Track info with Bluetooth AVRCP and NowPlayingConnection

Using the NowPlayingConnection, I am able to partially control the AVRCP Bluetooth audio system of my (Subaru) Car.
Anyone knows how to control the displayed track information?

 

I've tried all meta data fields of NowPlayingConnection.
I can control the content of the 2nd line with NowPlayingConnection::setPosition
And the play, stop, next, previous commands are successfully received.

 

But the first line always displays: "T - ---" (With the last 3 '-' being wider than the first one.
Any idea where this information is coming from and how it can be controlled?

The same information is displayed by the built in Music app.

 

That value is not displayed when streaming from an Android phone, so it appears to originate within BB10

Re: Track info with Bluetooth AVRCP and NowPlayingConnection

I've mentioned your problem to the BlackBerry Bluetooth development team. They've asked for details of the in-car unit you're working with (make, model etc) and if possible a photo of the issue as described.

 

Thanks

Here is a picture showing the issue. 

I'll have to look-up for the details of the unit.

I've seen this behaviour on Clarion CZ624u1 and Clarion CM621UB

Thanks Martin. Could you also post a photo of how it looks when you use your Android device please?
