  1. William Nalle-avatar

    When it works, it's great. Seamless integration with navigation, music and contacts for calls and texts. I've run into some issues with it disconnecting. While on a trip, I had to unplug and replug it several times to reconnect. Disabling Bluetooth seems to have fixed it for now. Could be very annoying for someone that has other Bluetooth devices though.

  2. Jonathan Yeh-avatar

    4.5.5928 The app itself is helpful in that it displays only the essential phone functions and audio functions in nice, big, bolded text and extra-large icons. I can't speak for the car side of the app because I dont have a car with android auto. Otherwise, it does a good job keeping me from using my phone while driving. Update: I now have a car with Android Auto, and I gotta say the interface is incredibly easy to use. It would be nice if we can choose between a light and dark theme on that system though

  3. A Google user-avatar

    4.4.5923 When disconnecting AA, when you turn off your car, Android auto continues to run in the background for a couple of minutes and causes some serious. you can't go into the app drawer, if you're trying to type a message it can't utilize the keyboard correctly, all sorts of bizarre things. If you can somehow get into the app functions and for stop the app and everything returns to normal

  4. Michael Combs-avatar

    app This app has been terrible. Constantly doesn't connect properly. My biggest issue right now is that it won't pull up my phone's screen onto the vehicle's screen like it's supposed to. Done everything I could find with tips. I even reinstalled Android auto, which ended up making things worse because now the app doesn't appear anywhere on my apps but says it's installed on Google play. Just not having a good experience with this app.

    apk I have VW Tiguan 2018 with App-Connect (Android Auto) and S10+ which worked just fine up until recently. Now it just won't connect. I've tried clearing data and cache, restarting all the settings both on the phone and the car infotainment system - but nothing helps. I've also tried my wife's phone (Samsung Galaxy A51) which also doesn't work. What's going on?!

  6. Kirk Webber-avatar

    download I'd have to say that after many months of Android Auto failures, the team got it working with all current updates. FYI 2018 Ioniq/LG G7. It still possesses the the demon voice and misses a few times but it's functional. I can't vouch for any other combinations or if the next updates will break it again. I would like to suggest to Google to keep beta testing to a closed loop and confidently release working updates. I am weighing heavily on going back to Apple. Anyway, fingers crossed.

  7. STEVE MAZAYE-avatar

    3.9.5850 Icon lost. Impossible to open it from anywhere. Had issues with a stupid message saying that I need to use mic command when I tried the mic command on my car and car screen . It was working fine before I have been updated. Therefore I removed the updates [google 10 on Samusung A50). Now I can't even open the app. Therefore my phone is useless for my car. Google please make good products like you did before.

  8. Stef Walton-avatar

    android auto google maps media & messaging 3.8 5845 Edit June 2020: Use auto everyday, current problem is that I get no voice prompts for navigation unless I'm listening to a phone source! If I listen to radio, I have to keep a keen eye on the nav screen which is dangerous and has made me turn back to my TomTom (far from ideal). The issue with absent notification sounds is still apparent, unsure if these things ever get looked at?!! Really really want AA to replace my TomTom but I have to use both, so annoying

  9. A. Gil-avatar

    android auto google maps media & messaging 4.1 5909 Does not receive messages, frustrating. 2020 Chevy Infotainment connects ok, but messages do not come through. I have given every permission possible, uninstalled and re installed, no luck . The app seems to go to do not disturb mode automatically, and if you change it, it reverts back within minutes. AA forums indicate same issue. Please fixxxxx!

    apk download I do not like the fact that the temperature is no longer a display. The older version of this was in my opinion better than the 'new and improved'.. Im with mike... show me how to get the old one back and ill re instal it. ` ive reinstalled it after a hiatus from it for a while. Much nicer now, really enjoying the changes to it! `

  11. Daniel Novic-avatar

    Works perfectly for google maps. However, it often has trouble with pandora where it will not connect properly unless. I start pandora before connecting my phone to my car. Edit: Since the last few updates integration of pandora and other such apps has seen dramatic improvements. I no longer have issues unless I am in an area with no data signal.

