It's pretty good, when you only want to adjust your car stereos sound. I have DEH-1900UB and my phone is Nexus 5x. I use spotify premium through this app via usb c connection and the music "chops" every few seconds for some reason. So I have to use aux instead which is a shame, because I want to have charging and multimedia in the same connection in my car.
ARC App only connected once via Bluetooth in my Month+ of trying to use it on the DEH-X8800BHS. This is currently one of Pioneer's flagship models and imagine I cannot get one of its main feature to work. Poor support from Pioneer. Please update and fix this problem ASAP. Samsung Galaxy S6. If you read the comments on the Google PlayStore, you'll see how many people are disappointed, just like myself. PLEASE FIX PIONEER!!!
It's kind of irritating, because the stereo can't read the app half the time. I have to turn my car all the way off and back on and MAYBE it will work. It also will randomly start even though it's not running on your phone. I hope you all have your media volume down, because this has almost blared out in my college classes a few times. Nothing triggers it, it will just randomly start playing music without being connected to the stereo system. I hope they fix this, then maybe it will be worth everyone's time.
The app basically works, but it's not very easy to use. To control it, it shows you a few gestures and you need to remember them. And when you're playing your music to the device, every 2 seconds it skips a fraction of a second of audio. it's really annoying.
For about 2 minutes it worked and I loved it. Used it to customize my 13 band EQ and some other settings that are horrible to do business the head unit. Then it just stopped working. App is persistent on my phone and couldn't close it, yet I can't get it to connect at all now. Tried resetting, firmware update, etc.... Nothing. Needs serious bug fixes
If any of you are having trouble making the app connect.. make sure your Bluetooth is activated on your phone and put the source of the stereo on app... when you have done this all you have to do is hold down the multi control dial(volume/menu knob)for a few seconds... a warning screen will appear and prompt you to push OK and when you have this completed you will have full access to the apps functions for your device...i have the dehx6910bt
