iPhone 6 Audio Streaming Issue

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

New to the forum. Look forward to future discussion.

 

I purchased a 2014 High Country yesterday. I've synced my iPhone 6 to MyLink and can use the truck's bluetooth compatibility for phone calls just fine. The issue arises when I want to play music. I have no songs on iTunes. All of my music is on Spotify. The only option MyLink gives me in terms of listening to music is accessing my phone's iPod library (which doesn't exist). If I could play my Spotify music via the bluetooth connection or the USB cable I'd be totally happy. Please help!

With the iPhone you have to use the USB cable to control the functions of Spotify.

 

It works by plugging in the cable, pressing the media button until your iPhone shows up on your Mylink then launch Spotify using your iPhone.

 

Unfortunately, you have to use the iPhone to control it fully. You can skip forward or back with the head unit but that's it but you have to launch the app from your phone 1st.

 

You do get the metadata pass thru so all of the album art and song information shows up on your head unit.

While this may be true, I always use Spotify and my iPhone on bluetooth. I just select the playlist with my phone, it starts playing and then I can skip tracks with the mylink/intellilink controls no problem. The meta data is displayed on the screen too.

Cool. My iPhone is always connected in the truck as a hotspot / media streaming device as I have two phones. Never tried Bluetooth connection on it. Just on my Android phone.

I too use Spotify via Bluetooth in my 14 Sierra SLE with no issues other than glitches from time to time where it may not connect. Controls from my wheel works as well.

With the latest update of iOS (which supports Apple Music), I can no longer play anything but stuff in Apple Music through USB. When I go to open Spotify and play a track, it will play for about 3 seconds and then start playing the first track in Apple Music.

 

It works fine in Bluetooth, but now I can't use the USB port to charge my phone and listen to Spotify now...

I used to really enjoy Apple products, but this is ridiculous.

 

I really hope theres an update to MyLink when I take the truck in for service.

I don't use the USB ports in the truck to charge, I feel like they don't put out.

That's interesting, because mine charges must faster than if I use the 110v and regular apple charger...

For folks complaining that Spotify isn't working I found a fix. My iPhone 6+ just stopped working after I wiped all the music off of it as I just wanted to use it for Spotify. The radio would display the name of the iPhone but when I'd open Spotify and start playing a song or playlist, it would show as playing on the phone but no audio or metadata was coming through the radio. I was sure to try turning up the audio level on the phone but that didn't make a difference. Here's what I found...you need to have at least one song in the "Music" app (loaded through iTunes) in order for any audio to come out of the iPhone via USB. This is a change in iOS 8.4 so thank Apple for these issues. Now, when I press "Media" on the radio to select the iPhone, the one song I loaded onto the phone (Sing by Ed Sheeran) starts to play. I then pause the song, open Spotify, select a playlist there, and it plays every single time. I didn't try Bluetooth because I'd prefer to leave the iPhone plugged in through the center console. I only use it for streaming music and hotspot in the truck. I use an Android for my primary phone for calls, texts, and Bluetooth stuff in the truck. Hope this helps, it worked for me this AM when I tested it!

Hes talking about the usb ports. not the 110v outlet. The usb ports are low voltage and wont charge very fast.

 

I use a cigarette lighter USB dongle to charge when in the truck.

I registered an account just to say that this solution worked for me. I recently picked up a 2014 Terrain and I've been struggling to get Spotify working via Bluetooth or USB for 2 days now. I'm normally very tech-inclined, but I could not for the life of me figure it out. Once I put a single track into the Music app on my iPhone 6, it popped right on and switching over to Spotify without even pausing the song made Spotify play instantly. Annoying bug, but clever workaround. Thanks!

Interestingly enough, the wife's 2014 Equinox has ZERO issues with playback.

As for iPhone audio, the trouble to me is about how to play iPhone audio on Android phone without DRM protection. We know all purchased or rented iTunes audios like Apple music, audiobook, etc are combined with fairplay DRM protection, it can be played on Apple devices only. If you really wan to play these audios or stream it to other devices, you may have to use a tool to remove DRM protection at first. iTunes DRM Audio Converter is such a program that designed for all iTunes users to get rip of DRM protection and convert audios from M4P to MP3, AAC, etc at faster speed with lossless quality. After conversion, it will be much easier for us to enjoy all iTunes audios on any devices without limitation. CLICK HERE to learn its detail functions.

