    So far so good with the Android 12 stable release on my 9. But I can't find driving mode in Google Maps. Any thoughts on this?

    When you type a destination into Maps you should get a directions option as per image below. 1638929418653.jpg

    I think they mean Google Assistant Driving Mode - Google's replacement for Android Auto on Phone Screens (which is no longer supported in 12). It does appear to still be missing on OnePlus.

    Is it ever going to come, or be like AOD on the 7 (never to appear)? This is a big deal to those of us who don't have an Android Auto capable head unit in our cars. Yet another huge disappointment from OP. :mad:

    Not sure, it is not something I've ever got an answer to. It is something I am after too.

    This one is so weird. If it works for every other major brand, why wouldn't it work for OP? What's so special about their architecture that a Google Android app wouldn't run on it?
