You might not believe it, but the spring is already in full swing with flowers blooming, birds singing, the spring break craziness, and the amazing road trips. But what will be the road trip without your favorite tunes?

This is the reason for us to work hard to bring you the opportunity to enjoy your music while driving. Let's jump into our April news!
Android Auto is coming soon to VLine
We are almost done on integrating Android Auto into VLine Infotainment System . The connection will work through USB cable.

Note that your factory phone system will be used for phone calls while in Android Auto. Everything else is done directly through Android Auto interface: Music apps, Messaging apps, Google Maps and Waze. Just plug your Android phone and enjoy your very new infotainment system. 

Stay tuned for future announcements!
Wirelinq and Android 9.0 Update
Since the release of Android 9.0 USB audio streaming is no longer supported feature by Google . Therefore it is now not possible to play the music via Wirelinq cable using external apps (not Dashlinq plugins).

However Dashlinq music plugins keep working. The list of plugins include Spotify, Web Radio, Pandora, Google Music and Local (stored on the phone or MicroSD card) Music. We are actively working on bringing more plugins to Dashlinq, including Podcasts. Watch demo video and stay tuned for the announcements!

The same limitation affects GROM-MST4 and GROM-USB3 car kits, when they are being used with Android phones with 9.0 Android via USB.
