Android auto only works when the USB is plugged into the top port in the truck.

Like I said you probably already know, so of so, disregard my response...ibut I thought I'd throw it out there just in case, since I myself just figured that part out.
thanks, I did try that. I tried a bunch.

Its a pretty simple process, not sure what is up.

Did you try a different cable? Might want to give it a try.

Overall the only thing I like about Android auto is being able to text with voice. And having a little bit better control over podcasts...The rest is meh in my humble opinion.

Android audio is much better than car play and had been flawless for me the only trouble I had was using a shitty cable at first but after changing to a proper cable its been fine

All I want is for google maps to work, my 801a doesnt have nav.

I could try a different cable I guess. My music will play through android auto, thats it.

Theres only like 4 steps in the video I saw. I get to the point where you turn on android auto, and in the video he plugs it in and gets a popup on the truck screen to connect, I never get that.
