Default Android/Equinox audio integration.

So yeah once I got my Droid I sold my iPod thouch. I was curious if anyone else knows if there is talk about making the android smart phones capable of select/browsing songs through the factory radio?

Default aftermarket remote start

I have decided to add an aftermarket remote start system in our 2010 Equinox (We have an LT with several upgrades and not an LT2). I found a system on Crutchfield that integrates this through your Droid or Iphone (no remote). I believe it said you have radio control ability on your phone as well. I'll go look at it again and post a link to it. It sounds like an awesome system! Will be a good X-Mas present for my wife as well!

I am wondering if you will be able to scroll through your songs on the radio instead of controlling play on Droid...

Here is the unit I am looking at:

http://www.crutchfield.com/p_607PS30...em.html?tp=149

I'm starting to think this might be a little pricey. And no radio controls like I thought. You have to get a service plan as well. Looks like it is $99.99 for 3 years. I think I will call the local audio shop and get their suggestions.

Is the remote on your LT2 anything like the GM Advance remote for the Silverado? I'm seriously considering adding that to my truck. I read on our truck forum that you can control the radio stations with that one. If I can find one just like it for the Equinox, that's probably what I'll end up getting, unless the audio shop has one with the Iphone integration for a decent price.

Has anybody had any luck getting an android to connect via USB with the 2011 system? My old iphone would just plug in and play the music but I cant get the Nox to even acknowledge my Galaxy S2 is connected via USB.

No at the moment. This was a bummer for me at first but over all I am much happier with my Bionic over my iphone. My truck does not have the usb anyways so I am used to just plugging in the aux chord in on the dash.

I just got my 2012 LTZ without MYLink, and i can't get my HTC EVO 3D to be recognized either. At least i can get it to link up for Bluetooth. I also have a Microsoft Zune 8GB which when plugged in radio states "Device not Recognized" I wish they would come out with a list of devices that would work for each configuration. The big question is when we get new phones in the future will they even link via bluetooth? Lets hope so!

They will always work with Blue tooth. It's a Universal Standard. I had a ipod when we first got our Nox... It was nice to have the integration but it was definitely having over a Android device for me.. I'd rather be without the integration.

That's good to know, i've had alot of phones in the past that never worked with my Tom Tom via bluetooth. Any idea if GM will have firmware updates to update the list of MP3 players in the future?
