DEH-X65BT w/Sam. Galaxy S3 Absolutely USELESS! No updates in a ridiculously long time... Pioneer has failed to both keep up with new device(s), and firmware updates. Some users have been lucky enough to have the app work for them, but most have been using either older Pioneer head units, older phone models, or a combination of both. Luckily it still does charge the S3 via USB (w/o the app) and I can stream the media via bluetooth. Also, software conflicts when app is installed.
A long way to go The only time this works is after a phone restart and hitting the pandora app on the head unit. Avh x3500. Widget fails to load. Auto connect on the app doesn't stay. So you have to re-enable auto connect every time the app is opened. A fairly useless app. Disappointed in Pioneer's commitment to Android devices. Samsung Galaxy S3.
Crap ware from Pioneer? YES Installed, opened, forced closed. Undaunted I pressed on and finally figured out how it works. I have to be in the USB utility screen first, tap connect to PC, plug in cable, tap home, tap pioneer connect app, tap on, then the blue connect signs comes on. Thats TOO MANY TAPS for an app that supposed to help me and it still forced closed randomly. Pioneer, do you know what QC means? DEH-X8500BH and S Galaxy 2S.
Terrible Have to turn auto on every time I open app. Doesn't even pair my phone via bluetooth or Pandora. Useless. Good job pioneer.
Very frustrating, Pioneer is not ready to support Android phones. Bought a Pioneer in dash receiver (DEH-X5600HD), says it works with Android phones to play Pandora via USB connection. It does not work. Tried this app since the description says: "your compatible Android device can be directly connected to any Pioneer in-dash car audio product equipped with a USB port". Called Pioneer, they say you do NOT need this app to make the phone work. I can tell you it did not make my phone work. Still does not work. Pioneer is not ready to run Android phones. The radio connects fine with my old iPhone. Pioneer Customer Service: useless. He told me to try buying a bluetooth connected radio, it will probably work.
Black As much as I love looking at a black screen, I don't need this app to provide one for me. Whenever something did pop up, it always said "not connected", when I definitely was.
USB audio recording and playback finally possible on Android 3.1 or higher!
