    Default LG G3 Aux and Bluetooth Connectivity

    I read a forum post that mentioned the G3 not playing music through a Mazda CX-5 (specifically in that post) aux cord.
    Can anyone share their experiences playing music through their car's radio via aux cable or making phone calls with bluetooth?

    Used bluetooth today in my Q5 and it was flawless. No problems other than my idottie dock closing mechanism was hitting the down volume button but I adjusted the G3 a bit higher. No problem using ok google over bluetooth either.

    Do not play music from my phone since my Audi takes an SD card.

    I haven't tried using an aux cable, but I've had no issues streaming podcasts and making calls via Bluetooth.

    I have the G3 and am finding that the Aux cable connection is very problematic in my '10 Suburu Forester. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I honestly have no idea what causes it to function or not. Usually I have to unplug and plug in the cable five or six times before it will play and I have to do this every time I turn the car off. On the other hand, my headphones are Bluetooth and they work flawlessly.

    That's frustrating. I listen to music through the aux often, especially when using Spotify. Thanks for sharing your experience with it.

    I haven't used aux, either, but streaming bluetooth works fine for both phone calls and media. I have a Ford Fusion with Sync.

    Im having the same problem. Metadata was coming through on my S3 (after the kitkat update), but not with my Verizon G3

    I'm having a similar issue. Trying to play music through aux on external speakers with no luck at all. Worked fine on my htc one.

    Its an issue for sure. My G2 worked fine with my aux and now the G3 has problems. As many have said, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. Its very inconsistent. I have an aux 3.5mm line going into an alpine imprint audio processor and its very hit or miss with the G3. Every other phone I've tried, has worked flawless. I hope LG can push an ota to fix it.

    **** UPDATE***** If the phone is plugged in (aux) prior to the car / radio or device being turned on the phone should pick up the connection. I tested this a few times already with success.

    It's a known issue. See my post this forum.
    http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...-jack-aux.html

    Also a long thread on xda developers
    Aux cable problem | LG G3 | XDA Forum

    Pugging in the phone/Aux connection before powering up the stereo does not work reliably.
    There's also the whole issue of the "sound explosion/pop" noise between every track of music when you're plugged in via AUX. It's not good. That happens only in the left channel. There's also the issue of "junk noise" (computer-typ sounds, various pitches, a very, very high frequency steady-pitch noise, clicks, motorboating, etc) during silent passages. Again, on the left channel. basically if you're using AUX, it's a mess.

    Someone posted on xda that they think the G3 has sensing circuitry that is looking for an active "load" on the amplifier side.
    Aux Cable / Headphone Bug - Post #5 - XDA Forum

    Thus, if the car stereo is powered up, the G3 may be happy. However, many car stereos also have the "load sensing" circuit and are looking for a signal/connection on the input side. If the car stereo does not see an input, it won't connect. Therefore you can have these two devices not recognizing each other because their sensing circuitry is not coordinating. Making for great difficulty establishing and maintaining a connection. The loud noise between each track is somehow connected. The junk noise would appear to be bad shielding. however KitKat is known to have bad audio issues so it's hard to tell. Strange that it's just the left channel. Makes me think it is hardware-related. I've noticed that the junk noise is directly related to display activity. When you activate the display and start scrolling or navigating, the noises are directly proportional to the activity on the screen. Again, seems like a bad shielding issue between audio conductors and high-frequency conductors that are driving the display

    I can report that the Kensington "Noise Reducing" aux cord works well.

    Pretty much eliminates connection problems.
    Still some click noise between music tracks but it's much, much better. Still some of that "computer talk" junk noise in the left channel.
    I can live with this for now until Android or LG get's this fixed.

    I have a Mazda3 and playing music and making calls via Bluetooth have been great, the only thing missing is Meta Data showing up on the dashboard, but I have grown accustom to this because my old Iphone didn't either. Have not tried the AUX cord.
