Has this been fixed yet? I just got a samsung s10+ and it simply will not connect to my car.
When I first connected my phone to it, I expected it to be as simple as apple car play, but it was not. I connected, and the android auto app flashed on the car, and so I followed some instructions and downloaded the app. It starts working on my phone and the car, and then I notice that spotify doesn't work. So I google that for a bit. I have to switch to developer mode. Cool. I figure it out, allow unknown sources. Plug it back in, Spotify shows up on my phone, but now my phone wont connect. Now the car just starts to play "Over the Horizon" when connected by USB to my phone. I've tried a billion different things and I have no clue at all what to do.
I just made the switch to android, and now I'm thinking about switching back to apple, bc I drive a lotttt
have you contact google or car manufacturer for this?
what is the android auto app version?
what is the phone software build number from the settings > about phone > software information?
Same problem here on 2016 Ford F150 Lariat with updated Sync3 system
Won't autolaunch for me at all. It keeps saying "starting Android auto....." and never auto launches. I have to manually launch it each time. I have it set to autolaunch so not sure why it isn't working. My previous S8 phone worked all the time.
I had the same problem, using android auto on the phone. Try turning off the pocket detection in the settings, it was on for me and when I turned it off android auto started up when connected to my car just as my s8 did.
