In the market, there are things that are made for iPod and works with iPhone. Users a probably wondering, how can I use my device in my car? Well chances are, you’ve already got the technology for it.
I’m Antoine Goodwin and I’m going to show you three different ways to use your android phone with your car stereo. Now the first way is using the analog audio input. So what you basically need to do is connect the patch cable to your car into the headphone jack and that will allow you to get an analog audio signal into the stereo. The advantages of this way is that it’s the easiest way of doing. There’s just one cable and you plug it up. But the disadvantages are that because you’re using analog audio, it may not be the best sound quality, plus, now you got two different volumes to contend with, the one on your phone and the one on the dashboard.
That brings us to our second way and that’s going to be Bluetooth audio streaming. The way you do this usually varies from car to car, but the steps usually begin with initiating the pairing procedure on your car’s stereo. Once you’ve done that, you’re going to want to go into your android’s menu, select the Bluetooth and make sure it’s turned on. Then in the Bluetooth settings, find your car stereo and then initiate the pairing process. It’s probably going to ask you for a pin, chances are it’s going to be 0000. And once you’ve entered that, your droid will be paired with the car stereo for audio streaming.
Now, the advantages of doing it this way is that Bluetooth pairing is usually a one-shot deal and every subsequent time you jump in your car, the pairing should recur automatically. The disadvantages though is that Bluetooth as a wireless protocol usually is a big battery drain so you’re going to want to plug into some sort of a power adaptor which kind of defeats the purpose of going wireless in the first place.
Now, the third way to use your android phone with your car stereo is connecting via USB. You’re going to want to make sure your car has a USB port and supports USB mass storage devices. Simply take the micro USB cable that came with your android phone and connect your phone to the USB port. In the top corner of your phone, you’ll notice a little USB icon. Pull down your notification bar and hit the USB button. It’s going to ask you if you want to mount your device so go ahead and hit mount. Once it’s done that, your car should recognize your android phone as a USB mass storage device.
The advantages of doing it this way is that you gain access to your music using your car stereo’s controls so you can keep your eyes on the road. And if you have a system like Ford Synch, then you can also use voice command and what now. The disadvantages are that because it’s reading basically off of your device, you can’t use streaming services like Pandora. Or if you’re using navigation, you don’t get your voice command through your system.
Now, there is a fourth way and that’s a combination of any of the three modes that we’ve discussed before. The advantages of doing this is that you can jump back and forth between for example, Bluetooth and USB to take advantage of the strengths of those two different modes with none of the weaknesses.
So that’s been three different ways to use your android with your car stereo. I’m Antoine Goodwin, and that’s how it’s done.
