    I got a new Jeep Renegade about a week and a half ago Android auto was set up that day and I was able to use my maps on my phone on the display in the Jeep. Then it would occasionally not show as Android connect and only show the maps on the phone. I re-downloaded Android auto and reconnected the car with my phone as a new device. I can't seem to get the car added as a device on my phone though. Could this possibly just be a USB cord issue? Anybody with experience it will be gratefully appreciated

    I tried a brand new cable made by Anker today didn't seem to make a difference I can check and see if it needs an update I think I can do that in the touchscreen menu

    Weird - like it just quit working after it was working. Dumped and reinstalled everything and it's been good to go since.

    Really, that's strange
    Did you take AA out of battery optimized?

    No. I just uninstalled AA from the phone, unpaired the car, deleted the phone from the car, them reset everything back up.

    Try resetting the network settings in General Mgt>reset>network settings. I've had a few Bluetooth issues which doing this has resolved them.

    It could be usb cable, although I've found 2 things.helpful after checking the quality of the cable. First is to allow USB debugging. To do this go to
    Settings/system/developer options/ then scroll and toggle USB debugging to the on position. Next, before I connect my phone to the USB in the car, I have to go in and change USB configuration from charging to MTP (media transfer protocol). To do this settings/system/developer options. Then scroll to "select USB configuration". Tap it, change to MTP. This has to be done every time you enter the car. It's a problem with the Android updates that has changed something and you need to do this every time. Hope this helps.
