The last update does not bring the app to the screen when I start it in my car plugged into the USB port. This used to work. The music does start playing. Also it would be nice for the app to exit when the car is turned off not just stop the music.

Better but still flawed Still need to connect and re connect for the grom unit to find it. Audio not always playing through car. Should be able to select album art from local source. Online does not find a lot of albums or the wrong cover. Update only plays half a track when playing Flac, skips to the next track half way through each song.

F I N A L L Y ! 10 months later... Now plays .mp3's via GROM-AND2 unit 90% of the time w/out going schizophrenic. Plays the entire track w/out cutting off the first or last few seconds. Resumes playback at paused / disconnected track time w/out issue. Now if you could raise the output volume to match the radio / CD player? Surround sound playback?

Always some bugs after each update For starters, a few seconds are cut off at the end of songs. Also, sometimes the player will stop playing song, which requires turning the car stereo off then on to resume playing. My advice, don't get this app unless you have their adapter. If you have their adapter, make sure to get firmware updates from their website.