  12. Carlos Arteaga-avatar

    Maps works great, but using any music app with android auto is a hassle. Music stops playing or cuts off for 3 seconds then continues playing. Even having the music downloaded into my Playlist does not even help. Used YouTube music and spotify music and still has the same bad results for the music portion. UPDATE (06-28-20) : Music stops playing without using Google maps throughout. Skips many times. Needs to be updated.

  13. Antero Duarte-avatar

    Very good app for a non distracting driving experience. Could do with a few more integrations, like for example it doesn't connect to my phone's music app. Not sure if it's specific to my phone or if it only integrates with streaming services, but sometimes I've got songs on my phone and it's hard to play them in the car (I know, I know, that's so 2005...)

  14. David Guest-avatar

    Too buggy. Compared to Apple Car Play, the Android auto app looks better and offers more functionality but has a lower resolution which really is a kill joy. The biggest problem is that the app will rather frequently not let me run a music app without a hard restart. The most annoying thing is that the app does not close itself when I shut off my car. I can flawlessly just pull my iPhone out without having to pause the music or close the app. I used the all with a galaxy S9 and S20.

  15. Cristian Gaga-avatar

    For some reason it doesn't work with my pixel2 on android 10 or 11 beta, I had to revert back to Android 9. My wife has an iPhone and the resolution in the same car is painfully low compared to Apple CarPlay. CarPlay also feels more snappy. And the fact that you are limited only to Google maps and waze (waze location on the screen is 50 meters behind for me) when the closed ecosystem of Apple allows for sygic and other navigation apps is a joke. Don't be evil!

  16. Rachel Wojcik-avatar

    Lately I have not been able to get Android auto to work on my display in my car. This appears to have happened overnight - when I plug my phone in to the cable, it no longer connects. Android Auto will light up on the display on my headunit, I'll tap it, and the app interface is gone. It's just the blank background image from my headunit. Have tried using it on different cars, same issue. Headunit just was updated at the dealership, but my phone no longer connects to the headunit.

  17. Emani Downes-avatar

    App constantly shuts down and after the last two updates I can no longer use the steering wheel controls for answering calls or controlling my music on Spotify. Waze is pretty much useless because it never launches. Only positive is I haven't had any issues with using Google Maps. Needs major bug fixes. Apple Car play far less frustrating to use.

  18. Jacob Wertz-avatar

    Was an okay app when I first got it. Got used to it and enjoyed being able to use the "okay google" command to play music on Spotify. App has now gone to a horrible app as it no longer plays music when using "okay google" or "hey google." I have stopped using the app. The only reason it gets 2 stars is google maps.

  19. Evan-avatar

    It's extremely nice to have in your car. I have an aftermarket head unit and the maps are so outdated on it. When I use android auto its nice to have real time updates and my previous searches within my maps. I wish they would add more but they seem to be doing a great job at that so far. Keep it up Android Auto team, I'm looking forward to new features!

  20. Kathy Knox-avatar

    App is a great way to have hands-free phone calls. Also it is a great way to respond to text messages without having to remove eyes from the road and hands from the wheel. The one thing that I detest is letting it read text messages aloud. Instead of just simply saying the contact's name & message, it has to read through the name, the phone number, the time, the date, the phone number again... there's so much that it reads off before it gets to message. I choose to read the message on my own.

    Periodic Crashes and black screen. Sometimes once a minute. If you leave device plugged in and turn car off and then on it won't boot properly. Often google assistant will listen but never stop listening even if you've stopped talking. Almost unusable some days. I install carplay and android auto units for a living and we have significantly more issues with android sadly.

    App constantly disconnects from screen, which is very problematic when you are driving and depending on the map display. I changed wires, only thing that helps, unplug the USB, wait 5 seconds, and replug. That's really not a good situation, as the system is not reliable. Very frustrated.

    Not working with my 2020 car media player. USB connection does not want to remain on file transfer/android auto when plugged in. Goes on for a few seconds and then disconnects. Updated my phone to Android 10.0. Cleared my data on Google, Playstore, Android Auto. Nothing working. Update: got android auto to work, downgraded to Android 9 and installed an older version of Android auto.

