Hi all,


I am currently trying to connect Android Auto (wireless) to my P40 Pro and my car. Google services run on the phone, Android Auto also runs on the smartphone, but I can't get AA to show up on the display in the car. The car can though (Skoda Enyaq iV 80, similar to a VW ID.4).
In AA on the smartphone I can read a note: "Android Auto was not pre-installed on your device..." blah blah. Does anyone have Android Auto on the P40 Pro and can use it with the car's infotainment system? And what do you have to do to do that? Am I missing any specific google service?

Thanks, jennix

This might sound silly but it might work --- try a different USB cable.

Yesterday i tried to connect the phone via cable to the Infotainment System to use Android Auto. This works, but only if the phone is not connected to the Infotainment System in parallel via Bluetooth.

Wireless Android Auto still doesn't work at all with this phone and this Infotainment System, even if it was previously connected via cable.

At least it seems so. I have an older Xiaomi Pocofone F1 with LineageOS 18.1 and gApps. This phone works with AA Wireless, but it can not charge wirelessly (which the car can because a Qi charging cradle with antenna amplifier is built in). Therefore, I would already like to use the Huawei, because that is my everyday phone.

I have the same issue! And all the trouble is caused by the phone!
P40 doesn't know to move to his mobile data when the connection is made so is not providing internet.
What about the internet connection of the phone? Android Auto connects via wifi and not via wifi hotspot of the phone. So how does the internet work? Usually the phone tries to use the internet connection of the wifi when it is connected to a wifi. In this case the headunit provides wifi but no internet. Will the internet connection work anyway? How?

My car multimedia device has no wireless AA. Only using cable I can run AA. I ordered this device to use it for wireless AA. I will let you know if it works when it will arrive (few days).

Whoops ! I finally manage to connect my Huawei P40 Pro wirelessly with Android Auto on my Skoda Kodiaq My 2021.
First the car multimedia has to support AA wireless, in my case , yes.
For almost 4 months i have used AA connecting the phone with the usb cable because a small error wich i didnt realise for all this time !
After initially connect the phone thru usb you can go ahead and do it wireless and when you get the message on the phone : this Skoda not have internet connection, you want to connect ? - Choose CANCEL , and thats is. On my case , choosing CONNECT was wrong and took all tis time to understand and to look for a fix !!! Practic you need to have phone wifi on but not connected to a car network.
I have to mention : my P40 pro have Google Services
