If there is nothing plugged in to AUX I can't do anything - if I just plug the cable in to AUX it says auxiliary devices are available but I can't add anything or see a list - if I plug the phone in music comes out of the radio
with phone paired, i go to i thinhk media the button under radio. and a soft button usually takes a second or two then u can push the aux it the third soft button to the right. then either hit play from phone of the radio. i perfer to control by phone.
my AUX does not light up (is grayed) so its not functional unless I plug a wire into the external AUX plug - I'm lost! If I go to blue tooth on my phone it sits there spinning on the devices line. Blue tooth phone works fine in the car
make sure your phone is already paired via bluetooth. then go to am/fm/aux and hit aux. you should be able to pair your phone. then all music audio on your phone should stream to the system's speakers. there will be no controls on the screen except pause, but the steering wheel buttons do some stuff, like advance to the next song, and volume. sound is excellent.
What kind of phone? Devices can pair as either a phone or an entertainment device or both. When you pair a typical phone, it usually does both types of pairing at the same time.
You can tell from the pairing listed when you go to system set up and pairing menu. It should list all the devices that you have paired, including your phone. There are two icons on the left of the device name, one looks like a phone the other music. You will only be able to connect to the phone for playing media if the entertainment icon is shown (may have an red X through it because its not connected).
You may have to set up your phone to stream over bluetooth, delete the current pairing from the radio and pair again. If the phone gets paired as an entertainment device, it will show up in the aux menu as a device to select, otherwise it won't and you will have phone calls only.
I'm sure you would have noticed, but my phone always asks me if it OK to connect to the radio, and unless you acknowledge, it doesn't connect. So make sure you respond to all prompts on the phone.
