Use Moto G to play music through car stereo?


I have a simple mp3 player in the car that I connect up with a USB to the car stereo. When playing tracks I get to see the track name etc and go forward/back through tracks using the car stereo controls.



Recently got a Moto G and want to play my spotify tracks as above. However it does not work through the USB. I can use the 3mm jack lead but then I do not see the track info and cannot go forwards/back via the car stereo.



What am I doing wrong?? Thanks

Unless your car stereo supports Bluetooth, it's not likely to work with Spotify any way other than thru the aux jack.  Unless your MP3 player was an iPod (those use a proprietary Apple interface), your stereo probably acted as its own MP3 player with your player's memory basically serving as a flash drive.  That method won't work with any Android app unless you pre-download the tracks to whatever part of memory your stereo sees when you hook up the phone via USB.
