Harman to offer dashboard controls using Android Open Accessory Protocol


Tuesday 12th of July 2011 / talkandroid.com
Back in May, Google announced the Android Open Accessory Protocol which allows external USB hardware to interact with an Android-powered device in a special “accessory” mode.//Harman announced today that they will be the first major technology partner in the automotive industry to support this protocol. Harman manufactures and markets audio under brands like Harman Kardon, Infinity, JBL, and Mark Levinson.With the Open Accessory Protocol, users will be able to seamlessly control Android smartphone or tablet content through the car’s dashboard or steering wheel controls. Drivers will be able to safely activate music apps, such as Harman’s Aha Radio service. Popular apps that provide information on nearby restaurants, gas stations and tourist spots will have the ability to overlay on to the existing navigation software. Drivers can also stream content to other devices like rear seat entertainment units.“Consumers no longer view their living room, workplace, and personal devices as separate domains,” said Harman chief executive Dinesh Paliwal. “Connectivity

Here is the video, demonstrating steering wheel controls on my Nissan.You need to look at the electric circuit diagram of your car and find the type of steering wheel control and wire layout.If it uses CAN Bus steering wheel controls, i don`t know if your 777 will work. Propably it won`t.If it has a resistive keys - 777 will work. You need to connect GND to GND wire of the steering wheel keys, Steering wheel control has 1 or 2 outputs depending on car model. Connect Ad1 and Ad2 to the outputs. That is all. Now it should work. However, it may recognize not all the keys because they give similar measuring results. In this case you need to add extra 500 Ohm resist

Jelly Bean Issues with Bluetooth, Phonebook & Call History in 2010-2013 GM Vehicles


Wednesday 17th of April 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
This is for people who have an Android device that was recently upgraded to Jelly Bean. My car was at the GM dealership for over a week determining what the issue was. I have an open case with GM Infotainment, and also one with Motorola 3rd Tier support. Symptoms: Phone pairs with vehicle, but no phonebook/contacts or call history is pulled from the phone even after a PbapRequest, new from Jelly Bean from the car. This does not include the 2013 GM Vehicles with MyLink as it works fine on those as they have the newest and greatest OnStar modules and of course MyLink. Another issue is when making a Bluetooth call using the steering wheel controls results in calls not being made, but if call is initiated from the cell phone Bluetooth then works and you can use hands free. If you are able to use steering wheel controls, Voice commands, and dial any number on the Verizon network you might get a double ring, and feedback where you can

Looking for advice on Bluetooth Steering Wheel Remote


Saturday 04th of August 2012 / droidforums.net
Hi all,I use my Razr Maxx in the car dock quite often but its a bit of a reach to tap the screen controls especially when listening to music. I'm wondering if anyone has info on a steering wheel mounted remote that I can use to control the music while my Maxx is in the dock. I've found a few for the iPhone but could not find any inf of they would work on an android phone. Looks like Maxell and Parrot have some but before I spend a lot of money to find out it doesn't work, I though I'd solicit some expert opinions and advice here.Thanks,David

The One 'Do I Buy This', 'What Do I Buy', 'I'm Looking For' Thread - Page 56


Wednesday 06th of April 2011 / androidtablets.net
Thought I'd get some more responses, but I did my own research (how about that?). Found some alternatives:Huwai Ideos S7Viewsonic View Pad 7Flytouch 2 8in with GPS (may need to connect antenna externally?)Any feedback about these three?The Huwai & Flytouch has a resistive screen which I'm not so cool about, I have that on my current Pioneer Avic Head Unit (also had an HTC windows mobile phone back in the day) and I find the response is pretty terrible, I'm kind of used to capacitive screens ever since I've had my iphone. BTW 3G is optional, I will tether from my iphone (I'm worried that the galaxy tab/other tabs cannot connect via ad-hoc). Feedback on this?As far as how I plan to hook it up... right now I'm not doing a full integration. New cars today have such custom stereos that its hard to get everything right (keeping steering wheel controls, climate controls, external information etc). I have a 2006 Mazda3 and plan on adding a bluetooth module (Grom Audio), so the tablet will hook up through A2DP & AVRCP. This should allow for steering wheel control of the audio tracks a

Steering Wheel controls?


