    I'm attempting to use AutoInput with Tasker to start the head unit server in Android Auto. I have most of the steps needed however I can't seem to figure the element ID or Text element of the hamburger menu on the main AA page.

    Steps should be:
    • Launch AA
    • Click "hamburger" <-- Missing
    • Click "About"
    • Click 3 dots ("More options")
    • Click "Start head unit server"

    I found a task that uses the Snackbar plugin called Task Assist to query the elements however it does not see the hamburger or the microphone.

    Here is what it found:
    APP NAME
    Android Auto

    APP PACKAGE
    com.google.android.projection.gearhead

    TEXT ELEMENTS - (3 TOTAL)

    Figured it out. I just ended up finding the coordinates of the menu and using a click point action. I'm sure there may be some pitfalls to doing it this way, like screen rotation but it's working for now.
