My Car audio system supports AVRCP v1.3 which, when my iPhone 4 buddies play music over BT, the song title is displayed on the radio... I have just upgraded to JellyBean and find that i am still not having any luck with my android device

Phone Specs

  • Samsung Galaxy s i9000
  • Android Version 4.1.1
  • ROM MIUI-2.10.5 JellyHeff

Wikipedia quotes: AVRCP has several versions with significantly increasing functionality:

  • 1.0—Basic remote control commands (play/pause/stop, etc.)

  • 1.3—all of 1.0 plus metadata and media-player state support The status of the music source (playing, stopped, etc.) Metadata
    information on the track itself (artist, track name, etc.).

  • 1.4—all of 1.0, 1.3, plus media browsing capabilities for multiple media player Browsing and manipulation of multiple players Browsing
    of media metadata per media player, including a "Now Playing" list
    Basic search capabilities

Any Ideas where the problem is?

I don't think that base android supports avrcp beyond version 1.0. A lot of the community created ROMs have added support for the other levels into their custom systems. However the stock version doesn't have it.

  • Thanks!... I have tried a few of the custom ROM's but still have not found one that supports later versions... I would love to hear from anyone that has got this working?

  • I have CM10 on my Galaxy Infuse. Google Play Music transmits song metadata but not Pandora sadly. My car stereo is a Pioneer AVH P2400BT. Commented Nov 1, 2012 at 22:57
  • See the CM10 changelog where they added AVRCP support, github.com/CyanogenMod/android_vendor_cyanogen/blob/gingerbread/… Commented Nov 1, 2012 at 23:06
