How do I get the old version that actually worked back? 0 Recommended Answers 0 Replies 3 Upvotes

This app used to work beautifully and now it is only good for the giant map on my screen.

I'm using an LG G8 with Android version 10 and software version G820U20d and with a 2018 Nissan Maxima SR.

The problems began several months ago with sending text messages through voice; it would work first thing in the morning and then by mid-day, it lost all functionality. Then an update came out and I could no longer send text messages at all via voice. I sent multiple feedback messages through Android Auto, but received no responses. Then another update came out and I could only send feedback in the morning and by mid-day the functionality was gone, much like the texting feature. Again, another update and now it is only good for displaying the map on my 9" LCD screen in my car.

To make matters worse, my car has a "Control Knob" right behind the gear shift that allows me to scroll through and select whatever I'm trying to do, so that I don't have to focus on the screen. With the last version, I was able to move the knob to the right and it would activate the voice recognition feature. Now, a forced update to the latest version with the new interface and now even that feature is broken.

Seriously, how can I update my factory stereo to be able to use Amazon Alexa? Whereas their voice recognition is lacking, the app itself actually functions and works.

The only reasons that I'm still using this piece of junk is to thumbs up songs on Pandora and for the giant map.

GREAT JOB AT DESTROYING THE LAST REDEEMING QUALITY OF ANDROID. MY ONLY REGRET IS THAT I'M UNDER CONTRACT WITH THIS STUPID PHONE AND I CAN'T SWITCH TO "CRAPPLE."  Whereas their equipment doesn't like anything outside of their own ecosystem, their stuff actually works the way it is advertised.

And before anybody tries to discredit this post, I have done the following:

1. Uninstalled the app and reinstalled the app
2. Uninstalled the app, rebooted the phone and reinstalled the app
3. Reset to Factory Defaults, reinstalled the app

This is just a complete piece of junk now...thanks again for screwing it all up...you're officially as bad as Toyota now with their Entune system and the removal of Pandora.
