One of my favorite things to do while driving is to listen to music! Unfortunately, I can’t always rely on FM radio and am forced to use a smartphone instead. This usually means I’m less tethered than if I had been relying on a traditional radio station – there are no limits! Not only do I get all my favorite tunes, but audiobooks, podcasts, and other recordings too.
You can accomplish all of this best by connecting your phone while driving. This can be done by a variety of car holders. You can use the USB or AUX cable or Bluetooth- whichever you find most compatible with your car stereo. This time we will use an AUX cable to connect our smartphone with the head unit of a vehicle via a standard audio jack.
Connecting Phone To Car Stereo With Auxiliary Cable
In the past, people would connect their mobile phones to their cars using a cassette adapter. These days, however, we have found other ways such as an Aux cable or Auxiliary cable for this purpose. The following are some helpful tips for making these kinds of connections.
Your car stereo should have an Aux cable port. With the help of a 3.5 mm Aux cable, connect a car stereo with your mobile phone, which has an iPhone inserted. 3.5 mm (1/8 inch) is the size of this small cable on both ends.
To play sound from an external audio device, press the Aux button on the stereo system or toggle to input and select Aux.
You’re done! Turn your phone’s volume down to about 40-50% for safety reasons. Adjust the sound level from your car stereo instead – don’t go straight to increasing the sound on your mobile device; it’ll only ruin the quality of the music. That’s all there is to it! Now you can listen to different music while driving without getting caught up in traffic jams or other problems on the road.
