Google Maps it is undoubtedly the most popular solution for those who want help to get from point A to point B and, once at their destination, take advantage of a whole series of features, such as finding a restaurant to eat or a place to sleep , get information on things to see or activities planned nearby.
From time to time, however, even Google Maps has some problems and, according to user reports that are multiplying in the last hours, this is apparently happened with version 7.2 of the app: after updating to this release, in fact, disappeared from Android Auto.
In practice, Google Maps is still displayed on the user’s phone and can still be accessed until the car is connected to the smartphone.
New problem for Google Maps on Android Auto
At present, the team of the Mountain View giant has not yet officially recognized this problem and it is therefore unclear whether it has already set to work to find a solution.
According to what is learned from the reports, there does not seem to be a remedy at the moment and those who have tried to uninstall and reinstall the updates, restart the phone and configure Android Auto on their vehicle again have not obtained any appreciable results.
Unfortunately it is unclear whether this problem is limited to some unfortunate users or if, on the contrary, it is generalized but whoever finds it as an alternative solution on Android Auto can fall back on Waze, an application that always belongs to the Mountain View giant and that exploits the data in crowdsourcing to provide users with the fastest and safest routes to follow.
Waze for Android is available in the Google Play Store:
The hope is that the Google Maps problem on Android Auto will be fixed as soon as possible.
