I bought this usb hub (bus powered). https://www.transcend-info.com/Products/No-693
Connected to usb in armrest.
But it doesnt work. Tried plugging phone and flash drive. Working for 5s then stops. Even if i connect only phone or just flash drive it doesnt work.
But without hub is working ok.
I have tested hub on computer and is working fine.

I bought a cheap ($A10) usb hub.

So far I am able to have Note8 connected for Android Auto, and a usb key filled with music.

Sometimes, the usb key is not recognized when I start the car. I just unplug it and plug it back in and all is fine. I am going to try a second usb key and see whether it recognizes that as well.

Update to my previous message. I just tested 2 usb keys with music, and my Note8 plugged into Android Auto.
I was able to use the Media button to choose between the music on the 2 usb keys, the music on my Note 8, and Android Auto was working as well.
Next I will try with 3 usb keys!

Just purchased an Anker 4-port USB 3.0 Hub from Amazon. Tested it with my NAVI 900 system and it works perfectly. Phone connects to car, Android Auto works and can access a USB stick at same time via 'Media' and play music, videos.

I bought this and it is working fine. I have one pendrive always in for music, and 2 cables for mobile (of course only one is working with android auto at a time, and you cannot use HUB with iPhone)

I bought this exact same hub and mine doesn't work with the cars usb port but works fine on a laptop, I wonder if there is a difference in the power of the usb ports in our cars depending on whether or not you have the dual rear ports? My SRI doesn't have rear ports does your car?
