    How to play music with android and USB?

    So I recently got a new job at T-Mobile and have to ditch my iPhone. I am most likely going to get the HTC One S. It has android 4.0 ICS with beats audio. I love being able to get into my car plug in my iPhone and just go. Is there anyway to get Android to play so i can use my radio controls rather than scrolling on the phone and using an Aux cable?

    Thanks in advance

    -Jerry

    Your android phone should plug in and work the same as the iPhone. When I plug mine in I can use the radio/steering wheel controls to change songs etc. (HTC Evo) . You shouldn't have any problems.

    How do you have your music saved on the phone? Also does it take long for it to connect.

    Jerry if you're on an Android phone, it's as easy as copying from your computer to your phone drive like you would with any mp3 player or thumb drive. Just connect your phone to computer via usb and you should get a message if you want to sync. You could also just use a card reader and transfer directly to card. You can store anywhere but I would create a music folder if there isn't one already.

    If you're on an iPhone, give me 20 minutes to write the instructions lol

    The problem with Android is as soon as you use a data link on the USB port, the SD card becomes unavailable for anything else, such as navigation. I know Windows Mobile 6.x and earlier didn't have this issue. I have heard that Blackberry doesn't either. I don't know about the IPhone.

    It used to be I had to grab CD's from the visor CD holder, or from the black Caselogic zip bag in the backseat... now I just have a few USB sticks in the center console or drivers door labeled with a music genre. They range in size 1GB, 2GB maybe one 4GB & all are freebies from trade shows or vendors, etc. Though very doable... I like to use my phone for other things rather than music, but I digress.

    I'm sure the Op will figure out everthing he needs to use his Android powered phone & as long as he's ditched the iPhone & not his Cruze it's all good... as with anything YMM.

    I don't have USB input or I'd test but can't you just set up your phone to "charge only"?

    When I do that I can't get at the SD card. I currently use the AUX but tested my phone with the Sonic yesterday. I'm thinking about replacing the PDIM to get the A2DP Bluetooth music. This would also allow me to control the stock android music player from my steering wheel controls.

    I haven't been able to get my Galaxy Nexus to be seen by the Cruze yet. It says device not supported.
