Android Auto launching apps errors ?


Aug 27, 2022
OK so am running EU Rom on Chinese 11 Ultra (v13.0.12.0SKACNXM) , Android Auto seems to work fine for Google Maps, however for both YouTube Music and Google Podcasts if I try to launch them in Android Auto I get errors 'YoutTube Music doens't seem to be working at the moment' and 'Something went wrong' respectively.
If either or both apps are already running in background prior to Android Auto connection all seems to work fine, but seems Android Auto cannot launch the apps. I have looked but cannot find any permissions to change for Android Auto (because it is a system app ?) - any ideas or guidance on how I can correct this please ?
