Blue and Me with Andriod Samsung S9

I purchased a 10 plate evo recently, spotify or YouTube won't play music through the car. I'm going insane trying to figure out how to do it!

Any help or solutions would be helpful. Thank you.

Re: Blue and Me with Andriod Samsung S9

Welcome to the forum. Blue and Me is terrible, sadly. It was designed in 2007 and barely worked with 1/2 the phones that were out back then, you've got almost no chance with anything modern. If it doesn't have an aux port, your best option for Bluetooth audio streaming is to replace the headunit with an aftermarket one.

Blue and me is increadable weird in that it will work for one phone then not work at all for the next one you plug in, or you can have two identical cars side by side and your phone will work in one but not in the other.

I have a 2011 Evo and it works with my wife's iPhone XR, yet there was a guy on hear the other day with the same Aged car and his wouldn't work with an iPhone 5s

Trying to solve the problem will literally drive you insane.

Re: Blue and Me with Andriod Samsung S9

When I have fiddled around with some of the buttons it comes up with 'aux' but has no cable?

I tried my old iPhone 6s and it wouldn't connect to that either. I have been looking at new head unit for the radio. Even tempted to take it to a fiat dealership and get them to do it.

I am already insane from trying things! Usb stick in into the windows port wouldn't work

You can reset the 'lauberhorn' that drives it all for cheap.. no point in paying dealer rates.

Some ports are in glovebox .. others by gearstick.. which is yours

Re: Blue and Me with Andriod Samsung S9

If nothing is working, including a usb stick then I’d suggest that the USB port is faulty

Re: Blue and Me with Andriod Samsung S9

The usb port is at the bottom. I cant find the aux to put anything in it?

The usb port works as it charges my phone. I'm looking into a new head unit but proving hard as it's always 09 or 11 to fit the car.

Re: Blue and Me with Andriod Samsung S9

See my usb port doesnít charge my iphone but works with a usb stick for music another weird thing is that my dashcam charges from the USB port, I think it depends on what device is plugged in so the computer can either charge it or use it to read data.

I gave up and just use a FM transmitter to stream music to my car, works just as though itís plugged in but itís wireless so I think itís better.

Re: Blue and Me with Andriod Samsung S9

I purchased a fm transmitter so I'm hoping that works if not it's a new radio I think!

Thank you all for the advice.

Re: Blue and Me with Andriod Samsung S9

I use 87.5FM and have it programmed to button number 6, and the Bluetooth connects straight away when the car starts and Spotify plays from where it was last, and calls some through it too (does a better job than blue and me dare I say it ).

Hope it works great for you
