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:
1. Disk 1 is a On-The-Go playlist. Disk 2 is the first playlist, Disk 3 is second and so on
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

Update firmware too When I first installed this app, I was having issues with playback. I updated the firmware (which I got from their support, not their website) on the GROM adapter, which seemed to resolve most of the issues, except the player doesn't always work when first connected and sometimes will stop playing for no reason. If you don't have a GROM adapter, I'd be hard-pressed to recommend this to play songs on your phone, as there are better ones available.

Crashes at startup Won't even open anymore. This truly is an awful product.

Terrible It was working fine before recent updates. Now it won't auto start when plugged in, some songs play at slow motion, others sound like the chipmunks, others sound like a high pitched blender. Glad I'm rooted and backed up the old version.

Still Problems Music skips on every song, unusable. Folder display problem at the top of now playing like others described. Very frustrating, the choppy playback is too bad for me to use.
