HTC and Sony devices running Android 5.0 (Lollipop)
HTC and Samsung devices running Android 6.0 (Marshmallow)
Android 7.0 limited support. May not work yet.
- The Ultimate can be fine tuned at home as it has switches inside. The Ultimate Connect has pre-set configurations and does NOT allow further fine tuning.

This document will show pictures of the two plug versions and if your vehicle uses the unsupported plug then we can convert the order into a normal Ultimate. The Ultimate is always supported.
