I imagine that would make the music sound really, really bad.

Sounds like you would be better off with something like a Sound Fly. Plugs into your cigarette lighter and streams Bluetooth > FM.

if your car supports bluetooth,for best quality use a 3.5mm jack....there's a couple good apps for with equalizers..or volume+ to get some very loud stuff pushing out plus settings in beta stage I believe and need to be rooted...bluetooth to me I don't think the quality will be that good,I may be wrong..

No, use bluetooth. The BT encoding is CD quality for starters. Plus this keeps the signal digital from source to receiver.

A big problem with using the jack is if you are also charging the phone you can set up a ground loop which will ruin the sound quality. Which is another good reason to stick with BT.

He's talking about transmitting music through the mono hands free profile, not A2DP - his stereo doesn't support it. So it most definitely will not be "CD quality" otherwise my phone calls should be sounding a helluva lot better.

cjindustry: like madeSICC mentioned, BTmono may be what you're looking for. Give it a shot, although it won't work with everything. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....bedoig.BTmono

And maybe you can look into your car's audio system a bit more, see if there's an auxiliary input that isn't advertised. Mine had the headers for aux but nothing hooked up to it. $20 later and I had the parts to install my own 3.5mm aux jack which is what I use for my in-car audio. Like techntrek said though, if you're charging there's always the possibility of some interference being heard and worst-case scenario, a power surge that could fry your stereo.

When you pair the device, go into the Bluetooth menu and see if there are settings to switch on/off for phone as well as media. Maybe with that you may get what you need. Just an idea.

I used to listen to Sirius/podcasts and stuff through my regular BT earpiece on Windows Mobile, but have always found on Android that it is just too quiet to pump media through regular BT.
Gonna try with the Note tomorrow, hopefully its better.
There are a couple of apps to do it in the market (oh wait, its not called that anymore...)

The poster I was responding to made it sound like playing music through a jack will sound better than using BT, which isn't true. I wasn't talking about the OP. I didn't want anyone reading this thread to walk away from it thinking that a hard-wired jack has better sound quality than BT.

You are correct that if the OP has an option between using a jack or the mono phone profile the jack will sound better. I gave him a better option (the Sound Fly) which will let him use the better-sounding BT.

For starters make sure the Android Media volume is set to high, also make sure the app you are using to stream or play podcasts has its own volume set to high (some apps let you link the two, which I recommend). Then you can try adding something like Music Volume EQ by K&K Design to boost the volume (especially bass) even more.

If you stream Sirius do NOT use the SiriusXM app to do it. It will not give you the full 128 kbps sound quality you can get from the desktop app, even though it claims it will adjust dynamically to current network conditions. My solution is to use moble.musicdock.com along with the XiiaLive Lite streaming app.
