Bluetooth Music Problem (Lockscreen)
Hey, Android Forums.
Recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and have had a few problems with it. Most of which I have been able to find some type of workaround (for example I downloaded the VLC player app to play my music since the default player will not recognise any of the songs I have saved on my SD Card).
The latest problem has me stumped, though:
When connecting my device to my car stereo (Ford Fiesta Zetec) the music will play fine, and I can toggle between tracks using the cars controls on my dashboard and/or steering wheel.
The problem arises whenver a few minutes pass and the phone naturally going to a lockscreen. This seems to disallow any remote access to the phone from the cars' controls.
In effect, once the song has been playing for more than a minute I am suddenly unable to operate basic commands, like skipping forward or rewinding a track without physically pulling the car over and making the selection on my phone's handset. Then a minute later, the problem reoccurs.
I can't imagine a phone as advanced as the Note 3 cannot do this, since my old Blackberry Bold was able to without issue. So I'm hoping some of you more experienced Android users could maybe offer some help?
