FireMonkey And Android Auto

Anyone able to get a FireMonkey app to run through Android Auto?

So far I was able to get it to launch the app on the phone I think but it never ends up showing up on the in-vehicle screen.

I have this file created and I believe deployed to the right location (res/xml/).

   <uses name="media" />

Then inside the AndroidManifest.template.xml file I have:

    <application android:persistent="%persistent%" 
        <meta-data android:name="" android:resource="@xml/automotive_app_desc"/>
        <meta-data android:name="" android:resource="@style/CarTheme" />

What I can't tell (and didn't get a chance to try yet) is if the Intent is required for the app to work. Android Auto supports two kinds of apps. A media playback and a notification app and not sure if it HAS to support one of those two Intent setups or not. Haven't had a chance to try further yet.

<service android:name=".MyMediaBrowserService"
            <action android:name=

<receiver android:name=".MyMessageReadReceiver"
          <action android:name=""/>
    <receiver android:name=".MyMessageReplyReceiver"
          <action android:name=""/>
