    I recently purchased a 2019 Ram Big Horn with Android Auto. My Note 8 doesn't work with it. My Note pairs with Uconnect just fine but not Android Auto. I tried my S7 and it works great. I've tried everything. Restarting, a different cable, nothing works. I plug a cable in and the phone icon switches to the Android Auto icon (as designed) but only for a split second. Anyone else have this experience?

    Not real sure why, mine works as soon as I plug it in. I really don't use it much since the wife drives the car more than I do. My van has ford sync. Have you uninstalled the android auto app and re installed? Maybe remove the Uconnect app and see if that helps.

    Android Auto also works fine for me on GMC with my Note 8.

    I haven't tried uninstalling/reinstalling the app. I'll try that. I don't have a Uconnect app on my 8. I was never told I needed it and didn't know one existed. Thanks for the input!

    Wasn't sure, I was thinking that Uconnect was set as a priority on your note.

    Also are you using the oem cable that came with your phone? And try looking into this thread I found here https://5thgenrams.com/community/thr...o-issues.1892/

    I also have the same truck as you . 19 ram bighorn. My Android Auto works perfect with my note 8.
    And you don't need the uconnect app.

    Great truck. Do you know if there's a way to plug your Note in to charge without activating Android Auto?

    My Android Auto comes on when I plug it to charge, but I can just exit Android Auto and carry on with the charging. I either swipe up to do that or push the icon at the bottom of the Android Auto screen to exit.

    Thanks for the info. I'll give that a try!

    If you have another USB that's not connected to the head, plug the phone into that one.

    Same. Only other way would be to plug it into the rear USB
