Ian, would you kindly guide on when you expect to develop a Google Cast Google Cast (pls click) interface for the AA?

I am one of the original kickstarters, and my idea behind the purchase was that I would use this unit with Pandora. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to do any of that. I love the power, and flexibility it offers, but for me, so far, this is still a promise of things to come vs. what I have been able to enjoy over the last year.

I do not wish to root the phone and use BubbleUPNP, given additional security risks to which my phone is exposed.

Please guide and help.

We will have Bluetooth available before Chromecast but Bluetooth will work for your Android device. We will be aptX ready if your device is capable of it.

Thanks Ian. Rough ETA? I'm happy to be a beta tester, pls let me know. I have an APTX HD enabled mobile phone (LG v20), so should be able to test it out.

Ian, quick followup. Is the intent to support AptX HD on the AxiomAir, or just AptX?

And on a related note, I recently bought a used Axiom Air!

Now that i'm up on Imgur, i might post some pics.
Tested out a little bit but it is going to be a family present at Christmas so i've got to keep it hidden.
Hooked up my Google Nexus (running Android 4.x, don't recall which version offhand) with the Air app and it seems buggy. Although i didn't get as far as connecting it to any music on my home system, it was setup on my wifi and i plugged a usb stick into it for testing.
The app kept going into a 'cannot find device' mode, but music kept playing and when i closed the app and opened it again, i could see the usb and queue, etc.

I'm going to test out the same conditions with the iPhone and iPad to see if it does the same.

This sounds like you are losing the connection to your router. If the WiFi antenna plugged into one of the USB ports on the front of the AxiomAir is black you could try getting one of the long range ones. The long range ones are white http://www.axiomaudio.com/edimax-wireless-mini-usb-adapter .

Once the music has started playing from an AxiomAir using a USB stick it will continue to play no matter the WiFi connection. If you e-mail us your serial number we can tell you what version you have. You should also Check Updates in the AxiomAir interface.

I will grab one of your long distance USB devices today .
I have the small black USB in my Axiom Air .Unit # 47
The connection has been dropping out whenever I use it even with my phone sitting on top of the AA .

Your order # is: 100059121.

I'll have to test this out once the kids aren't around. The music did indeed keep playing but i found it odd that if i just closed out the app and restarted the app i could see the queue again. If i kept losing the wifi, i would have thought it would not have come back (the queue that is).

I'll check on the serial number later as well. To keep the unit hidden, it's in its box under my desk so i'll dig it out later. I did however check for version updates and the app said everything was up to date; unless there is some other way to update the Air and not just the app.
