Why does Android Auto disconnect my Bluetooth? Grrr…

Just got a new 2021 Mazda 3 hatch (love it!) with Android Auto, cable connected.
I have my phone (Samsung A52) connected by Bluetooth for phone calls and audio from my phone. 95% of the time, that’s what I use but sometimes I connect by cable to Android Auto so I can use Google Maps.
Whenever I do that, and then disconnect later, I’ve lost my Bluetooth pairing. The car doesn’t see my phone anymore. It asks if I want to pair a device, and it says that is is going to disconnect Paul’s A52.
What’s this about and how can I fix it? It’s a real pain to have to keep pairing my phone!
