    I have a Galaxy S7 Edge running Android Auto on my Pioneer AVH-4100NEX. I went on vacation and my car sat for a while and now when I'm in Android Auto mode I can't receive and send text messages. I ask Google for the weather or to do a calculation and I get nothing. However, if I ask Google to dial someone whether in my contacts for not, it dials the number. Does this make any sense? There doesn't appear to be any official Android Auto support. I contact Pioneer and they told me my contacts weren't syncing with Android Auto which was strange enough when they said it, but given the fact that I don't get a reply when I ask GoogleNow for the weather means my contacts shouldn't have anything to do with it. Any help would be appreciated.


    Thanks,
    Matt

    I have this sometimes and I usually find that Android Auto or an associated app has updated on the phone and needs some permissions renewed. It's the most annoying thing about the fact that apps no longer ask for permission when you install them but only when that permission is needed as you use the app. The worst one is when you're driving and need to make a call and find that Android Auto needs to renew its permission to access your contacts. The only way to grant an app permission is to stop the car and disconnect the phone from the head unit which isn't always easy to do if you're on the motorway.
