Nokia squashes more bugs in latest Accessories update

Nokia Accessories

Nokia has pushed an update for its Accessories app. Available exclusively to Lumia Windows Phone hardware, the app enables consumers to take full advantage of connected hardware, be it a wireless charging cradle or speaker. The app will launch through NFC and will offer unique functionality and features depending on what's connected.

We last looked at Accessories when the Finnish manufacturer updated the app with support for the new wireless charger for vehicles. Today we're only looking at bug fixes, so if you've been experiencing issues, this is a welcomed update.

You can check for the Accessories update on the Windows Phone Store (only on Lumia hardware). Thanks, Pyry, for the tip!

It would be nice if Nokia announced when we can expect the car holder (CR-200) in the U.S.

TechyMexican says:

we can take out a loan and buy them on eBay for $100 :P

Pappa Ed says:

You can order through Amazon. Ships from England. Shipping takes about 2 weeks. Ordered mine Monday.

Was hoping to avoid the whole international shipping ordeal, but it looks as though I may have to suck it up.

Sifilone says:

does anyone know if we can make this app start with any NFC tag or it requires the cradle only?

andrewkeith5 says:

It doesn't do anything that special, for nfc tags Nokia NFC writer can do the same stuff.

I've already done it. Use NFC interactor and write a Nokia launcher tag with CR-200 on the tag. I use it in my car currently.

Lol Nokia must make a new counter then i am set for life im never going to get data sense xD

jasqid says:

I have the black jbl/nokia speaker I use with my 8x. How can I tell if it has an update?

dreonedon says:

Update for that save some money your next phone should be a nokia

pankaj981 says:

Works with Nokias only

No, the speakers for most Bluetooth phones.

pankaj981 says:

The accessories app doesn't, the speaker does

Ah, I was confused in what you were saying.

Wish MS tried this hard

adrian1338 says:

yes - you really believe nokia is not working together with microsoft on EVERYTHING.

Yes , in fact do believe Nokia is doing all it can to improve the platform. And that includes working very closely with MS.

CRASHFIRE says:

Wish they would fix the Bluetooth issues. It never works right when trying to stream music in my car. And it is a Ford with Sync by Microsoft. My GS3 worked perfectly. My Lumia 920 doesn't. Ugh...

tribexx says:

I agree 100%. When the "Zune Insider" podcast was around, they spoke of going in and out of their car and music continuing automatically. I have a Ford with Sync and that never happened with the trophy, nor 928.

rybob1 says:

This is by far my most frustrating issue with WP for me.  I adopted WP in Nov 2010, and have been loyal to MSFT's phone efforts, dating back to at least 2005.  My patience for such a basic feature is running thin.  If Apple and Google can get it figured out, why can't Microsoft?  Just once I'd like to have my phone remember where I left off in an audiobook, or not have to restart my phone because I can't get it to connect to my car radio.
Since 2010, I've purchased a Samsung Focus, Lumia 900 and most recently a 920.  I will not be purchasing another Windows phone until I can verify Microsoft has figured this out.  In my mind they have until the GD3 update to figure this out, or otherwise I'll be researching a switch to another platform.  It's a shame, I have 3 apps I've published in the marketplace, and I'd like to remain invested in the platform.  

I'm in the same boat as you...there are soo many small and simple things that are ignored on the Windows Phone platform that are currently present in other OS', that if Microsoft doesn't get the ball rolling by the GDR3 update...I'm jumping ship to Android. I've been voicing my opinion to Microsoft about this for far too long...and the least they could do is acknowledge the fact that I'm voicing an opinion as a consumer.

Had that problem with my first 920 it got stuck in reboot and now my new 920 is seamless on Bluetooth.

danielgray says:

Bluetooth doesn't work properly on my Nissan Xtrail, cannot upload any contacts to the car. I can only call the last caller. It is annoying.. Bug fixes should be deployed quicker.. And acknowledged

hgodsgarn says:

Jabra Bluetooth has glitches to phone crashes when disconnected

jhoff80 says:

Does the car dock app add support for setting built-in apps as a shortcut yet?  It's a shame to not be able to set Xbox Music for that.

This update fixed the issue with the CR-200 app that didn't show the weather

blackfire says:

Is that screen in the article available for non-charging holders? Available as an app or something? It would be nice to have that "car mode" available.

davidblouin says:

Still can't open the app on my 810.

OldMillXxX says:

I don't like that you have to accept the agreement each time the app launches from the DT-910.  One agreement should be enough and then it should just launch each time I set it in there, if I choose to have it do that.  Having to touch the bottom of the charging stand with the top of the phone seems to be a little strange.

lancguy says:

I hope that they fix the problem that I have with my jbl speaker where it will turn on the speaker but won't pair on the phone. End up having to manually pair it in settings which defeats the purpose of NFC.
