Hey guys, I have been on a couple bmw/vw forums asking for help on this, and you guys are my final hope to fix this issue!
I have a droid 2, and just got my first e30 ('88 bmw 325is) and it has the Alpine IDA-X001 head unit. I searched in the back of it and it does not seem to have an aux port in the back. It only has a usb connection and i believe a blue tooth connection (not very phone savy).
I want to be able to play my droid 2 music, and pandora while charging my phone over my car speakers if possible. I have a usb to mini usb converter, and set my phone to us mass storage or something and it can play some songs. Issue here is i have 10 songs (of all are mp3 format and play through the phone speaker) but the head unit auto loads only 3 of them (rest come up under unsupported format). So it auto loads the same 3 songs and is super annoying.
I am about to bag the idea and just buy a cheap ipod which would work perfectly fine, but i really want to be able to use pandora over my car stereo!
Things i came up with but was not sure about:
- is there a different media player program that could help the unsupported formatted songs?
- Is there a usb to aux wire so i can plug into my phone and play the songs
Thanks again droiders
ps. First post so sorry if its in the wrong section
