    I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 and I use an IBOLT dock. I listen to pod casts, audio apps, audio books, music through my car stereo with no problems what-so-ever.:) When I get a phone call... the audio never routes through the car speakers. :( It usually activates speaker phone on the phone itself, but turning that off just re-routes the audio through the handset's normal speaker that you hold up to your ear. Is there a way to make phonecalls route through my car speakers? :thinking:

    Thanks

    Are you using the Aux In cable or an A2DP enabled stereo? If not your phone call audio can only route through the phones internal speakers. That's a Samsung thing, not iBolt.

    Aha I am using the AUX in on my car stereo using the usb-style out of my phone (not from the mini audio jack) So only Bluetooth with A2DP will get me what I want. Thanks ! :)

    Either Bluetooth with A2DP, or with an audio cable direct from your S4 audio out jack to your radio Aux in.
