Its more of a problem of phone manufacturer to make sure that it is considered as a usb music player when connected to a device.
These days all cars come with bluetooth though. No manufacturer is going to do this, as wires are quickly becoming a thing of the past...

That Bluetooth kit you ordered looks awesome though! Good luck with it.

Now if only manufacturers would start putting Qi charging areas in cars, that is an idea I could get behind!

What happened to the aux input? I've been using it in all my cars for years now.

If theres a kit of some sort.. anything ! I'll get it but I haven't been able to play music while driving for days now. Shouldve got iphone 5s instead, what a shame !
lol should have gotten a better car audio system instead, I mean if your unit doesn't support bluetooth audio playback how would an ifruit5s help?

Its a factory installed bose and has awesome quality audio. I have friends who own range rovers, jaguars with sony and pioneer audio systems and everyone agree that audio quality of my car is the best. It works awesome with usb with iphones. it doesn't detect android !

Well if it is a BOSE then no wonder because it's one of the best when it comes to audio. From my experience you get better sound quality when using an aux (3.5mm jack) cable when connecting your device compared to USB or Bluetooth. So if it has an aux input you should take advantage of it so you can get more quality and also higher volumes

This post makes no sense. How does aux give you a better sound than USB or Bluetooth.
Aux is an analog signal where USB and Bluetooth are both digital.
The order of quality should go from best to worse below
USB > Bluetooth > Aux > FM adapter

Potential for interference in the path to 'analog' audio.
