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.
