Same with RCD330Plus (VW/Skoda) and Samsung Galaxy S8, upgraded to Android Pie. 
Non consistent, some times working fine (once or twice last days),  some times freezes after few minutes, most of the time freezes in a minute. 
Touch is working - i hear feedback and after some clicks on screen accidentally started a call.
When switched to a main screen, music or phone - all working fine.
Looks like USB out of sync on extensive graphics update. Need to restart headunit or phone to get it back.

Never happened with previous AA versions for nearly 2 years.

Found workaround :
In android-auto developer settings set video resolution to "up to 720" instead of default "auto" option.

4.2 freeze with Kenwood after 5 Minutes.
Downgrade to 4.1 and it works. 
Again update to 4.2 freeze. 
Now 4.1 and no problemo.
