    Default Re: New c453 budget of £16,000

    Iíve been trying to get Android Auto and google maps working as it was just showing a blank map.

    So Iíve started the engine a number of times and just plugged my Samsung Galaxy S5 mini into the cars USB socket without loading anything on the phone and in fact booted the phone from a powered off state.

    When switched on and plugged into the head unit it asked if I wanted to run screen mirroring after saying yes about 10 seconds or so later it displayed the map data from the phone.

    I checked the phone and nothing was showing in the recently used apps list like it would if I had loaded android auto and google maps on the phone itself prior to connecting to the car.

    Iíve switched the engine on twice and connected the phone without starting android auto or the maps and both times it loaded the map data several seconds after agreeing to go into screen mirroring mode.

    Whilst in the car with the engine started I powered the phone off and on a number of times and every time it loaded the map data several seconds after agreeing to go into screen mirroring mode without loading any apps prior to this.

    So the only thing I can think of is the latest google maps app Iíve installed has fixed the problem or I wasnít doing something right.

    So hopefully that's it touchwood.
    Well it turns out the above wasnít the fix, I find that the Pulsar music app pauses twice before it plays non stop. Iíd love a fix but touching the play button twice shortly after each other on the cars screen gets it going again.
