Well I've upgraded as of yesterday so we'll see!
I am a beta tester and while testing 2.1.0 we found this issue. As the devs told me this bug was there since 2.0.0, but got worse on 2.1.0.... (no sound at all anymore) so they pushed the bugfix version 2.0.1.Well I've upgraded as of yesterday so we'll see!
I checked the change log here and didn't see reference to this issue:
Do you have a source for this info?
This is great news - thanks for sharing the detail. My problem with audio dropping did in fact start with v2.0, however I was only on 1.12 for about a week prior (just received my AAWireless unit in late April).
First need to know what the issue is. Are you ok with updating to 2.0.1 again and shooting in a bug report?Hello,
after several days of testing, version 1.8 works flawlessly, so the culprit was indeed the new firmware from version 2.0 onward, for some reason. If you need the information my head unit is a Pioneer AVH-Z9200DAB. I will stay with 1.8 if the issue with my head unit will not be resolved.
I had written here and to support about the issue, but anyway it was a problem where randomly video in head unit goes off and displays a black screen with a text indicating "for using android auto please stop the car and check your android phone" phone was normal , and audio infications from navigator still continue to work , and last song finished playing. So it was not a complete disconnection , but a video disconnection.
I mean I technically need to know what the issue is, bug report might be helpful did this happen in passthrough mode as well?I had written here and to support about the issue, but anyway it was a problem where randomly video in head unit goes off and displays a black screen with a text indicating "for using android auto please stop the car and check your android phone" phone was normal , and audio infications from navigator still continue to work , and last song finished playing. So it was not a complete disconnection , but a video disconnection.
Yes it happened even in passthrough mode. I could flash again V2 for debugging , but then I would need to immediately switch back to 1.8
I wanted to confirm it was MIUI cutting wifi/BT, but I tried to register there (a few times) without any luck. Keeps getting flagged as spam behaviour?Found this thread whilst searching for the MIUI bug but they haven't found a fix. They seem to imply its more related to bluetooth dropping when the mobile data signal goes rather than wifi. No fix and I'm slightly confused by that site in that it appears to be a community effort to build pure Miui roms but are using the xiaomi.eu domain. Dev doesn't seem interested and bat's it off as an AA issue.
Hi everyone, I have a problem which I noticed when using AAWireless (Android Auto Wireless Adapter). Whenever the cellular network is gone for a short time (dead zone, underground car park), the Wi-Fi connection from the Mi 11 Ultra to AAWireless is disconnected. As soon as the cellular network...xiaomi.eu
Yeah it's unfortunate that some devs appear to have that attitude. I have had a response from my feedback submission which was to state what router I'm using and to enable WiFi logging, record the time it happens and then submit the logs. Proving a bit challenging to get the timing right on that one. So I've replied with the link above for the moment. I'm getting closer to replacing the ROM on my phone due to this.I wanted to confirm it was MIUI cutting wifi/BT, but I tried to register there (a few times) without any luck.

Either way, the dev who posted in the thread seems adamant it’s down to AAWireless (without evidence) and says to contact Google for help. This is after complaining about the initial edited log attached, demanding a full unaltered log, then complaining the full log is too big to go through.
If this is typical behaviour, it doesn’t look like there will be a fix any time soon.
I’ve seen a few people mention that PixelExperience fixes the issue, but I decided against changing. I would probably end up with a few other issues that are just as annoying, to me anyway.Yeah it's unfortunate that some devs appear to have that attitude.

