Recent Android update broke maps in Android Auto

JUMP TO SOLUTION

The recent Android update for my Note9 that was available Sunday, November 4 messed up Google Maps and Waze in Android Auto in my 2018 VW.

 

After installing the update, the touchscreen is misaligned when using those apps, but no others are affected, and the Android Auto icons at the bottom of the screen are fine. 

 

In Maps and Waze, the touch point doesn't line up with the icons, and sometimes I can't get the icon to work at all. It's like a calibration issue, but only in those apps.

 

Help!

Found the solution. You need to adjust your phone resolution. It started to work perfectly once I adjusted the screen resolution ON MY PHONE to FHD+ 2220x1080.

Have you tried force stopping and clearing the cache on the maps and waze application?

I have not. I have rebooted the phone. I just did a force stop and clear cache on both apps, and I'll see if the problem is fixed on my commute home today. Thanks.

The force stop and cache clear did not fix the problem. I'm going to try deleting all app data, uninstall, and reinstall Waze to see if that fixes the problem.

Deleting the app data and reinstalling Waze didn't fix the issue, either.

Having the same issue with my Sony XAV-AX100. It's been a problem since the most recent update.

Thanks for posting that. I'll give it a try, although I don't consider it the solution, as I don't want to drop the resolution of my phone down from the full quad HD, since I don't have battery life issues. This might also explain the fact that it seems like the Maps and Waze Android Auto display had been uglier, with jaggies in the graphics, since around the same time.
