I'm definitely in the minority when it comes to the statement on the title of this thread but does anyone else share the same sentiment?
My infotainment works as it should. Pandora loads up at every start up on the previous station I was listening to (even if the app wasn't open on my phone). My phones contact loads without a hitch with all previously downloaded messages. I could make phone calls by using the dial pad or the phone book.
Bluetooth audio streaming works great when I'm using an app other than Pandora to play the music that's installed in my phone. I could fast forward to the next song I'll go back to the previous song.
The only thing I can't account for is how well the system plays music from a USB drive because I don't keep music on a USB Drive, I keep it on SD card on my phone.
Ditto...same here. My NB1 "situation" does (and is) exactly
like yours. Pandora fires up by itself (same station). Sometimes, I even have to beat it running first/automatically..if I want Jango, Rdio, Tune In or other music apps to play instead via BT (so to rectify for my choice, I turn on that music app first, before firing up the push button ignition). I also do not use USB for music, so no account there as well. Music too, is inside the phone's 32GB storage.
Phone functions, SMS, phone book, anything call related...clean as a whistle.
For the record, my phone is an LG G2 on Kitkat 4.4.2 (upgraded from Jellybean 4.2.2). Both versions, no issues. Btw, I also turn off (and on, minutes before getting inside my car) Bluetooth, mainly to save on battery power (my habit of turning off anything, of not in use).
IMHO, the NB1 issue is just one side (of the Coin analogy) of the Infotainment problems of the GJ. The other side, true compatibility of the phone
(could be due to the design/hardware level of smartphone, and not just the OS/software).
