    I have a fairly basic stereo unit in my CR-V. It has the basics - CD player, BT connection, FM and Digital radio. The display unit is set in the top of the dash. There is a USB connector which allows an iPod to be connected.

    I have a minor issue which is that artist and track details from my phone are not displayed. I use a Samsung S5. My daughter has an HTC One X and when using it the artist and track details are displayed on the car stereo display. I presume that issue lies with Samsung's software however I was wondering if the stereo unit has the most up to date software.

    How would I check and how would get it updated?

    Additionally, if I connect a USB multi-port to the car USB connector would there be enough power to charge more than one device?

    I've been meaning to look into this too. My wife's nissan note had the same issue with my Samsung so I tried a different player and all the track info then came up. I'll try some music players tomorrow and see what happens.

    This may or may not be related, but I can't pair my (work) Samsung S5 to the Bluetooth. All other makes of 'phone (have tried iPhone and Nokia Windows 'phone) work without issue.

    I know people with other makes - Mercedes especially - who have similar issues with the S5.

    Weird...

    @Navrig when using the HTC on the CR-V. Does the album art come up as well?

    The Americans have the Pandora app witch is the same as lastfm which shows everything including artwork on the iMID. I've enabled it but I don't get an option in the source menu to select it. Ill try my wife's blackberry and see works.

    Coming back to this a bit late. @Racy Jace the artwork didn't come up.

    I've now upgraded to an S7 and again the track details do not display on the head unit screen.

    I've just returned a hire car - Fiat 500large - and it displayed track details including the album details. Previously I hired a Vauxhall and again the tracks were displayed even though the display was not really a screen more of a feew lines of display.

    Samsung has a Driving app but it didn't interface with Google Play Music plus I must the phone set to log me out after a period of inactivity due to company email policy.

    In USA they get Bluetooth firmware updates on their CR-V, unlike Europeans CR-V which cannot be updated though the Bluetooth part no is made by the same company and I believe it is the same part. Following their procedure it cannot be updated, at least for the pre facelift it can not.

    Well my note 4 is now playing up and it looks like I'll have to join the apple brigade! I could never get Pandora to work with my car so I gave up. My stereo is dated compared to others but after changing the speakers it does sound quite nice to be fair.
