Next Category using Bluetooth controls

I am using PA in a 2022 Acura TLX connecting over Bluetooth. The audio files are organized in folders. How do I navigate the folders? Double, triple, or long pressing the control on the steering wheel don't do it - I can only fast forward or change tracks...

Double-tap might do it (try different gap timings) but it depends on how your headunit reacts to that. Unfortunately it's rarely an exact science. Also try using Android Auto if your headunit supports that (I would assume that audio equipment fitted to a 2022 car should do).

Check PA Settings=>Headset/Bluetooth=>Last Processed Commands to see what button events PA is being sent.

For what it's worth, my five year old Hyundai head-unit connects well using Android Auto, and single presses oh the steering wheel buttons change tracks, long-presses engage FFwd/Rewind, and double-press changes category (folder).

To give you an idea of what you are looking for, here is my log for various steering wheel button sequences in my Hyundai, which is connected to my Samsung Galaxy A70 via Android Auto.

The 'KEYCODE_MEDIA_xxxx' lines indicate when a button has been pressed (shown as ACTION_DOWN) and when it has been released (shown as ACTION_UP). The 'PlayerService' lines show how Poweramp has interpreted the button events that it received:

 

Press onscreen 'Play' button on headunit (also triggered when you select that source via the steering wheel's selector button):

KEYCODE_MEDIA_PLAY ACTION_UP A2dpOn isAvrcp flags=0x4 playerState=2
==================
