of Buick’s commitment to keeping customers connected in a smart and simple way while driving.
Android Auto requires a phone running the Android Lollipop 5.0 operating system or high, as well as the compatible third-party app to be downloaded to a phone before using.
