Re:Android Auto Autoconnect Issue

Brand new moto e 2020 with no third party apps installed and the latest software update and this piece of junk doesn’t automatically open android auto with the stock cable. That’s the only reason I bought it. Thanks Motorola or Lenovo or whatever company/country owns this junk. Worse than useless!

Re:Android Auto Autoconnect Issue

I have a Honda Pilot 2018 and a moto g stylus, I have similar issues, my husband's LG phone connects with no problem, I spend 2-3 minutes connecting to Android auto each time I get into the car, it's a hassle, tempted to get a new phone just due to this otherwise phone is great. I can't find the right combo/order pattern to unlock, connect to usb, device connect to make it connect constantly and immediately, and shouldn't have to when other phones just connect easily.

Best thing I've found to use my Moto G Power (2020/Android 11) with Android Auto is the "AA Wireless" purpose-built adapter being sold on IndieGoGo for $85. It is connected to the car's wired USB connection, and contains a WiFi hotspot to which the phone connects when you're in the vehicle.  The device handles all of the handshaking with Android Auto in the car such than you pretty much just hop into the car and go... no cables to connect and Android Auto is running with the phone connected wirelessly in about 20 seconds after you start the car.

 

BTW... it helps to set your car up as a "trusted device" in Smart Lock to keep it unlocked while connected to the car's bluetooth.
