Multi-Tasking w/ Android Phone thru HU via USB No Android Auto

I'm considering a single-DIN head unit that is android compatible, but does not have android auto.

It also has spotify compatibility, which is achieved through the phone via USB and a data plan.

My concern is that when I'm using google maps navigation with the phone while it's interfaced with the HU via USB, spotify and / or phone functionality may not be available. So, can I receive google maps turn-by-turn directions from the phone while using it for spotify and the occasional phone call?

Any experience with this appreciated. Thank you.

    Can't answer your question BUT spotify does integrate with Waze which is another legitimate navigation application. Basically Waze will pop in while playing music to tell you when to turn etc etc.

    No problemo!

    The only upside to Waze over Google Maps is it is community updated so you will get all sorts of real time updates. Faster than Google in my experience.

    I can't remember but I think some even mark down Police checkpoints etc etc. It's been a while since I read that though so might not be the case anymore.

    Basically a great way to get around needing android auto. Much appreciated.
