    Android auto is built into the 8 series with Android 10, and if using dark mode on my OP8 night mode is always on Android auto car screen. If I turn off dark mode on phone Android auto will stay bright both night and day. Anyone else have this problem?

    yes I do as well.

    I have a pioneer head unit connected via USB.

    iirc there is a setting to change it automatically or manually on my headset.

    would be nice if it was automatic.

    I have tried using phone and car mode without success so I would say it's a bug. It was working on my Google Pixel.

    I have the opposite issue. My Android auto map is stuck on dark mode even in the day time.

    OnePlus 8 pro and Android Auto:

    Bluetooth connection seems more stable

    When you disconnect from the car the Android auto now continues to run on the phone even with the car turned off. You must now "tap to disconnect" in the slide down menu if the One UI.

    On the whole it seems to work better overall on with the OnePlus 8 pro but I have tried everything to fix being stuck in dark mode.

    I have tried using all the options in the developer options and none of them enable daylight mode.

    Android Auto has its own dev settings

    Sorry I should have said, I tried changing all the Android auto developer options.

    There is also a bug where android auto doesn't cleanly exit when unplugged which stops the phone app from working.

    I changed all of those settings my Android auto is stuck on dark maps no matter what I change in the Android auto dev settings.


    but for all the bugs Android auto has had over the years every time I get a one plus phone it gets better and better especially the connectivity.

    it's flawless now.....well except for the dark map[e]1f602[/e]

    I solved the Android auto night mode problem. I had 30 days of buyer's remorse and after finding out T-Mobile no longer sells the 7T on line I was able to find some local stores you still have them. I called T-Mobile and they sent a prepaid shipping label so I could return the OnePlus 8. Next day I was at T-Mobile store and bought the 7T for $499.00 Once home I transferred everything from 8 to 7T. The first thing I did after the transfer was check Android auto. Success it went to day mode, and later that night it was in night mode. My phone was in dark mode and never changed modes. The Android auto issue is in the 8 series.

    yeah I know it's 8 pro issue or 8 series if you have TMobile version.

    FYI I don't by the TMobile versions because they throttle the tether data speeds. They don't do it with unlocked phones.

    But my wife still has her 7 pro so I tried it and it worked as usual.

    but honestly the 8 pro delivers the best Android auto experience I have had other than the dark screen connectivity is 100x better

    update just tested it and it works fine. Android Auto now responds to the settings in on the phone.

    Not sure but I gave it a day without using it and now it works as before.

    Actually better because I get no disconnects with this phone the 8 pro.

    It is no longer stuck in dark mode for the maps I am in the car posting this message all is fine!!!!

    I am too late to the discussion, but i found out that on my oneplus 7 pro the tone option in customization is actually controlling day and night mode on android auto. Dark tone leads to night mode to stay for ever, and light mode leads to day mode
