@Luckyeddy my Samsung Transform from 2 years ago works when I plug it in using the USB port. I can access the MP3s on the phone I have yet to try Pandora or any other apps.

This thread would be better in A/V Electronics, so I'll move it over there.

Default 2011 Accord - auxiliary input not working with Apple devices

As soon as i got my 2011 accord coupe i noticed the nice USB interface and auxiliary input. So i plugged in my iPhone and was ABLE to play music from youtube and the sound would come through the car's audio system. Also, my nano iPod WAS playing music through the car's audio system all fine. But then one day i updated the software of my iPhone and BAM! youtube would not play any longer through the car's system. When i pressed the Aux button, it says that the device is connected but nothing plays. I tried difference cables (USB to iPhone port) and nothing. Then, one day i added more songs to my iPod through my Win7 iTunes and next the songs would not play also on the USB interface either. SIGHHHH!

Whatever updates i guess i did not is not supported for the iPhone. And now the iPod would not play either, that i'm really not sure how could that be possible. Any ideas? I've been reading through the forums and have read to update software/firmaware, but for me updating broke it.

Default Apple devices work

I dont have any problem with Apple devices. When we connect any apple device, it recognizes the ipod in it and works beautifully. I can control the audio using the user interface in the dashboard. I really liked it a lot because I can prepare playlists with the songs I want.

Now I have moved to Samsung Galaxy S3 and I dont have a way of using this feature. Now I am regretting to for this. Please let me know if there is any workaround for this.

I'm in the same boat using the Galaxy. just organised my playlist and very disapointed I have not tried Pandoria yet. I did read somewhere that the mp3's need to be on either the root, or one folder down in the memory. I will try this tonight...
