    I remember hearing a while ago that the usb plug in cars was only for ipods. Not sure if that was fixed in newer cars for it to include android but that could be your issue.

    A little more info about the car and type of stereo would help. Civics have been around for a while.

    I have a 2012 Accord and my best friend has a 2012 Honda CRV. It's only iS**T that is supported. I LOVE my Hondas, but come on...really?

    In their defense, iPhones have a standard API that can be used to interface with the device, whereas with Android there are a lot more variables between manufacturers, software versions, etc...not to mention device driver management.

    Not saying it's impossible for automakers to include the technology to play your music over USB...but I kinda understand when some don't bother messing with it.

    I also tried it in my 2012 dodge charger and got the same "unsupported" message, but it works perfectly for my old iphone 4. I'm still looking around for units that support android, but pretty much all of them are designed for ipod/iphone.

    Toyota's entune works great with Android via bluetooth. Haven't even bothered trying with a USB cable because of it. Why use a wire if you don't have to?!

    Because I didn't want my phone to die. The usb port would allow me to charge and sync at the same time.

    2010 Acura and get the same Unsupported message. I believe all Honda lines require the file system to be either FAT or FAT32 otherwise it won't work. Certain I've read that somewhere before when I couldn't get my USB stick to work in my car. Sure enough it didn't work with NTFS...when I reformated the stick to FAT32, it worked.

    Not an issue anyway, I just use the bluetooth connection and not worry about draining the battery cause I can have the phone plugged into the lighter outlet for that.

    The failure is on Samsungs end. The car is expecting to see a standard USB mass storage device out there, and Samsung requires custom USB drivers and such that the Honda doesn't have.
    I'm not sure why Samsung has such a goofed up USB. I can't get my S3 to work on half of the PCs I've tried it on. Luckily, wireless works well for me.

    I'm pretty annoyed by this as well. I just purchased a 2013 Civic yesterday and was told repeatedly by several of the salesmen that it "integrated seamlessly with any smartphone". They were all hot on the text to speech for text messages and streaming Pandora. Too bad none of that works with Android. I'm going to go back today, but I'm sure they will have no answer.

    Speaking for myself, my 2012 Honda Civic doesn't recognize, and is not recognized by, my brand new Note 3. That's in addition to it being unrecognizable by USB like everyone else seems to be having a problem with.
    Does anyone have any possible solutions?

    Mainly because I didn't get Bluetooth on my Accord!

    androids did work before, but they worked on early jelly beans or earlier versions., we are now on a new operating system. like is sony playstation 1 or 2 or 3 being backwards compatible now? xbox, xbox 360, and xbox one. especially without anyway to actually update the system.

    maybe google can actually update their car app to be able to be backwards compatible with honda, or all cars, or honda can make an app for compatibility with android.

    but the fact is that with honeycomb and earlier versions. they did work alright. granted, it was just the internal media player that it controlled for usb hook up, but now these usb hookups don't even have enough power to charge a phone. especially now that phones like the s3, s4 note 2 and note 3 use 2 amp chargers, and stock car usb hookups are still at .5 amp.

    So either way, USB or WiFi, you'd have to use a cable, correct?
    Don't understand the logic. Use WiFi and plug phone into charger. Problem solved.

    EDIT: Meant Bluetooth, not WiFi.

    Same problem with my mom's Honda Pilot. That's why I just use the aux jack. Simple as that.

    Even though its been over a year, I still remember that the 2012 charger I had did not have Bluetooth. So yeah.

    My bad! Should have paid attention to others that explained the car in questions radio evidently doesn't support bluetooth and the USB doesn't support Android, at least newer Samsung firmware. Gonna have to check that out if I ever get to a point where I can upgrade to a " modern" vehicle with " modern" electronics. I'd be happy if I could get the Godsmack CD that's stuck in my CD player out! Wonder if there's a forum for that?
    Anyway, my apologies to RLLangley

    Not exactly. Android did away with Mass Storage mode starting with ICS (I believe), and now use MTP/PTP for default USB data connections.

    You should not need any drivers to view and access the files on your device over MTP assuming that the device you are connected to supports it (such as Windows computers). Typically, you'll only need drivers to do more complex system tasks with USB debugging enabled, such as adb and fastboot.

    The fact is that car manufacturers should be adding MTP support for their USB media ports (and I'm sure that some do...but obviously not Honda). It is a very common protocol -- most digital cameras, for example, use it. Unfortunately, none of this info actually helps anyone here having problems.

    I don't really feel like typing it all out again, but if you're interested, you can look at this thread here, I've elaborated on some of these points... post #1 post #2

    It's not really a change in the OS, as much as it is the fact that they stopped supporting mass storage mode and instead switched to MTP, as mentioned above. (also more fully explained here)

    Now...this is what does make me angry. Why on Earth would a salesman say "integrated seamlessly with any smartphone", when in fact almost no non-iPhones will work with it??? Just say it works with iPhones if that's all it does. And yeah, trust me, they won't be able to provide you with any intelligent answers.

    I'm sticking with what I said. I had two S3s. In MTP mode, neither of them would connect to two of the three PCs I tried them on. Virtually everything I transfer to those had to be done wirelessly. I now have an S4, and while I still typically use wireless syncing, it never has a problem with USB. I still say that Samsung has an issue with USB on the S3.

    Fair enough...that's highly possible.

    I've played with all the settings and got some of it to work. I can even use Pandora now, all through BT. The main issue I have with it now is the terrible lag, though. It takes about 5 seconds from when you push a button to where the audio actually changes. I listen to a lot of podcasts while commuting, and trying to FF, Rew, or skip tracks is just about impossible. It's nice to actually have audio, so on one hand it's hard to complain. Still, it seems crazy to loose much of the functionality. I can do the same thing by using aux. audio cable and just plugging it in manually.
