    Uconnect/Android auto=hot garbage

    I have the 8.4. Uconnect and besides being limited in its settings(Why can't I have the halos stay on with the parking light) using Android auto is worthless. I have 2 phones and each one has AA issues. I have deleted and reconnected devices, changed cables and it still only works when it feels like it. I'm not sure if radio has updated itself or not but when I first got jeep it was working fine. Sad thing is, if it is a Uconnect issue, who knows when we will see a fix. On my JK I had a Daisaita 10 inch stereo which was basically an Android tablet for the car. When will manufacturers understandvthats what we really want....as soon as there's an aftermarket head solution this garbage Will be gone.....end of rant.
    Am I alone in this?

    I have zero issues using Android Auto.

    Uconnect 4C NAV, 8.4
    Samsung S8+
    Android Ver 8.0.0
    Samsung Exp Ver 9.0

    Also, how is Uconnect related to your halos?

    It's not but the lighting settings are accessed from the head unit.
    I have a Samsung 9 and a v30 both have issues with AA.

    I forgot about those settings, thanks for the reminder. Apparently I play with my Tazer JL too much. Have you reach out to your dealer or Jeep Cares yet? FWIW, I required the head unit from my JK swapped out, which became a nightmare trying to deal with SiriusXM as my VIN and original head unit remained forever linked.

    I too have nothing but issues with android auto. I have the 7" screen, 2018 JL sport. Galaxy s9+
    Android v8.0.0
    Samsung v9.0

    The screen will just go black and music will stop playing (streaming and sd card on phone)

    Unplugging it and reconnecting does nothing.
    I have deleted the app and reinstalled it but to no avail.

    Ok this may sound dumb but is there lint or something in your USB port? The only time I have issues with CarPlay & my iPhone is when thereís lint in my phones port. Itíll charge, but wonít connect and give over control.

    I thought of that too.... used air to blow out dust from recent trips.

    First post here...

    Out of curiosity.....why bother with android auto? I just connected my Note9 to my Uconnect via USB and done. Plays my tunes, calls and texts fine. I never installed android auto on my Note and honestly dont see the need to.

    If AA wasn't available to use (ie never installed on Uconnect in the first place) people wouldn't be bothered. I think the problem here is that people would like to use what has been advertised as part of their purchase. I wouldn't miss Hill Decent Control if it wasn't there, but I would be irritated if it didn't function properly since it is there.
