Did you try downgrading to see if the problem goes away.

You can download any version you want, just search for "Android auto APK" and go for the APKMirror link.

Uninstall AA and install the previous version

This is how us poor sods that live in a country where AA is working perfectly well, but Google has decided that AA is not for us, has to do it. No automatic updating for us, sadly.

Yeah I have tried downgrading Android Auto , Google maps and even reverted to Android pie ( was on Q )

The funny thing is that it works after a voice command is issued and cancelled ??

Very strange...The app has actually not been updated for about a month..

I know that google has a lot of knobs, serverside, they can adjust, maybe they did something behind the curtain to make the app stop working.

I'm having the same issue although I've not tried your work around of activating voice control, I'll give that a go in a bit. Mine stopped working yesterday. The Projection button no longer changes to Android Auto but it seems to know the phone is connected as I get the Switch button pop up when I connect my phone but nothing happens now.

What phone do you have pantha007? Just wondering if it's phone specific or not, I have a Galaxy Note 9.

I tried uninstalling Android Auto and reinstalling and messing with some of the Android Auto settings but nothing seems to work :(

I can confirm that pantha007's fix of pressing the voice control button on my steering wheel also worked for me too, it jumped straight into Android Auto.

At least there's a workaround, thanks pantha007!

Like what ?

I have no problems with it at all, works just as advertised.

Do you have the latest firmware in the radio, i had lots of problems with my AA when i had 2015 firmware in the radio, but now i dont have any problems at all.

Mine stopped working about 2 weeks ago. Opens ok on the phone but the Projection doesn't change to Android Auto. I am using a OnePlus 3T. I will try downloading a previous version and see what happens.
