Android Auto gets a new diagnostic tool to help combat bad USB cables


Google’s latest update to the Android Auto app (version 7.5.121104) brings a new USB boot diagnostic tool that tells users if their jumper cable is faulty. The new tool automatically checks whether data transfers between connected phones and the car’s infotainment are working properly and will send a message if it detects any problems.

Google’s support page also recommends using the USB cable that came with your phone. Google also suggests that these cables should ideally be less than 1m long and comply with the USB-IF standard. You should also avoid using USB hubs, cable adapters, or extenders. You can check the functionality by accessing the connection help menu of the Android Auto app. The new diagnostics feature will follow a phased implementation schedule.
