Hello all,

I am having a tough time googling this as android auto has a wireless option itself, which to my knowledge is not supported by my 2018 for fusion energi. 

 

I do not know much about how wireless charging works.

 

I just bought a google pixel 3, and was wondering if I put a wireless charger in my car usb port that had a little mount, if Android Auto would still work, or does it require a cable connection.

 

Thanks

Android Auto requires a cable connection in the Ford.

 

Wireless charging cannot transmit data so simply plugging a wireless pad into the USB port won't work.

 

Anyway given that the use of GPS is a serious battery drain, I wouldn't want to charge it wirelessly anyway - it would likely drain faster than it charges.

Great thanks for the reply, I had a feeling, but figured someone would be able to confirm. 

Thanks

So, you're saying that you've got to use a USB cable for Android Auto to work?

That would explain why on a rental 2019 FFH it sometimes did (I guess I plugged it in first) and sometimes not (just Bluetooth).

Correct. Sync3 is not as new as some other head units out there so it only supports AA over a USB cable. In fact, I don't think wireless AA is supported on any factory infotainment system yet - I've only seen it in aftermarket units.
