What Owners Say
"Android auto is erratic. I sometimes need to connect/disconnect the phone 10 times or more before the software loads properly on screen. While driving and with Google maps or Waze running the screen will sometimes freeze up, blank out completely, start flashing (strobe-like) and sometimes the infotainment system will completely reboot itself for no reason. I have tried several USB cables (some specifically designed for data transport and not just charging the phone) with no effect. The screen freezing/acting up issues went away once I upgraded my phone from an LG G5 to an LG G6 model. However the USB connection issue persists and seems to be getting worse. When the phone is first connected the MirrorLink application tries to load and then fails. If I leave the phone connected, eventually Android auto may try to load, fail and repeat the process on its own. Sometimes MirrorLink tries to load again several times. Eventually I have to disconnect and reconnect repeatedly before the phone is recognized and Android auto loads properly. I tried two different LG G5 phones and had the exact same issues before upgrading to the G6 but it has been a frustrating experience. When the infotainment system works, it's great but this has been a major issue with this vehicle."Anonymous, ON (2016 Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
"Worked well for about 18 months, then I noticed the connection cord was heating up, and it began working intermittently. A new APPLE Branded cord did not help or fix the situation. Apple car play no longer engages/turns on. I cannot find a blown fuse, so I use the native VW bluetooth now."Beth S., FL (2016 Volkswagen Tiguan SE 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
