    I have a Nexus 5X and I installed the latest November 5 security patch update. However after the update my car doesn't detect Android Auto on my phone at all. It used to work without any issues whatsoever earlier.

    I've tried my friend's phone which is a Pixel 2 and it works flawlessly with my Car/cable. Even he has the November security path update.

    I've tried the obvious fixes:
    1. Clearing data/cache of Android Auto app.
    2. Uninstalling and reinstalling the Android Auto app.
    3. Checking permissions of the app.

    If there anything else I can try before I resort to Factory Data reset.

    Welcome to Android Central! Did you also try wiping the cache partition for the phone?

    I'd like to second this. It happened with my 5x this morning. Installed the update last night, and now the car doesn't even detect it.

    After some digging around I found that needed to enable Developer options again and enable USB debugging. Picked it up straight away when I just tested it.
    This may be a workaround though as I am no expert

    Same thing happened to me since the update I installed 2 days ago in my Nexus 5x. Really frustrating. Same cable I used till now, which worked perfectly so far. After the update, it just stopped working, just opens up in my phone instead. Will try out your workaround and see.