Sounds very complex I'll build this feature into the next version of the app, possibly this week. Care to test?I've been happily using AAwirelsss in my Kia Stinger, but I do have a few notes on my specific installation that others might find helpful.
Instead of using the built in start / stop detection, I made a Y cable that hooks up the USB data lines and ground to my head unit, but power is pulled from a cigarette lighter USB adapter. I don't know if this is safe on all cars, but it worked on mine.
I have quite a few devices in my car I need to share internet with, and I do not want to buy an extra hotspot., so I had to make a few tweaks on my phone to make my phone's hot spot play nice with AAwireless. In the past I simply had a macrodroid script set up so that when my bluetooth connects to the car, it started my phone's hot spot.
Unfortunately, the limited wifi connection to AAwireless seems to confuse my phone's hotspot, and it won't share any internet once connected to AAwireless.
I found the trick was to to have Macrodroid enable my hotspot, then disable wifi, forcing the hot spot to share my cellular data connection, then reenable wifi, and script connecting to AAwireless manually.
The AAwireless password is the SHA-1 of the device name in upper case.
Note: AAwireless does currently support connecting through a hot spot, but only a hot spot that isn't also your AAwireless phone. Support for connecting via your phone's built in hot spot is eventually coming, but for now the method I use above has worked well for me.
Haha nice! I'll pass it on to our UI/UX designer We have some UX changes in the pipeline, but it doesn't have the highest prio right now as you can imagine.
Regarding the broken day / nightmode cycle:
I also have this problem, and I read a few days ago that it was due to a combination of updated Google Maps and Android Auto.
The combination which should work:
Android Auto: 7.5.621344
Google Maps: 11.31.1
You finde all these old versions on apkmirror.com, or similar sites.
Didn't have the time to check this out myself.
While I do like these ideas technically. From an UX perspective I don't know.@Snirpo
Why don't you use a Y-cable? Data plugs into the USB and electric power from the cigarette lighter plug.
By this you can check the voltage on the cigarette lighter plug. Is it 12.x Volts, you know the engine is off. Then you wait for a timeout of 2 minutes after the phone disconnected and turn off AAWireless. As soon as the voltage is 14.x Volts, you know that the engine is running and turn AAWireless on. You could sell this as an addon cable for people who need this.
Another solution is to make it based on vibrations/accelerations. The early bluetooth handsfree sets used a similar way to check if the door was opened. I don't know if there is a sensor on the board.
Another idea is to carefully check how stable the 5V from USB is during engine start as the ICs have to control the output voltage based on the input voltage (input voltage should drop during engine cranking). I guess you will see a voltage control behavior. I think it will drop for a short time and then go over 5V until the controller sets the 5V stable. And here you can start AAWireless. As soon as the phone disconnects keep a long enough timeout of 5 minutes or so to make sure that noone tries to reconnect. Then you can turn off AAWireless. You could sell this as an addon cable for people who need this.
These are just some ideas...
Yes rebooting is a band-aid solution for sure. But I think it would be a good thing to add in any case. Most devices I own have an option somewhere in the menu for a reboot. Hopefully it's not too difficult to implement.
I've already waited patiently for delivery 3 months more than expected - I ordered In April and was coming in June but now that's looking like October. Now I read on the indiegogo forum that people in the UK are being charged an additional €27 by the Royal mail as the UK is now not in the EU.
Just received my AAWireless, and will plug in and test tonight. Love the packaging, looks great! However… Since it was shipped from Hong Kong I was forced to pay a rather substantial import fee and duties on this bad boy. I was under the impression that they would be shipped from within the EU? Is it stands now I’m EUR 27,00 poorer

Looks like you are in the UK which is outside EU and also there is no way to pre-pay taxes with shipping company any more either....
This is a crazy. An additional $10 was already taken for delivery and it was meant to ship from the EU. I suspect the units have been shipped by Royal Mail / Dutch post. The Royal Mail rips off people in the UK because they add another £11 in admin fees on top of the 20% VAT even though goods up to £135 should be exempt.
So not only has VAT been charged coming into the EU from China, it has also been charged coming into the UK ON TOP of the VAT already paid in the EU.
This is just rubbish. What the guys need to do is either ship it from Hong Kong which can cost £0.20 (there are hundreds of chinese ebay and aliexpress sellers doing this already
The $10 postage already taken should then be refunded.
The other way round it is send the item from Hong Kong and to mark the item as a gift and providing it is below £39 there is NO VAT to pay and NO Royal mail admin fee. Actually as the original product was $57 - roughly £41.25 This wouldn't be a crime seeing as we have had to wait soo long. This could also mean the $10 delivery could be refunded
The other way is to ship it via fedex and state the ex-vat cost coming from china and then add 20% vat that the developer should be paying to the UK HMRC.
Sadly if that doesn't take place, EVERYONE IN THE UK will feel ripped off because of the poor delivery and poor choices made by the developers.
