    Since OOS 9.0, I have some problems with android auto (which are not solved by OOS 9.0.1):

    *waze stops locating me after some time
    *Google maps doesn't launch normally until I Unlock the screen of the phone (the window appears, then disappears, then appears then disappear...)
    *sometimes, a notification appears "vocal command not available" (It's written in French 'cause i' m French so may be it's not the exact sentence [e]1f609[/e]

    Am I the only one with these problems?
    Is there a solution?

    Thanks in advance

    About the "vocal command not available": I think it's a new feature. It appears when there is no internet access (weak signal or missing field), so it save yourself from saying "Ok Google" for nothing.

    For me: it fails to auto start when the phone joins to my car bluetooth. It appears for a second, then it closes itself.
    I had, every tyme I enter my car, to start the app two times before it stays open.

    I don't use Waze, so I can't check your problem.

    As far as I know Android Auto doesn't work properly via Bluetooth for most phones except the Pixel phones.
    You'll have to use a USB cable to use it properly. Also, Android Auto probably hasn't been updated to support Android 9.0.

    About the unlocking issue, I think it's since a recent update of Android Auto.

    Had the same issue that waze on android auto sometimes lost gps connection after the update to 9.0.2.
    Got it most of the times working by starting to drive with Waze on my phone and later connection it to android auto.

    What I did notice was thatwhen I was driving though a tunnel the GPS connection never came back. But when switching to Spotify (or any other non routing screen) it seemed that in the background it was running again. When I switched back to Waze it lost connection again.
    Tried some stuff but what seemed to be working was disabling developer options. Then everything worked again.
    Seems to me that enabling developer options was the cause (need it for app development though).

    For what it's worth, version 3.5.5830 (from apkmirror) works on my OP6. Versions 3.6 and 3.7 (newest as of typing this) crashes immediately on launch. version 3.7 works on my dad's Galaxy A3.

    On my OP5T with OOS9.0.3 Android Auto doesn't even show up in the Play store. When I try to install it via the browser version of the play store it says my device is not compatible.

    So it seems I can't use Android Auto on my brand new Citroën C5 Aircross???

    Android Auto is only launched in a small number of countries. So if you - like me - can't download it through the Play store, you need to go through websites like apkmirror.com (direct link to Android Auto)

    FWIW, version 3.9.5850 works on my OP6.
