The Android Auto app worked flawlessly between my S7 Edge and my Hyundai. I got the Note 8 yesterday and I cannot get it to link up with the car. Something tells me it is not compatible, which is a real problem since I use GoogleMaps and Waze for my GPS. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Same here. Can't connect to AA in any of my vehicles with my Note 8. S7 Edge worked perfectly. Even the AA app crashes after it has been fully setup. It will launch on the phone, but as soon as I set the app up and allow notifications, it crashes. With Sync 3 version 3.0 in my 2016 mustang, the Note 8 won't even connect. It just gives an incompatible USB device, please unplug warning.

I p[osted my problem on the Android Auto site, and got this response:

Android Auto will not work with 6200. Need 7 inch screen. Appradio will work but needs a HDMI hookup (see manual) I am attempting to do this but have to find a correct adapter
Need to use a hdmi cable and usb hooked into one port on radio (to power the adapter) they both hook up to the hdmi adapter which must have someway to connect to the phones sub c port. The only adapter I can find that has this is a $89 Apple device that I am not sure will work (yet) I am still researching and will update

This was a problem that started when they first launched the Note 5. They dropped the capability to be able to connect via an HDMI cable. The adapter you are looking for is a MHL. Don't know if it will work on the Note 8. Hope it does because it upset a lot of people that lost that function because they wanted to push their smart TV's.

I had initial issues too with my Honda Accord. But what I did, was that I initially uninstalled my android auto and then re installed while the phone was disconnected from the car. While it was still disconnected, I then redid all the AA preferences and then connected it to the car. Worked the 2nd time around without event.
