    USB Device Auto Play

    I recently just got my cruze and decided to use the USB port to charge my phone (Evo 4G LTE) if I plug in the phone it will automatically start playing music that is on the phone. I don't want it to auto play I would like to just charge the phone. This also occurs if I have the phone plugged in and turn on the car. I just want to keep the radio on and not have to manually switch sources back to FM every time. I have a 2012 cruze lt.

    Is there a fix?

    Welcome!

    Get a cigarette lighter USB charger to charge your device, the USB port in console is for USB music interface and is functioning as it should. This way your phone can be charged and not mess with stereo.

    This also would not happen if you used a USB flash drive for music as it would always be connected. Your stereo would remain on the last source used even when you start your car. The problem with having your phone plugged in to that USB port is every time you start your car it forces the phone to USB storage mode, which acts just like when you plug in a new device it switches sources to USB.

    I usually just press source 5 times in my case when I plug in if I don't plug in before MyLink intro screen is finished. I have a CD in so it may differ from the rest of you guys.

    The Cruze stereos default to USB for source no matter which source was selected the last time it was on? I'm surprised you don't have to select the USB for the stereo to play it. In my car, you can plug anything into the USB port, but the audio system won't play it unless you select it as the source. It will access the device and index the contents, but it won't play it by default.

    For my 13 If I don't plug in before I turn the car on and plug in before mylink finishes into screen it ignores my phone completely even if I have Pandora in the background. If I open the app it shoots to that app and bluetooth when I source button away from it.

    This is what I do...as soon as I noticed the radio do that, plus it disabling bluetooth audio, I got my cig lighter charger out...

    Sorry to necro bump a two year old thread, but does anyone else have problems where your USB music device (phone in my case) doesn't automatically move to the next song? Every time one song ends I have to press the next button on the dash. Can't figure it out for the life of me. Tried choosing "play all songs" and that didn't work. Would rather not have to resort to the aux cable

    When you say "phone", is it treating it like a iPod, or is it treating it like a USB thumbdrive? Depending on where you are when you tell it to play, it may only play the songs in that folder and stop.