What is your affiliation with the company of the converter you recommended? You only have two posts and both those posts are external links to software. Do you even own a GM truck?

      Hello everyone, this is long and appreciate the feedback
       
      So this is the second time that this has happened to me. I do not know what cases this but here's the story.
       
      First instance, i was leaving the dealer after picking up new floor mats (they were not installed, does not matter to what happened). While leaving and making a uturn to hit the street i hit a driveway(to another dealer) and put my foot down halfway          (at least 1/4 and i believe 1/2) and nothing was happening. It almost felt like it was in the middle of changing gears but for 2 full seconds by the end of the 2 seconds i was at least 3/4 down on the pedal.
      Since this was the first time i did not really think of it and kept going and took note of what happened, thinking that i was over exaggerating.
       
      The second time, i was running through a yellow light and was 100ft away when it turned yellow and was doing roughly 30mph. i got on the throttle to "get through" the light without getting a ticket. nothing happened again till i got at least 1/2 down on the throttle and it took off but at this point i bearly broke the line when the light turned yellow. 
       
      So my question is, what does everyone think that happened? I will be going back to the dealer soon for a software update this week, and will let them look the truck over.
      would this be a cause of the throttle assembly/TMS(torque management system)?

      I don't know where to begin...I haven't had any OS updates for my iPhone X in over a month, the last software/firmware updates for the truck were done last Fall, so last week...the phone is hooked up via USB & Blutooth.  This is normally how I have been hooking up the phone to my truck since I bought my truck over 3 years ago.  If I disconnect the USB and run the phone straight Blutooth, music will play through the trucks stereo system.  As soon as I hook up the USB cable, the infotainment system will display what song is being played and all related information...but you will only hear the music playing from the ear speaker of the phone.  If you unplug the USB cable again, the infotainment system will want you to select the Blutooth media and the song will pick up where it left off when the USB cable was plugged in.  Things I've tried...
       
      Resetting the phone and the Infotainment system for a fresh sync.
      Tried a different USB cable and all USB ports in the truck.
      Checked every setting on the truck and on the iPhone.
       
      Anyone got a clue what to do?

      We've been waiting a long time to announce this: we have finally started receiving the Linkswell GEN3 "T-Style" 12.1" tablet replacement radio for GM trucks (part number TS-GMPU12-1RR1)! Having seen a prototype version of this unit at the SEMA show last November, it's amazing to finally see the finished production piece:


       
      Read more about the unit: https://www.adcmobile.com/product/gen-iii-t-style-radio-for-gm-trucks/
      To see the actual production unit and accessories, visit this gallery: https://drive.google.com/open?id=17lCS_GjFhwSnGHSWsvsu47Pa6Qm7joML
      To see screenshots of the user interface, visit this gallery:https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ziyLjKHkYZH848alonmX7yfnmGWr235S
       
      Here's the installation video in a 2019 Silverado 3500HD Z-71: 
       

      The unit will replace the factory 4" (RPO code IO3 or IO4), 7" (IOB) or 8" (IO5 or IO6) radio in 2014-18 Silverado/Sierra 1500 and 2015-19 Silverado/Sierra 2500 & 3500 with either non-amplified or amplified (BOSE) sound systems, and ships with all harnesses and adapters that will be required for the installation in the box. The only exception is for trucks that have the factory BOSE systems - these will require an additional adapter that is kind of expensive (suggested retail is crazy, but we are selling them for our cost to help out guys with BOSE trucks). FYI: Alpine's adapter is actually made by Linkswell. Speaking of the Alpine radio, we carry that as well, but is is almost double the cost: https://www.adcmobile.com/product/alpine-restyle-gm-truck-mechless-receiver-i209-gm/

      The GEN3 unit mounts in the dashboard exactly like the factory radio: it uses the original mounting points and screws to hold in the unit, and the outboard trim pieces clip in like factory. Although it moves the factory HVAC controls to the radio (on the hard buttons on the trim pieces as well as on-screen), it maintains the factory switches that are located at the bottom of the radio location under the factory HVAC controls. The unit itself is beautiful, with a dark grey bezel around the 12" vertical screen, with very high-quality control buttons for HVAC functions on both sides of the screen and two large silver knobs for on/off-volume and tuning and control functions. It has mounting bosses that line up to the factory radio mounting points and it ships with silver side wing panels that have an OEM-level finish, that can also be painted if you want to match a different color. The side panels also accept the factory switches (if any) that are currently mounted there. It has an improved UI that includes colored icons to more closely match the factory look and in contrast to the GEN2 units that had Android 4.4.4, it now has an Android 7.1 operating system. It has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of total internal memory. These cannot be upgraded, but external memory is virtually unlimited, as you can hook up external USB sticks or hard drives.

