    Default Bluetooth with car radio

    I just upgraded my phone to a Galaxy S4. I would like to know if several apps, such as Google Maps, S4 Voice, etc will work over the Bluetooth in my 2013 car with the radio in the car playing?

    If it will not, is there an app that will help that?

    I think you should first try it and see whether it works like you expect it to in your car. But I am advised it will work just fine, otherwise if there arises a problem, then there's always a solution.Let me know.

    That is the basis for my question. I have tried it and nothing comes over the radio if the radio is playing. I did not know if it was because the phone will not support it Or if the settings are incorrect

    What kind of car do you have? a 2013 car may not support the necessary functions for bluetooth streaming.

    Does your car have a function for bluetoooth audio in the audio section of the radio?

    Are you trying to do it via the phone system bluetooth connection in the car?

    It may not support working on the phone system portion since that is used for phone call audio only.

    Some cars will have a seperate bluetooth audio connection in them.

    But if you have a standard aux in port that would allow you to connect a mini stereo cable to your phone's headset port for audio, but would not work via bluetooth audio.

    Then the problem is with the radio not the phone, I am not sure on how to work on the car bluetooth setting but it seems its bluetooth device is more advanced than your phones or the viceversa or its just some setting that you could change. The best you could do is get in touch with the radio manufacturer or your car technician(not mechanic). But, before you do so, try using a different phone and see whether it works. You could also get the radios manual and see whether you could work on the settings its probably something to do with the settings.

    Ok I will try to address/answer all questions.

    First of all this is a Samsung Galaxy S4, purchased Saturday so it is up to date. The car is a 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.0 and it is completely bluetooth capable. I can stream music, the Assistant App works fine including interrupting the radio for "conversation". If I set the car radio mode to bluetooth audio all apps work fine. It is only when the radio is playing certain apps do not interrupt the radio.


    Does your car have a function for bluetoooth audio in the audio section of the radio?
    Yes it does as described above.

    Are you trying to do it via the phone system bluetooth connection in the car?
    Yes and most of the time it work flawlessly. Phone calls and the Assistant interrupt the radio and release it back to the radio.

    It may not support working on the phone system portion since that is used for phone call audio only.
    This works.

    Some cars will have a seperate bluetooth audio connection in them.
    My car has a separate setup for bluetooth and my phone is paired.

    But if you have a standard aux in port that would allow you to connect a mini stereo cable to your phone's headset port for audio, but would not work via bluetooth audio.
    I realize this and my car does have an aux port and it functions EXCEPT I cannot listen to radio.
    My prior phone and car, HTC Rezound and 2008 Veracruz worked just fine.

    I know my S4 on 4.3 has some issues with bluetooth audio, where I cannot see track information from pandora anymore, but works fine in other aspects.

    I know on my car, unless I am bluetooth audio, I don't get any interruption on my car when listening to regular radio unless I am on the bluetooth audio function or if a call comes in.

    I am wondering if the phone and car being different than your previous ones is the issue here. different car, different phone, different functionality.

    That may be the case and hence the reason for my original post. If it is known that there are bluetooth problems with S4 are there any apps that address it?

    But I do have 1 app that works with the bluetooth perfectly. It interrupts my car radio or anything else in the car. So if that is the case the units are compatible. It has to be the Google apps are lacking....

    any possible solutions to this problem? It seems the S4 connectivity to my car's bluetooth is lacking......my prior phone, 3 years old, worked just fine with the same car.
