When using Tomtom Navigation Go in Android Auto there is no option in the main menu to select "My Routes".
I have to take my phone go into My Routes and select the route. The the route is selected in Android Auto and can start riding.
I think there is no way to add My Routes in Android Auto.

    Hi @BertAT

    Correct, the 'My Routes' option is not available on Android Auto. The Android Auto template allows limited space to 6 items in the menus so I doubt it'll ever get added.

    Best, lampard

    I think that is not an Android Auto imposed limit. Other apps show longer menus like the Google Settings in Android Auto or an app like Musicolet where I can chose out of thousends of numbers or Albums to play.

    And if it is a limit, why can't you configure what you want?
    As a retiree Driving to Work is a option I never going to use.
    And I use Android Auto on my motorcycle, so looking for a parking is also an oprion I will never need.

    Hi @BertAT , it is limitation from AA car app library that we use, check: https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/179648622

    What about the suggestion to solve the issue by making the 6 items configurable?

    This is great suggestion actually, I will report it for us to consider it as a future app improvement.
    Thank you.

    Thanks for the consideration.
    It can be done easily, you know that you can move around the menu items in the normal TomTom Go Navigation app, not using Android Auto.
    You could display the first 6 configured items in Android Auto.
    That way you do not have think about a way to configure it, just describe that the first 6 items will be shown in Android Auto.
    (And of course program that you do not display 6 fixed items, but the first 6 configured items.)

    To me this is a "must have" to be considered as a serious navigation app offering. With so many vehicles going the android auto and apple car play route this will only become more important to have.
