    Default Galaxy S3 and Ford Sync via USB

    Good Afternoon everyone!

    So I recently upgraded from an iPhone 3Gs to a Samsung Galaxy S3. So far I really like my new phone except there's one caveat I've noticed. When I had my music on the internal SD card it would read my music through the USB connection and I could use the voice controls with it. Voice controls being "Play Artist xxx, Play Track yyy, etc. etc." Though for some reason I would have to reseat the cable a couple of times before it would index properly. Still though, it would eventually work. Now a few days ago I put a microSD in my phone and transferred the music to that Sync won't read it. Is there anyway I can get it to? I've rooted my phone and downloaded several USB Mass Storage apps but none seem to work. Does anyone have a suggestion or a solution?

    Alternatively if I could get S Voice to be read through Sync instead that might work but I don't know how to make that happen.

    Thank you in advance for your help! :-)

    I have not been able to get S Voice to work through Sync (2010 Fusion)

    I've heard of other people getting Siri to work with other bluetooth HUs but I'm not sure how. Then again I don't have Siri.

    Correct. I had no issues with Siri but S Voice does not play well with Sync

    Out of curiosity how did you get Siri to work?

    So you have done the "Bluetooth Audio" in the car to play audio via Bluetooth? That works MOSTLY, but I don't think S-voice knows to listen to the microphone in the car via SYNC.

    I did a little more research. S-Voice does not however Vlingo has an in-car feature that may be able to. I'm going to have to play with it this weekend when I have some time. Now that i think about it ideally it would be best to use USB voice controls (e.g. Play Track, Play Artist, etc.) via Bluetooth. That way I can also receive incoming calls and texts.

    Just downloaded Vlingo but it doesn't work. Everytime i launch the in-car features, the app crashes on my S3

    Sync's USB option only connects with the internal memory on devices - unfortunately, external memory isn't supported because technically it isn't part of the phone. I recommend just using bluetooth audio.

    Yeah I've kinda given up on this project. Kinda sucks too because I used that feature all the time. Oh well. At least with bluetooth I have access to more features.
