There isn't a second USB, it may technically be possible to put a two way hub into the one in the console then USB2 on the head unit would come into play. I did try it when I first got my car but couldn't get it to work reliably.

If someone with the same phone as you tried their phone using your cable and it worked that suggests the problem is with your phone (assuming they were using your car), but I wouldn't know what it was. I assume you have downloaded Android Auto onto your phone?

It's possible that you may need the update applied to your car.
I had mine done two weeks ago and I haven't had any problems.
I have the Samsung Galaxy s6.

Hey,

I have a Samsung S6 Edge and Projection (aka Android Auto) has worked since the car was upgraded to support it.

2nd USB is probably for the flexbar phone holder option

No, the flexbar doesn't give you an input to the infotainment system, only a power source.
