No problem, I think it will help but adding an amp would be best. Good luck.

Got contact pictures to work.

With some trial and error I was able to get my contact pictures to show up. To accomplish this I had to create new contacts for each of the favorites I wanted without email addresses. What I found out was when there is an email address associated to the contact in my phone the favorites contact on the head unit cannot display the picture. I was able to prove this by adding an email address to one favorite which made the picture disappear from the head unit. Once I took the email away it came back. Weird problem, I hope they eventually provide a fix for this.

P.S., be mindful of joined contacts in your phone if you try this. My phone automatically joined the new contacts at first since the name and number matched.

I have a quick question for anyone that has a 2014 radio. Is it possible to fast forward a song that's playing off a CD? Or is that something only older radios could do?
Thank you

I think i'd rather just not have pictures show up on my radio than have double inputs for every contact. Doesn't sound worth it to me. To each their own though.

I notice when I'm driving not all my saved stations show, once I'm at a complete stop I can scroll through all of them so annoying especially on the frwy

I like the 3 panel display option allowing quick access to contact favorites, weather and audio.

Guess they've done some pretty big changes to the 2014 radios. I'm kind of jealous. My 2012 is pretty basic.

I think the updates come from the Weather Channel. I traveled from Colo to GA, and back. Sometime I was in rural areas and there was no update for that area, as the last info was from the previous metro area. Personally I hate the weather app with a passion. When I fire up the truck I can readings from Denver to Pueblo, its like I have no idea what the local weather is until I start driving and the channel finally gets my location right.
Had the system replaced because the old radio would lock or freeze up. The new radio actually seems to have a couple more options. I dont have that JBL version, and the new one doesnt either. Maybe there were a few minor changes. The map data was not in the new radio, had to go back to the dealer and ask "WTF", they ordered a new SD card and will load when it arrives.

Android 4.4.2 on my Note 2 allowed my music on Spotify on my phone to show what's playing on my Entune in the truck. Finally!

Just chipping in my findings

'14 DCSB OR, Entune Plus, Navi (non jbl)

Using a Galaxy S3, cyanogenmod 11 and connecting through Bluetooth...

Works: Pandora, PowerAMP, Stock audio player (BT conntects, auto plays, kinda annoying, but meh). Call audio is good, contacts sync, phone history. Apps use data over BT fine.

Not working: New email/text notification/display.

Gripes: When using aux, too bad it doesn't pull Metadata for gracenotes via BT.

If anyone would like me to test/check something, let me know. I have several 'retired' android devices for testing purposes.

Sorry for the delay in my response, at the moment TWs email notifications are not working. I have a 2014 Entune Audio Plus model 57090. In order to do this you would choose Settings>Home Screen>Three Panel. On that page you will have the choice to set two or three panel, then you have the choice of what you want to display on each panel. As for the weather, it is provided over the HD radio signal. That is why it is not always available or provides the exact location your in. I have noticed it providing a neighboring towns weather so I just go to Apps>Weather where I can choose 1. Current Weather 2. Recently checked locations 3. National cities 4. Other local cities. Good luck.

I'm using iPhone but should be same idea. To get messaging to work I had to go into settings and turn on mms messaging. Works fine now but I just prefer to look at my phone( while not driving of course) !

Thank you
In my 2014 Entune Audio Plus I can fast forward a song from a CD by holding the seek> button. <track button provides the ability to rewind. I can also do this from the steering wheel by using the left and right directions of the toggle. Up and down of the toggle provide next and previous tracks.

This does work as long as you have Bluetooth audio selected as your source.
