My wife and I recently upgraded our phones to Google Pixel 5's, we can successfully link the phones to the car, but it seems that when we go to bluetooth in audio, we don't have any controls from the steering wheel, or on the main display (just says "no device connected"). Our Car is a 2016 HRV Ex

I was wondering if anyone else has seen or experienced this issue, and if anyone knows of a work around.

I just upgraded from the pixel 2xl to the 5 and noticed the same thing on my 2016! Glad I'm not crazy

I tried re-pairing, didn't help. If the November update doesn't help I'll start playing with forcing Bluetooth specs in developer options, like avrcp. Just haven't had the time to sit in the parking lot and play with it

Let me know if you figure it out!

Got it working! Enable developer options in Android, then change your Bluetooth options to this. Reboot. Took many combinations to get to this, and apparently rebooting is necessary

Annoying, but I'm guessing Honda didn't implement something in a standard way

This comes down to the issue every developer for mobile devices faces. Android has half the market, Apple the other half (for argument's sake). They can get it 100% right for Apple because they only have one operating system to test against. Not too difficult. But, for Android there are different flavors of the OS for every mobile device manufacturer. Android for Samsung is not the same as Android for another phone maker. They have TONS of work to do to get that 50% of the market. So, don't blame Honda. Blame Android.

I tried this and it still isn't working. Is it just the AVRCP and MAP versions you changed?

Nevermind. It finally worked! Thank you for your instructions!
Glad you got it working, I don't know why it took so long but mine didn't seem to apply right away either. It was either time or a reboot, sounds like one of those was the solution for you too.

My Pixel 3 phone started acting this way just this week. I've had the phone for 18 months and it worked flawlessly. Now it display's 'No Device Connected' on the Honda display which is false as it's connected and I can hear audio from the phone if I start a program (music or Stitcher) from the phone. The phone works over Bluetooth as I called out today to test this. I've tried deleting all Bluetooth devices on both the car and the phone and repairing but that does not solve the problem. There was an Android Phone update last week and perhaps that screwed up the Bluetooth software that interacts with the car display. Has anyone else had this problem in the last week or two?

Edit added: I'm on Android OS Ver 11

Edit 2: I just confirmed the above workaround over on the Pixel help forum: you need to change the AVRCP to either 1.4 or 1.3 from the default 1.5
