android auto wireless (my21)

Post by gm80 » Sun May 02, 2021 7:17 am

guys, i've read the user's manual, and there is a note I should be able to connect infotainment using wireless (after usb pairing). I did all the setup I'm able to connect via usb cable, my phone tells me the aa is available when BT and WiFi is on but.... in infotainment the aa is not working just after connecting via cable I'm able to use android, I have android 11 and the newest aa app.
anyone knows how to use it without a cable? the car's navigation here is not reliable... I used it twice and each time shown the wrong path.

It needs to be enabled with either VCDS or and ODBeleven dongle, I did the same for wireless Apple CarPlay (viewtopic.php?t=1405). There was also an option for wireless android auto (enabled, change to wireless).

I suggest you find someone nearby who has a dongle or cable to enable it for you (I would have done it if you lived nearby but I’m based in the Netherlands)

so this is just soft limitation made by seat - fantastic, my car is still under warranty so I do not want to make any unauthorized changes. also do you know any cheap dongles I could use?

I don’t know of any cheap dongles that can do it, if you get an official ODBeleven dongle you can make an backup and restore it when you go for maintenance.

I think the reason for this limitation is because the My21 is in this weird in between phase and that the refresh will have it.

If phones and sat nav etc are supposed to work on the car then people need to know why they don't like myself then what's the problem with asking?

the car's navigation is poor. I tried twice and it took me to the roads that do not exist yet..thus maybe i want to use google for more reliable routes.
