    High I have car stereo that is a Phase Linear BT1611i that is equipped with a USB port for reading flash drives for music. When i connect my droid to it, the radio recognizes that a device has been connected to it, but the droid doen't recongize that it has been connect to the the stereo so it never mounts...it doesn't even go into charge mode. Is it not possible to stream music from the droid to a car stereo through USB?

    I have not heard of anyone being able to mount the usb drive to a car stereo.

    I have done it with my Sony MEX-BT5700U. I was able to play my music and even see the non-music files on the stereo's browser. Are you getting the prompt to mount on the phone? It might be that you need an iphone capable stereo that allows reading of external devices?

    No the phone completely ignores the stereo. I never get the option to mount. My stereo is iphone compatable though, it has an iphone cable and aux jack specifically for iphones. Maybe there is an adapter I can get that will allow me to use the droid with the iphone cable?

    car stereo

    Works great with my Kenwood.? Charges, plays and even the remote works. The only thing with the Kenwood is it will only read two directory layers so I. Had to reorganize my files.

    Sorry to get off topic about your issue, but I was wondering how you liked the bluetooth functions of the sony unit you have. Does everything work like it is supposed to as far as music streaming with say pandora or the regular mp3 player? Does it show track info, caller names? I appreciate any answers greatly because it seems to be hard to find info.:)

    It works well for the most part. No track info on BT streaming but you can skip to next song & pause from the deck itself. I haven't used Pandora but I assume it will work. I stream podcasts from Google Listen and its fine. One flaw I have found with BT streaming is that when you skip to the next song. the 1st .5 second is cut off for some reason(did not have this problem with my blackberry). You also have to wake the phone to get music streaming to pair but the phone call profile pairs automatically. You do get caller names when you receive a call. All in all, it works pretty darn good.

    sounds like the usb is for charging the phone and the aux is for playing music maybe going to look up the device though

    okay nrm that idea do you have a smaller microsd card it says it ipod friendly but not directly iphone from what i saw one guess i would make is that it might not support the large sd cards but your also not seeing the message on the phone which happened to me on a rom before but started working after turning on the usb debug

    im still just wanting to find a good way to use bluetooth to connect to my cars stero for music streaming and since its a vw i dont want to change the system out cause of picky eletronics in the car and i like my steering wheel track changer ><

    maybe your stereo sucks.. I have an alpine and it not only connects with ease, but it'll play all of my music off my downloaded files and even pandora...

    USB mounting works with factory Honda's from what I hear, I have a co worker that does it with his droid.
