Then when you found out this was not possible you were bummed - think again. It is very simple to get your iPhone streaming Pandora with the same quality sound as your iPod, without having to buy a thing. Here's how:
1) Create a blank audio track about 1-2 hours long, and name it Pandora. Then click on this track and open the get info tab by right clicking on the track. Then click the options tab and set the volume adjustment to 0%.
What you have done is created a track that when played on your iPhone will open the iPod audio channel but will not output any sound.
2)Create a playlist on your iPhone called Pandora and place the track you've made into that folder. Once transferred open the track on your iPhone and select the repeat/loop icon.
3) Plug your iPod into the USB port and navigate your Bose system to the iPhone. Then open the playlists folder entitled Pandora and select the track "Pandora". The Bose system will then play anything that comes from your iPod, and your iPod now has an open audio channel on it and will stay open until you manually interrupt by hitting stop on the iPhone.
4) Grab your iPhone, press the menu button and open Pandora
5) Enjoy streaming audio from Pandora on your beautiful Infiniti, never a reason to be bummed!
Note 1: If you get an error message on your phone "volume not available", or the audio stops playing, just press the source or AUX button on you Infiniti and cycle through back into the iPod and restart Pandora, this will reset everything and get it going.
Note 2: If you have it play for a while and then hear nothing, you have run through your Pandora playlist. Simply reopen the track "Pandora" and continue to enjoy!
Note 3: Make sure you iPhone is not on vibrate.
testsat wrote:Actually, you do not even need to create the blank file. Simply do this:
1. Plug your Iphone into the USB connection
2. From the G37 iPod console select any song from your Iphone. (I usually select song shuffle).
3. On your Iphone launch Pandora or Youtube or any app that you want to hear audio from.
4. The original song you selected to play will fade away and you will hear the audio of the application that you selected on your iPhone.
In Canada you can not get best of Siruis on XM so I use this method to hear Siruis through the app on my Iphone.
One odd and dissapointing thing is that if you lauch an app with video (like youtube) you will hear the audio in the car speakers but the video may not play on your Iphone. I tried it parked with parking brake.
What a drag...
You both deserve a cookie! Awesome job guys, I went with option two, testsat's, due to the ease of just opening up a song and pausing it, but either way, prime! Thanks!
FINALLY, I CAN STREAM MUSIC FROM GOOGLE PLAY MUSIC ON G37
I own a 2013 Infiniti G37x premium and until reading this forum, was stuck using a Bluetooth radio transmitter to stream Google Play Music because my Infiniti doesn't have the NAV package (which allows Bluetooth music streaming...stupid I know).
Attention Android Users
I am not an Apple fan and currently own an Android Galaxy S5 'Neo'...here's my work around though unfortunately you will still either need an Ipod Touch or an old Apple IPhone converted to an Ipod Touch to make this work.
In my case, I took an old Apple IPhone 4S that wasn't being used and removed the old Sim card then did a factory reset through ITunes...(you can see demos on YouTube).
Since the IPhone 4S and Galaxy S5 'Neo' share the same size phone Sim card I was able to insert the sim from my phone and activate the IPhone 4S where I then downloaded Google Play Music. The old IPhone is now an Ipod Touch device!! Be sure to (a) turn it on plane mode so it doesn't try to access the mobile network (b) remove the sim card and place back into your Android device (c) then activate Wi-Fi availability (d) Download Google Play music to your Ipod (e) Set up a mobile Hotspot from your Android to the Ipod.
Here's the trick for Android Users:
1.) Turn on your internet mobile hotspot on the Android device
2.) Pair your Ipod Touch (or old converted IPhone) to the Android mobile hotspot. This will allow the Ipod to use the WiFi from your Android phone.
3.) Having downloaded 'Google Play Music' to your Ipod from the Apple App Store as mentioned above, you will now be able to stream music from your Ipod via Google Play Music using the data plan on your Android Phone!
4.) I followed the rest of the above thread, by creating a Playlist in ITunes called Infiniti and placed one song there.
5.) Having plugged in the USB connector and Ipod device while my car was running, it immediately connected the Ipod (If it doesn't connect hit the AUX on main console). I then opened the Music app on the Ipod device and selected the music file from the 'Infiniti Playlist' I created, hit play and turned on 'repeat' (Though it would appear once you start playing music from Google Play Music it pauses the song so I'm not sure if 'repeat' is necessary but doesn't hurt).
6.) Open up Google Play Music on your Ipod and away you go!
In summary: My Android Device is a WiFi hotspot allowing the Ipod device to then stream Google Play Music on the device. What's more, the display on my Infiniti shows the Ipod connected and all song, artist and song time counter information!
Thank's Gansha and Testsat and all who contributed! FINALLY I CAN LISTEN TO MUSIC....THANK YOU SO MUCH
