Hi
I forced Android Auto to use wireless connection using developer options.

AA works now wireless, but while connected to the car with operating AA I have no internet connection.

It seems that the phone is trying to use data from the car connecting to its wifi hotspot (but the car has not a data plan).

If I disable the car hotspot or disable the wifi in the phone AA is no more working.

Any idea?

Have you tried enabling the Settings -> Wi-Fi -> More settings -> Wi-Fi+ option?

If this option is enabled and if Internet is not available through your Wi-Fi connection then the phone should use your phone's mobile data...

Thanks for your reply.
Yes I tried but nothing changes.

I think it's because network connection between phone and car works well.
Car has an esim but it's locked only to work on manufacturer website (phone navigation is ok but only inside that website)

(extremely bold and probably not a valid guess) It may mean that, Wi-Fi of your car lets the phone resolve domains and this would lead the phone to think as if it can connect to the Internet through this Wi-Fi connection.

If you've not already limited network access to some applications and you don't mind changing restrictions when you get in and get out of the car:
Settings -> Mobile network -> Data usage -> Network access : remove Wi-Fi access of the apps when you are in the car, so that the Wi-Fi restricted apps are forced to use Mobile data only..

Ich habe genau das gleiche Problem mit dem P30 Pro und AAWireless. ich habe jetzt schon alle einstelungen durch auch die oben beschrieben. Denke es liegt an der Software des P30.

I think I solved the problem. Now it works:
Edit car wifi connection with mobile.
Add a fake proxy.
Now android auto works wireless and connection is working too.

Noch ne Lösung, da ich auch Probleme mit dem AAWireless und Internet gleichzeitig zum WLAN hatte:
Ich hab das WLAN von AAWireless aus meinen gemerkten WLAN raus geschmissen. Danach ans Auto und die Verbindung herstellen lassen. Dabei fragt er dann ob er mit dem AAWireless WLAN verbinden soll obwohl das kein Internet hat. Diese Meldung muss zwingend ignoriert werden, also weder Abbrechen noch Verbinden. Dann nutzt er WLAN und 4G gleichzeitig. (Ach und beim WLAN muss natürlich WIFI+ aktiv sein! Findet sich bei den WLAN Einstellungen unter dem Anschalten-Knopf.)

Another Solution for the Wifi and Internet-problem:
Makes sure you delete the AAWireless wifi from your list of known wifi. Then reconnect to AAwireless in your car. If asked to connect to wifi without internet absolutely ignore this! Don't pres anything. not connect and not cancel. Then wifi and 4G are both working. (Make sure you have wifi+ enabled in your wifi settings!!)
