Default Pandora streaming via bluetooth has been improved

I'm not sure if this is the way it should have been from the beginning and mine was just acting weird or if Uconnect passed an OTA update that improved my Pandora streaming experience. Previously whenever I streamed via bluetooth from my Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD my 8.4an radio would only show artist, song & album info from my phones media players (even if I were streaming Pandora). For example, as soon as I make the selection for bluetooth, my screen would display whatever song was last played using Google Music player or Amazon MP3 player (whichever I used last). I could then go and choose to play Pandora on my phone but my radio's screen still showed the music from my music player.

Today, I decided to stream Pandora for the first time in a couple of months and was pleasantly surprised that the screen display switched to [Pandora] with the artist and song name displayed as well. It didn't display the album art, but it is at least a huge step in the right direction. Since I haven't streamed Pandora for a couple of months, it may have been due to one of the last couple of updates I installed. Regardless, it is a welcome improvement in which I will start streaming Pandora more often now.

Now if Uconnect would just enable the media apps so that I can have full control of Pandora and maybe see the album art all through the radio rather than fumbling with my much smaller phone.

Not seeing this with my iPhone4 and latest UConnect Firmware (8.4AN radio).

Many of these issues are functions of the phone or the app on the phone. I noticed yesterday that Google is releasing Android 4.3 (an update to Jellybean) to Nexus devices - other Androids will follow once the carriers/manufacturers figure out what they want to do. One of the updates is to support Bluetooth AVRCP 1.3 which will allow for song title display to car radios via Bluetooth. Don't think it will allow voice control though.
