I don't get the appeal.
Only time I use AA is for the Cookie Monster voice in Waze that my grandchildren love. 🍪 AA does work well for me and I haven't experienced your issues. Could it be the phone or perhaps it depends on which connection? I use USB and not the 12V plug.

AA has to be over USB. I just think all this infotainment is buggy garbage.

So: scroll down in the 'App info' screen (where you have the two options "disable" and "force stop") to "Store" / "App details". Tap that and another screen comes up that now gives you the uninstall option (for Chrome). See if that works for your AA.
Got new AA today after my phone did the Aug security update. Maybe that was the trick. New AA works great. Knock on wood no issues.

I've used it a few times now. Once you get it set up, it's pretty danm nice.
1. Make sure it doesn't lock your phone's screen (that's a setting you can choose) so you don't get the ugly phone AA interface but just your standard phone screen, so you don't give up control over your phone in case you just want to use your phone for whatever AA doesn't support
2. The switching back and forth from the Jag's screen is now really simple, there's an "Exit" button in the main AA interface and your back to your Jag home screen ... so you don't give up control over that either. Switching back to AA interface you can do with the Jag's AA icon (that overlaid double arrow pointing up)
I like it!
