For those of you using a jailbroken iPhone 4/4S this is great news. Controlling apps that aren't AppRadio compatible using the AppRadio's touch interface sounds like a remote possibility. But developer Mike DeCaro has done tremendous work in that regard with his jailbreak tweak, AppRadio Extensions. The tweak is getting upgraded to version 2.0 soon but a new teaser video and a beta download has been made available at Avic411. Here's the video and more details.
As mentioned on the Avic411 forum, this is a beta only and still has a few bugs. A final release may well be available in the coming few weeks. As you will see in the video below, Mike is using the NAVIGON app which isn't AppRadio compatible and controlling it from his AppRadio. The possibilities that this tweak opens up are endless. Ultimately if this all leads to us being able to control our iPhones fully from the AppRadio it would be great. But obviously this isn't going to be easy to program. Hence the work put in my Mike is absolutely commendable.
Read the full details about the tweak and how to install it on your jailbroken device at AVIC411.com. More information will be available when the final version is released.
From all of us AppRadio users, thanks for your time and efforts, Mike.
