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.
Not sure why Sony gave up on this app. Does not work with android 7. The app only shows HTML script when you open it. Is this how Sony treats it's customers? Why should I even buy any of their products if an app they create will not be updated a short time after rendering the app and the product useless. You might want to get your ship together before you lose ALL of your customers.
Needs work Need to be able to reorder apps. Access tuner presets with dedicated onscreen buttons. Need access to dial pad when making a call for 'press 1 for...' type calls. Come on Sony, this could be brilliant with a bit of thought. UPDATE: you can keep your physical keyboard by going into the Bluetooth settings and unchecking input.
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 Remote? Hey Sony, what IS the point in using App Remote for YOUR radio's, when you block it's use? You block casting my cell phones app to the screen wirelessly! I thought that was the purpose for it. Why do I need this app when I STILL have to use my phones screen instead of the HU touch screen? If I open Google maps on my HU, why the hell would I want it to open on my phone??? Sony please do not Mirrorcast me, because I would have to buy a new phone for that feature to work!!!
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.
