Hello,
First post here.
Just got a MME GT last week. Very happy with it so far except for a few things. I cannot connect to Android Auto wirelessly and when I am connected via USB AA frequently drops its connection and I need to re-connect or unplug ang re plug my phone. The regular Bluetooth connectivity works fine. Any thoughts? Build date is 7-21. thanks in advance for any advice.

I hate to even say this because it you use AA you've heard this excuse a million times - but - try a new cable?

You might also clear the cache and data for AA and the google app on your phone. You can even go so far as to delete the data and cache, and then uninstall AA, delete the MME from your bluetooth, delete the phone from the memory in the cars bluetooth system, and reboot both the phone and the car. Then reinstall AA fresh. Pair the phone again fresh, and see if its better.

If that doesn't work you can repeat all of the above but do a factory reset on the Ford Sync system completely before rebooting the car.

To be clear - I'm still waiting for my MME but I had similar issues in out Chevy Volt recently and doing a full reset of the infotainment system, re-pairing the phone in bluetooth and a fresh install of AA fixed whatever was wrong in the Chevy.

Thanks, the issue was resolved. Between having the software updated at the dealer and getting a newer Pixel phone everything seems to be fine now. Wish more apps were compatible with AA... Very limited choice with YT Music as well. I find myself just using Bluetooth mostly now anyway.

Hi, I realize that this thread is a bit dated but I thought I would jump in anyway. The four Apps that I use routinely with Android Auto are:
Pandora
Amazon Prime music
Waze
Whatsapp.

These all work great! I have Waze and Pandora on most of the time with Waze as my default screen while I drive.

Cheers
Mike

How have you gotten Whatsapp to work with AA? Are you using bluetooth or a cable? My wife's phone will not play anything over the MME Audio when connected to AA in the car. The radio is on XM Satelite, listening to music or running google maps for navigation. There is no way (that we found) to switch the audio input to bluetooth media. Help?!!

I use Android Auto wirelessly. Is your XM Satellite operating as an AA app, or is it running from the MME's entertainment system? I believe you need to either use AA or MME audio, I dont think they can both work concurrently. If this is true you may be able to use the AA XM app and operate 100% within AA. I haven't tested this theory, but it seems reasonable.

I really hope I can still use the default functions of the car itself while using AA. I really love the default navigation and always up to date traffic alerts, saved me loads of time already. Spotify seem to work better through AA though instead of regular bluetooth (keeps showing the first song I play, next song buttons not always working, and AA has a much better UI), the ability to combine them would be great. Anyone knows btw how hard/easy it is to get an own application on the car or in the catalogues (if i can get it pretty enough)? Even if they would only work while not driving I might be able to think of some useful stuff, especially some stuff to kill the time while charging.

I was in my garage last night for a couple hours trying to go through all of the settings on the MME screen and learn how it all works. The one thing I had issues with was the Android Auto which couldn't connect via Bluetooth with my phone sitting in my lap a foot away from the MME screen. I then plugged in my phone charging cable to the USB port underneath and even it disconnected after awhile.

Eventually it stayed connected long enough for something different to display on the MME screen and I could see all of my emails, texts and apps from my phone on the MME screen.

I got the WiFi password changed and got the Vehicle Hotspot connected but I noticed that I could not get the Wireless App Projection password changed either.
Also, I could not figure out how to create a MyKey either. Somehow after pressing Create MyKey Key I could never see what to do next.
It asked me to place my keyfob in the backup slot under the MME screen which I did but nothing happened. Maybe I didn't wait long enough but I thought I would be able to associate the seat and mirror settings for the 2 keyfobs that my wife and I will use. I'll try some more tonight.
