Sound from Android phone through car speakers
My name is Dave and this is my first post on the forum after owning my 2.2 i-ctdi for about 12 months now.
My car has the factory option Bluetooth kit, which appears to be the standard head unit with the addition of a unit with 3 buttons and a blue light mounted in the driver's door pillar. I have this connected to my Sony Experia J mobile phone which works well using hands-free for calls. I assumed that whilst connected this way I would also be able to use my phone as a source for music etc, but nothing happens. I would like to be able to use the output from my phone whilst running Navigation and to get the sound from the phone to come out of the car speakers and mute the stereo as it does when I receive a call.
Is there a way that I can achieve this? It seems daft that I can only use it for calls after it costing a few hundred quid when bought. I have considered using the AUX input but that appears to be only for a CD stacker and there doesn't seem to be a headphone socket input anywhere on the car.
