For best integration with your car stereo- use GROM hardware interface and get digital clear sound, charge and full control from the factory radio.

With GROM interface the operation is simple:

2. Only music indexed by AALinQ will be played
3. Titles and cover art displayed in player in portrait in and landscape mode
4. Full control from either AALinQ or GROM. Player stays n sync with stereo all the time

Troubleshooting when used with GROM interface:
1. Make sure you have latest firmware installed from http://gromaudio.com/software-usb2.html
2. On older phones (2.3.x) to operate you will need to turn USB Debugging option ON (Settings->Application->Development), follow suggestions from AALinQ
3. Submit support ticket if nothing helps http://gromaudio.com/support.html

Note: AALinQ works best with GROM-USB2P, GROM-AND2 or GROM-MST3 module installed in your vehicle.
Note: GROM-USB2P and GROM-MST3 must be updated to the latest firmware for all features to work

No shuffle is a deal breaker. I know android is easy to develop for but seriously why would anyone exclude basic playback options?

Good with steering wheel controls Tried approx. 6 other players and I could not reliably browse and play.

Skipping is Fixed, BUT... There are still many issues when using with my AND2 GROM. The EQ does not work. Shuffle and repeat do not work. Songs sometimes start late and end early. Sometimes playback does not start automatically when first connected and have to unplug/replug to start.

AALinQ keeps crashing Installed on HTC ONE with Grom unit fitted to Subaru Legacy. This app is constantly crashing message AALinQ has stopped, to get it working I have to uninstall and reinstall Not so good when you are driving. It also skips and stutters the music in the middle of a track. I have updated the Grom unit to version 19 but has made no difference. Please let me know what I have to do to get this working properly?
