Ratings and Reviews
A first hack.
This app seems like the first attempt to connect a phone to the stereo. There is no need for the app in its current state, however. The main feature is that you can play music via Bluetooth on the stereo - but before the app, I was able to easily do that using iTunes and the existing Bluetooth connection. Also, with the app you get a message saying there is a connection error (even though it is correctly connected). I’m happy with how iTunes and Bluetooth work together, so no need for this app. I was hoping that the app would provide a nice GUI where I could go and adjust all of the settings on my stereo. Pushing the volume knob to cycle through menus is tedious, so I see the potential of having an app that lets you adjust all of the menus with a much better interface. It would be nice to use the phone to set up radio presets (especially the 2nd and 3rd layer settings). Unfortunately, the app does not have any functionality at this time except for playing music - which already exists with iTunes. I’ll keep looking for updates and adjust my review if the app starts delivering features that improve the functionality of the stereo.
Waste of time
Just got a new JVC receiver the other day. Saw on the box that there was an app I could use to control it. “Sweet!” I thought. Well I was wrong. The app doesn’t always like to connect or is slow at it or gives you an error but still connects. The app has the options to pretty much do whatever the receiver allows you to do but way easier to navigate. Just one problem... It doesn’t work. I was able to skip songs, change volume/modes and EQ presets. But that was also when it wanted to work and let me do those things. Never was able to actually change the EQ settings since the buttons never worked to tune it. So overall it’s a pointless app right now so download it if you’re looking to get frustrated.
Seems like an issue at 1st but it’s not awful
I struggled too at first, it wouldn’t connect. Then I read the error message FULLY. Forget about turning your car off and on. That’s not the issue, and it doesn’t work. The issue that they don’t mention directly is that you need the car stereo set to a certain mode. Make sure the source is: IPOD BT. It can’t just be on Bluetooth it won’t recognize what you’re doing. Since I’ve done that. I’ve been able to get in the car, wait about 5-10 seconds to pair with stereo while I get my seatbelt on, turn on the app, (which I went to preferences and made sure it vibrates on sync so I know right away if it’s connecting) and It connects within seconds in the IPOD BT mode. The vibrate gives you more easy that you’re connecting. Then you can adjust the settings and little more easier. As for the makeup of the app and what it can do. It’s like a generic remote control it gets the job done.
