New Galaxy Z Fold 3 owner here. I recently just wanted to see Googles new drive mode that is replacing the Android Auto app so I turned it on. Now even if I turn it off in assistant settings or Google maps settings it will automatically turn itself back on when I plug my phone into my Android Auto car head unit!!  

Anyone else having this issue? 

Also if you have a car with Android Auto you'd never even need this feature. But my wife's car doesn't have Android Auto so I was looking into it for her.

Thanks!

Same problem. I've turned it off numerous times and it just comes back on when I connect to my car.

I had this issue with my Fold 2 as well in a rental car I had last week.

Thank you for the follow-up. I would try clearing the cache and data for the following apps. Give these steps a try: Go to settings > apps > tap on the 3 dots in the top right corner > tap on show system apps:

 

  1. Go to Google Play Services>Storage and tap clear cache 
  2. Go to Google Play Store>Storage and tap clear cache, then tap clear data 
  3. Go to Google Services Framework>Storage and tap clear cache, then tap clear data

Hi, I tried this and the problem persist. It just turns right back on when you connect to the car or the cars bluetooth.

Thank you for reaching out. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when an app doesn't function as expected. Have you tried clearing the cache and data for the Google app you are experiencing these symptoms with?

Thanks for the reply! Since this is the Google Assistant version of Android Auto, I'm not sure what app(s) needs clearing. The Google Assistant app it's self has no data or cache. I'm open for more insight and suggestions!

Thanks!
