Has anyone found a way to enable split screen Android Auto? It is supposed to work on screens 7" and up, so my Pro S definitely has the right size screen... Yet I can't figure out how to get it to show both music and maps, it only wants to show one app at a time.

It's a good question. Sounds like it's still rolling out. Not sure if it's gated by Google or VW.

There is a hack out there (link), but I haven't tried it.

Will be nice once feature is available.

There is a hack out there (link) that you can do on phone (without even needing root), but I haven't tried it.

Yeah I saw that, but I'm not tech savvy enough to edit the code of my head unit haha! I'm hoping it rolls out to the VW. From what I've read, it's on the car manufacturer's end, not Google.

If your android phone has root, you can achieve the split screen with this app - force enable wide screen. No hacking of the head unit required

Heres what it looks like on my 10" PRO using my galaxy s10

Yeah this is what I want! But no, I don't have a rooted phone. I was hoping to there would be a simple way without needing to do that. I just can't understand why it's such a hassle to get something so simple.
