The App is developed using Android Studio and should pretty much work out-of-the-box when you clone the Git repository and open the project with Android Studio.
The only exception is that you need to obtain some free API keys for the different data sources that
EVMap uses and put them into the app in the form of a resource file called
app/src/main/res/values. You can find more information on which API keys are necessary for which
features and how they can be obtained in our documentation page.
There are three different build flavors,
fossvariants only use Mapbox data and should run on most Android devices, even without Google Play Services.
fossNormalis intended to run on smartphones and tablets, and also includes the Android Auto app for use on the car display (however for that to work, the Android Auto app is necessary, which in turn does require Google Play Services).
fossAutomotivecan be installed directly on Android Automotive OS (AAOS) headunits without Google services. It does not provide the usual smartphone UI, and requires an implementation of the AOSP template app host to be installed. If you are an OEM and would like to distribute EVMap to your AAOS vehicles, please get in touch.

googleAutomotivecan be installed directly on car infotainment systems running the Google-flavored Android Automotive OS (Google Automotive Services / "Google built-in"). It does not provide the usual smartphone UI, and requires the Google Automotive App Host to run, which should be preinstalled on those cars and can be updated through the Play Store.
We also have a special documentation page on how to test the Android Auto app.
