Awesome, can't garantee that will fix the issue but it is likely to improve other problems posters have mentioned.

Re: Bluetooth Experiences

Is anyone getting Album artwork for Pandora, Iheart, even from their music playlist when streaming via Bluetooth? I have an iphone 5 and the artist and song information shows up, but not the Album Artwork.

I don't even get that much. I have a BlackBerry BOLD and all I get is the music to play (which is crystal clear). But on the screen it doesn't show the song info or anything, just says "BlackBerry Connect" on the screen.

But when I play music from my SD card on the BlackBerry via Bluetooth, the artist info and song does show up.

Not sure why it doesn't do it with Pandora or Slacker Radio?

Album art was not working wirelessly from anything I have tried

Meta Data is not stored the same way in a simple file copy. The playing program is communicating with the Bluetooth to show that data. the RA3 update is already posted.... working on the RA4, these updates MAY fix issues but we want to see.... UConnect updates available NOW!

I know meta data can also depend on the phone. For example, in Android 4.2.2, they changed their Bluetooth stack to something only supports BT AVCRP 1.0 which does not send meta data. In the next version, that will be updated.

Re: Bluetooth Experiences

To the OP....I've had multiple phones/devices connected via BT to my '14 WK2 and have yet to have an issue. Currently using an HTC One, but previously had a Galaxy SII Epic 4G Touch iPod Tough 4th Gen, iPhone 5, iPad Retina, and Asus Nexus 7. BT works well on each and every one of them, although when using any of them for movie audio (think 3 yr old son and road trip), the audio lags quite a bit behind the video. No connection issues at all, though.

And no album/artist info at all using Pandora. Just HTC One.

Do you get Album Artwork when playing songs wireless via BT? didnt think that was supported in the current revision.

When I looked for updates and put my VIN in, it said no updates are available for my vehicle. So does that mean I am current? Kind of sucks if I am, because I'd like the BT to work better with Pandora and Slacker to show the artist/title info. Annoying not knowing what song is playing without looking at my phone.

um, that is odd. You can see what version you are running in your system right now. It is a 8.4A or 8.4AN is it not?