Saturday 19th of January 2013 / droidforums.net
This might seem like a rather odd idea, but I was thinking about installing a Pioneer Appradio 2 to control my phone on my car stereo. I can't justify spending who knows what on installation costs when all I want is to hear my Pandora through my stereo and conveniently able to switch apps. Then I thought about a possible workaround, using my steering wheel. It has Volume/Channel up/down and a Mode button.Is there a way to integrate my steering wheel buttons into switching volume, changing tracks and switching modes while still being able to use it with my existing stereo? I have an AM/FM radio w/ CD player and also a tape deck.Is there a way to hook up a backup camera to your Smartphone via bluetooth?My current setup is Smartphone to Bluetooth to tape deck adapter to stereo. I had the car dock for my RAZR MAXX but the audio went bad on it.

Sirius XM app display question/configuration


Friday 06th of September 2013 / droidforums.net
Hello Everyone,I have a 2013 Accord Sedan Sport which didn't come with a Sirius XM trial, so I'm currently using the app on my phone via bluetooth. I called Honda and was told the factory stereo in the Sport trim does not allow a Sirius XM tuner to be added on in order to view the artist and song title on the factory LCD and use the steering wheel controls since there is no Sirius XM logo listed as a media source. It's a hardware issue, not a software issue. I also called a few local car stereo shops and was told that if the factory stereo doesn't have an input for a Sirius XM tuner, I'd have to buy a Sirius XM ready stereo and the music info would display on the after market stereo, not the factory LCD.For now, I'm OK with using my phone app to listen to satellite radio, but the convenience of controlling channels, pause, etc from my steering wheel controller and viewing the music info on my LCD would be so much nicer. I did notice that if I don't launch the Sirius app while my phone connects to my car's bluetooth, the phone's default music player starts. I can view the music info o

Remote control of a Asus Memo Pad HD7 in a car using the steering wheel controls?


Monday 22nd of September 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hi, First post here. I'm new to Android having recently bought a cheap Wondermedia tablet to play with. Now that I have a basic understanding of how android works, I bought a ASUS Memopad HD7 as a proper tablet. I'm very pleased with it and hooked! I have a question on controlling Android in the car, I’m wondering if any knowledgeable folks on here might have an answer. Apologies for the length of this post but here is what I am trying to do: Is it possible to control an android tablet or phone by using the steering wheel radio/cd remote controls fitted on my 2006 Ford Mondeo ST TDCI? I have an Asus Memopad HD7 (with wifi & Bluetooth) which I want to use as the primary media player in my car. I’m using the ES File explorer app on the HD7 to play my MP3 and FLAC files into the aux in on Head unit fitted in my car. I have quite a large music collection (~1TB) that was becoming difficult to ‘transport’ with me, on portable devices such as the HD7, due to SD card size limitations. So I decided to centralise my collection by putting all my songs on a single 2TB hard disc at ho

Olympus f6 New Car Bluetooth


Saturday 04th of October 2014 / androidforums.com
Hi. I'm having a new car/bluetooth/phone issue. I have two metro pcs lg phones. My LG Motion, and my wife's LG Olympus f6. Both phones pair successfully with our new '15 Subaru Forester. However, while the lg motion works flawlessly and as it should with the new vehicle's blueconnect, when paired with the Olympus f6, the audio stays with the headset and never switches over to the car stereo. The Olympus will dial using steering wheel controls, but again wont get the audio over the car stereo. The only other thing I've noticed is on my lg motion while paired with the car I can dial on my phone and the car will pick it up as it should. When I do this on the lg olympus f6 the car doesnt pick it up. Any dial attempts while paired with the Olympus f6 has to be done on the steering wheel controls and not via the handset. It seems like it wants to work but there some hidden mute somewhere unknown to me and its making me nutty.I've been to MetroPCS and they said their have been no reported problems with this handset and pairing to other vehicles. They suggested a factory reset which I just d
