    The question is have you got it, well have you? My understanding was this is being rolled out with android 12, thus users on stock OOS shouldn't currently have this option, certainly I don't.

    Meanwhile I also got an answer from OnePlus support. They told me I could still use Android Auto. I should be sympathetic about this. So I feel vindicated, that's a problem of OnePlus and not only a server side problem of Google.

    Any updates on this? I don't see the "Driving Mode Toggle" in the Google Maps settings. Running an OP9 with Android 12 stable (just released today).

    Sigh. You can't use Android Auto if your car doesn't support it.

    You can still sideload the app though, surely?

    Sideload what? Google Maps? Have it. But the specific feature we're looking for is inexplicably missing in OP phones.

    That app is a POS. The Google Maps functionality looked much better.

    Fair enough, works fine for connecting my OP7T to my 2013 mini.

    It's just a real mystery how Google Maps runs fine on OP phones but doesn't have a feature present in the app on all other phones. Frustrating.

    I agree with that but as long as the android auto for phones app continues to work, for me, the situation isn't a bust.
