Hello All,

I am kind of furious right now.
Did couple of trips with my Mi 11 Ultra using Android Auto wirelessly.

When I am not charging the phone it gets warm or really warm and works fine.
Only issue then is the battery drain which is more or less a 1% a minute.

While charging the phone on the 18W induction charger or using a QC charger with a cable the phone overheats.
It's hot to the touch. It displays multiple "overheating" popups. Screen is really dark too.

Normally I can't feel any heat from the phone under normal use. Using cameras makes it a bit warm as does gaming but AA just kills it.

Does anyone use Android Auto regularly with Mi 11 Ultra? Are you experiencing similar issues?

Try using an old-style 5V 2A charger, not QC.
Preferably don'use a wireless charger.

Anyway, using wireless Android Auto and a cable charger is a nonsense, then use Android Auto connected by cable to the car stereo.

Battery drain is just why wireless Android Auto till now has had only few implementations by car manufacturers...

I don't think using wired AA is an option in BMW :(

Consider yourself lucky!

Most people here can't even get AA to work on this device 😂😂😂

I use it in my pocket sometimes for Google maps navigation when riding a motorcycle and it gets hot 🔥

If you change the 5g to 4g it stays noticably cooler

I blocked 5g since I had the phone :(

Some sites tell that Mi 11 Ultra got an update to fix overheating issues at the end of July. But last EU Rom update was in June. FFS Xiaomi give us the updates!
