How do i fix what picture is displayed in a car when using Bluetooth? The files have the correct album art on my phone but then when playing a lot of them show no picture or not the same picture most of the time

Example from google

Phone would have correct album art like this
el_camino_f78ecf05195e7bd7d39ae5635b56ea6df879fc26.jpeg


But car shows this for the pic

Some cars do not support receiving album art over Bluetooth. Rather they use an online database to look up a suitable picture based on the Album, Band or even genre, etc. My current car does exactly that while my prior one always used exactly what the phone sent. No idea why.

Happens often in my Audi with Android Auto. That doesn't help you at all though.

When Gracenote pulls album art in my car, the pictures always look like some generic candid photo taken at a family picnic. :rofl:

Gracenote sucks. My car has it was well. The urban picture cracks me up.
