gps – Best Android Auto app to act as a vocal guide during car trips?

Does anyone know of an Android Auto compatible app that functions as a vocal guide during car trips? I’d like to be able to ask questions like “tell me about this region,” and get information about its culture, geography, history, current events, etc., and, of course, worthwhile sites.

When I ask this question to Google Assistant, I get a postal code of the local town. It suggesting to read out some Wikipedia highlights would be perfect.

Anything like this exists?

Can we use the "EU citizen only" lane when travelling by car with one non-EU passenger inside?

I am a non-EU citizen with permanent residence in EU. My wife and my kid are EU citizens. When travelling togehter by car, are we allowed to use the "EU citizen only lane" when crossing borders, although I am not EU-citizen?

pick up rental car from amtrak station in schenectady NY?

I’ve only travelled by Amtrak a couple of times. A big catch seems to be that few stations have rental car places. I’m planning a trip to Schenectady NY. Amtrak’s web site talks about discounts they arrange with local car rental places, but then they have a map showing them all several miles from the station. How do you get from the train station to the car rental place? Will the rental places pick you up? Is there a shuttle bus? Do I need to find a taxi? Or what?

car rentals – How to rent a car quiet on the inside – Netherlands

We are renting a car to go on holiday. As we will be driving about 3500km total, large parts of it in one go, we would like it to be somewhat quiet(1) inside.
Rental companies offer a specific size of car, but not a specific car. So we don’t know what car we have until we pick it up.

What makes things more complicated is the organisation of rentals, for example last year we:

  • rented a car through ANWB (a ‘tourist’ organisation)
  • via Hertz (large rental company)
  • handled by a local car-rental garage (so not Hertz itself).

And to make it more complicated, when we called Hertz, we could not rent directly through them because they had no more cars left for that period. So somehow they found more cars, through some other supplier.

In other words, there are maybe 4 different companies involved in the renting of 1 car. So who can I call to ask for a quiet car?

Note1 If you never drove on the highway in a car that has poor sound insulation, you may not understand the question. But it it really tiresome to spend 8 hours surrounded by noise. We have a small son who is affected by this even more. An hour in our Fiat Panda is doable, but 8 hours would be too much.

game mechanics – Simple racing car steering?

I want to make a simple 2d top-down racing game, something like Mario Kart in 2d, but I am really struggling with the car steering. The only resources I find are complicated and involve a lot of different physics equations. They are all an overkill for my small project.

Do you known how I could implement some simple car steering or do you know some resources? It doesn’t have to be accurate, it should just feel nice to control the car.

It would be awesome if you could help me!

standby – Android 10 on car doesn’t have a sleep mode option

I got a head unit in my car that runs android 10. I’m kind of disappoint with this unit, and the most annoying thing is the loading time at boot, since I need to go reverse and need to wait for the rear camera.

I saw on youtube that there is an option to make the device not going to sleep for hours/days (under Settings > Car settings)… but I can’t find “Car settings” on my device. I was also looking for it under Settings > Display, but no luck again.

Any suggestions?
Thanks

single responsibility – Should a Car object be responsible for checking if it is able to run on certain Road objects?

I have 2 kinds of objects in my system, Car and Road.

A Car can be of various types and have properties like tire, tire size, engine, etc.

A Road can be of multiple types and have properties like terrain type, slippery, etc.

Some type of cars cannot ride on certain roads, based on the road properties and car limitations/constraints, like a common car cannot walk on beach sand because it would get stuck with smaller tires and weaker engine, but a “monster truck” could, because it has bigger tires and a better engine.

with that in mind, who should have the responsibility of checking whether a car can ride on a specific road?

i think that a Car should throw exceptions if it cannot ride, but i don’t think a Car should know in which road is going to ride.

  • should the road check the car’s properties and tell if it’s able to
    run on the road?
    i think this options falls to a procedural approach of getters/setters.

  • how would this scenario “scale” if a had multiple properties on a Car
    that could affect the capability of riding on a road?

how can i approach this?

base code:

export interface Car {
  engine: string;
  tire: string;
  tireSize: string;

  ride(): void // ride only if Road is compatible
}

export interface Road {
  terrain: string;
  isSlippery: boolean;
  cars: Car();

  startRace(): void
  
}
