2019 Outback and Android Auto Charging

I found one other thread about charging and Android Auto but it didn't answer my question.

If I'm charging my Pixel 3 via a USB A to C cable the phone will not charge while streaming music and running maps on the phone.

I believe the Outbacks are still USB A so when using Android Auto in the 2018/2019 models will the phone charge while streaming music and using google maps/waze?

Thanks!

Mine charges when plugged into the USB in the front console (the one that makes it connect to Android Auto). I have a 2018 Premium.

Edit to add: And that's true whether or not I'm using Google maps from the phone to Android Auto.

I use Waze a lot, while streaming podcasts from my phone, and the phone charges fully to 100%. I get the same results when using whatever the other mapping program is -- "Maps". Maybe that's Google Maps???

I have no issues running m phone with Android Auto and it charging in my 2019 limited. I have a Galaxy s9+ which uses USBc (So USB A-C).

That's the car's NAV system. To use Google maps, it goes thru Android Auto or Carplay.

You might check your radio settings. I believe I saw a option to allow the usb port to charge or not

My car doesn't have the NAV system.

My 18 premium charges phone while running Android Auto (Type A->Type C). I do notice that phone is being charged slower when both GPS and Maps are enabled.

My car doe not charge at a high enough voltage to increase the battery when it is being used. It just maintains the status quo.

It's about the Ports amperage. As long as it's a 2 amp USB port which the 2019 is then you should be fine.


Wife has a Pixel 3 and charges fine. My S8 with USB A to C works fine as well as long as its plugged into a 2 amp port.
