W8400NEX - can't skip songs in Apple Carplay via steering wheel

Post by Serenity23 » Mon Dec 24, 2018 12:05 am

It works fine elsewhere, but not in Apple CarPlay. My current setting for UP/DOWN is Seek + / Seek -. I did see another forum post that suggested that the "SCAN" will allow me skip tracks, but that's not available. Since it's a pain to reflash each time, I'm hoping someone has a solution.

Car: 2013 Toyota Venza w/ JBL Audio (TO1; technically with factory Nav, but TO2 doesn't work on my car for some reason).

This is likely to be a radio firmware issue. The maestro doesn't know what source you're in; it simply sends the seek up/down command when you press the button on the steering wheel. If the radio responds differently in just one source, that is because that's how the radio was programmed to work.
