Android Auto

Post by Splint » Mon May 06, 2019 6:29 pm

Hello

I just want to ask if any of you are experiancing problems while using Tunein Radio app whith Android Auto. My Navi 900 turns on and off. What I mean is, the screen turns on and off. It is possible to hear the sound, but sometimes the screen jams.
Could it be the app that is the problem?

Just had that on my R4.0 today.

I know my firmware version is very old (2015) and there are other problems with regards to that, and it needs to be updated.

Maybe it's the same problem you have.

Mine worked fine with Tunein for a while but then it started not showing the buttons to select navigation, phone and so on, and after that it would play the music but the screen would go completely blank.

Do you know if the firmware in your Navi 900 is new or old ?

Mine started doing this a few weeks ago with my HTC10 phone, (Android), and Navi900. I forced stopped both Android Auto and TuneIn, cleared the cache and data for both and also cleared the cache for the whole phone, (all in the phone's "Settings" menu), and then rebooted. Had to re-login to TuneIn again, but so far the problem hasn't come back. I also think that Android Auto got updated automatically at around the same time, so I can't be sure exactly which of the above actually fixed the problem.

Android auto was latest updated around April 26

I know because i have to do the updates manually as them tossers at google has decided that it is not ready to be deployed in my country yet, even though it has been used for a couple of years without any problems by users.

April 26th could well tie in with when my problem got resolved, so maybe clearing out the caches etc didn't do anything in my case. Won't do any harm to clear them out occasionally though!

I've read and seen video on YouTube of an update for AA early this summer that looks like a great improvement to how it will look on our screens. Looking forward to having the update.

Agreed, it looks promising, the old version looks a bit dated to be honest.

Now if only they would make wireless android auto stable and LG would update the firmware in the R4.0 and navi 900 to include this feature, all would be nice.

The need to physically plug it in, is still the worst "feature" in AA.
