Does the LG G3 work with UConnect?

Hi,

I currently have an iPhone which I play through my GC's Unconnect via USB cable. I was wondering if the G3 would be able to play and display my music through USB as well? I know some Androids won't let you do that and would like confirmation before buying that phone. Thanks.

Re: Does the LG G3 work with UConnect?

Not sure what year car you have but I am driving the 2012 model and I am able to Bluetooth to the car with my Nexus 5. If you are not familiar with the phone it is basically the exact same phone as the LG G3 with a few less features and sold through Google and not heavily marketed through LG.

I pretty much only play music through Google Music All Access or through Sound Cloud. The song names and everything related displays on the car screen. Oddly there is no skip track button but I am able to do so with the steering wheel rockers. It took me a month of manually doing it on my phone before I went to turn the volume up, hit the wrong button and changed the song!

Now I do not ever actually have the physical song file on my phone not including the streaming services I use. Although when I plug in into USB to charge and my phone was set to media usb mode it does pick up some random audio files on my phone. No other advice I can give for you about this...

Phone calls can be made and all my contacts synced. It is not the best voice system but I use it on occasion.

Tl;dr. Yes your G3 will work. Bluetooth with streaming service and phone calls, possibly physical audio files with usb as well.

I have a 2014 Limited. I heard it's different phone to phone, when it comes to Android atleast. I also read that it depends if the phone is plugged into USB if the car picks it up as a "USB Mass Storage Device" or not. I'm not sure if all Android phones let you select an option to switch it to this mode; I never owned an Android. For instance, my girlfriend's Note 3 does not let you play music when you plug it into the USB, but it does charge it. Regardless, I appreciate your feedback and input, but would still feel better hearing it from a LG G3 user.

Completely understandable and no problem.

You can go here and look your phone up just as easily.

Uconnect™ | Select your Vehicle

I am not sure what carrier your have and might have to get the technical name for your phone like LG 20393209230...

Good luck.

Have the G3 and UConnect in 2013 JK and it won't pair. Easily paired with my nexus 5. Going to try deleting my old connections and pairing the g3 again tonight. I wish it was basically the same phone nadim77389, I miss my nexus except for the better camera and screen on the g3.

That's because they aren't really the same at all. Now the nexus 6 and lg g3 are rumored to be very similar.
