tl;dr I cannot use saved destinations when using Google Maps through Android Auto, because I always see a message that I must login to Google Maps first. I am logged into my Google account in both system and every other Google-like apps. Only with Google Maps there seems to be a problem. Is there any fix for that?
I was more than sure that when I have an Android phone, not rooted etc., where I am logged in (system wide) to an active Google account then I am also logged in to that account in any Google-related app, including Gmail, Calendar, Contacts etc.
Yet, when I plugged my Motorola Moto E4 to my Toyota Aygo and started using Android Auto with Google Maps, this turned out to be not true.
When selecting new destination address, I can:
- Type it manually
- Pick it from Google Calendar (I am logged in there and see my account's events)
- Select one of the latest or
- Browse by a category.
But I cannot use one of the saved ones (i.e. starred), because I am always hitting the wall with message saying that I must login to Google Maps first.
Here is a screenshot (in Polish, but it does the job):
How should I proceed in this situation?
