Android Auto: Switch between day and night mode

Android Auto is officially not yet available here, but will finally finally come to the Netherlands. Many people already use the navigation software for the car. Whether its interface appears light or dark depends on several factors.

For example, it can be managed by the car, in combination with the settings of the car radio or the lights. If the lamps are off, then the light mode is used, if you turn the lamps on, Android Auto switches to dark mode.

It can also be managed by the settings of your smartphone. If you set the system-wide dark mode, Android Auto will take over, so that the interface is always displayed in dark tones. Yet that does not always work well. You can easily set the day or night mode yourself via the steps below.
