Apps like Google Maps and Waze need to connect to GPS to locate users on a map and provide directions on how to get to their destination. The same applies to Android Auto. However, there is a new bug that is causing GPS issues on Android Auto. This is very complicated because it negates the smooth performance of navigation applications.
Android Auto: Now there is a mysterious problem affecting the GPS!
When the smartphone is connected to Android Auto, the signal is lost and a message appears saying “Searching for a GPS signal” as mentioned in the website automatic evolution. That is to say, no Google Maps or Waze. However, some tricks like disabling battery optimization do not make a difference in this case.
But this is not the only situation that has been talked about recently. However, the search engine giant has confirmed that it is looking into an issue with Android Auto that affects the calls we receive. At the moment, this situation does not appear to be widespread.
It’s still serious enough to get the Google team looking at it.
As reported by Google Forums, what happens is that incoming calls don’t appear in the car while Android Auto is running. In other words, they could call us but we’ll never know. This is because we have not received the notice. The only way for us to know that something is going on is to look at smart phone. It goes without saying that at that time we also have to use it to answer and talk.
But this is not the only drawback found on this platform. In fact, there is another one that was recorded on video.
There are already several reports in Google forums that Google Maps stops working and restarts while driving for no reason. This seems to happen every 5 or 10 minutes, and although the app reloads the target it’s an uncomfortable situation. Especially if you’re coming to an intersection and don’t know where to go next.
However, users have reported that this happens in both wired and wireless connections to Android Auto.
At the moment, there doesn’t seem to be any solution to this problem.
However, we have to live with it, at least until Google releases an update in this regard. However, if you are thinking of doing a full reset to solve this problem, then forget about it. It just doesn’t solve the problem and you will lose your things unnecessarily.