  24. Melina L-avatar

    Works most of the time. Just hate that when you set it up your car HAS to be in park. Not just you stopped at a light or something. I get the safety features that's fine but really? Also I hate that you can open Google Maps while Android auto is on. Its farily annoying how you can work both of them at the same time.

    Same issue as another of people. The app keeps crashing/disconnecting. I've bought additional cables (Samsung Branded and other expensive ones) and it keeps happening. Please fix you AA app Google. This is very disappointing. My husband's IOS device has no issue whatsoever when he is using his Apple Play service (also using USB)

    I have a Motorola moto g5 phone. When I connect by USB to vehicle, it does connect and does ok for maybe an hour, and get a disconnect. Vehicle display says " phone not responding". It tries to reconnect but does not. I can restart phone and it works for a period of time and Sam over again. The vehicle is 2016 Kia Sedona sxl.

  27. Alexis Kent-avatar

    I love it personally. But wish it just worked via Bluetooth without usb connection and I really really wish it did not cut when reading my news between segments . Update it seems now the news feed has improved.. now fix YouTube music for the price that should include YouTube red. Others offer free music and let me listen to via my Android car experience. However YouTube have all these limitation on it behind a paywall. Focus on music and stream hifi quality instead of music videos not watched

  28. Nimesh Patel-avatar

    Latest phone, 2020 car and latest app update. But the connection does not display when connected. Requiring to be unplugged and plugged in few times before it works. Also when on a call. It does not display the dial pad without being distracted. Should integrate an option to voice to select option for dial pad.

  29. Jarek Tabor-avatar

    At the most, it works well. Commands, connected apps. Though sometimes the whole system goes bananas, stops responding reacting. Like consuming all the memory. No other way than stopping the car, turning off the engine and... Yeah. Disconnections of the phone does not work. Anyhow, the improvements are constantly ongoing, so I am happy. Better option than apple car.

  30. Ian Shiels-avatar

    I, along with dozens of users posted around a year ago after the redesign that we need the option to launch music apps by default instead of navigation and got flat ignored by the development team who have released several updates since. It's just not good enough to ignore such a simple request for a very basic configuration change.

  31. S Sedrak-avatar

    Major bug issue. After the new Android software update on Oppo phone, Android Auto has been freezing and not loading anything on my car. When I go out and then back in android auto app in my car, I get a black screen. It's becoming very frustrating as this has never happened before. It's starting to become easier to use the cars software instead of the app.

  32. Kev Welsh-avatar

    Was a great app when I had Galaxy S9 now got S 20 plus ultra, its a pain, keeps disconnecting always does it when I'm using Google maps and within the crucial last mile of my journey & it goes again!! Spotify never seems to connect properly either have to press voice button on steering wheel then press it again & it works quite frustrating!!

  33. Paul Toler-avatar

    Gets the job done but acts as if it's in beta; has many quirks. Playing YouTube videos & adjusting the volume will stop YouTube & switch to your phone's saved music (only occurs when plugged into my car, Bluetooth will not work with Android auto but will play audio normally). Also the only way to interact with Google maps once plugged in is through your car's interface, which is way less handy than just using the phone. I really only use it for Google maps.

  34. Michael DeBolt-avatar

    I bought a new Toyota Camry 2020 because it supported Android Auto. My Pixel 3 connected just fine with Android Auto when I drove it off the lot, but then soon after my device was "not recognizable." I noticed that others in the Android community experienced the same issue with other Pixel 3 models, and some had success with changing out cables, which I tried to no avail. My wife's Pixel 2 works just fine. This is super frustrating and confusing that Google products cannot talk to one another and now I'm being forced to consider buying a new Android phone that supports it, or move to Apply Car Play. Any help getting this resolved would be appreciated!

