    Has anyone figured out how to get the car stereo system to play songs from the Passport?

    If so, would you please provide instruction?

    I haven't done with pandora specifically, but you have to pair your phone to be an audio device along with being a phone.

    A lot of times, people forget that you have to pair twice to get all functionality of the phone but they tend to pair the phone, and overlook the audio part.

    Go to bluetooth setting you should be able to find a function to pair your passport as an audio device.

    I have an A5 so if you need help, let me know.

    Thank you for the encouragement. But, I couldn't get it to work.
    The MMI is set to accept media devices and phones via bluetooth.
    The phone is paired.
    I tried playing Pandora via wifi and bluetooth, tethered to the USB connection in the glove compartment and without it.
    I couldn't find the second pairing you referred to.

    If you have any additional help, it gladly will be accepted.

    When paired to your car, go into the bluetooth settings of the phone and long press the cars device, edit and then you will see the options. You may not have Bluetooth audio enabled or your car doesn't support it. You also have to make sure your stereo is set to the Bluetooth aux in or whatever mode is required for Bluetooth audio in.

    A BlackBerry typically does not use the USB port but may work that way if you enable USB host mode.

    Not all car audio systems support Bluetooth audio in. It yours does not, there is a BlackBerry Bluetooth device you can but and wire into the Aux in ports of your stereo.

    One thing I have issues with on my Audi is that it will connect but not activate music streaming automatically. You have to get to the device details and turn it on manually, not sure why it does that. It looks like the pic below -

    Awesome. It's a shame you have to do it every time you connect but better than not working at all.
