Anyone else with Android Auto issues?
I'll preface by saying that I really don't know if it's my phone, Android Auto application, or the car causing the problem...but I can say that I just had a rental car for 6 days while traveling (Cadillac CTS with AA compatibility) and had 0 issues with Android Auto with my phone the entire time.
When I plug in my Samsung Galaxy S10 to the I-PACE, Android Auto starts up right away (as I expect) and works fine initially. However, if I run maps/navigation on AA the audio directions from Google come out choppy and stuttery, like there's a bad cell phone connection. It's annoying enough that I have to mute the direction voice. But regardless of that, whether I'm using maps, listening to Spotify, or just have my phone plugged in and running AA, anywhere from 5 minutes to 15 minutes into using Android Auto, my phone will completely shut down and reboot. Every time without fail. As I mentioned, this did not happen a single time in my 6 days with the CTS, but happens literally every time I use AA in the I-PACE. So my theory is that there's something about the way the I-PACE is handling AA that it's triggering my phone to reboot...otherwise if it was my phone, it should be rebooting whenever I use AA in any vehicle. The crappy thing about this issue is that it would be so easy for Service Dept to blame this on the AA software or my phone that I fear I'll never get anywhere if I bring it to the service dept attention. If anyone has experienced this please let me know.