      They updated the UI slightly to include colored icons that are similar to the factory. Although the unit is an Android tablet, the user interface is actually an overlay that cannot be changed both on the "home" screen and the menu bar, so you will not be able to "dock" your favorite apps or features into the either location. This is a little frustrating, as it forces you to go into the app list in order to launch your apps, but it does guarantee that the unit looks very clean and very factory at all times.

      Here are a few shots of the actual production hardware showing the color, texture and finish of the radio, the control buttons and trim:

      Radio unit (note it has the screen protector film on it):


      Side trim:


      Left side buttons:


      Right side buttons:


      The unit has full wifi capability, so it allows you to connect to your vehicle's hotspot or a hotspot on your phone in order to run just about any app you can download from the Google Play Store. It ships with Google Maps built-in, and can run run WAZE or any other app you choose. It can also be purchased with iGo Next-Gen navigation (or upgraded to it at a later time) for navigation that does not require wifi to operate. The iGo navi upgrade runs $100.

      In addition, since it is an Android tablet and can be used as such, those of you that use your trucks for work can run any Android app that you would normally run to conduct your business, like Quickbooks, calendar apps, messaging apps, proprietary business apps, etc., giving you the ability to make your truck your office, and move the functions that you would normally have to do on your phone, tablet or laptop over to the radio that is always-on and doesn't require anything but a hotspot to function. I know when I was working on the road doing installs, I would have killed to have a deck like this that would have allowed me to review my schedule and enter data without having to bring up anything else on my phone or laptop :- )

      It supports Bluetooth 4.0 protocol for hands-free and A2DP music streaming (requires the supplied external mic for Bluetooth hands-free), and supports factory OnStar, steering wheel controls, HVAC controls, vehicle settings and USB ports. It DOES NOT retain the factory CD player or satellite tuner. Although it doesn't retain factory XM radio, the SiriusXM app can be installed on the unit, allowing access to 100+ additional channels of satellite programming than the in-car tuner for $7.99/mo.: https://www.siriusxm.com/xtrachannels, and of course all apps like Pandora, Spotify and iHeart Radio can be used as well. Retaining factory XM was definitely on my own "must have" list of features, but some design allowances (see below) made this MUCH more difficult to integrate easily.

      The system has a total of three USB inputs (the factory USB and two additional inputs), and it will allow USB audio and video content to be played (yes, even while moving, but we don't want you to do that : -). It can also support gaming apps on the tablet and even run old school games using some of the common emulators and downloadable ROMS that are available, with USB controllers to give you a more X-Box or PS2/3/4 experience: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrOxIscDLdU. 

      It also ships with a USB dongle that adds Apple Car Play and Android Auto to the unit, giving you the ability to have Car Play/Android Auto without having to upgrade the factory hardware (and still be stuck with the factory radio). Last time we checked, just doing the Car Play upgrade to an existing factory radio cost $1000, https://www.infotainment.com/products/2014-2015-chevrolet-silverado-mylink-apple-carplay-and-android-auto-upgrade so when you consider that you get all of the other features as well, the T-Style radio option starts looking pretty attractive! Additionally, the adapter has a mode that will allow true display mirroring from an iPhone or Android device (settings would need to be changed, and not all devices will be guaranteed compatible with this mode).

      Apple Car Play interface:


      Car Play audio display:


      There is an optional outboard DVR camera available that can both record your trips onto an SD card ( not included) inserted into the camera, but that also functions as a driving aid to warn of lane departure, etc. This may be something that could be considered very cheap insurance, since having a video record of any accidents or other mayhem that happens on the road in front of you can literally turn out to be a lifesaver!

