Digging around I found this:
Plugin for Android Auto - Use Torque with AndroidAuto found on XDA Labs | OBD2 for AA. Has anyone ever attempted to load this? Seems like the developer is on top of it with bug fixes.
Interested in response. Would love to have my OBD display on the head unit.

Yes, I've used that for Android Auto, but it forces you to choose between the XDA "bridge" or normal Android Auto when you connect the phone (or at least it did for me at the time). After installing it, I also had buggy Pandora streaming (audio cut-outs). I uninstalled it and everything's back to normal. I just have my phone in a mount that sticks to one of the HVAC vents if I want to do the ODB stuff...it seems like a better solution.

What model phone?

I'm finding that Android Auto hasn't added an OBD program to it's lineup due to distracting the driver. They've stuck to music and maps. I suspect that they may not want to be involved in a distracted driver civil suit.

Same reason iOS doesn’t do it with CarPlay without jailbreaking
