    Not sure if this is the right forum for this topic, but anyway...

    I have a 2010 Mazda3. I use my ipod to play music in the car.
    I have never been able to get the ipod and the car to synch for playback,
    so I used a cord connection via the AUX input.

    This worked fine for years.

    However recently I got a Samsung Smart phone (Android) and
    when the phone is in the car, I cannot get the AUX connection
    to work as the car starts searching for a blu tooth and will not
    allow the AUX input to work. It seems that the blu tooth and
    the ipod are tying also to make a connection. I have tried
    turning of the blu tooth options on both devices, but the problem
    remains. I am not sure there is a way to disable the blu tooth on the
    car, the owner manual is a bit vague about this and the display
    offers no clue.

    I would like to continue to be able to have the phone in the car and
    to play music as I had before. Any suggestions on now to make this
    work would be welcome.

    Thanks.

    Best option is to load your Android phone with all your music, and let the car access it via Bluetooth Media setting. Far easier than having to fuss with cabling. Keep phone in pocket and answer calls via car and listen to music same way.

    Thanks... I need to figure out how to make that work. So far the blu tooth in the car does not want to play nice with any device, but guess it is just a matter of trial and error.