      The system has a total of three camera inputs. One of the inputs will display the factory rear camera (the factory rear camera adapter is included in the box) or allow you to add an aftermarket rear camera if your truck did not come with a rear camera. There is a right side camera and a front camera input as well. A right side camera can be added and that input can be triggered by the right turn signal if you wish, or manually through the touchscreen. The front camera input can only be triggered manually through the touchscreen. Keep in mind that just because they are labeled "right" and "front", these camera inputs can be used for any camera you may add (like a wireless camera on a trailer or camper), a camera under the truck if you do rock crawling or off-roading, or even any video device that you just need a display for.

      Camera interface:


      The system has one AV input, giving you the ability to connect outboard AV sources such as media players, games, etc., and for the first time on any T-Style radio, a rear AV output! This is pretty huge because it will allow you to set up a full rear entertainment system in the truck using the head unit as a source. This includes the AV input, the radio or any file that can be played on the USB input. I don't know if it will send app audio and video like Netflix to this output, but I will try and find that answer and report back. If you set up a system with headrests or an overhead DVD unit that has outputs, you can send the radio's output to the rear and the rear system's output to the radio, giving you ultimate flexibility for entertainment options! NOTE: THE UNIT IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THE FACTORY REAR ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM. This means that if you have the factory rear entertainment system, it will not function - you would have to replace that system, or add something like headrest monitors in order to have rear entertainment. We will try and determine if there are any workarounds for this limitation...

      It has a file manager so you can do standard file management operations as you would do on your tablet or laptop, and since it also contains a Chrome internet browser, you can surf the net as you would on any tablet, and download files as well. Downloaded files can be saved to any memory attached to the unit - internal memory or external USB drives. One very important and cool feature is that it will allow you to install .APK files (APPS) from any source, not just the Google Play store! This is important because there are literally dozens of APK mirror websites that have hundreds of thousands of apps available for download that are not necessarily available from the Play store. Of course, if you download anything that is NOT in the Play store, you should always verify the safety of the apps you are installing...

      The system supports all factory HVAC control layouts, including manual controls, auto controls, etc. It has large control buttons on both sides of the bezel to control common functions. It has HVAC controls built into the interface as well. It controls factory vehicle settings, but I don't have a firm grip on exactly what each one of them does.

      HVAC Interface:


      Vehicle options:


      The "cold boot" time is pretty unimpressive (~45 seconds!), but it has a "fast boot" setting that you can set to 15 minutes, 12 hours, 24 hours or 48 hours that allows the radio to stay in a "sleep mode" for that preset time, making it essentially "instant-on" when you come back to it within that time frame. This feature will draw tiny amounts of power, so it's advisable to make sure you have a healthy battery in the truck if you set this for extremely long intervals. The radio will prioritize the backup camera, so if you do start driving after a "cold boot", the backup camera will operate pretty much immediately.

      Here's a little side note on the design priorities that have been shared with me (and my own impressions of the company and their previous products): When they first suggested they were considering the unit for GM trucks, I was extremely excited to see what they could come up with, because this is the same company that had been making the GM multi-camera modules we have been selling for almost 5 years under various manufacturer names, and who we knew understood and were comfortable with the factory systems in these trucks. I had literally dozens of suggestions for them, and shared what I felt were the priorities they should hit if they wanted this unit to be successful. My original request was to be able to retain as much as possible of the factory MyLink system and all factory options. They said that although they had been very comfortable with the camera interfaces, those were a pretty finite challenge that mainly involved "hijacking" the video and touchscreen streams and substituting their own functions, while removing the factory head unit and retaining all of the factory features for every version of factory audio system in these trucks took the engineering challenges to a completely new level!

      For instance, since GM never shares their data on the MyLink system with aftermarket manufacturers, all of the data that needs to be supported in this kind of swap needs to be sleuthed out after the vehicle is delivered, by trial and error, using production vehicles equipped with all of the various systems. This makes producing a single unit to replace all possible combinations of factory systems (IO3, IO4, IO5, IO6 and IOB, along with all options in each level) a literal nightmare. They investigated just doing a replacement screen that retained all of the factory HMI and radio tuners, MyLink, etc., but this has proven to be a HUGE undertaking. While it is still being developed, that type of product will take immense fine-tuning to make it viable since potential problems can be caused with a factory update, negating any integration they have done and causing issues that would make the customer want to rip it out of the dash! Like Alpine has already done with their replacement radio (at $2000, almost twice as expensive as well), Linkswell decided to just do a complete replacement radio that bypasses most of the factory modules and so does not rely so heavily on interpreting the factory data stream. This allows the system to be much less dependent on factory data, and lets the radio system live pretty much independently of any updates done to the truck, making the owner's experience a whole lot less troublesome in the future.

