Issues post-Android 11 update refuse to die. Here is the latest one being reported by OnePlus users. The irritating bug being highlighted is related to Android Auto performance. The bug “Android Auto slow to connect after update to Android 11” has surfaced in OnePlus devices after users installed Android 11 with OxygenOS 11. It was first spotted on OnePlus Forums.
The OnePlus Android Auto loading times have abnormally increased in comparison to its past behavior. It all started with a complaint from a user who said that he updated his OnePlus 7T with Oxygen OS 220.127.116.11.HD65AA a night before. It is frustrating when your reflexes are not ready to accept that the device in the car will take 2 more minutes to get loaded which otherwise was a fraction of a second.
Check out his dilemma below
Android 11 update appears to have messed up with the otherwise quick ‘plug and go’ system for Android Auto. It has now been pushed to more than 2 minutes of waiting. Some users have even reported that Android Auto gets disconnected from them during their commute. This is especially annoying when you are left without directions and are scrambling to connect the phone back, followed by a waiting period of another 2 minutes to get started.
The Android Auto delay issue is not restricted to the OnePlus 7 series. It is being reported by a few more OnePlus models including OnePlus 7, OnePlus 8, and OnePlus Nord. There are stray reports by OnePlus 9 Pro users as well.
The issue is not hardware-related. A few users have gone ahead and tried different cables and ensured the latest version of Android Auto (6.3.611324-release) is installed. However, the Android Auto delay bug refuses to budge. OnePlus device owners are convinced that the problem lies with the updated Android version. Since there was no such delay in Android Auto earlier, the issue appears more with the software, and OnePlus needs to fix it.

Apart from the delay, a few OnePlus 11 users are reporting the Android Auto bug of late. The app has stopped working or connecting by USB cable or Bluetooth. Users have tried to fox at their end by changing USB default to “Android Auto” and using the original cable, but it has not worked.
The good news is that the issue has been acknowledged and the issue forwarded to the concerned team.
In the meantime, we have some workarounds from the users too.
