Its been a two weeks since I updated my Android Auto app for my Samsung Note S20 Ultra ( https://amzn.to/3Dgd1fI ) and Samsung S20 FE ( https://amzn.to/3AfHPvk ) smart phones and my 2018 Honda Clarity Honda Head Unit can not connect via USB to the phones for Android Auto I found a fix for it.

I have been using the same high quality USB C cable that came with the Samsung as well as a longer braided JSAUX USB C Cable ( https://amzn.to/2ZO58ji ) for over 3 years with not problems connecting my Samsung Note S20 Ultra ( https://amzn.to/3Dgd1fI ) and Samsung S20 FE ( https://amzn.to/3AfHPvk ) smart phones to.
After the latest Android Auto update, my Honda head unit connected for a less than a minute before disconnecting. I tried clearing the app cache, reinstalling the app, and rebooting the smart phone. I also rebooted the Honda Head unit. My Samsung S20 FE connected after the reboot, however my Note 20 did not.
All the settings on the phone were the same. When checking the Honda infotainment head unit settings. I noticed that both phone profiles were on the head unit, however the Samsung S20 FE was ENABLED and the Samsung Note S 20 Ultra was DISABLED. I enabled the unit and then saw the phone.
For good measure, I DELETED the Note 20 Profile to completely clear the entry and reinstalled the phone to head unit and ALWAYS Allow Android auto permissions for the Samsung Note 20.
It has been working for the past few days. The Honda head unit still drops Bluetooth connection every so often. I believe the Honda Head Unit may need a software update.
Overall, I am glad am I am able to use Android Auto again with my 2018 Honda Clarity, as i miss using the Maps and Google Assistant features. I also miss playing video games on my Honda while parking.
