Diificult and dangerous, clearly not precise.How difficult or cumbersome would it be to adjust volume from the ipad app while driving?
I want to asks some questions:
a. When you connect the iPad to the Sony USB input, do you connect to USB1 or USB2, and does it make a difference in functionality between USB1 and USB2 ? USB2, no difference I know of
b. Did the USB connection from the Sony also charge the iPad? Yes
c. Each time you enter your car, did you have to reconnect the WiFi from the iPad to iPhone or it connect automatically? The Bluetooth connects automatically, but the iPad tells you to open the software and you have to swipe that notice.
d. If someone call your iPhone (or you want to making outgoing call from iPhone),
can you do it from the iPad Screen? (meaning you can leave your iPhone inside your pocket all the time)? If yes, how do you do this? Don't think you can, although you can connect the iPhone to the Sony and make calls through the app.
e. if someone text your iPhone (or you want to make outgoing text using siri through your iPhone number) can you do it from the iPad Screen? Same as above
f. When you are using Google map or Apple Map or playing music stored on your iPad , can you still accept incoming call from iPhone? Yes
Thanks for the answers.See below, although many of your questions are functionality between the iPad and iPhone, nothing to do with the Sony.
2) Voice call integration through the system.
6) Having a gazillion devices in a car with bluetooth and wifi is a nightmare.
7) When using an iPhone as a hotspot for an iPad to make phone calls it doesn't work. Well, it looks like it works, but the audio is not there. I tested this by getting both my iPhone and iPad on my home network outside my house and then the audio is there. To my chagrin, the call info is not displayed on the iPad when making outbound calls. So I can't mute, nor end the call. My assumption is the Hotspot does use Wifi, but bridged so the devices really aren't on the same WiFi network.
13) When I setup the iPad, it learned all my wireless networks, which in theory is cool, but not when some wifi networks have MAC address filtering on it, so it joins, but doesn't work.
I'm OK with this but would love to know if anyone has figured out a better way to make all this gear play nice together.