    This app is really good I use it everyday but sometimes it doesn't work properly but hopefully with all the updates it will eventually get better and better. Only one thing that I really don't like I'm in Australia and the directions shortcut at the bottom of the screen don't show when I am navigating and I change the screen to Spotify it doesn't show the directions at the bottom so I can't leave the Spotify screen on while navigating I have to stay on the maps screen while navigating please add

  36. Ross D-avatar

    Disconnecting all the time. At first I thought it was the wire, but I've tried two wires. Thought it was the car but after searching the problem on the internet, there seems to be plenty of others with the same issue. It has been like this for months, it's so frustrating and especially dangerous when I'm trying to use maps and I have to fiddle with my phone every 5 minutes

  37. Tammy Shrauner-avatar

    Wonderful app.. Update. Not sure what is going on but can't use Google assistant. Note 9 upgraded software to 10.all it says when I want to text is "this internet is not reliable" when I have all my bars. Doesn't recognize when I say hey Google so have to push the button to get assistant which is now useless.*this works great now, but also switched phones.

  38. Phoenix Rising-avatar

    Whats up with the music randomly cutting out? Its this random silence, like the connection is lost. And the sound quality is also horrible. Playing music through my Bluetooth is great. No issues at all with random silence or volume but this is an issue for me using Android Auto. I hope this ACTUALLY gets fixed soon...until then I'll be using Bluetooth and my in stock navigation.

  39. Daniel D-avatar

    Update 6/15/20 Finally get the features back. Probably with the most recent update. --- Serious issue after updating to Android 10. This app worked fine on my LG V50 5G before upgrading the system to Android 10. Not it won't take my voice command for navigation or anything. And your forum response not helping at all.

  40. David Rock-avatar

    Not as good as I thought it was. Things break often with no explanation. Appears to still be in its infancy. It is simply not yet reliable. I have had google maps fail and cease to post updates forcing me to disconnect and use google maps directly from the phone.

  41. Ionut Ivan-avatar

    I have a Galaxy S9+ and whenever I start the app first and turn on the location after, I always have to disconnect and reconnect the wire so the app can recognize my location. It's not a major thing but it is annoying. Abother thing is youtube player. It looks hideous and not user friendly at all.

  42. Andrew Gebhard-avatar

    Voice controls via Google assistant often do not work. Since may, "Android Auto Could Not Start" has been an issue, particularly with connecting a new phone/car. Multiple phones and cables with same issue. Since May, randomly on occasion only a few apps show up in launcher, not all. Read-out message notifications only go away when you reply. Receive multiple messages in the same chat / group? You have to listen to every message from that chat since your last reply / android auto session.

  43. Eric Harris-avatar

    Breaks connection constantly. Sometimes doesn't connect. Worse party is when you lose connection when you're navigation. Makes it useless. Actually getting tired of it and thinking of getting an iPhone. Update - No I'm not visiting anything. Stop being lazy and do the research yourself before releasing faulty buggy products. Tired of it

  44. Dianna White-avatar

    It will sometimes connect and if I tap my wire it will sometimes disconnect. I thought it was my wire so I bought a new one but it still happened. I thought it was my phone but it was still charging? NOW it won't even connect to my car. I can't even find it on my apps anymore but it says "uninstall" when I go to app info.

    This is not opening. When I connect to my car. It is not detecting the app and not opening. On my phone it is displaying Code 16 error. Please help me how to resolve this issue. My phone is Redmi K20 pro. I use type-c cable. I resolved issue my self. No support from your end. I searched my self and solved it. I have deleted dual apps and then only Android Auto started working.

    I use Android Auto mainly for navigation, music, and podcasts. A little annoyance while using Maps on the go is occasionally the audio would pause and go by itself when the Maps is muted. Also when turn off the vehicle, the audio will switch to the phone speaker loudly for a moment before finally off. Hopefully these small issues would get to Google's list for future fixes!

    Maps will frequently just freeze on my car's screen. Have to reconnect the cable to get it to work...I drive on the highways and a lot of time it has created problems and distractions. Once it freezes, the cars touch doesn't respond anymore. Reconnecting the cable works . I'm driving a tata Nexon and also use the YouTube music app simultaneously on my android auto if that's relevant

    I love this just talk for google to give google maped turn by turn directions or or ask waze to open for directions, request Google to open your playlist from Spotify, google pocast, or pandora you can even get your text messages keep traveling even with offline service to keep directions and drive. I love this bad thing no discount from insurance company for using this talk only safe great feature. Rayshell

    It's pretty good, but my phone seems to have a seizure every time I connect it to the car (via Android auto). Also it's not the most smooth switching between tasks, like playing music, then reading a notification, then resuming the music.

