I am curious if anyone knows how to use the Note 3 with a Sony Double Din.

I can use BT of course but I would like to transfer movies to the head unit via files on my phone. I know I could just use a flash drive but I am trying to eliminate that. The head unit does not recognize my phone and is not compatible with the USB. Assuming this is because my Note 3 does not have the correct driver.

My phone is rooted and I would think there is a work around, I have searched for Sony Drivers just don't find a definite solution to download to my phone.

Thx

Does your head unit support android? Probably not, it's not a driver issue on the phone its your head unit not being compatible with Android/USB etc...

My KDC x395 supports iPhone but not android properly.

If your phone supported usb mas storage it may work. Doubt it though. Tried that before.

If your head unit supports USB then it should work. Originally the note 3 couldn't enable USB mass storage mode but now the compulsion kernel supports it. If u are rooted u can install the compulsion kernel and then download the sg USB mass storage enabler app. Then once u connect it to your Sony head unit with a cable it will read it as if it's a flash drive.
