Usb/bluetooth And Samsung Galaxy S3
Posted 09 November 2012 - 03:04 PM
I too am thinking fo leaving the iphone behind for a Galxy S3 and would love to know what will happen if i plug an S3 in via the special USB port ( I dont have bluetooth). Will I be able to operate it remotely via steering wheel as I currently do my iPhone? If not I may just turn my iphone into a satnav and mp3 playing device and permanently keep it in my car and use an s3 for everything else.....

If you connect via Bluetooth to your SGS3 , then you can control via the Steering wheel or voice control.
I have never tried plugging the SGS3 into the USB port. But via blue tooth every thing works fine.
OPs just re-read your post.
Well like i said i have never tried it , but it should work like a USB drive and play music and controlled via the steering wheel.
I did think though that if you had a USB port in a Ford fitted Stereo then you naturally also had bluetooth as standard.It's usually Bluetooth with 3.5mm jack input and usually the USB is an extra to that.

I've only had the car a few weeks and its a new, 62 plate basic Econetic. I've not noticed any obvious symbols indicating that it was bluetooth but I do have the special USB with 3.5mm jack. If i had bluetooth would it be under the settings tab on the stereo?
UPDATE: OK Ive had a fiddle around and I'm pretty sure i do NOT have bluetooth
I'd appreciate it if someone with an S3 and special USB port could give it a whirl and let me know the results

It doesn't pull any track info over bluetooth either. And I can't use the steering wheel controls to change track.
I'm going to update the firmware to see if this changes. Can anyone let me know if they can do any of these things with their android phone. Also, if you can what music app do you use.
