Poweramp doesn't lett car browse through music. Stock app does.


Recommended Posts

Hi guys. I purchased Poweramp a while ago.


Just got a new 2016 Scion FR-S.

The head unit is a Pioneer model AVH-2558. Toyota part PT546-00160.

Phones used are Note 4 and S4 Active.


So I noticed that if I use the stock Android music app, a BROWSE button appears on the head unit screen and it allows me to browse music on my phone by track, artist, and album.


If I use Poweramp to do the same, the BROWSE button doesn't appear on the head unit and it simply plays whatever songs I choose from the phone itself.


Another issue I have is that the song won't display the album art I have emedded in each song, but rather pulls a group photo from somewhere. I assume this is Gracenotes (which the head unit uses) grabbing the group photo from somewhere and using that instead (which I hate).

That issue occurs with the stock app as well so I don't think it has anything to do with Poweramp.


Does anyone know why the car unit won't let me browse when using Poweramp? Thanks for any info!


Here's a link to the audio unit: http://www.scion.com/audio/
