Has anyone recently had issues with AndroidAuto not connected to their phone?  I've tried three different USB cables (all which charge the phone), reinstalled AA and removed all Bluetooth connections and reconnected the phone.  I suspect AA recently updated and now we are waiting on GM to update the infotainment system. When I touch AA on the screen it says, please connect a phone with AA app installed.  2019 Silverado RST with 8 inch infotainment, connecting a Samsung S8 with AA version 4.4.592344.  Yes, it had been working before, and one of the cables I tried was the one it previously functioned on.

I've got an S9 and no issues. Was a smidge flaky on map display with waze but worked overall

That has happened to me about 3 times with my S8. Restarting the phone worked 2 of the times. The other time, it fixed itself after the truck was off for a while which restarted the radio.

Pixel 2 on Android 9. No issues in 3 months. Works every time on LT trail boss. I have noticed AA seems much happier if you let the truck screens finish loading after staring before you plug in your phone. I usually give it 30 seconds or so.

Pixel 3XL and 19LTZ here. Use AA 100% of the time. Have had the truck since March and got 4k miles. Have not had any of those issues OP.

Remove the app from your phone, and then re-down load it from the app store. That often takes care of connection issues.

 

Second, make sure all the cables you are using are data capable cables, just not charge cables. Charge cables only allow a charge to go to the phone and do not carry data back from the phone to the radio system. The original cord that was working may have crapped out and the other two may not be data capable. Just something to check.  (Try using the original Samsung cable that came with the phone, those are always data cables).

 

As mentioned, make sure to let your radio finish booting up before plugging the phone into it.
