Can anyone help me out with this..
Ive recently bought a new car and I am trying to play spotify through the car speakers using my htc android smartphone.
Ive got a premium spotify account and use it on my mobile already.
The car doesnt have an AUX input (as far as I can see) so I cant connect it that way.
There is a USB port in the car and its bluetooth compatible however when i try to connect the phone via USB the spotify app wont run on my phone.
Would I be able to connect the phone to the USB port in the car using a jack to usb cable? Would that work? I dont want to waste money on one of the cables if it wouldnt.
Any help would be much appreciated
Thanks in advance

I've not heard of a jack-to-USB converter cable before so not sure about that. What's the purpose of the USB port in the car though? Is it intended to allow you to plug in an external music source - maybe a USB stick containing MP3s? If that's the case then it wouldn't work with the Spotify app on the phone anyway as the song files are not stored as MP3 and will only play through the app itself.
I play songs through my car speakers from the Spotify app using a jack to radio signal converter, and then tune the radio to that frequency - something like this (although cheaper, similar things are availabe) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Griffin-iTrip-Auto-Unive
