So unless I'm mistaken it looks like Marshmallow 6.0+ for android is making my civic not recognize Android Auto anymore. Worked just fine before I upgraded on my Galaxy S6 edge.

If you get the chance to upgrade your phone I would defer it until there is a fix. Sucks as I used it daily but oh well.

Anyone know of a fix yet besides reverting back the android version? Thanks

I have a Nexus 5X with 6.0 Marshmallow and no problems using Android Auto. Maybe try clearing the app data for Android Auto in your phone?

Yet, same here. I just spent an hour and a half resetting everything on the phone and the car's infotainment system, including a factory reset, twice. Nothing works. The Infotainment unit doesn't even recognise Android Auto on my phone anymore since I upgraded my Galaxy S6. It was working perfectly before the upgrade.

If it's a andriod system problem, there's not much we can do but wait it out and there doesn't even seem to be an option to send them a complaint about it...

Can you go back a firmware build and see if that works? It might even be helpful to look up what issues might already be common with the build of firmware you upgraded to on your phone.

I got Android Auto working finally! Here's what worked for me:

1. Go to the settings menu on your Galaxy S6.
2. Scroll down to the "System section and tap "About Device."
3. Now scroll down to "Build number."
4. Tap the "Build number" section seven times. (You'll see a warning that you're about to unlock developer options.)
5. Now back out to the main settings menu, and you'll see "Developer options" listed.

Tap on Developer Options and scroll down to USB configurations (about half way down) and change the setting from charging to MIDI.

I am a pretty geeky guy (and work at a Honda dealership), did the developer thing, but it will not stay on midi, it keeps reverting back to charging.

I have a 2016 Honda Civic EXL.

Also, (and this the pisser), it eliminates my ability for my Bluetooth to work with my Galaxy S7 Edge. So far I have had to do a reset on the infotainment system to resync my Bluetooth


Edit:: changing the usb configurations does in fact work. it does revert back to "charging" so it will involve making this change every time you want to use the android auto

I had this problem with my galaxy S6 and the new 6.0 update, where it would charge the phone but no android auto.

I found that if you switch it in the drop down screen for charging options to MTP (should be like 5 options) android auto starts right away.

Samsung S6 issues fixed.

I found a new software upgrade on my Samsung S6 last night, installed it and it seems to have fixed the Android Auto issues with the last Marshmallow upgrade.

The upgrade doesn't announce itself, you have to go into settings and check for the upgrade.

Plugged her into my Touring this morning and Android Auto popped up just like it was supposed to.

:)

Glad it got fixed, that's one thing I always make sure to do, which is update devices. but I think at times it can do the opposite. I recall with some older systems that using the latest Apple iOS didn't go over so well.

With a new vehicle it's probably better to keep updating but with older car models, their system may not be able to get the newest update to make it compatible with the newest Android or ios system.
