Sounds like an electrical fault although the mib2 standard has had a firmware issue with Android Auto some people upgrading the firmware themselves. Difficult to really know. The length of the power cable can be an issue that connect that way since its a databus like you can't have a USB3 cable for home back up longer than 1 metre - it won't work. Over 1 metre and I found Android Auto failed to connect / disconnected. Back to 1 metre fine, that was a mib2 high.

I think the whizzie iPhone connection without the power cable is only on the top of the range Mib3s (ZN2 build code) which aren't being fitted to the Seat UK cars at the minute... iPhone app connect wireless is what it's called. My research put that outside of what is currently being fitted. ZN1.
