USB cable for Android Auto

Post by Alanmelon » Sat Nov 11, 2017 9:23 pm

My Q2 was supplied with the coiled usb cable but I have to use an adapter to convert it to USB C for my phone. It's quite flaky and disconnects regularly.
I've tried 3-4 different USB cables of varying quality. Some only charge, some don't work at all but none will connect and enable Android Auto apart from the official one. Has anyone had any luck with a non Audi cable?

I use any old cable but I often have to change the settings on my phone from "usb for charging" to "midi".

When I got a phone with USB-C I initially got a cheap adapter and it worked fine. I've now bought a good-quality USB-C cable, mostly for convenience (at ... UTF8&psc=1). It's good for Android Auto as well as charging, without any changes to phone settings.
