Car Toys offers solutions to help you seamlessly connect your Android Smartphone to your vehicle!

Good: Audio patch cable (auxiliary cable)

The easiest of all connections, simply take a 3.5mm audio patch cable (auxiliary cable) and plug one end into the headphone jack on your Android Smartphone and the other end into your car stereo's auxiliary input.  This connection is simple.  You will now be able to listen to the music stored on your Android smartphone through your car stereo speakers, but you control access to your music on your phone display.

 

Better: Bluetooth audio streaming

If your car stereo deck supports Bluetooth audio (A2DP), you can connect your Android phone to your car stereo wirelessly. Start by pairing your stereo with your phone through Bluetooth settings on both. Follow the prompts on both devices to complete the pairing. If you’re asked for a PIN, 0000 usually does the trick. You’ll only have to pair your devices once, and you should be able to use both your audio streaming and hands-free calling services. You’ll have some dash-board control, but no song title or album art in the display. Keep any eye on your battery, Bluetooth streaming tends to eat up the power. Having a phone car charger on hand while streaming bluetooth audiois always a great way to keep your battery full.

 

If the stereo deck doesn’t support Bluetooth audio streaming, all is not lost. You can attach a Bluetooth accessory to an aux input cable that does.

Best: USB Connection

Connecting your Android Smartphone to your car stereo via USB cable (USB to port cable) means an all-digital pathway for your tunes and the best possible sound quality access and control. Start by locating your car stereo’s USB (or have your Car Toys install expert find it) and plug in the mini-USB sync cable that came with your phone. Plug the other end into your phone’s USB port then pull down the USB icon that will appear in your notification bar. Follow the prompts to mount your SD card, and you should be good to go. You might have to select USB as a source on your stereo, if your deck hasn’t already done so. You’ll have full dash-board control and your USB connection also charges your phone.
