    It refuses to play the music you like, and talks about da foozball too much.

    Spotify is terrible, would rather listen to my farts.
    The slow bluetooth connect is terrible, i honestly have no idea why it takes so long to connect. However coming from a 2016 lancer to a 2014 redline you appreicte the mylink and all the features. The text to voice and being able to reply is fantastic.

    ^ Hey, what was wrong with 2SM?
    Using the Top 40 Countdown (as published in the Sunday paper & played on a Sunday night) to record one's own mix-tape ... :)

    wall to wall advertising - and I mean it even the music is some record label shoving their latest thing onto you. Traditional radio is absolute and utter garbage.

    Does anyone else have Spotify issues when playing on an Iphone via bluetooth to the car? The connection in 'spotty' constantly cutting in and out non stop. I though it may have been a crappy 3g/4g connection, but playing spotify through the phone speaker it has no issues. Im liking spotify over pandora actually, so I dont mind if pandora goes as long as the app in the car is removed and perhaps replaced with spotify

    Pandora, normal music, tunein, etc all have been working perfect over bluetooth.

    Given up on pandora - just use Spotify and iHeart Radio. Hope Holden just put in better bluetooth interface for any bluetooth apps.

    Anyone heard yet if Holden have released a mylink update to remove pandora?

    I’m assuming they won’t bother since the VF is history...

    I know of a place that can do it but it costs $250.

    Hey, since it was raised in another thread, when others here are using the steering-wheel button to step through the different input sources, does the now-defunct Pandora come-up as an option?

    Hasn’t ever done-so with our MY14, yet apparently it does for others (which made me understand a little more about why people care about having the app removed ... I’m used to having unused icons on my PC’s desktop so it doesn’t bother me :)).

    Maybe it’s because we never used it? I’ve scrolled through inputs with & without a ‘phone tethered, and also with an Android or an Apple ‘phone.

    using a vpn on your phone will allow Pandora to be used again

    I used to use it a lot. Now I just use Spotify or USB. Pandora doesn't display, or come up on my MY14 or MY17.

    Pandora won't show up as you scroll through the sources if you haven't got the corresponding Pandora app on your mobile phone. If you do (for instance if you still use it via a VPN) then it will show up. It's always been that way, even before Pandora streaming was decommissioned in Australia.

    So if your problem with the Pandora app being in MyLink is with it appearing when you scroll through sources, delete the Pandora app from your ‘phone ... ?

    I don’t have pandora on my phone yet I’ve seen pandora as a selectable source when pressing the steering wheel button.

    Great deterministic behaviour across vehicles... go figure...

    It is an ap in Mylink. It was really good when it first came out in 2013.

    Skylarking knows what it was; his problem is that it’s still an app in MyLink despite not existing as a service, and it’s still considered an input-source so that when he uses the steering-wheel butting to scroll through sources it still appears despite him never having used it & it no longer being an option.
