0
On the phone (S21 5G), hit "get directions" google maps is not navigating automatically while the phone is connected to a car with android auto. Example: while using uber driver it used to navigate straight away after getting a place to navigate to, but not anymore since last update. This needs to be connected to android auto in orderto happen.

Hello all,
 
This forum is for individuals' issues with Google Maps. If an app is not properly communicating with Google Maps then the support for that app will need to contact Google support to coordinate a fix.

This is not a problem with Uber, or Lyft. They are just two examples of apps that transfer addresses to the Google Maps app via Android Auto. Google Home is another app that won't properly transfer the addresses. This is a problem with either Google Maps or Android Auto. I'm having the same issue with Uber, Lyft, and Google Home. The issue for these 3 apps all started on the same day. That clearly points to Google or Android Auto being the issue. I'm sure if I had other apps that transferred addresses in the same way, they would have issues as well. I hope this gets resolved soon. It's very inconvenient.
Thanks.

No matter the location of the error, support for Maps APIs is not something handled in this forum. One of those apps will need to contact API support.

It looks like sometimes when you tell people they're looking for help in the wrong forum you suggest or even move the post to the correct forum. Could you do that instead of just repeating that the Google maps help forum isn't where we should seek help for a problem with Google maps?

There is no such place in the Google Help communities. Support for those coding in Maps APIs is on Stack Overflow. You are not coding, the people that are will need to pursue the issue.

I have provided you the solution you will need to follow. Repeatedly asking for a different solution is not going to change the solution.

I got a temporarily solution.

I uninstalled google maps last update from my Samsung S21 and now it is working or use Waze instead which I don't personally like.

but obviously the problem is Google maps update. If you just let somebody else to check this issue or have a second opinion it would be much appreciated. It seems that there is some miscommunication between helper and the problem itself.

The get directions button doesn't even work when you look for a place from Google itself, it's definitely the Google maps update that has messed up Android auto working correctly for maps specifically I Uninstalled the latest update for maps and it's now working.

After installing update of Google Maps 11.11.2 released on December 14th 2021, our issue seems to be fixed! I googled a business through Chrome while plugged into Android Auto, tapped on Get Directions and it sent the directions onto Android Auto in my car. You do have to hit start on the infotainment screen but it works! 

I tried with Lyft's app (I was offline) just told it to navigate me to the airport and it worked as well... in this scenario it did automatically start the navigation. 

I was not online with uber so I could not test that out but I can only assume it will work since the other methods are working. 

When you hit start directions or start on Lyft, the phone will display a small message as it did before saying it cannot open google maps while on Android auto.... not those exact words.
