Whenever I plug mine into the Focus RS(SYNC 3) it crashes at 1st use and the Note thinks I am using DEX for PC and to turn it on.
I have tried different cables including Sammy one . and reset the phone to a clean install no joy

Basically, when connecting the Note 10+, Android Auto worked fine for the first session, then crashed on the second, and since simply won't connect until the phone does a full reboot (then will only work once and run into the same issues). At first I thought DEX was interfering (which it probably is!) but unfortunately there is no way to disable DEX apps or the USB response when plugging in an external connection.
Have others had this issue? Any ideas??
I've experienced many issues with AA with a spectrum of devices. I firsts believed that my vehicle was to blame, due to the technology differences, however I've realized that my Buick Encore Preferred II (ALL STOCK EQUIPMENT IN VEHICLE) immediately broadcasts it's Bluetooth/Wifi-Direct as soon as the head-unit/radio is supplied power. I've concluded that MY
issues with android auto came from the app recognizing device movement while I was driving.
Now, I'm no expert, but here's my suggestion.
1. Ensure the USB-C cable supports data-transfer and charging simultaneously. (I've made this mistake by ordering USB-C cables ((that only supported charging....poorly))
2. Restore Android Auto's factory settings that came with the phone, ensure any Android Auto data-backups are deleted (for troubleshooting purposes).
3. Install/Update via Play store.
4. Disable bluetooth & "forget" any paired vehicles/head-units on your phone.
5. Remove your phone from your vehicle's bluetooth memory.
At this point, your phone should be plugged in to your COMPATIBLE head-unit
***, with neither devices recognizing each other.
6. Start your vehicle's battery/engine & stay stationary.
Your phone may
immediately start Android Auto. Some head-units automatically do this for you as a "safety/handsfree" feature.
If Android Auto doesn't automatically initiate when you power your head-unit, run the application.
7. Follow your phone's on-screen prompts to finalize set-up.
8. Ensure your phone is connected to your vehicle's bluetooth.
Worked for me!
Remember, if it's not broken, don't fix it.
