Thanks Dan. Unfortunately I prefer some of the widgets on the stock launcher which the other launchers don't let you use for some reason.
New version of Drive Link released - 1.1.024 (28-Nov-2012).
Link to new Drive Link apk for those without access to Samsung App store - https://www.dropbox.com/s/66jls0b7yxghusf/app.scm-2.apk
Like the idea of Drivelink, but even though it works on my Sony 701, it eats up the battery on my phone. Even with my screen set at the most dim setting the usb charge rate cant quiet keep up with the draw.
If I use the power button to put the screen to sleep, it stops updating the screen on the radio, or shows the home screen on the modified version of DriveLink.
Can anyone give brief as to what does this do. I have been reading several posting and most of them can not be understood by noob like me.
I have read most here.. http://www.pocket-lint.com/news/47109/samsung-galaxy-s-iii-gets-drive-link-app
Non-root: Go into Settings and Enable "Install from Unknown sources" Install the APK and run it. Plug into your head unit and pray. This method has worked for some (including myself) and not for others. It will give you the standard Drivelink app and no custom code by us, you need root for that. Rooted users: Download the TMServer zip to your Phone Reboot into recovery and install (Like a ROM) No need to wipe anything, you're just replacing a system APK which is why you need root. Install the Drivelink APK after enabling Unknown sources. Run the Drivelink app and plug your phone into the head unit, After accepting prompts you should see the drive link app.
- CONFIRMED THIS IS FIXED IN LATEST APP.
[Drive Link team] In Jelly Bean, screen update is not supported when screen is turned off, so we determined not to turn off screen. It is temporary solution. To solve this issue, we need change of android platform. Unfortunately, current android platform can't support it.
- THIS NOW APPEARS TO BE FIXED IN LATEST APP.[Drive Link team] In mirrorlink mode(this means that smart phone is connected to head unit), whenever smart phone is connected to head unit, volume is setted as 50%. We will change volume policy. First time volume is setted as 50%, from next time volume is setted as previous value. This change will be included in next binary release.
