Phone switches off when connected to android auto

Post by Bonzo » Thu Oct 10, 2019 5:38 am

When connecting to android auto my phone ( Samsung S9) turns itself off after about 30 secs,

I am using a genuine Samsung cable, can anyone help as to why this is happening?

I'd be interested as I have a similar issue with my Huawei Mate10 - android auto just keeps resetting while using waze & castbox together / or separatley

Android auto wouldn't work at all with the USB cable supplied by Seat .
Have you tried keeping the screen on your phone on all the time ?

I have an S9, had problems then bought a new (premium) short cable for the car, fine ever since.

On a couple of occasions has failed to connect, just unplug and try again. I think the type of plug doesn't always make contact properly. The phone screen will blank (but phone doesn't turn off) what delay do you have in phone settings, display, phone timeout (might explain the going blank after 30 seconds, but shouldn't turn it off)

Try going into apps and forcing an update for android auto. From memory there was a version which seemed to have problems. If you still have problems try another cable


I don't use waze, but use google maps (traffic) . However I haven't worked out how to turn off night mode, so my car display changes from light to dark every time I drive under trees or a bridge and auto headlights turn on. Anyone know how to fix this
