    I cant for the life of me figure out why android auto no longer displays street names and turns on the gauge cluster like it used to.
    IIRC, I was dorking around with the built in Nav, then around that time it stopped pushing directions to the gauge cluster. Anyone ever experience this, or found a way to undo this?

    I heard from an owner on a different forum that a recent update to Android Auto broke that feature. Not sure if this is a temporary bug or something permanent. I haven't found any other reports of this online and haven't had a chance to test it out myself recently.

    This feature no longer works for either me or my wife. We have Galaxy S9's.

    Couldn't get it to work on my galaxy S7 after the update either, it's annoying. I had hoped that finding the car's menu option for enabling turn by turn would fix it, but after finding it (it is under the meter options for some reason) it's no use, gauge just says "waiting for smart phone". Hopefully they address it in the next update.

    Good to know I'm not alone. So it definitely wasnt the Android Auto app, since I took home the car on the day AA last updated.
    Must be a GMaps bug from the 19th update. I notice street names will show up on the dash, only while using nav, but turn notifications arent getting pushed to the cluster. Fingers crossed they resolve it soon.

    It's probably best if you report this issue to Google so they are aware something is wrong.

    I did just that. If others wish to jump in(help expedite the process), launch maps > tap stack next to search> scroll down to send feedback.
    99% sure it's the maps app

    I'm considering the purchase of a Clarity so I will definitely do this if I get one. Do you know if this feature (turn directions on cluster) is available for the base trim? I'd like to think it is since it's an Android Auto feature but just want to make sure.

    Totally agree since the Waze still displays turns on the gauge cluster

    Yes, it is available on Base trim

    Mine was also fine on my long trip, but I foolishly updated and now it is not displaying on the gauge cluster any more (Galaxy S7 edge). Sent a complaint to Google using "Feedback".

    I am trying to decide whether to roll back Google Maps to previous version. Does any one know the version number of the last good version?

    Waze does not work for me around mid Nov time frame if I plugged in the USB cable. It starts on my phone and then the screen goes back to home screen

    I really wish the Clarity supported turn-by-turn via Apple CarPlay apps:
    Mapping received an overhaul for iOS 10 that is carried over to CarPlay. If your car supports it, Apple has added the ability to display turn-by-turn directions in the center instrument cluster on your car so you can follow directions without turning your head.

    Have you tried another map app? General consensus indicates GMaps is broken on the latest update, but used to show turn-turn, with a distance-to marker on the cluster. I'm using android, but cant imagine ACP is any different in that regard

    Yep no love for instrument cluster on Apple Maps, Waze or Google Maps :(
    It does work fine on Android Auto (when Waze isn't crashing)

    Maybe I'm in the minority but I love that it doesn't show the directions on my dashboard anymore. I use Android auto all the time and was so annoyed when those pesky arrows showed up

    I believe there is a setting to enable/disable that behavior

    Oh... Maybe I just disabled it then... :)

    It's weird, I have directions in both Waze and Google maps, I think it's an add-on installed by Android Auto when paired with the Clarity at initial setup. I found it rather annoying and found no way of disabling it when map app is running in Android Auto, as it constantly popping up in my instrument panel when i just want to stare at the EV range gauge.
