Default Controlling iphone/Android phone using car AV

Hi Friends,

Is there any AV system or adaptor that would enable us to control an Iphone/ipod or an android device using the Car AV touchscreen?

By control I mean the phone, music, applications etc.

Please suggest.

regards,

Nitin

Difficult to find such a controller which can control everything (at least i have not seen anything like this). There are systems which have iPod/iPhone interface using which you can control the music played (Not Video) and playlists. These are not available on Android as the interface connection is Audio only and Data and information (like playlists and ID3 tags) cannot be transferred on it.

On the other hand there are Bluetooth enabled systems which let you use the phone features of iPhone and Android (Not sure about iPhone as its finicky with Bluetooth), like making calls, receiving them and possibly getting to contacts list as well.

Never have come across any which lets you use the applications, technically speaking it would be difficult too.

There is no device to 100% control an Android phone, but use Live View to use your phone's most used features.

It costs around 5000/- in india.

It cannot be interfaced with your Car HU but use the wrist strap to tie it up to the steering or mount it on the dash.

I'm not sure if any of you are aware; Pioneer has introduced the "Appradio" device which can link to the iphone/ipod 4th gen. Using the application "appradio" software, there are certain applications that can be run from the iphone/ipod. The applications would be increased/updated regularly.

AppRadio | Pioneer Electronics USA

Hope they bring the appradio for android as well!

Try these two software from Android market.
  • Car Connect
  • Driver Droid
They seem to take care of all the functions that you may need while driving. This is the nearest thing to Pioneer AppRadio.

Secondly, Android is preliminarily a phone and not a music player (read iPOD), so there is not really a need to interface an android device to a Car HU. Anyway for music and calls we already have the BT interface.
