Pixel 5 always disconnects from Android Auto, had no issues with Pixel 3XL
3
My Pixel 5 essentially broke Android Auto on my 2019 Subaru Forester. I had zero issues with my Pixel 3XL; however, my Pixel 5 will only sometimes successfully connect to Android Auto, but always disconnects at some point and will not reconnect.

When looking at the USB settings on my Pixel 5 when connected via cable to the vehicle, I see that the option for data transfer/Android Auto is NOT selected. 

This was never an issue for me on my Pixel 3XL; seems to be something specific with the Pixel 5.

Exact same issue here.  I went from a perfectly working pixel 2 to a pixel 5 that disconnects every two minutes.  This is outrageous.  Kenwood DMX957XR.

The USB settings on my Pixel 5 when connected via cable to the vehicle, the option for data transfer/Android Auto is NOT selected.  And if I select the data transfer/android auto option it will not stay selected. When I initially select it android auto launches on my car display then crashes immediately after the usb setting changes.

Same issue with same troubleshooting steps plus I also disabled battery optimization on android auto from previous forums' suggestions for older models. Same results. I have had this phone for two weeks and can no longer use android auto at all.

Same issue here with Pixel 5. It connects and stays connected for half a minute or so, then disconnects. The phone itself says it is connected while the car shows continuous flipping between connected and disconnected. Android Auto is basically unusable and I have to return the device and get something else.
