If you're encountering connectivity issues with Android Auto in your Toyota vehicle, start by ensuring that you are using a reliable USB cable that is compatible with both your Android device and the USB port in your Toyota. Using a substandard or incompatible cable can lead to connection problems. If you're still experiencing USB connectivity issues, it may be worth exploring alternative options for Android Auto.
While not all Toyota models come with native support for wireless Android Auto, there are aftermarket solutions available, including AAWireless. AAWireless is a device that enables wireless Android Auto connectivity in select vehicles, offering a cable-free connection between your Android device and your Toyota's infotainment system. It's important to note that compatibility may vary depending on the specific Toyota model and infotainment system.
If you're interested in obtaining an AAWireless device for your Toyota, you can find it on our webshop (Europe) or on platforms like Amazon (UK & US). However, please note that it is recommended to verify the compatibility of AAWireless with your Toyota model before making a purchase.
In case you are already using AAWireless:
- Please make sure that you are on firmware version 2.0.0 or higher, after that please open "Device settings" and press "Wi-Fi settings" and try different Wi-Fi channels.
- Please wipe the Bluetooth connection from the phone's side and try reconnecting to AAWireless.
- Please enable Passthrough from the companion app.
- Please check using different USB-C cables. Sometimes the cable causes connection issues.
- Please make sure battery optimization is not on in your phone settings.
- Make sure Google Play Service and Android Auto, Google Maps, Waze and Google app have all the permissions enabled.
- Please clear the cache and storage of AA & Google Play Service and reboot the phone after that.
- If possible, please check with another phone.
