Samsung Galaxy S21 disconnecting from version 3

Recommended Posts

I have a 2016 F150 with Sync 3 Version 3.0

 

I am trying to use my Samsung Galaxy S21 for Android Auto with a 6 foot cable.

 

I can connect with bluetooth and I can connect via a short data cable to the USB port and I can use Android Auto.

 

The short cable I am using is an LG cable (1FTFW1EG5GFC29298) and works well.

 

I am wanting to use a longer cable (6 feet), but every cable I try does not work.

 

The Sync 3 states that the device is not compatible.

 

I am trying to use the following:

Reversible USB Type-C  3.1

24 Pin 

Max Speed: Up to 5.0 Gbps

Oxygen Free Copper Wire

Nickel Plated Connectors

Suggested Maximum Current:  1.0A

 

When I connect this cable, it will connect and then disconnect multiple times.

 

Anybody have any suggestion on what type of a long cable I can use?

 

Thanks!

If you have tried many 'good' cables and they do not work, then I would think that there is a limit on length.

Could be. I was having the same though, but wasn't sure.

 

Thanks for the reply and info!

One way to know , is one of the phones that works fine in the other vehicle, try it with the longer cord... if it does not work, then you would know.

I have tried the same cable with the same phone in my 2018 Accord and it works fine.

Thanks for the thought!

By chance have you enabled developer options on your phone?  What is your default USB option?  Check the USB settings on your S21.

I ended up buying a 3ft cable and all is well.

 

Thanks for all the support!

So 3 foot works, but something longer does not... so yes, I think it's a limitation of sync3
