If you're experiencing Android Auto connectivity issues, ensure that you are using a high-quality USB cable that is compatible with both your Android device and the USB port in your Subaru. A faulty or incompatible cable can cause connection issues. An alternative option is to consider using Android Auto Wireless. While not all Subaru models support wireless Android Auto out of the box, you can explore aftermarket solutions such as AAWireless. AAWireless is a device that enables wireless Android Auto connectivity in select vehicles. By switching to Android Auto Wireless, you can eliminate the need for a USB cable and enjoy a wireless connection between your Android device and the Subaru's infotainment system. Please note that compatibility may vary depending on the specific Subaru model and infotainment system.
