Does it show anything when connected via USB? It was my understanding that the latest MFT fixed issues like this. Sorry to hear it doesn't I guess reach out to Jaclyn about it.

My phone upgraded to Jelly Bean (4.1) That's all it shows whenever I play anything via BT Audio. USB connection gives me nothing (It doesn't accept the device) Maybe I have to do something on the phone settings to get it to play music that way. Otherwise it's BT or an Aux cable. The BT controls on the display work to change tracks but that's it.

My iPhone works the same way.

I'm sorry to hear this about the Razr Maxx. It could be just your phone. MFT is just so unpredictable on different devices

By the way, I don't know how it is with your ST3 but my Ti doesn't have an aux. It only has USB (2), SD (1) and RCA (1) inside the center console.

Aux works if you have a rca to 3.5mm cable

Apparently not all phones support the Bluetooth profile with streaming metadata, so that's yet another variable. Apparently you need "AVRCP 1.3". Version 1.4 to allow browsing. My phone has only 1.0 for instance. I've not yet felt compelled to root it so I can add that capability.

(Don't forget there's variable and buggy software on both ends of that connection. Not all problems may be MFT's fault.)
