How do I get the sound to work on car dock!

2012-03-30, 13:06 PM

I recently ordered a Droid 3, which came with free car dock and home dock. But when the phone is hooked up to the car dock-which is suppose to help the phone be "hands free"- the sound won't work. In other words, when I get a text and it says, "say Listen to hear your text" I can't ? This also happens when I try to use the navigation. I can see and it works fine, but I can't hear the instructions unless I take it off the dock, which is where I need it to be.


So basically this is some sort of audio versus dock issue because this all works OFF the dock.


Any ideas???

Are you using Blue-tooth or an audio cable to connect to your car radio?


Blue-tooth in some cars (in both of our cars for example) is separated into phone and Media connections.


In my car, phone calls flow to the radio and overrides the audio.


All other audio, including music, notifications and navigation is only heard when the BT audio is selected and no other audio is competing with it.

NO, I am not using a bluetooth, didn't think you had too with "hands free". And yes, I have the sound turned up. I do not know how to hook the car dock up to the radio anyway? Want to enlighten me?? I have a 2001 Mitisbishit Galant so I don't have the fancy hook up for cars like my sister does. I just plug the "car dock" into the lighter and place my phone on it and thats it. I have a blue tooth, somewhere, but I thought the hole idea of having this car dock was so I didn't have to have something plugged into my ear?? Please help??????
