Hi,
Is it possible to use Google map and watch YouTube in the same time?
I have tried AA mirror, but when I tried to use Google map on my phone, it complains Google map cannot show in the phone due to I already connect to Android Auto...

Good evening to everybody,
I am experiencing a problem with the app Screen2Auto.
I run the last version of the app on a Huawei P30Pro not rooted, installed via AAAD.
The phone runs Android 10 and Android Auto 6.7.61.
The app starts without problem and I can see the display of the phone in my Opel Corsa F but when I try to open an app, the touch screen in the app zone is not working anymore but the rest of the screen goes.
I can just double tap to go back to the menu, click on the sidebar to go again to the main S2A screen or go to the main AA screen.
Also the zone reserved to the opened app is darker, like there is something over it that does not permit that zone of screen to be controlled by touch screen.
I tried also the app on the simulator google application on my pc and the behavior is exactly the same.

Is there any way to solve it?
Thanks.

Hi. you should use magisk v20.4. You can not use touch screen with newest magisk versions. I dont know why but it is the solution.

So far, my Galaxy S7 (G930V) on Android 8 is still working with Android Auto 6.4.
I've gotten notifications that I will need to update soon but they haven't cut me off yet.

Same problem than Benker.
When I lunch Screen2auto, I have this message "no new message during this drive"
It worked fine 2 month ago (youtube, netflix, etc...) I already try lot of thing but no way...
I'm using redmi note 7, on android 10, android auto 6.7.112904 , Screen2auto 3.5.6, magisk 20.4
Any idea solve it ??
Thanks

I had the same issue and I patched all custom apps within AA AIO Tweaker (first row, right button) and it works now. Give it a try.

Same issue. "No new message during this drive". First time trying S2A. Using Non-root, Galaxy S7, Android 8.0.0. AA 6.7.612934. FYI, same issue with some other apps (ie. Textra). Unfortunately, root is not an option right now, so can't try AIO Tweaker.

I'm going to try to uninstall S2A then reinstall using the ADB method. Does anyone have S2A on non-root phone working with AA 6.7 or 6.8?

Originally installed using ADB or AAAD?
I used the automatic install version using ADB on the inceptive.ru site. I couldn't get AAAD to work for me.
I have problems using the touchscreen but it works good enough for the app I use in S2A. It doesn't work good on apps that need a lot of interaction.

Also, I sometimes have problems with Android Auto but I don't think this is related to S2A.

XIOMi Mi11 lIte, MIUI12.5, Android 11, root with Magisk 23,S2A latest version 3.5.6, Android Auto 6.8.6...
Screen2Auto is started from Android auto correctly and shows its launcher. Screen on phone correctly rotates. But when any application (or Home phone screen) is requested, only black screen with a white ring is shown on car screen. Simply, the application is correctly running on phone, but mirroring does not work. The white ring on screen can be moved by finger touch, and return to launcher is working. But no other possible :-(. Any advice?

I have a weird issue with Screen2Auto. Everything works as intended, both touch and streaming. The problem is with disconnecting - after phone removal from a headunit, there is 80% chance of hanging some elements of UI. Sometimes recent apps button doesnt work and after locking the screen it fails to wake up until hard reboot. In other cases, after a minute phone is bootlooping or literally nothing happens and everything works great. Disabling screen cast from S2A before disconnecting from a car seems to somewhat reduce amount of crashes.
I have an Asus Zenfone 6, stock android 11, rooted. The issue persists regardless of "restore screen after disconnecting" is on or off. No settings combination seems to fix it.

EDIT: latest S2A, Android Auto 6.8 - issue was present on older versions aswell.

I was successful installing S2A using the manual ADB method and it works!!! Yay!! Now I just need to figure out why most video apps (Sling, Fox), and some regular apps don't show the video but will show the overlay controls on my HU, while they stream OK on my phone at the same time.

Okay so I had to get a new s20 ultra because my old phone screen cracked. On my old phone I have aaad pro install which I also installed screen2auto. When Android auto first start doing the forced updates it took me awhile get screen2auto to show on my Android auto car screen but I eventually got it to work. Now on my new phone I have the same Android auto version also the same screen2auto version but when I plug my new phone up to the USB screen2auto doesn't show up on the screen, but when I plug my old phone up to the USB screen2auto does show up on the screen. All the settings and versions of the programs are the same so what am I doing wrong am I missing something. I am using Android auto version 6.7.612934 and I am using screen2auto version 3.56. I have three days to turn my old phone in please help if you need any more information or clarification just ask. By the way both phones run Android 11.

    Application features:
    - The main reason for creating this application is working with Android 9 Pie
    1. Сompletely new application combining AAMirror & AAStream features.
    2. Additional functions: clock, dimming, selection of resolutions, etc.
    3. Ability to choose the automatic launch of any application at A2M startup.
    4. Floating button to control the application from the HU screen.
    5. Ability to reset if incorrect output and resolution distortion.
    6. Many other chips...

    Installation and setup:
    1. Download and Install Screen2Auto
    6760829d5c83bfb472ea0a96d8b0efde.png
    2. Enable developper settings in Android Auto and enable Unkown sources in developper settings.
    1. Launch on the Android Auto mobile device

    3. In the menu that opens, tap on the gear (settings). Then we crawl to the very bottom of the menu that opens: "Version 4.5. *** - release".
    4. 10 times tap on the display of the version of Android Auto, a window will appear where we must agree with what we are doing. Click "Yes."
    5. Go to the menu (tap "three points") and select the tab "For Developers" that appears in the menu
    6. In the last line, put a checkmark "Unknown sources" or use other settings of the developer's menu.
    3. Use the AA AIO TWEAKER from @shmykelsa for activation third-party applications.
    4. Launch the application and perform the initial setup of permission recovery. Click on the button and save them.

    5. Make the necessary settings as desired.
    Warning:
    If, after turning off the smartphone or exiting AA (turned off the car, closed the emulator, removed the USB), the resolution of the smartphone did not return to its original state (the recovery settings, failure, smartphone features, etc. were set incorrectly, etc.), you need go to Settings → Reset settings and select the WM SIZE RESET option. Resolution will be restored to factory.
