My Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has suddenly lost data connection with the system. I have restarted, replaced the charging/data cable, but no luck. When I plug it in, there is no "loading" message and no Android Auto option on the dashboard, only Smartphone Connection. When I try that, it says make sure your phone cable is plugged into the USB socket with the smartphone icon on the lid. It is plugged into that socket. I thought maybe the USB socket was bad, but the phone is charging, so at least that is working.
any suggestions?
thanks

Thank you, BuzzWinny! I eventually got it to work by deleting everything, re-installing Android Auto, and at some point it loaded as it normally should. Thanks for the suggestions.

Funny. Mine is doing the same thing, but I think it's the cable. WIsh AA would ust run on BT. Oh well, beats a $2500 Nav option ;-)

Whats funny is that you can download google maps onto your headunit and just use that
Then it's funny we use Android auto mostly for the navigation feature?

How do I into Google maps or Waze on the head?

Thanks in advance

Let's be clear, and head unit hack that requires the installation of Google play services will only create problems and limitations. The AA version of maps is by far superior. It was over aggressive hacking such has this that caused people to irresponsibly brick the head unit and then take it to Honda under warranty. Honda had to issue a service news article alerting stores to look out for hacked head units when diagnosing problems with it

That said, there are some benefits associated with a simpler HondaHack installation without Google play services, and we have a whole thread associated with it.

Tldr, the solution to problems with Android auto connectivity is not hacking the head unit; it's solving the connectivity problem as it is intermittent and fairly rare since the software updates.

Who mentioned hacking? I did not imply a hack. But thanks

Dino, implicitly, because you have to install an app literally called HondaHack to install anything on the head unit, including Google maps. While many have successfully installed Honda Hack, Google maps requires installing a bunch of extra hacky stuff that most have reported makes the HU unusable. I should have been more clear.

It's deep in the settings but when this happened to my wife's '18, I was able to discover that android auto had been disabled for all phones saved in the system. Without us doing anything. She was driving down the highway and AA just quit. Let me know if you can't find it and I will try to figure out how I got there before.

I for one would really appreciate your time with trying to find how you got to that setting.
Cuz I can't seem to find it anywhere on my 2018 CR-V touring.

Much obliged for your efforts on my behalf.
