OT - How does one use (hook up to car radio) the app:

I Heart Radio? I have a Samsung Galaxy 5.

Sorry, but I am a high tech "child" and need help. TIA.

Bluetooth from your phone to radio, or Aux. cable from jack

on phone to back of car stereo.

If your radio does not have Bluetooth you can purchase a dongle that will convert the Bluetooth from your phone to an FM frequency.

Easy.

So you should definitely have Bluetooth built in I would

think.

Turn on you Bluetooth in your phone's settings, then with your car in park (or not moving) pair your phone to your radio. You will probably have to hit the phone button on your radio and go to settings. Should be easy from there. They will detect each other and pair up. Then just select "media" or whatever on your radio to play what your phone is playing.

You may have to check a box on your radio settings that says "allow streaming media" or something to that effect as well, or it may just think you want to use the phone for talking only.

if your car is old enough to have a tape player you can buy a converter for that as well. Requires the least amount of tech knowledge.

If your radio has bluetooth capabilities, all you need to do is pair the two. If bluetooth is not available on your radio, you'll need to connect the earphone outlet on the phone to the aux input on your radio. Cables to do that are available at Radio Shack in various lengths. Be sure to increase the volume on your phone after connecting the cable. The phone has a built-in safety feature which supposedly prevents users from listening on headphones at too great a volume.

For phone calls. Everything else has to be done with aux cable.

2015 kia is brand new. Just go to the dealership and make them teach you . You spent a lot of cash might as well get as much as you can out of them.


Open up the arm rest. The auxilary input may be there.

Plug a little aux cable in there and plug other end into your phone's little hole and profit.
