2007 Dodge Charger SRT8: Still No Love for Android Users

by Kelly Hellwig, Managing Editor on November 16, 2015

2007 Dodge Charger SRT8

At the end of October, Senior Consumer Advice Editor Ron Montoya updated the firmware for the new Pioneer head unit in our 2007 Dodge Charger SRT8 test car. This update was reputed to offer "Expanded compatibility with Google Android Auto." Prior to that, we'd had no luck getting the stereo to recognize an Android phone.

So here's the update: "No Device."

That's what the display screen told me after I plugged in my Samsung Galaxy S5.

My phone received power, so I could charge off the cable, but there was still no sign of Android life on the head unit's display screen.

After I gave up, my daughter reached over and plugged in her iPhone 6, immediately taking full control of the stereo.

Sigh.
