Other Android phones are able to display track info "Artist, Song" on my car's stereo. The S6 connects but doesn't display any track info, even when using the same apps and mp3s as before. It will accept music controls (skip track, volume).
How to go about troubleshooting this? Or is there a secret setting to make sure track data is displayed? I don't know where to start. AFAIK 4.3 added AVRCP support, so in theory 5.0 should have it too.
So far I've cleared all and re-added only the S6 to the car stereo. Skimmed the bluetooth log in /Android/data Checked the files in /etc/bluetooth
I had a Samsung Galaxy s3 and when I paired it with my Honda Pilot, it automatically displayed song title, artist, and such when I listen to Pandora or Spotify via Bluetooth. I just upgraded to a Samsung Galaxy s5 and when I paired it with the Honda Pilot, the music will play but no information is displaying.
Basically the town where I live (lets call it Town A) is about 20 mins away from the town where I work (Town B). When i'm at work, everything seems to be fine. My phone recognises my correct location & the town name displays correctly on the clock/weather widget on my home screen, Google maps etc.
However, the problems start when I drive home to "Town A" at the end of the day. For some reason when I get home, my phone is still convinced that i'm back near my place of work. The clock/weather widget displays the name of Town B where I work rather than Town A where I live.
When i'm at home & I open Google Maps to see a visual representation of where my phone thinks I am, it shows me near to, but not exactly at, my place of work. If I click the "My Location" icon, it will sometimes update & show my correct position at home. As a result the clock/weather widget then updates to show the correct town name. However, within a few minutes it updates again & reverts back to displaying the town name for where I work.
Interestingly i know that there is a cell phone mast about half a mile away from the location near to my work that Google Maps incorrectly pinpoints me at when at home, so it appears the phone is trying to triangulate my position from phone mast locations? Despite the fact that i have location mode set to high accuracy, so it should be using mast locations, WiFi and GPS to pinpoint my accurate position?
Bizarrely, this is the only time the location functions play up. All other times it seems to work correctly.
I've got a brilliant N900 and an N9, I use the N900 for music and the N9 for calls. I bought the BH-221 to use both at the same time, I read it could be connected at two devices at the same time [URL]I can't get it to work... When I press the call button for a second it turns off... Also, on neither the N9 nor the N900 track info shows up.
I have one song that is listed for 9 miles, and I have only run 15 miles with the device so far, but for some reason, one song is showing as being played for almost 9 miles, and I don't think that i have even listened to it for a run.
recently, whenever I recieve a message, there is no info bar displaying "1 New Message" on the home screen and there is no little envelope in the top right corner... so therefore i keep having to go to my messages and checking my inbox every 5 seconds to see if i have a message...
I'm still getting the little notification light when the phone is locked... but that's it!
I have noticed at least one person has one of these.I got mine today at Best Buy. I saw the post that says it is compatible with Garmin accessories.I have a Garmin Chest Strap monitor that pairs with the device fine.However when i start a work out it connects and does NOT show any heart rate info.I have verified that the monitor works with Garmin 305 GPS/ Monitor.I tried changing the Batteries.Or do I have a faulty unit? I noticed someone paired a new garmin premium strap.Maybe older monitors don't show data even though they pair up with the MOTOACTV?
My iphone 4s 16GB is switching from speaker to Bluetooth on it's own. Both Speaker and Bluetooth are checked when phone is answered. I need to know how I can remove active status of the Speaker so my Bluetooth can work correctly
I've been watching this product (and these forums) since the MA came out. Now that I'm cleared to run again, I'm really ready to make a purchase. I am so completley on the fence between this and a Garmin. I realize people are more apt to post the negative over the positive so help me make a comparative list:PRO MANo separate IPOD!will track other activitiesbluetooth headphonesMatt's responsiveness on these forumsCon MA (concerns, eally)battery lifeonline portal issues (as seen on these forums)"water damage" issue - rated as ipx7?!GPS reliabilityPRO GARMIN 410more stable?familiar with garmconnect (I have an etrex for trail use)A true running GPSI've tried the Garmin but I have not tried the MA - I'd LOVE to though.
