Recently purchased a new S20 and I can't get my Android auto to work. When I initially connect usb it will connect up and then the screen on the head unit goes black. If I go to the menu it shows the Android Auto is connected but if I select it again just a black screen. Any one with any ideas?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I'm having the same issue. I had an S8 that worked fine. I plug my 20 in and it works for a few minutes then I get a message saying please reconnect device when stopped and safe, but of course the device is never unplugged. Samsung chat tried blaming my Kenwood Head Unit in the car saying it will need a firmware update...I feel like it would be on samsungs end not the stero on a wired connection using an existing app.
I'm the same the S8 has worked fine for the last couple of years, I don't even get an error message just a black screen but it still seems like Android auto is connected. I can't see why it would be a firmware issue if like you it has previously been work on the s8
Not necessarily true. I had a Galaxy S7 Active that was working prior to the January or Febuary revision to Android Auto. Once the update took place in late febuary, all voice features and call features stopped working. Music and Map features work, but no voice or phone. I bought the new S20+ 2 weeks ago, and same issue with same version of Android Auto. Neither phone works, with any cable on any of my 3 Pioneer NEX models(different models in different vehicles.) I updated all of them to current firmware, with no fix. This is a known issue with the latest release of Android Auto.
