Exactly the same issue here too. Pixel 2 XL, Android 10, Android Auto is installed but with no app icon in app drawer and no option to open the app from app settings either.

Android Auto (A/A) is definitely NOT Plug & Play – at least not on Android 10.  My vehicle = 2019 GMC Canyon SLT with the factory installed Infotainment system.  My phone = Pixel 2 XLS.  I have not used A/A previously.
After over an hour of PD, two working USB cables, A/A refused to connect to my Infotainment system.  Tried every USB preference (File Transfer/Android Auto; USB tethering; MIDI; PTP) on my phone, but it keep defaulting back to the “No data transfer” selection despite selecting “Android Auto”.  Often got “unlock screen” but no cigar here either.  Enabled “My GMC” in connected devices – no help.  Powered down Infotainment system and phone several along with reconnecting USB cable.
Then I stumbled under Settings > Google (services & preferences) > Device Connections > Android Auto > Android Auto Settings.  Talk about burying something this important.  Under General the setting for “Try the new Android Auto” was disabled!!  Enabled it and up came all the legal mumbo jumbo and A/A was now displayed on my Infotainment system screen and working.  One should be able to access the A/A settings screen via an icon on the phone’s desktop.  I hope the road test goes better.
Android Auto’s installation (ver. 4.759) on Android 10 is a nightmare no one needs to go through.

Follow up - AA working now.  Only complaint so far is outside temp is not displayed on AA screen and the time numbers are very small and difficult to read for us old geezers.  I thought MPH was supposed to be displayed someplace?
