Hi, I am A. Stevens here to help with your question!
Could you tell me what the make and model of the adpater you are using is?
It is simply described as
'Samsung Vehicle Dock Kit for S II
Is it connected to your vehicle through an 3,5mm aux cable?
Or do you know how it connects?
It comes provided with an electric 12v plug. There is no scope in the car to use an aux cable and I am relying on the phone speaker
So this is the issue.
The adapter is taking over your audio output from the phone.
So that's why the speaker does not work.
You have to have the aux cable connected, otherwise the audio will not work.
Perhaps your could get a casette tape 3.5mm aux adapter?
Are you sure? It doesn't take it over on calls. I'll have to try it in our other car which does have an aux input.
I have the aux cable but can't use it on my main car. It could still be a problem therefore
Yes, calls typically behave differently then the audio from maps.
I'd give it a try with the car with the aux input.
As far as your main car goes, there are different options to install an aux input.
I could provide you some info on that if you can let me know the year/make/model of your vehicle.
Ok - but that will be tomorrow evening at the eartliest.
Car in question is an Alfa 159
You can just give it a try and return to this chat with the results.
I'll respond as promptly as I can.
Ok - Thanks
You could get that installed in your Afla to have an aux input.
You were quite right. Pity there is no reference to this when the unit is provided. Thanks for the tip
