Wireless Android Auto with Android 11

Post by gerdy252 » Wed Sep 16, 2020 2:41 pm

My mobile handset is a Google Pixel 4 XL, which recently got updated to the latest operating system 'Android 11', but still have to use a cable to enable Android Auto...

Google's site says Android 11 now supports wireless connection for Android Auto :
https://support.google.com/androidauto/answer/6348019

and the link in that page says the Audi Q2 2017 - is supported.

1/ Has anyone else managed to get Android Auto working with Android 11 (I think currently only available for Pixel phones)....wirelessly ?

2/ Is there a way to update the car's Android Auto app itself - I cant seem to find any menu option to push this.

I've seen the other recent post regarding using a dongle, but I'm trying to avoid that - more cables!

On a related matter; sadly the wireless phone charge tray in the car is just a teenie bit too small to actually use, when I have the slimline phone case attached. So wireless charging is out of my reach, unless I remove the protective case.....which takes away from the whole 'ease of use' concept a tad!

NO Q2 has wireless Android Auto or Apple Car Play. It has wireless charging, that is all. This is not an option that can be activated, the hardware just simply isn’t there. I use a dongle, works great. Only way to do it.

Which dongle you got.. I’m interested in getting one.. upset of connecting the phone to use Apple play, so I don’t use for that reason.

I'd love one of those dongles.

Could you possibly point me in the right direction (I have an android phone by the way)

Thanks

Guys, go on to instagram and search for “Audi Retrofits”. They have these dongles, a few videos on their insta page showcasing them. Iv seen other dongles but these work well and have 1 yr warranty. Others seems Chinese rubbish from Aliexpress. This at least looks nice.

Here is my recent post:
