Ratings and Reviews
So bit by bit this app gets worse! Has got to the point now it won’t even open on my iPad mini 2 (integrated into my car dashboard)
I am gutted I ever bought the mex5100bt now.
Update, I bought an mex n6002bd hidden under the seat in my car and an iPad mini 4 which is the only thing you could see in my car. It worked ok, but I did have to go a bit old school and get an rmx4s to control some features.
I have since sold the car and decided to go better again for even more quality, so bought the flagship rsx-gs9
I am still bench testing before I install all this, and unfortunately I feel I have wasted an awful lot of money. Cmon sony I paid £1300 for one of your head units! How many people pay that for a car stereo with hardly any features!!!!! (Although I was happy with it)
This disappointing part is that when you stream via usb, the app disconnects “to play iPod” I realise it’s working correctly, but this is rubbish.
Surely a tweak in software would solve this. Also why does it HAVE to run on Bluetooth. Again I can get around this, but with the cheaper version I could pair 2 items so use my phone for calls and iPad for controls.
I would love if I could use the app when connected via usb, and NOT disconnect when using certain sources. Leaving the Bluetooth free for calls. I would have my perfect system then.
Cmon, what audiophile streams via Bluetooth
Sort it sort it sort it Sony, this is a stupid and simple software tweak
This app is useless. I bought a Sony SRS - XB41 wireless speaker.
You connect your speaker to your iPhone or iPad. No problem there.
When you open the app, it shows you’re connected and you can use all the features fine.
Say, you flick off the app to use another app, when you come back to the song app,
there will be another device which says “ Needs to be setup “.
So now you have 2 devices showing. The one you’re connected and the other saying need to set up.
The connected one will be greyed out. If you click the connected device, the app will attempt to connect again even though my music is still playing through the speaker.
It then says please connect to Bluetooth.
Whilst in this state, you’re unable to communicate with the speaker using phone.
You can’t lower volume, skip track etc etc.
When it says please connect the speaker to Bluetooth, I go settings, Bluetooth and then look at the available devices.
As expected, it shows my speaker is connected to my phone.
If I select the device which is already connected, nothing happens as it’s already connected.
Now, when I go back to the Sony app, it’s working.
Basically, everything I leave the app it’s working, when I go back the app is saying need to set up.
I have to constantly keep going Bluetooth settings to reconnect even if it’s still connected & playing my music.
Get a grip Sony.
Very very poor.
5.11 update has broken the app!!!
It was working fine, until I updated to version 5.11 on my iPhone 6+ and now it is terrible! I tried deleting and reinstalling, rebooting my phone, all made no difference.
Every letter when you type in the library search field takes ages to register, as if it is in slow motion, but even worse it is not picking up all of the songs in my iTunes library - useless! Navigating around the whole of the app is jerky, slow and laggy, everything was working fine until you released this version, clearly something has gone very wrong with this update. I’m very disappointed and worried that, having spent thousands of pounds on several of these srs speakers, I now find that I can’t use them until you fix this mess. I can’t even roll back to the previous version which was working. Come on Sony, someone please sort this out as a matter of urgency!!!
