Missing turn off wifi setting when using android auto 0 Recommended Answers 7 Replies 6 Upvotes

In previous versions of android auto there was a setting to automatically turn off wifi while using the app. This is an important setting as my phone will connect to wifi hotspots which do not provide good internet and cause the app to not properly update while driving.  

The workaround is to manually disable and enable my wifi. Problem is remembering to do this each time I drive.

Same problem - Android 10, version of AA is 4.9.594934-release

My workaround is manually shutting it off when I drive. :(

Looks like it was removed from Android 10. I noticed it disappear after I updated my OnePlus 7 Pro.

Odd.  My problem is the opposite.  When Android Auto loads in my car connected USB, it automatically disables the phone wifi.  Android 10.   But i want to use my GM LTE hotspot for AA and not cellular data.   I have to enable phone wifi everytime I get in the car.  Annoying!

On Android 10 the option is not there but there is no need for it. As of Android 9, you can keep using your mobile data when WiFi is week or it has no data at all. 
 
Simply go to settings - WiFi - WiFi preferences, and enable the option called automatically switch to mobile data.
 
I'm not sure what is the reason behind the removal of the option is but I think its something related to the fact that now you can enable wireless AA on any phone, which well is absolutely contradicting with disabling WiFi.

My workaround is to use an app that turns off my wifi when my phone connects to my cars Bluetooth. Then it enables when my phone disconnects.

I also have the reverse problem but WiFi is turned off automatically when I go into AA mode but I want it to use my hotspot. What's even more infuriating is that this only happens with my Pixel 2 but not my pixel 4 XL. Google needs to hire some competent developers...
