Has anyone got a Samsung Galaxy S3 and use it with the Fiesta USB/Blutooth for music and calls?

I currently have an iPhone 4s, but disapointed with the 5, so going to change to an S3. Only trouble is I like the way the radio works with the iPhone and don't want to loose the functionality I have (selecting/listing tracks on the radio display and having the phonebook on the display).

Any information is greatly appreciated

Android phones do not display track/artist information on the radio screen I'm afraid :(

EDIT: I may stand corrected judging by Mathrin's reply below...

It certainly pulls through the track title that is playing as I use it quite often on the way to work.

I have S3 . I have mk3 Focus phone book works fine , but track info does not display then playing audio via bluetooth. But if I get time I will do the audio update on the radio as it may not be upto date and report if that changes

Well.. I tried to update it a couple of weeks back to no success, it just wouldn't *do* anything, so I'm guessing it was already updated when I got it from the factory. Only problem is spotify DOESN'T pull anything through... so I'm really unsure if I do or not.

Thanks for the replies. Are you streaming via Bluetooth or using the USB port for music?

Mine didn't before the update, but track now displays perfectly after the update. That's with an iPhone 4 though.

Has anyone got a Brodit holder for their galaxy s3 yet? I want to get one, but not sure if I can use it with a case on my S3?
