Samsung Galaxy S6, Mirrorlink and the HR-V
Has anyone had any luck connecting their Samsung Galaxy S6 (or any Android phone) to their car using Mirrorlink?
From what I've researched the 2016 HR-V is using Mirrorlink 1.1, which the Galaxy S6 uses as well. The S6 does not support the MHL standard so connecting it through HDMI is out of the question.
When I connect it using USB my phone screen briefly shows a message saying it's connected to my car, and then the screen goes black. I can tap the screen to see the message again but then it goes black again. On the car screen I see the 2 arrows on the right of the screen. When I press them, it shows a message saying it's connected but then shortly after says "smartphone not compatible".
The 2 Mirrorlink compatible apps I have on my phone are RockScout (for Spotify) and Sygic car navigation. If I load RockScout and then plug the USB cable in, the Spotify button activates and I can press it and start to navigate through Spotify before my screen goes black. So it's definitely recognizing that it's connected to a Mirrorlink compatible device, i.e my HR-V.
Also, please save yourself the trouble of telling me I should have researched this before buying the car. I did research it, I was aware of the large probability that I would only be able to use my phone for Bluetooth calling and audio streaming. Everything else about the car I love, and this 1 issue wasn't enough to deter me from purchasing it.
For the moment I'm going to resign myself to purchase a phone mount and use my phone for navigation, and begin further research into a replacement HU. The Pioneer AVH-4100NEX is looking particularly enticing. Anyway, just thought I would ask to see if anyone has had any luck with Android.
