    I bought a Moto G4 Play specifically to use as a "Google Maps device".
    So it sits in my car (an Opel Astra, same stereo/sat nav as may Buicks, Chevys etc) day and night, connected to the USB for the sat nav all the time.

    Most of the time, it works like a charm. But when I leave the car, and come back the next morning (the Moto still inside, still connected to USB), Android Auto often times does not pop up on my head unit/ the radio. Android Auto is just not available, or it shows for around 10 seconds and then disconnects.

    I either have to unplug and plug my phone to make it work again, or to keep it plugged in but to stop and re-start Android Auto and then it works. Sometimes unplugging works, sometimes restarting Android Auto works - when I need to do what is unclear to me.

    Any idea why Android Auto doesn't start smoothly all the time in the morning?
    Any suggestions what I could try?
    Any experience with other Android phones left in the car overnight, connected to the car?

    I'd really appreciate any help, guys.

    PS: The Moto G4 Play runs Android 6 and has one of the "cleanest" Androids on the market.

    Same Problem with my Moto G4, I have 2018 Honda that when it is connected and working, turn the car off, come back and not starting android auto. I have change cables, format phone, no change.

    I did try it in Chevy system and it work fine. I am thinking it has something to do with the turbo charge and the Honda since it support higher charging speed.

    I ended up using my old Nexus 5 phone dedicated to the car, and it works perfectly.

    If I had to guess which I am I'd say your ram is tapping out, checking the spec's of the Moto G4 it only has 2 gigs of ram and it probably uses half if not more to run the OS without anything running, Android Auto is resource hungry it's a big app.
