At the moment, the BlueZ version used is 4.101.

This version has support for at least AVRCP 1.3: http://git.kernel.org/cgit/bluetooth/bluez.git/tree/audio?id=4.101

What is missing at the moment is support for it in the Media Player app (i.e. the basic support in the middleware is there, but the apps are not making use of it yet).

I've researched the AVRCP 1.3 support in BlueZ a few months ago for the N9: AVRCP 1.3 on the N9 (N9 has BlueZ 4.91, which doesn't have the AVRCP changes that landed in 4.97).

AVRCP 1.0 (play, pause, previous, next) isn't fully integrated in the Media Player app. Pausing audio works, but isn't fully integrated. Previous/Next doesn't seem to work with media player. I'll investigate to see what's up with that.

Does this deserve the roadmap tag?

doesn't avrpc implemented by using mpris? this would make native profile support redundant?

Will there be support for AVRCP 1.3 in Media Player app? It would be nice add in car use.

At least the basic 1.0 version is supported because media keys on bluetooth headphones work, but it seems like 1.3 or newer aren't supported because media info isn't sent. Maybe in future...
