It's also a Mazda thing. There are two interfaces for AA, one that is laid out in a way that's optimal for touch, and another that's optimal for joystick/command knob controls. I believe that Google allows each manufacturer to decide which layout they want to use. If I remember correctly I've heard of a few other cars that have wheel style controls but that also use the touch layout and allow touch while the car is not moving.

Also to the OP. Its weird, I'm able to connect my phone at anytime regardless of if the car is moving or not, and AA will automatically fire up on my phone and soon after cast to the head unit. That message does come up when you need to do something on your phone to continue. You may want to check your Android Auto settings, because if you have it set to automatically allow the connection from the head unit you wont ever have to press anything on your phone to start Android Auto, you can just plug it in and it goes. You may have accidentally set it so you have to confirm on each connection which would prompt that screen since it requires looking at your phone.

The other thing that is weird is that when I do need to do stuff that requires a still car, I can be in drive as long as I'm holding the break. No parking break or park transmission switch required.

I'm in a 2016 6. That would really blow if they sent not just the accelerometer info to Android Auto but also the transmission and E-break status starting with the 2017s and require all 3 to be "safe".

I also got one more thing. Yesterday, I open diagnostic session. Open DTCs of my car, I saw "CMU DTC 1 - B119F92 (GPS Antenna-Performance or Incorrect Operation)". Right now, my car's navigation doesn't have location.

Maybe because of this android auto said that car is moving.

Anyone know about this??
Please help.
Thank you.

I'll be getting the Android Auto soon and I hope everything will be fine. I'll be using the "hack version" instead of the kit.

I find it weird that my friend needs to use a dedicated cable just to connect with the head unit. According to him, USB cable won't work.

ONE possible cause, the GPS antenna plug came lose as you were sliding the head unit back into place, its a small blue cable located on the left side of the unit.

I received a letter stating I can get the android auto now. So I went to mazda dealer and they said it's $395. Is it the same everywhere? I thought it would be a free update. Thanks (2017 mazda6 touring)

It's hardware and an install. The price is the same pretty much all over.
