The first Google-certified software protector to put Android Auto wirelessly in cars is launching today, but launch inventory sold out immediately. Fortunately, a restore of the Motorola MA1 is in the works.
If you go to Amazon listing for Motorola MA1 Today, you will find that the product is listed as “currently out of stock” and has no pre-order option. This has been happening, over and over, for most of the past month. The listing accepted pre-orders yesterday when we posted our actual impressions of the product, but they are closed.
Speaking to SGW Global, the company behind this Motorola-branded product, we learned that the Motorola MA1 will be added soon. SGW tells us that Amazon stockpiling is the main bottleneck at the moment, but the listing will be replenished in the “next few days” with the next stock of inventory then sold.
Also, interested buyers will get another choice later this week, as the Motorola MA1 will launch at Target.com starting January 30.
Update 2/1: The listing for Motorola MA1 has finally appeared at Target.combut predictably it is also out of stock.
It is not difficult to see the attractiveness of this product. Android Auto is a great tool in the car, but its wired form factor can be a bit annoying for short trips, and it limits charging speeds a lot. Using Android Auto wirelessly is more convenient and opening the USB port to a charger is faster. Also, other options like AAWireless launched by crowdfunding also saw stocks delayed.
