Hello @lampard
can we expect improvements from TT?
There is another phenomenon with the Go App, if the mobile phone is not unlocked properly there, the GPS signal will not be transmitted!

This discussion was created from comments split from: Where are the controls/buttons in Android Auto? Only the exit X is shown.

    Is this for GO or AmiGO app? What phone model (Android version) are you using?

    Hello @lampard

    sorry GO App (Samsung A41, Android 11) since I use both systems with AA, I didn't want to start a new thread.
    Do I have to adjust something or do you have to optimize something else?

    Thanks for confirming @mapfanatic! I created a separate thread for this. We have this existing issue with GPS and Android 11 where the head unit doesn't pick up the GPS signal if the app isn't opened in the foreground on the phone.

    Can you check if the GPS will be only picked up on Android Auto when the app is also running on the phone (unlocked)?

    Best, lampard

    Hello @lampard
    have tested it.
    When the app is open on the phone, gps works.
    But after decoupling the phone goes crazy, only a restart helps!

    Does it worked in a previous version?
    So I would downgrade the version
    Thank you
