I have just upgraded from my old Z3+ to the new XZ Premium and was wondering what happened to the ANT+ capability. I used my z3+ to record all my cycling and running activity using the Garmin ant+ sensors and only found out that my new phone doesn't have this facility when I went to register my ant+ sensors with the phone.
Does anyone know firstly why the Sony developers in their infinte wisdom removed this facility from the X series phones and is there a work around or am I going to have to bite the bullit and go and buy a Garmin Edge or equivalent at over £200.

I personally use Bitdefender as my Antivirus... The "anti-theft" feature is pretty adavanced.
Of course, there is a web interface (accessible from anywhere on the web) from which you can manage/scan/locate/lock/ring/wipe all your devices on which Bitdefender is running. but there is more...
For instance you can:
- SMS Control: On the Android client, you can set up a "trusted" mobile numbers. Any SMS with specific command + a pin code that your phone receives from that specific number will act on the phone). for instance, you can send command such as LOCATE (send a SMS back with google map coordonates of the phone location), SCREAM, LOCK, WIPE, CALLME (establish a silent call between the two mobile so that you can secretly listen-in on what is going on with your device). If the Sim card is also replace in your phone, your trusted mobile number will receive a SMS with the details of the new sim card inserted in your device.
- Snap a picture with the front camera if there are too many failed unlock attempt.
You can also locks sensitive apps individually (requiring a pin code or fingerprint to open) and automatically not apply the lock when connected to a trusted Wifi (at home for instance).

I'd appreciate if anyone can advise ... I like to use a device as a music source in conjunction with a PC and to have it connected by USB for file transfer and charging.
While 'docked' in this way I'd like the ability to keep the XZ P screen lit, but cannot see an option to extend the Sleep time-out beyond the 30 mins ( Settings | Display | Sleep ).
Does anyone know of a way to achieve this please ?
..... and of course, inspiration strikes 30 secs after posting....
It's under Developer Options | Stay Awake (Screen will never sleep while charging - Toggle button)
(Via Settings | About Phone; press seven times to activate Developer Options if not already done so)
Hope perhaps will be of use to someone else
Keep tapping the build number in settongs>about phone to enable developer options and your setting will be in there.

How do I enable bluetooth dual audio? It's part of the Bluetooth 5 spec, which the XZ Premium has. The samsung galaxy s8 has it. When I try to connect a second media device, it always disconnects the first one. I've tried with two BT speakers and my Sony BT Alarm clock.

A (hopefully quick!) question for the Sony Reps and wider community...
The USB-C spec should incorporate the capability to supply both Analogue and Digital Audio, together with a Power Charging Bypass function.
I have so far tried the following USB-C adapters for both simple USB-C to 3.5mm audio and composite charging bypass without success:
DISDIM 2 in 1 Type C to 3.5mm Audio Headphone Jack Adapter with Charger
Motorola Moto Z Connector Type C to 3.5mm Headphone Stereo Adapter Connector
None of these audio adapters seem to be recognised by the phone, either natively or by trying to force a connection using SoundAbout Pro.
Is anyone please able to advise any steps needed to enable or whether such capability has been successfully achieved with the XZ P ?

A further, related query for the Sony Reps and also wider community:
On the Z5 P, also running Android N, there was an entry in Settings:
Settings | Device Connection | USB Connectivity
Enabling a 'manual' search and select for any attached USB device and I think ability to select from several and choose associated behaviours. On the XZ P, this seems to have been removed and there are just 'drop-down' notifications if you deliberately look for them (not particularly helpful/satisfactory).
Can anyone give a definitive answer as to the correct / intended behaviour on the XZ P and what (if any) ability is there for manual selection equivalent to the 'old' implementation ?
