Google Maps bug on Android Auto causes navigation to drop for some users
Google Maps on Android Auto is designed to give you uninterrupted directions on the road without asking you to touch the screen, but a new bug seems to be blocking some -use from having an anonymous experience with the app.
As seen by Autoevolution, the app maintains updates for multiple users while in navigation mode. This happens every five to 10 minutes for no reason.
The problem seems to occur regardless of which Android phone is being used. Some of those affected complained on the Google forum, and they own a Huawei Mate 20 Pro and a Google Pixel 3 XL. The owner of Vivo X70 Pro even caught the case in action.
According to forum comments, the problem is affecting both wireless and wireless Android Auto connections. However, based on the number of complaints on the forum, the beast seems to be limited. This means that it is not as widespread as we fear.
Unfortunately for those who suffer from the problem, a solution is out of reach right now, and Google has not yet adopted the beast. This means that the usual procedures, such as resetting the phone or clearing the cache, do not seem to solve the issue.
It is unclear how many people are affected by the problem. Android Central has reached out to Google for a report, and we'll update this post as soon as we hear back.
