It offers something related to dashboards from your smartphone and offers a rich selection of apps. But when something goes wrong, you may need to take your eyes off the road to fix it. Unfortunately, many Android Auto users are currently experiencing GPS disconnection issues.

The problem is still fairly recent. Hope it gets fixed soon.
