ZenNiniI think you will find it's just android auto doing what it does and just playing up . Try to uninstall the latest update for android auto and see if that works. If it doesn't then it may be another issue,if it does work after uninstalling maybe wait for another update for android auto before updating the app again.
Now that this thread is open, I have gotten another problem. My AndroidAuto has stopped working. It will connect to the car but upon trying to use it I will only get a blackscreen.
Online I have found the issue with Samsung phones and there is was determined it was a Samsung Update issue and it was promptly fixed.
As this issuee arose with my A12 update, I am assuming this is also an Asus issue. So if there is actual developers reading, please fix Android Auto.
