App works great until your phone upgrades to lillipop The app is great and linked perfectly to my car stereo until my phones operating system upgraded to Android Lollipop. My phone now links to the stereo but none of the stereo apps appear on my screen. An urgent update is required on the app, I gather this has been a problem for the last 2 months and no fix yet.....come on Sony sort it out!!
App glitch When the app is running on my phone it will not let me open of my text options to text or email and what not it completely blocks my keyboard out. When I turn it off it never completely exits and I have to reboot my phone to make it go away. And I am running it on a Galaxsy S4 so there should be no issue. Can someone fix this PLEASE? Other than that I love everything else about it. Options are amazing the reliability is perfect and the style and functionalities are second to none.
OK Love it when it works. It connects to my Xperia Z2 fine. But couple of snags: 1. Even when accessing google maps through the app , voice directions are not thrown over the car stereo. Interestingly, when I start using Spotify, also through the app, it seems to realise there is a car stereo, and the google maps voice directions are suddenly transmitted over the car speakers. 2. If a call comes in, while Spotify is playing through phone and app, and I take the call using the MEX car stereo functions, spotify stops "throwing" after the call ends, requiring a full phone restart to sort out.
Need to be more user friendly Especially radio operation is not easy. While we are using smartphone screen, application does not allow you to operate the device easily. You have to swipe in order to seek for radio station but instead of swiping there can be easy seek+ or seek- buttons. Also device settings should be achieved by the app. Otherwise there is no meaning to use touchscreen of smartphone. Only utilizing source management? More can be done. Application should be more user friendly.
Only Some Lollipop 5.0 Support Pros: It was updated. It has GREAT fade and balance controls. A decent equalizer. The buttons are large and easy to see. Cons: Doesn't show volume on lollipop. Can't remove unneeded apps that are built in, like SiriusXM, which I don't have. Drops music if it reads a text, and requires a full disconnection to fix. The background isn't changeable, let me use my pics. Needs general improvements to be a good app. It's barely a decent one.
Good, but to make better it needs Preset station buttons for each radio station saved. Larger radio text saying whats playing, there is loads on room on the screen not being used. Keyboard would be useful for when i pull over to enter a satnav destination. At the moment i have to disconect the app, program sat nav, reconnect app, start music again. Please trust me not a text and drive!
Improving the quality of operation
