Worthless On my Xperia Z, the app serves no purpose : "Output right now" and "Auto output" are disabled, and there is no way to get the kmchelper.exe file (if one of you has it, share it). When the phone is plugged to my stereo (in storage mode), if the sd card is mounted by the stereo, then all I get is the folder structure like a USB stick would, and KMC sees no data, and if I dismount it, KMC will see the files but the stereo won't play anymore. In short, a broken app. The JVC version isn't much better, since it never gives me the jmchelper.exe despite letting me select "Output right now" and "Auto output".

Doesn't work at all.. Piece o' sh1t is what this app is. Sadly, I even bought a kenwood radio for my car because it was compatible with android.... but not since the app is broken. There is no more USB options on an Android device, hasn't been for years. If you want to have music play from your Android to your car radio, just buy another radio... trust me (and not a Kenwood).
