Any pointers connecting G4 to Android Auto in 2016 Silverado? G4 will do everything via Bluetooth - plays music, makes calls, send texts, Google Voice works - but no screen display. Message says connect to USB with compatible device. Tried different cables; Phone on/Phone off; truck on/ truck off. No success.

iPhone 6s connects easily with Apple Car Play - 1st time, everytime.

    Good day ssontheriver,

    I'm sorry you are having issues with connecting your G4's Bluetooth.

    Just to make sure I understand the situation, you are able to connect the phone to the car stereo, everything works fine, but the screen of the phone is dark and there is a message "connect to usb with compatible device"?
    What software version does your phone have?
    You mentioned that even with the car turned off, the screen will display blank, when the phone disconnects, does the screen return?
    Do you see any icons in the notification bar? 
    Is the car stereo trying to download any information?
    Out of curiosity, are you able to pair the phone to a different car? does the same issue happen?

    I would recommend un pair the phone, restart the phone, then try to pair again.
    Drag the notification bar down to see if there is any further request.
    check your phone is on the latest software.
