Does any Poweramp user currently have their album art transfer over Bluetooth to a car display?

Recommended Posts

This is not a discussion about Apple Carplay or Android Auto.

I have been using Poweramp for a decade or so now. I know during that decade of use that Poweramp did transfer album covers over Bluetooth. I know a lot has changed since then, and currently I cannot get album art to appear on my car display over Bluetooth. I have tried the different AVRCP and the  Settings->Misc "Send Album Art for old API" options.

I do see a new option under Settings->Album Art "API Compatibility". I will try this one out. But I am just wondering if anyone has it working and if we can help track this down and get it working again. Especially curious because I'm on Android 14.

It's never worked for me, I always treated it as one of those device compatibility issues. I get artwork via Chromecast and via Android Auto, but not plain Bluetooth to my car headunit.

I would also be very happy if that would work - a lot/tried everything - unfortunately it doesn't work for me either.

I am driving a rental car right now and with a more modern bluetooth-enabled screen I am quite surprised at what apps send information to the screen and which ones do not. I believe it's not a difficult feature to enable, maybe esoteric. Twitch sends a display image over! It's gotta be tied to what the Media Notification display image is. Poweramp already has a display image for the Media Notification.

I want to raise some awareness for this so by the time I get another car with a screen like this it's working. I'll help any way I can.
