Welcome to the Console, Inc Wiki

Welcome to the Wiki for Console, Inc! Located here is an information repository for all of our products, both production and experimental.

OpenHU Project (New!)

The OpenHU Project is our new effort to continue the open-source Android Auto Head Unit application, originally developed by the late Mike Reid.

In a nutshell, the OpenHU app will allow you to take most modern Android tablets, and use them as an Android Auto receiver for your car. It is fully open-source, and we're taking over leadership of the project, in order to keep a great app going.


Necessary Note: OpenHU is not a Google application. Google owns all related Android trademarks and intellectual property related to Android Auto.

Console OS™ (Experimental)

Console OS™ with Android is the first commercial distribution of the Android™ operating system, and is based on the Android Open Source Project. Our goal is to make the most powerful, and easy-to-use Android experience possible for the laptop, desktop, PC Tablet, and 2-in-1.
