android auto only works via wired and then has to be the via the USB connection in the QI charging hub. Does NOT work when connecting to the other charging ports.

You will also need to then go into options and connectivity and activate android auto for connected phone samsung xyz

I'm also finding the wired connection is very unreliable and is frequently dropping out. Are you?

My phone also doesn't fit in the charging tray with the cable connected to it.

I'm hoping a different cable solves the connection issues when I get back to the car in a few days.

I have not tried the wired connection yet. Will try during next week. I have a Samsung Galaxy S10+ and having the same problem with the charging tray when the cable is connected to the phone.

I have learned from other Toyota boards that you need to have a HIGH quality USB cord so it will stop dropping. (typically the cord that comes with the phone should be fine, but if it is old and beat up, then it won't work). Look for something that can transfer data at higher speeds.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and it works very well using wireless Android Auto with our bZ4X. I haven't tried wired Android Auto though using my Note 20 but only tried Apple CarPlay using an iPhone X (which also works wirelessly).

Wireless?! I have an S21 Ultra.

I believe the UK system only supports wired, and the manual indicates this as well. How strange.

Even wired android auto is acceptable due to various operating systems. But selecting Bluetooth every time you disconnect your android auto "cable" is an obsolete technology and very painful. One has to remember as the phone does not connected automatically to Bluetooth.

Oh, I'm in the US. I didn't realize that the question was for the UK system. :(
When I started this tread I did not had any peticular country i mind. I think it is good to know how this work all over the globe. Since you can use it wireless with your Samsung phone gives me hope that it soon will be possible here in Norway/Europe as well.

Hey @G-K, did you recently take delivery of your bZ4X? Or did you have it before the recall and had to park it?

It's an international forum 🙂.

Used a new cable coming back from Heathrow and it was still dropping out constantly. Audio over Bluetooth still sounded good and I don't mind the built-in sat nav, even with the directions being spoken by two different ladies!

I'll play around at the weekend and hope it isn't a usb port issue.

I have tried with a Samsung cable and it works fine, but I hope we soon can use the wireless solution instead of the cable. Then we can have the phone in the wireless charge tray.
