    Just out of curiosity...I'm wondering exactly what I'm "missing" due to this apparent problem with the Mazda 3 BT module.

     

    For devices/modules that ARE capable of seeing this song metadata on the Mazda display, is is simply a static info screen showing the album/song/artist/track (like when you play an MP3 CD), or are you actually able to navigate the music files on your device (iPhone) via the Mazda controls?

     

    If the former, this is just mildly annoying. If the latter, then add my name to the petition!

    AVRCP 1.3 only deals with metadata display.  1.4 adds browsing support.  iOS currently only supports 1.3, so it will require a software update to go from 1.3 to 1.4.  It's probably not that easy to do because any changes to the AVRCP profile would likely require companion changes in the apps that use the profile, most notably the Music app.

     

    Whether the Mazda display would be capable of browsing depends on whether it supports 1.4.  If it doesn't, then a firmware update would be required for the Mazda system in addition to the iOS software update.

    I've tried it with the Pandora app as well in my 2012 CX-9 with nav and RSES. It doesn't show song titles or artists. I believe the Pandora app does support AVRCP.

    Just a shot in the dark, but has anyone considered whether this issue is related to the PLAYER being used on their iPhone? I intend to try using the default music player app (and expect it to fail to show track info etc. as described by everyone else), and will then also try playing my music with Soundhound (the only other music playing app I currently have installed).

     

    Any reason to believe this might make a difference? Anyone alreayd tried these/other music playing apps?

    Yes, it does.  The Pandora metadata displays on the system in my Toyota Highlander.

    I just purchased a 2012 Mazda CX9 GT and am having an issue trying to upload the phonebook from my iPhone 4s via Bluetooth. Actually, there are two issues. One is that all of the contacts that are loaded onto the Mazda are loaded in duplicate. Two of every contact. The other issue is that some of the contacts in my iPhone contacts aren't uploaded at all. So I have double of most and some that aren't uploaded at all.

     

    Has anyone had any similar issues? Any suggestions how to correct the problem?

    Any updates from Blarnson (working with Mazda's NE Regional manager) or Derek Ivey (opened a bug report with Apple and sent them logs)?  It seems like it's been a few months so I figured we'd ping them. ..

     

    Thank you

    No updates on my bug report . It's been open since January 8! I just commented on it asking for an update.

    Got an update from Apple today. Sounds like we're screwed unless Mazda releases a fix.

     

     

    10-Jul-2012 02:19 PM Apple Developer Bug Reporting Team :

    Engineering has provided the following feedback regarding this issue:

     

     

    We discussed this issue with the manufacturer. They acknowledged there is a critical bug on their platform, as they require the phone to support no more than AVRCP 1.3. Because iOS supports AVRCP 1.4 since 5.0, they do not enable & use any AVRCP 1.3 feature. The bug has been fixed on their newer platforms.

    Sounds like BS doesn't it?  How can a device that supports AVRCP 1.4, not support 1.3?

    Remember it's not just Mazda with this problem, the same issues have been reported in many third party (aftermarket) stereo HUs.

    You would think it would be backwards compatible. Or Apple should give the user the option to use 1.3.

    Thought you might like to know also that my Blackberry Bold works flawlessly with my 2012 Mazda 3 S Grand and all controls work great. That includes all display of artist, tracks, time, pause, everything. Sad that Apple cannot get this worked out as I have an Ipad 3 that plays great via BT but doesn't display any info.

     

    There are numerous articles about this all over the internet that most androids work great as above.

    Just updated my Verizon iPhone 4s with iOS6. It still does not show any track information on my 2011 Mazda CX-9.  Basic audio can still be streamed via Bluetooth. 

     

    Anybody else have any luck with iOS6?

    I gave up. I don't think it's ever going to be fixed (for current cars atleast). Apple uses AVRCP 1.4 and the Mazda bluetooth modules/head units only like AVRCP 1.3. Apple would have to provide a way to use AVRCP 1.3 or Mazda would have to provide some sort of upgrade to allow it to work. I doubt this will ever happen.
