Hi,

I Have a strange issue. One of the entries in "my places" doesn't appear when using Amigo through Android Auto.

It's there on my mobile device, and on Android Auto the star is appearing on the map but (from the car) I can only find it in the recent locations.

This only happens with one specific saved location. I've tried deleting the location and adding it again but it's the same.

Any thoughts?

Hi

Normally, if I understood your question correctly, favorites displayed on Android auto are limited to 6.
 
Thanks but that's not it. I added a new favourite and that appeared in AA as expected.

Also, when using Waze and Google Maps through AA there's loads more than 6 favourites and they all show up.

It's just occurred to me that this particular location is alphabetically the last on the list. I'll try renaming it and see what happens.
 
Just to close this off, I found that Android Auto only displays the first (alphabetically) seven entries from "my places".

A way round this was to start the navigation from the app before connecting to Android Auto. Then, when you plug it into AA the place is listed in 'Recent destinations'

Thanks for this tip, also great as the you don't have to wait for the app to load once you are in the car.
But it also goes further as you can also add further stops, from search and My Places, and edit the route on the phone screen, once connected to Android Auto (assuming your are not driving!). This hybrid way of working overcomes most of my frustrations with the Go app on Android Auto.
