Hi,
when I try to connect my phone via usb c cable, it does not connect to the car.
I have set default USB configuration to File Transfer but when plug in the usb c cable,
I see that the phone tries to connect but connection is not established. MI 11 and MI 9
have no problems. I have installed latest stable V13.0.32.0.
Anyone else with this problem? I don't think it's my car (Seat Alhambra 2017) as it
works with older Xiaomi phones.

Thanks for replies

Hello,
Same for me, it doesn't work.
I installed the latest stable version MIUI 13.0.36.0 SLCCNXM.
I tried with the original cable and several other cables it does not work.
However, these same cables with a xiaomi 11 under xiaomi.eu work very well.

Exact same issue here. When I connect my Xiaomi 12 to the head unit it only charges, no dialog to change the USB connection type is shown. It's as if I were connecting to a wall charger. AA works with other devices, and Xiaomi 12 works normally when connected to PC.
Did you report the bug? Is there a public link so I can subscribe to it?

Edit: I've also tried with many cables. Other devices don't work with Xiaomi 12's stock cable

I had this issue as well.
this is what I did to solve it - (On Skoda Otavia 2021 model)
1. delete Bluetooth connection from Phone - Forget the pairing from car.
2. Delete pairing from Car.
3. Update Android Auto to latest version (Also available from APKMirror).
4. Clear all connection from Android Auto, or clear data from it.
5. Restart Phone.
6. Connect Phone to Car using USB - make sure it is "File transfer/Android Auto)
7. Pair Bluetooth

For me it solved the problem - no matter what cable I use (Even the magnetic ones, with Data)