  50. Wiaan Nel-avatar

    Stop Telling me to check a bloody FAQ feed. And stop telling me about the cable and battery and all that nonsense. The app disconnects for no reason. I pull and shake the cable and it doesn't disconnect. Not the cable. My battery is charging while connected. So not the battery. Full 4G signal. Not the signal. Works fine for 30mins then just cuts out. Millions of these negative reviews online. How about you actually fix the bloody thing. Waze also not working properly. For months now!!! Get going

    Overall good experience. Could be improved. I want to be able to remove the Google bar in navigation mode. Different map modes and more information like current top speed allowed would bump it up. The selection screen UI feels outdated. It's the little things.

    It's an awesome app but I still miss a few settings. Here in Brazil we have to use headlights on even during daylight and everything just goes into dark mode which it's terrible to use with a strong day light. Would be amazing have the possibility to set this up using sun rise and sun set.

    After I updated my Samsung Galaxy S9+ to Ver. 10 and also the apps latest updates 'Ok Google' no longer works, and everytime I try to send a text message by manually having to press the Mic Button on my Honda Civic Ex 2019 it says I have insufficient network coverage at Maxbars 4GLTE with Max unlimited plan with AT&T. Mic is 100% unresponsive while app is on. Trouble shooting steps I took. Spoke with AT&T level 3 tech support = I have zero issues on my end. & Pandora freaking out 27May update!

    I have only "uninstall" button - no open. If I reinstall it gives again only "uninstall". But if my car doesn't support Android Auto why do I need it? You include something into OS without asking to connect to car while android auto for phone screens is not available in all countries but from desktop version of market it says that my devices are incompatible… . How can I remove Android Auto completely???

  56. Tom Klein-avatar

    This last update breaks Android Auto on the Galaxy S10 goes into a connection loop. Both wired and wireless. Error : USB tranfer error. Uninstalled the update and installed it from apkmirror. Version 5.4.502244-release and works fine again. Please fix it as I have to disble automatic updates on the phone now.

  57. Ian-avatar

    Still does not work on Xiaomi phones when dual apps is active. Even when Android Auto is not running as a dual app. Can the developer please fix this shortcoming in Android Auto. This has been reported by others previously but not addressed by developer yet. What is the eta for this bug to be fixed please?

  58. sadman hoque-avatar

    EDIT: slight bump on the road caused USB cable to move a lil and my phone got disconnected and had me try to fix it while driving cause I didn't know the way; outright dangerous to depend on this app frankly. Would be nice if it didn't use Bluetooth for music and calls, and the scroll wheel for text input needs to be an infinite loop rather than making me go from one end to another.

  59. ken waldner-avatar

    This is an awful app from google. I can not tell my Pixel phone to call someone. Tried remedies that have been provided in various blogs. You would think their own devices would work. I plug in my wife's iPhone and apple car play works every time. This has been going on for months. 6 months and I can upgrade to an iPhone. Bye Google.

  60. Philip Perks-avatar

    Pixel 3a paired with Ford SYNC3 Useless for phone calls. Cannot make outgoing calls using voice recognition with either the steering wheel button or the touchscreen microphone button. Cannot answer incoming calls. Cannot add mobile apps. Just wasted £300 on a new pixel 3a. Will have to sell it and go back to using an iPhone

  61. Kayla H-avatar

    Seems to work great thus far! I've only been using it a week in my new truck, but I love that I can voice to google map addresses or nearby attractions. Simple to use, no complaints from me or my technologically challenged husband 🤣

    There was a new update released on June 14th. I installed it, cleared cache for Google and Android Auto, unpaired my devices. Turned them off and on, paired them back. Still have this issue I cannot believe it after all the money and time.

  63. Chris Field-avatar

    Buggy. When responding to a text verbally, sometimes there's a long pause after the lady says "Would you like to reply?", and then the little ding that signifies it's waiting for a response. Too long a wait. Sometime it doesn't ding at all. Buggy!

