CMT-X5CDB and Nexus 5, functions well but lack of ability to scrub through tracks from USB stick is a fatal flaw. Long tracks, audio books, podcasts ALWAYS start from the beginning, making that function essentially unusable. Forced landscape is poor design too, no need. Cannot switch to BT Audio from app. Lots wrong, needs improvement.
Sync problem when casting from play music Dont seem to be updating the firmware to keep pace with cast app or play music such that does not sync when playing from play music. Result us tracks restarting after 10 secs as app and speaker get out of sync?. Used to be very stable? And why do we need a separate app why can't it work using Google cast app rather than having to create groups using this app?
For SRS-X77 - Very unstable, almost useless Not sure what Sony is doing but this is a very low quality app for a very high quality hardware. It hangs a lot, crashes, stops playing randomly for no reason, it just ian't up to the task. Can Sony finally hire some real developers to make ot work please? We've seen several iterations of this app and it doesn't get better, quite the opposite.
Landscape only? Is it really that dificult to make this app work in portrait mode? Maybe a quick access widget is a good idea too, bacause (like thousands of other users) i use my phone in the car for navigation, mostly.
Keeps stalling The app is reasonably well put together, but it keeps stalling at the end of a track. Instead of passing to the next track it seems to hang and then after a while becomes disconnected from the Sony SRS-X77.
Well, I like the Sony ecosystems. I think, the icon for this app should be overhauled. The black, square background looks a bit outdated. I have an Xperia Z4 and a Sony car radio for which I installed this software. I think the software is not well laid out. The horizontal view is difficult to maneuver, I can not hide options I will most likely never need (e.g. the icon for CD, Aux, and Tuner in the App menu... I will most likely never use a single one of those but have to scroll through them on the radio to switch apps if I don't want to pick up my phone), The icons are large and poorly integrated into the menu. Esp. considering that I have a Sony phone, the fact that half the icon is on the screen and the bottom half vanished is just strange. It makes it really difficult to select anything. And, a vertical layout would help when notifications pop up the screen becomes useless. Also, when I select Voice Recognition between the app and the car radio... I call places when I voice dial i did not know existed, so more manuals/information would be fantastic. Just doesn't feel like a product Sony cares much about but the basic idea is great. I love that i can shift speakers focus.
The song playing in each speaker / group can be checked on a same screen.
