Hi
I have a P40 Pro which I did manage to get most of the Google software working on (apart from pay and gmail notifications)
I have just purchased a car that does not have Android Auto on it, but they do have an after market add on module I can buy that would add Android Auto to my vehicle. The P40 Pro is not on the list of compatible phones. Does anyone know if this will work before I go ahead and buy the unit? The supplier can't help.

There are various phones that run Android 10 eg Google and Samsung that are listed as compatible. It also says all Android 11 phones. The P40 Pro is still on Android 10. However I have had no issues in installing Android Auto from the Play Store.

What I really want to do is to be able to run other maps in the car such as Google Mapes or Waze.
The supplier can't help as technically I shouldn't even be able to run Play Store or Google maps, all of which work 100% fine on my phone.

(Just to add I used Googleify my phone when it first came out and my Gmail account still works. I get emails through OK and Calendar syncs automatically etc. Play Store works fine and I can download apps from there - the phone is running the latest security updates and some things in Googleify seem broken, but everything that was working when I first installed this a year ago seems to still be working - just in case this helps)

Many thanks

I have installed Google Services, and Android Auto is working fine.

You need to install Android Auto from APK file.

I tried all methods that you said. It works.
Thanks from your reply, but i downloaded from the Google Play and it doesn't work on my car unit!
Yes, is working on the smartphone, but doesn't launch the android auto on the car! It is always trying to connect on USB but seems that something is wrong.
Also have to tell that i have a P30 Pro and is working great on the same car.
Any thoughts??

You can try reset your car multimedia and set it again.

Uninstall Maps and start Android Auto. It will prompt to install Maps. There you will see those apps also.

Unfortunately nothing seems to work! Had made a reset on my Renault Megane Unit, done all the steps above on my P40 Pro, but i still can't have Android Auto working on the car unit😭
The systems keeps connecting/disconnecting usb and the smartphone also starting charging mode and stopping.
It is so annoying...keep in mind that my P30 Pro still continues to work well...
Any clue?

Did you use P40 pro USB cable?
