Android Auto pixelated


I've searched for this but none of the existing threads seem to cover this specific issue, apologies if I've missed something.

I have Android Auto and have been using it for months without issue. I have now got a Mitsubishi Outlander which supports Android Auto.

On the head unit the map screen is pixelated (sometimes very pixelated), I know the issue is not the screen as the other screens look perfect.

Has anybody else experienced this, and if so how do you fix it?

  • Error message: none, see above

  • Car / head unit make & model: Mitsubishi Outlander Phev Juro 2017

  • Phone make & model: Oneplus 5

  • Android OS version (Settings > (System) > About phone): 7.1.1

  • Android Auto app version (Settings > Apps (or Apps & notifications > App info) > Android Auto): 2.6.573464-release

  • Google Play services version (Settings > Apps (or Apps & notifications > App info) > Google Play services): 11.7.30 (448-168248668)

This looks like a h264 encoding/decoding error it can be on any of the sites (either phone, either car) as a quick fix try one of the followings:
1) Switch to another view (home) and back to map
2) Try opening another app/screen on your infotainment system, then return to AA

Hi Emil
Thanks for replying. Switching to another screen and back again does fix the issue until the next bit of map loads in.
Any ideas for a more permanent fix?

I've had this problem since day 1 on my 2017 Honda Accord Touring.
Tried many phones and it happens with all of them.

I also have 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander and I am also facing the same issue. Before Android auto I was using Apple Car play with no problems so I think this is something to do with Android Auto. I tried changing the Display settings of the Car but it is not helping.
My 2017 Honda Accord EX had this problem since June with the Nexus 6P. Android auto developer does not seems to care of fixing it. The pixelation is so bad that I can't even see the map. I have given up on AA.
