Post by Newtothis90 » Sat Jun 27, 2020 3:13 pm

Is it possible to get the song name / artist for my Spotify on the display?

Just says Android auto ATM

Never found a way to do it with mine. Even when I had it set to display in the middle of the screen so it had “priority” it just used to say “Apple Carplay”.

No work around this? Is it a vw thing or android auto thing.

Same thing happens even when I just play music from my phone too

Music information only appears on my dash when playing from a hard drive.

It’s not possible to display music there when in CarPlay, old Skoda was the same, i think it’s a real omission.....

If you just Bluetooth stream from Spotify it works fine.

Basically apple carplay and android auto are screen mirroring applications, which display on the main infotainment unit. Neither system will have any concept of your AID (and neither will your AID of carplay etc) so won't be able to display anything there. It would be nice if Google or Apple could sort this out in the future but for now, there's nowt can be done about it.
