Here is the situation with "upgrade" issue with the Pandora App and not being able to connect the vehicle. 1. In Android 12 Google released a new permission called nearby device permission. 2. Pandora upgraded the Android app to be compliant with this new device permission. If you are running Android 11 the App will no longer connect to the Vehicle system. If you are running Android 12 the Nearby device permission on the Pandora App is set to off. So if you are running Android 12 go to Settings -> Apps -> Pandora and select Nearby devices If you are running Android 11 like I was, you need to upgrade to Android 12 and turn on the setting for the Pandora app select Near by devices. This fixed the issue for me. I am quite surprised that Pandora did not determine what the issue is.
