    One of the upgrades with Android 11 is connecting Android Auto wireless to your car with a compatible head set. Well it doesn't work in my car, it keeps telling me to hook up a cable. Bljuetooth is on and connected to MyChevy. I have 2019 Chevy Traverse.

    I'm pretty sure my car doesn't support wireless either, at least it didn't work when I tried yesterday. One thing remaining to wait for is the updated Android Auto app (mine is still 5.5, they just released 5.6). And the Messages app doesn't yet support chat bubbles :( Although apparently the beta version does…

    I just checked and I also have Android Auto 5.5. Maybe 5.6 will fix the issue.

    Does your car support Wi-Fi in general? My car has Wi-Fi hotspot functionality, but I'm not sure whether the head unit is connected to that hardware or not. If it is, it's all just a question of software.

    Yes my car has WiFi support. Also I doubled checked the software in my head set and i have the latest version available through Chevrolet. I double checked setting in Android Auto and wireless is turned on.

    Since this is so new, I can't find a lot on information on it not working on my car.

    All I can get to work wireless is the basic phone functions. No matter why I try with Android Auto

    Yeah, I'm not holding my breath for it. Google says "available on some 2021 model vehicles" and mine is a 2019 model.
