Mishaal Rahman, former editor-in-chief of XDA Developers, explained how the most recent Android auto-update works.
A diagnostic tool alerts you when a USB port does not work.
The diagnostic tool may determine whether the USB connection is the cause of your inability to connect your phone to your car.
According to Rahman’s photos, the “USB Startup Diagnostics” function will detect whether a USB cable has been plugged in or not, as well as the condition of the cable.
Using a connection that is less than three feet long and does not “use USB hubs or cable extensions” is the recommended method for connecting your phone to your automobile.
A new USB cable diagnostic tool has been included in Google’s Android Auto-update
Getting the right cable may be easier said than done. Because there are so many different types of USB cables on the market today, it’s hard to tell which one works with Android Auto.
Android Auto may not work with the cable that came with your phone. You should be careful.
Smartphones with USB-C cords can connect to a car’s USB-C port, so most new phones have them.
Using this tool, you should be able to figure out if you need to buy a new one.
If you don’t have the app yet, you might be able to get it with the Android Auto 7.5.121104 update.
Settings > Connection Help > USB Start Diagnostic is where you’ll find it if you have the ability. The diagnostic tool may not show up right away because Google often releases new things in stages.
