Unhappy Streaming from Spoitfy - it doesn't show the timer for the song?

Hey

I got my HRV back in Oct 2016 (European Version) and this has been bugging me ever since i got it and i don't know wether its something in the settings or...when i'm streaming from Spotify or anything really, it doesn't have like the timer for the on the display. It shows the title and that i'm streaming from BT but doesn't show the counter for the amount of time the song is playing...is there something i'm not seeing here or a setting i haven't activated?

help is much appreciated!

Thanks!

I'm afraid the HR-V's infotainment system doesn't support that. I know. I dislike it too.

When I want to feel like I'm living, I put my HR-V in sports mode.

That doesn't bother me as much as when I thought I couldn't see the information on the screen (song, etc). Then yesterday, I was randomly pressing the display/brightness button in the top left and the information popped up. I got SO excited lol.

I was just noticing this the other day too. The EX and EX-L trims do come with a native app for Pandora which allows for more information and interaction on the infotainment touch screen (things like album art, playlists, etc). But I'm a Spotify user and sadly we can't even see the time length and progress of a song playing over Bluetooth. That's just the nature of the technology. I guess we should feel fortunate that we at least get the artist/song/album information, and the ability to skip songs with the car's controls.

Are you streaming Spotify just through Bluetooth, or using an app linked to the infotainment system? I'm in North America, and I've not been able to get RockScout to work, and streaming via Bluetooth I don't see any artist/album information.

I stream Spotify over Bluetooth from my iPhone 7 to my HR-V EX in the US. Works great for me.