    Super happy that this app exists. For a while Apple Car Play dominated and i don't care for it. Simple menu navigation for obvious reasons (driving), interfaces well with Google maps and voice command. Even updates on it's own! A big plus. Try it!

  65. Rudy Santoso-avatar

    I have downloaded the new software on my phone Oppo,R17 , since then the android auto kept freezing and also Waze .. tried to uninstall and reinstall ,still didn't work . Anything else seems to work fine but the map is just frozen and each time I pressed on and off button its moves but only 2 second .please help !!

  66. Carl Kaiponen-avatar

    App worked perfectly with S7, just got the S20 and it keeps saying to connect the cord, tried multiple cords, same issues! The app shows up on the phone screen, but no information is being sent to the car. I've tried everything on the troubleshooting sights.

    When connected to the car - assistant and navigation direction start speaking with such high rate that it's impossible to recognize a word. When disconnected - speech rate comes back to normal. There was no such issue in the previous version.

  69. Evelien-avatar

    Very useful app, whenever I get in the car I'll turn this app on for easy music and navigation. The only thing I'd like to see is a swipe function for controling the music (swiping left or right for the next/previous song).

  70. George Nilsson-avatar

    This app is so much better across the board compared to the Mercedes GLC300 infotainment system. Navigation easier, can stream media from apps like PLEX, VLC, MLB, SIRIUSXM Google Play, and Amazon music. App also occasionally updates which really has improved experience each time.

  71. Dan Everett-avatar

    Android auto won't work with voice commands. Keeps say to tap notification when it's safe. There is no notification. When I dig in and find what I think is the correct selection, allow USB to transfer files and Android auto, it won't stay semected

  72. Felicity Wilde-avatar

    Rarely connects and when it does it constantly drops out. It's very dangerous, losing all navigation in the middle of driving. 😔 Google are making no attempt to fix this for Pixel users. 😠 That's the end of my time with Pixel. 😔

  73. Skuuskuu87-avatar

    My GPS no longer works with the app. As soon as I plug my phone in and use the GPS. It tells me that the signal was lost. But if i unplug my phone and hold it. GPS is fine on my phone. But I live in a state where I can't have my phone in my hand. And I use GPS for work.

  74. Jacob Burnette-avatar

    Wish it would let me select what app it opens on start up. I would greatly prefer it to be Spotify instead of Maps, as I listen to music every time I drive but I don't always need maps navigation. Instead I have to open Spotify manually every time I turn on my car.

  76. Toms Blodnieks-avatar

    Great app to connect with car! Worked perfect until I switched to Samsung Galaxy S20. Now disconnects at random times with no reason and there is no option how to fix this. Tried all the possible options but still disconnects. What to do?

    Since the update, the screen on the car freezes whenever the phone locks. Need to keep turning the phone screen on for it to run Google maps. Horrible experience and it sounds like I'm not alone with this issue.

  78. Peter Romano-avatar

    I moved on from the OnePlus 3T Midnight Edition, which ran Android 9 to the 8 Pro, which is running Oxygen OS 10.5.10. Android Auto runs much better and is well behaved. There is a 90 degree USB C Cable from TecMad on Amazon which is the perfect cable to connect your Android phone to your car. I hope this app continues to develop in a good way !! I have been using BlackPlayer for playing my saved audio and it works perfectly with Android Auto.

  79. Steve Nardone-avatar

    The app skips on music, like a really bad 60s record player. It's not streaming music, it's a file on my Samsung Galaxy S10 plus. Awesome phone, but Android Auto is garbage. Bluetooth is much preferred since it actually works and never skips.

    It's very helpful when driving, specially to look at the map. Not sure if it's only on my device or my car but I can't check What'sApp. Whenever I try it, it says that the function is not available. Besides that, everything's great.

  82. Mali Trabakul-avatar

    What is the use i.e. benefit of this app? Any of its functionality is not even close to their native app (maps, phone). It is actually dangerous to connect the phone to the car. It crashes, loosing the route, turning on camera on my phone, etc. E.g. the idea is to have "simplifyied" navigation (which is good idea) but half of the mirrored screen is covered with uslelss "tile" instead of showing the full map. Google has lots of apps with awesome design and UI, this one is total exception.

