If you’ve been using the Android Auto app on your phone screen, you’ll need to switch to Google Assistant’s driving mode, a new integrated driving experience. If your car is compatible with Android Auto, you can still connect directly to your car’s display.  Learn about other ways Google is ready to make your drive better.

Android auto flashing Google maps location needs attention. I don't use location unless using maps
1
This is so annoying! There must have been an update because it never did this before. I have it plugged in. And it keeps flashing "google maps location needs attention ". Make it stop! It's very distracting when I'm driving! I only use location when I'm using maps.  And I'm not using maps! Grr make or stop. Now I'm trying to use my phone while plugged in and this flashing notification is taking places of buttons i need to push.

Same problem here. This has been a recurring problem since I changed cars in June 2021. When connected to Android Auto in my car, this notification keeps showing up on my phone if the GPS is not activated on the phone (LG Velvet). I never had that problem with my previous car.

Any update? Very annoying. Is Google trying to FORCE location to be on?
