Android is notoriously bad for connecting - usually it is a combination of Head Unit software and Android Operating system and version. I know there were huge issues with Android 10 that caused loads of people to lose connection after the update.

If this is your case, raise an issue with either your phone company or the App developers.

The only way is to try it - I use Apple devices personally, so use CarPlay. All I can tell you is there were issues after that update - but may depend on the phone.

There won't be an update for Android Auto on older Head Units including the DS5 unfortunately. They will never support it. You'll need a much newer vehicle for that. :(
