    Does anyone know of an aftermarket HU that is compatible when using usb connection on an s7? I want to use just audio out on my phone and control spotify on my phone itself. I've tried a kenwood kdc 300 and pioneer x8800bhs and they don't work. I want the best sound quality and aux and Bluetooth are inferior sounding to me.

    You need a head unit that supports the MTP protocol over USB but is NOT compatible with the Zune or Zune HD player (they use a special MTP mode)

    This one works, because it's what I have in my Jeep: https://www.amazon.com/PIONEER-DEHX6...cUvbUpU5668073

    The Pioneer X8800bhs you tried should work, too. Did you switch your phone to the copy files mode when you plugged it in?

    Jerry - will these HUs allow app playback via USB?

    Yes. I went under developer options too and switched to mtp mode. But for some reason it just keep switching back to audio source.
