When I first set up Carifi, I had lots of connection issues. I discovered that in addition to AA, my phone was starting Android Assistant in Driving Mode. Disabled that, and all was well.
Thanks for sharing such information. Can you share your phone model and OS version?
I’m using a Samsung Note9, Android version 10. The car is a 2020 Mazda6, s/w version 74.00.311.
Great tip. I have a new Kenwood DMX4707s and was struggling. This may have fixed it.
