So I just recently switched from iPhone to Android, and I have been having a **** of a time getting the phone to connect to the car via the USB port in my 2013 GLS. With my iPhone, it was as simple as plug n play...not so much with the Android (it's a Verizon LG G2, for what it's worth), as every time I plug in the USB cable, I get "Connection Error" on the screen, and then it just switches back to whatever audio mode I was in before.

I know the USB port actually says "iPod" underneath it specifically, but the owner's manual vaguely hints at a universal USB music mode...I've gone through the menus and tinkered with some of the options, but am unable to find a solution. I really do not want to use Bluetooth. I will buy a car charger and aux cable and just have two connections if need be, but I gotta believe there's a way to have a non-iOS device hooked up through the USB port and be able to play music through it. I don't even need metadata to show up on the screen, just a simple connection would do it!

i have the same issue with my 2011 sonata. i have a Galaxy S2 and the USB connection seems to work whenever it feels like it. i wish i had an answer, but i'm glad it's not just me with this problem.

I've got an HTC one and I have the same issues. I believe that it was just designed for the iPhone unfortunately. As far as the universal USB goes, I have a feeling that it means that you can plug in a flash drive (I know phone essentially is one) and only that. The other thing it it may be the firmware with the tech package that wont recognize Android so it kicks it out. These are just my thought.
