Hi All,
I'm having an issue with android auto (Samsung Galaxy S10) and answering incoming calls with it. If android auto is connected when I answer the phone the person on the other end can't hear me. I hear them fine. As soon as I unplug the USB connection the person on the other end can here me. If I make a call with android auto everything works fine.

Anybody experience this or have advice.?

Thanks,
Bruce

I did. I googled it, and I believe solution was to delete the truck from the phones bluetooth, and remove the phone from the truck's connected devices, then reboot the phone.. Not. 100% sure that was it, but it works now..

So, this is going to sound crazy, but I have a Samsung Galaxy S10+ and I had this issue too. I would have to call people back. I changed the Android Auto ringtone setting to use the phone ringtone instead of Android Auto's ringtone and it fixed my issue. I am trying to find the link on how to do this. As soon as I find it, I will post it.

I am working right now, so can't go out and test this again. I just know that I had to change it to use the phone ringtone and it fixed my issue. It was a while back, so I don't remember if that "Settings" is in the Sync System or in Android Auto when its connected to the Sync System. I'm sorry if that's vague. Best of luck!

Do this ^.
It is a known bug and this is the work around. I've always had mine set to use the phone's ringtone and never experienced this issue.

And, if I would've been more coherent when I posted at 3 in the morning, I would have seen that the link was already posted. My bad.
Lol no worries
