Android auto voice commands "navigate to work" drops address & "open location settings" not working 0 Recommended Answers 0 Replies 0 Upvotes

  • I am using Android Auto on my phone screen (not a head unit)
  • The issue does not occur outside of the Android Auto app
  • Phone make & model: Moto Z3 Play
  • Android OS version: 9
  • Google app version: 10.92.10.21.arm64
  • Android auto app version: 4.9.594934-release
Two issues (suspect they are unrelated):
1) What did you say to Google? (#1): "OK Google, Navigate to work"
How was it recognized by Google? (#1): It set destination to the middle of town

2) What did you say to Google? (#2): "OK Google, Open location settings"
How was it recognized by Google? (#2): It responded with "action not supported on this device"

Both commands work in Google assistant outside android auto. 
Both commands have functioned as expected inside Android Auto in the past.

Problem #1 -  work navigation,  is very recent; started happening Jan 23, 2020. It sets the destination to the town where my office is, but doesn't set the address (ie navigates to center of town.). Also, when I first began using the app it would list "Work" as a destination option on the home screen, and I could just tap it. But that is no longer true making the "Navigate to work" problem a bigger issue. The work around I use is to say "navigate to" and then give the full address instead of saying work.

Problem #2  - open location settings -  This has been a problem in Android Auto for a while.  It's significant  since Android 9 now buries this option deep in the settings menu making it too difficult to access safely while driving. Whereas with previous Android I could simply swipe down and tap off the GPS radio. The work around I use is to exit Android Auto and issue the command inside Google Assistant - requires tapping buttons on the screen, which is unsafe while driving.
