---------Original Thread---------
I recently picked up an Appradio 2 from Pioneer. The premise is good but the excecution is poor IMO.

The app seems overly complicated and quite frankly pisses me off the more i use it.

Now what i would like to know is if the app can be modified to just offer control of the MHL mirror. That would be ideal for me. At points within the app it allows you to control the screen via the touch screen on the appradio 2. Then at certain places it doesn't allow any touch or only touch portions of the screen.

I have very minimal knowledge of programming for android so i cannot tackle it myself. Im also willing to start a bounty for this as well if someone shows some interest.

Here is the apk: Link

I just got one of these earlier today. I was very excited at the "Android" support. I haven't installed it yet (buying a washer and dryer takes forever!), but I hope to do it tomorrow.

Did you do your install or did you have somebody do it for you?

Also, have you messed with navigation through phone at all? What cables does it need? I know it needs an MHL for my SGS2, but where can I find the cable that plugs into the back of the unit?

Its a simple straight forward install. The cable in the back is a full size HDMI that comes out of the mhl adapter.

Gotcha. I need to pick one up for my sgs2.

Where did you put your nav antenna and your microphone?

The best place for you will be wildly different but I put my mic in the factory VW location and the GPS inside the dash

So I was really excited about getting this, but it sounds like everyone that's gotten it has been disappointed. I'm interested in whether anyone really likes it.

Mine ended up being broken (non-working bluetooth).

Returned it and got a dnx7180 with nav and good ****.

As was i and to be honest i am sort of disappointed. However, the potential is there for this unit. I believe with the right modes to the app and/or unit it will be GREAT!

The system is similar as the MIMICS system. It mirrors the display of the phone via MHL and uses bluetooth to communicate screen touches. If the app can be modded so that it allows you to navigate to more than just the appradio app then it would be perfect.

Someone that knows what they are doing should be able to mod the app accordingly and unlock the true potential of this device.

I'm sure they will hear the complaints and make Appradio 3 or 4 better. I will definitely give it another try then. The lack of compatible android apps is disappointing.

The 'appradio2' from pioneer is just starting and is getting more and more android fans every day.
Altho this is a device with great potential, the user experience is indeed a little dissapointing.

Where should I begin?
Well, first the SPH-DA100 officially only supports android 3.2 and not even all phones running it too (a list of compatible devices is @ the Pioneer website)

I successfully connected my Galaxy Nexus i9250 (running ICS 4.0.4 since this weekend) and it works!

The perfect picture for this device should be when you can control your whole phone from the screen of the appradio. For now, only approved apps can be controlled.

I follow MKVFTW when he says that someone who knows what he's doing should rewrite the apk. but for now we can only wait for Pioneer to make another version.

I do not doubt that Pioneer will wait for an appradio 3 or 4 to make things better
The current hardware can handle it.

Or does everyone here buys a new phone when the next android version comes out???

I managed to get a custom background wallpaper on the device, that is a start isn't it?

Let's keep going where our apps take us !!

Cheers!