I have just received a new company car where I divert my Bold 9700 via bluetooth to the in car phone.All my incoming calls show the telephone number, not the name of the caller and they are all in my contacts folder in the blackberry and also in the car unit.What do I need to change in the blackberry to instruct it to show the caller's name?
Bluetooth artist/album/track info¬†from WIMP is not shown in the car display when playing. Sometimes the info for the first track is shown but not updated when playing next track, other times "no artist/album/track info". ¬† Is this a known issue/bug in the SE 4.4.4 kitkat?
Is it possible to seek a music track by dragging/tapping the track progress bar. Or am I stuff with having ot hold the fast forward/rewind button like some kind of 1980's walkman. This lumia 820 gets worse and worse with every passing minute.
I am having a new problem with WiFi intermittently disconnecting. It seems to be happening after the screen has been turned off for a while--I turn it back on and the wifi is not connected--once I unlock the phone the wifi then automatically connects. It happens on both my home and work network, and not with any other devices. Haven't changed any settings recently. Tried to turn Smart Network Switch off but that didn't work. "Keep wifi on during sleep" is and has been set to "always".
Possibly related is that a similar thing is happening with Bluetooth. I only have Bluetooth on while driving, and I have noticed that the connection has been randomly disconnecting, and then I have to manually toggle Bluetooth back on and reconnect the phone to the car.
I have been unable to get my AT&T S5 to iniate a handsfree call from a bluetooth device if the S5 screen is locked. This is really unsafe in the car if I must pick up the phone, enter PIN or password before I can make a call. Kind of goes against the meaning of "hands free". I expected to find a screen lock bypass for "trusted" devices or something similar, but so far I have not. My bluetooth receives calls fine when locked, I just can't initiate a call.
I bought a used 9810 for a decent price, it was listed as *mint* and the cosmetic condition I'd say would be at best very very good (it had a lot of gunk under the case they had on it, I had to clean it for them).
So anyways I got it all set up I tranferred all my info from my older Torch 9800, then I pulled the 9810 out of my pocket and it was flipping through "All" "Favourites" "Downloads" "Frequents" and all of those. So I was obviously confused.
After using the phone a lot I realized that it's just the "cursor" or the pointer that is moving quickly to the top-left of the screen. If I'm on the internet I see the little pointer icon moving to the top-left corner. If I'm on anything like the main screen or blackberry app world there is a flick to the left.
To see exactly what I'm describing look at the video --> Here <-- please.
I think this is the track-pad, some other people on crackberry thought it was the screen, so I would just like to know which it is. Because this is a used phone, I do not know any of the real backround of it. I was told it was well taken care of.
Is there a simple way to fix this? (Factory Reset) or would this trackpad or screen need to be replaced?
I have an unlocked US variant S6 SM-G920T with Baseband (G920TUEU3COK1). I have been using it on Tmobile without issues since Cyber Monday.
But now, randomly, when I get a phone call from a contact that is already in the phone, I see the number on the display rather than the contact name. After I either answer or reject or allow to go to voicemail, and then go look at the call log, the contact name is displayed. This is getting annoying as I keep ignoring calls that I would like to take ( and sometimes need to take).
Only thing I've tried is to clear data and clear cache in the contacts app. Phone is not rooted...
I've just purchased the new Samsung galaxy S6. I'd like to know how you can display the picture of an incoming caller on the screen? I was able to associate an image in the contacts list but for some reason, when that person calls me, their picture doesn't show on the screen. On the IPHONE it shows a full screen image of the person calling.
I eventually got my contacts from my old dumb Nokkia into the S5....they seem to appear as Google contacts.
Now...any incoming call...from any of my contacts...it says 'unknown'.
I have played with the app's Merge+ and Contacts+....nope....just will not show the contact name of incoming call. (Just want these contacts to reside IN my phone...just like they nice and simply did in my old Nokia).
Just upgraded to S5 about a week ago and I'm finding that several of my downloaded apps are not showing up in the app list, including pre-installed apps like Kindle. Their accompanying widgets show up in the widget list, but the actual app icon is missing from the app list, the only way I can get to the app is either by adding the large widget to a home screen or by going into the playstore and searching for the app. I've tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling it but it doesn't work. In the case of the Kindle app I can't completely uninstall it since it's pre-loaded. Any other way than reformat the phone completely?
