There are many different ways of connecting your device to your car. The best method will depend on the device and car that you are using. Once connected, you may be able to control the volume and music playback using your car stereo system.
- USB: Connect a USB cable to your device, then connect the other end of the cable to your car.
- Audio cable / AUX: Connect an audio cable to the headphone jack on your device, then connect the other end of the cable to your car stereo. On newer devices you may need to use a USB-C adaptor.
- Bluetooth: Turn on Bluetooth on your device and car. Refer to the user guide for your vehicle for more information. Open the Bluetooth settings on your device and tap the Bluetooth system of your car. If prompted, enter the pairing code displayed on your phone to complete the connection. Find out more about pairing a Bluetooth device.
- Cassette player: If your car has a cassette player, you can use a cassette adapter to connect. Insert the cassette adapter into the cassette slot on the stereo, then connect the other end to the headphone jack on your device. On newer devices you may need to use a USB-C adaptor. Please note: cassette adapters are sold separately.
Once connected, change the audio source on your stereo to your specific connection method. You will be able to control the sound coming from your device through the stereo but most other features, such as navigation and calling will have to be controlled through your device. If you've set up a voice assistant like Bixby you will be able to control your device hands-free.