      We have received information from a supplier tied to another manufacturer of similar radios (Phoenix Android) that has gone down the path of retaining the factory modules saying that they are having ongoing issues with their CANBUS integration and are considering pulling the product from the market due to these problems. Of course, they won't mention this when trying to sell you a radio - keep in mind that not all manufacturers are created equal! There are other units out there that are similar (like the Phoenix), and we get asked every day why the Linkswell units are more expensive if they are the same unit. Simple answer - they are not the same unit! Although they are similar in layout, the underlying hardware and most importantly, the programming and functionality is NOT AT ALL the same - if you watch some of their demo videos, it's very obvious that they did not really think through their control layout, as they have AT LEAST three different HVAC control methods, and because they have attempted to retain the factory MyLink functions (see my comments regarding this above), it's also very obvious that it slows down the unit considerably. Another HUGE difference is the physical layout of the radio and how it mounts in the truck - the Phoenix radio comes with the radio and the side trim all as one piece, which has a very distinctive disadvantage: you cannot actually screw it into the dashboard! It can only be mounted with clips because the side trim panels are not removable, which makes it EXTREMELY easy to steal, since the thief doesn't even need any tools! The Linkswell unit is designed to mount basically the same as the factory unit, with the factory screws, and the trim panels clip in like factory.

      In conclusion, the people at Linkswell know that we are never shy about sharing our impressions of their product :- ), and I'm happy to say that they listen to us very closely when it comes to suggesting updates and tweaks. They have literally written new firmware for us overnight when we have identified issues that needed to be corrected, and our fixes have been integrated into the ongoing firmware updates that their F**d and RAM units have received. In other words, it's really refreshing to have a company listen to us when we tell them what's wrong with their products and they fix them based on our input! We will most definitely be giving the same type of feedback on these radios if and when we see something that needs to be fixed or changed.

      We have already sold a couple hundred of the Linkswell "GEN2" F**d F-Series and RAM radios, and have had a largely trouble-free experience. As I mentioned above, there have been a couple hiccups that have been addressed in firmware updates, but the hardware has been very solid. For the most part, guys are very satisfied with them, provided they are comfortable with losing factory features that the replacement radio doesn't support (mainly the CD player and satellite radio). The overwhelming majority of issues we have dealt with have been install-related, and even though we have some pretty in-depth videos and install photos & guides, some guys have had install & setup problems, and other issues that have forced reloading or updating the firmware to fix. Some issues stem from users changing settings that are not supposed to be touched, and some just due to not really really understanding what they have gotten themselves into. Although you don't need to be a professional installer to install these types of radios, it does require that you are able to read instructions, watch videos and have some knowledge of mechanical and electrical concepts. We very much want the installation to be as "pain-free" as possible, and we very much want to help you with the install, so if this is something that you feel you would want to tackle yourself, it is highly suggested that you call us in advance so we can pass along some of our "installer tips" to help insure things go well.

      Feature-wise, here's the highlights:

      Android 7.1 operating system
      12.1″ HD touch screen Android Tablet
      Optional iGO NextGen Navigation System (w/full screen display)
      Will run Google Maps, WAZE etc.
      Download and run apps from the Google Play Store
      AM/FM Radio w/RDS (18 FM presets, 12 AM presets, plus My Favorite Stations )

      How many time has your radio deleted your profile. MY has done it 3 time in the last seven months and it not saved any where. Now I have lost the messenger app also

      My iPhone has the volume turned down ever time I connect to my 2019 GMC AT4.   I had the phone checked and all diagnostics came back fine.  You have to manually adjust the volume on your phone when entering or leaving the truck. to avoid missing calls.  Spent numerous hours trying to figure this out.  It works fine in my wife's Ford Explorer.  So,  I took it back to the dealer to find it is a know problem and GMC has no updates to fix it.   Has anyone experienced this and found a resolution, as I am confident after speaking to GMC that it a program coding issue for them.