  83. Eric D-avatar

    Works well to handle calls, nav and music. Wish it didn't read all the contacts when you get a group text. Need to add a panic record button to discreetly turn on camera for when being pulled over or anything else that may happen.

    I was able to use this on an old note 4. But I recently upgraded to a Samsung S20 and I can't even find the app or get it to open when I plug it into car. Kind of annoyed since I got my 2020 Nissan Rogue sport bc of the tech and I can't even use it.

  85. Rob Button-avatar

    Great experience overall, really good for both using without a car screen and with a screen, however on my screen if I stop a journey early and switch to my music app, it still shows the last instruction at the bottom, whether I drive away or not

    I'm on a Samsung S20 Ultra and I cannot get android auto to start at all anymore. 6/24/20 Update: After a couple updates I still have nothing, I have searched the depths of the internet and come to a conclusion. Samsung Dex is preventing Android Auto from launching.

  87. Hannah Smith-avatar

    Love that I can say "Hey Google" and I can be completely hands free; whether it is a text, phone call or wanting to play music. Sometimes a glitch here and there but overall very happy with it.

  88. Byron Needham-avatar

    Very unimpressed with this app, there is a very limited selection of the apps that I have installed on my Android phone? Why do I have so much choice of the apps that I want to use on the phone and only 1 that works on Android Auto? I do not use Google Maps and don't want to! Please open up the navigation options to 3rd parties like Sygic rather than force me into Google apps that I am not interested in using.

  90. Justin W-avatar

    Great app. Only some issues with my truck and music working together but navigation is on point. With satellite view so you can see what you're heading in to and intuitive destination it's hard to get lost.

  91. Kirk Hamrah-avatar

    When it works it's awesome when disconnecting and does not reconnect which is frequent, it is considerably less awesome. The fact that I have to use Bluetooth and a wired connection makes absolutely no flipping sense.

  92. Cstay-avatar

    It was fine initially on Peugeot 3008 but now it cannot even detect Android Auto on my S20 after connecting the cable. Change to new cable and it is the same issue. Car system keeps prompting Mirrorlink only. Phone is showing Android Auto is connecting but nothing happen

  93. James Magel-avatar

    The app functions normally with no issues. I prefer my vehicles factory ui compared to using Android auto though. It actually seems to make the screen resolution worse on the vehicles infotainment screen. This is in a 2019 ranger using a Samsung note 8.

  94. Vlad Pop-avatar

    It worked just fine for months on my Pixel 2 XL and 2016 Mondeo, but the last update killed it. It won't connect anymore and USB doesn't seem to work in file transfer/Android Auto mode. Shame! Cable is fine, my wife's Pixel 2 works fine.

    My android auto is not showing in my apps screen anymore. Tried to connect to my 2019 Honda CRV but is not connected to the car's screen. My phone is Samsung note 9 running android 10. It used to work well but now I'm feeling frustrated and disappointed.

    Have not been able to connect to andriod auto for 3 months! I have tried EVERYTHING! Got a new cable, un install/re install. Read all the suport logs and nothing works!!! I have a pixel 4 and a mazda cx9. It worked for one week then it stopped. Very upset!!!

  97. Phil R-avatar

    Have to pull over and stop just to use this. Your passenger can't even use this while you drive. It's absolutely annoying to even attempt to use this. Seriously Google waze and every other app understands this but this one app is just useless until they allow your passenger to use it.

  98. Peter Engkjær-avatar

    I was very happy Android Auto, despite its random crashes and bugs, but with the latest update it doesn't work AT ALL with my car. My phone can't recognise my car anymore and vice versa. I tried uninstalling and re-updating. No dice.

  99. Scott Allan-avatar

    Very easy to use but cuts out occasionally. Not sure if it is Android Auto or my phone, hence the 4 stars. If I find it's my phone, I will adjust the rating to 5 stars.

    Works great for me on my infotainment system but it really needs customization options. I hate the black background I'm stuck with. I need options for wallpapers or I'm going to have to install an aftermarket radio.
