Hi all,

Had my car a few months now and love it.

Since the start I've used Android Auto every morning and night on my commute with my Samsung Galaxy S8 and it's worked seamlessly, displaying the turn by turn directions on the small screen in front of me.

However, a week or 2 ago, it stopped showing this and although large screen works OK, it just shows the Compass in the small screen. (which I'm sure was great for Columbus, but not ideal for negotiating unknown towns and cities in Yorkshire...)

I did a factory reset and still nothing, the small screen turn by turn does work when using the Garmin Nav, but I find the Garmin useless as the traffic doesnt work and I don't think it ever has. (ETa's are shown that are often 15 mins out over an hour journey as its not picking up traffic)

Spec from the head unit settings are:

Model Number - MY16ADA
Android Version - 4.2.2
Kernal Version - 3.1.10+
Build Number - 1.F196.47

Phone is up to date. No third party apps installed on headunit, completely stock, un-tweaked phone.

Any ideas? Considering looking if Waze works.

Thanks in advance.

Installed Waze, still no joy.

Not even a compass in the mini screen, just a blank area and interestingly, the icon on the map didn't move as I drove.

REally not sure what is wrong, may be an Android Auto update, or Google Maps update that's fudged it.

Anyone got any ideas/similar experience?

OK, so it didn't work when I uninstalled, which deletes all updates since the phone was born, mine when back to 9.something.

When I did it, the map guidance was rubbish and still no turn by turn.

However, I read this: https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/06/03/go-back-older-version-app-android/

It worked a treat, I rolled back to Google maps 10.4.1 and the turn by turn directions are back in play, I also (as the article advised) went to the Google Maps page in the Play Store and disabled auto updates.

So to anyone with an Android phone, running Google Maps through Android Auto who's turn by turn directions have gone, this will solve the problem and is really easy.

PS - I take no responsibility for any loss of data, phone, hair, money, time or patience this may cause and do it at your own risk.
