A bit more on this
DriveLink seems to be incompatible with many (most?) android phones, and if it can be installed, just does not work. Go look at the user reports here https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...=app.scm&hl=en
Also, I have seen it reported that even when working, it is single task - play music or follow a map. Not what you want!
I have emailed the developer - [email protected]
- but that email ID does not exist. The app has not been updated since Feb 2013.
I therefore conclude that this app is dead, and there is no MirrorLink implementation for Android phone users.
I have emailed MirrorLink also, will post any reply I get.
So, what to do?
If enough people cause enough trouble by demanding that dealers help with getting the promised functionality working, maybe car manufacturers will put pressure on Samsung and/or MirrorLink to get things working as promised.
Put all your music on a USB memory stick.
Continue to use your smartphone for GPS mapping functiions - if using a USB memory stick you will need a USB charger for the 12 voltr socket, but you probably have one of those already! (Wonder if a 2 port USB switch will work with the USB socket??)
Use Bluetooth telephone functions to achieve hands free telephone usage.
