Android auto stability issues seem to crop up pretty regularly, and after last week’s Android 11 release, some users are reporting a lot of pretty important issues between the two.
Google may not tie Android Auto directly to system updates, but major updates can add sources of error to the in-car experience. As our friends at Android police recently discovered, this appears to be the case with Android 11.
Apparently, the problems encountered when Android Auto is connected to a phone running Android 11 vary from person to person. Some users say music isn’t playing smoothly, others say the calendar app is missing – although Android Auto v5.6 appears to have fixed this bug ̵
Not all drivers seem to be affected by these issues – my Pixel 4 XL seems to work perfectly fine with Android Auto on its latest build 11 – but there are definitely a significant number of people who are experiencing issues. Google hasn’t promised a solution to these issues yet, but given the widespread problems, the company is likely to have something in the works sooner rather than later.
However, some Reddit users have spotted a potential workaround. Apparently, turning off Bluetooth device scanning seems to be helping some users.
