    Android Auto trbl-2017 CRV doesn't "see" my phone anymore; tried new USB cables

    I had Android Auto working initially but now it's not in the Home or Source menu anymore and the car doesn't "see" my cell plugged into it anymore. I tried different USB cables. I'm in the left USB with the phone on it. The car does connect to the phone thru Bluetooth however. The app is updated on my phone. Any ideas what's wrong?

    I've had that experience. I had to restart my phone. Then it seems to work. Happens occasionally.

    If the restart is not working, go to settings(infotainment) and see if the phone is disabled for Android Auto use. Happened to me once after a software update on the phone.

    I've been fixing this by doing a head unit restart. It definitely has to do with plugging or unplugging the phone at the "wrong" time (when car turns on or off, etc.) Maybe it's just my Moto g4

    Speaking of Android Auto... has anyone gotten any apps to work with it? (Maybe I should start a new thread?)

    I noticed that if I plug in my phone too early, it will likely have connection problems. My technique to ensure a consistent connection is the following:

    1. Start the engine
    2. Allow the bluetooth to connect to the phone and car automatically
    3. Only after the bluetooth connection is established, then I plug the usb connector into the phone.

    As far as apps: For now google maps is the only map option. Waze is anticipated to become android auto compatible later this year.
    My music apps work fine: spotify, pandora, tunein radio, google play music.
    To switch music apps, hit the headphone icon which will switch you to the first music app. Then the headphone icon will now show a small down arrow next to it. Hit it again, and it will show the other music apps so you can switch to them.

    Is bluetooth required for Android Auto to work?
    I'm always disable bluetooth on my phone.

    Yes Bluetooth should be enabled and paired with the vehicle for Android Auto to work.

    Yes, bluetooth is required.
    Once you plug in your phone, bluetooth will be turned on and paired automatically.
