    I have a 2020 and when playing music through Android Auto (plugged in) it often stutters for a brief moment (The music stops briefly and resumes). I have a Samsung galaxy s10 with all most recent updates. This happens very frequently. Any one else with that issue? Fixes?

    My 2020 does this too, I have a Pixel 3. I've only noticed it using Spotify. What music source does it happen to you on?

    Happens to me on my 20 with spotify when using android auto. Doesn't seem to have an issue when using bluetooth. I know Android has been having android auto issues all year. For reference I am using an s20+ with the non premium sound in my 2020 off road. Pandora seems to not skip regardless of android auto or bluetooth. I think google just needs to get their a** in gear and fix their ongoing android auto issues.

    Now that you mention it, I do not have any problem when playing my music via Bluetooth. The problem only occurs when I am playing music via Android Auto. Hopefully Google will find a fix for it soon.

    Also have the same issue.

    Have seen possibly two different solutions but still need to test them out.

    1. Turn off the phones Bluetooth when connected to Android auto.
    2. Upgrade the cable to a USB 3.0 or 3.1 connection.

    I have been using these cables which state they are USB 3.0/3.1. I will definitely try to turn off bluetooth while connected to Android Auto to see if it makes a difference. Thanks for the suggestions! :cheers:
