I agree 100% and am in the same boat, except I have not checked out TechDirt.
Ever heard of Microsoft?
But the fucking supplied dongle is worthless since it doesn't have a lightning passthrough so I can charge my phone.
Apparently if I want the new iPhone I'll need the courage to let my battery drain while I listen through headphones.
Nobody is forcing me, of course. But I certainly have the right to express my disappointment with my current phone's successor.
Yes, that would be the ultimate scenario.
Precisely. That's why I stay wired.
So if I get the new iPhone, I have to choose between watching Netlfix or charging my phone.....at least until another dongle comes out that lets me do both. But....it's still bullshit that this "upgrade" causes me to have to carry around extra parts.
I've found that "just driving" is far more dangerous. By not being subdued by TV, I haven't been locked up for road-rage incidents.
I just want to watch Netflix while I drive.
Thanks for this info. I always blamed bluetooth. It's true, all my cars have been Acuras and Hondas.
My 2016 Acura ILX has the same annoying lag as every other vehicle I've ever used.
I knew about the rumors, but the fucking vacuum ate my previous pair. I had no choice.
I wasn't referring to a bluetooth headset. Any of the 5-6 vehicles I've paired my phone to have this "feature".
There is simply a delay, or lack of sync, between device and speakers. So it's utterly useless for watching video of any kind.
