    I don't think I'll get that high I'm using the Bluetooth to aux adapter very successfully for both Pandora and Google music. Plus with the Voice command in the car and google now (android siri) I just say "Voice" which puts my droid maxx into listen mode so I then say
    "Play artist song" and done.
    Bluetooth to Aux adapter? What's that? I've tried plugging in my phone to the aux port via the phones headphone port and it doesn't sound good at all. No volume and an audible hiss. How can I get this poorly designed radio (Base, non CUE) to stream music from my phone?

    Thanks for any help

    I too had this problem. I don't think it is a 4gb limit as much as a you can't fill completely or even mostly fill the SD card. I bought a 16 gb card and excitedly filled it up with music only to realize like many others that half of my music randomly disappeared. Then I started removing songs until it worked correctly. Eventually I ended up just buying another 16gb card and filling both cards half way up with music and they worked fine. Then I got tired of switching SD cards so I bought a used 32gb Ipod and haven't had any more problems. It is full and doesn't seem to have any problems at all. And as a plus the Ipod interface allows you to choose artist, playlist, genre, etc though the non-cue factory interface. I wish they would make the car compatible with Android as I am generally anti anything Apple. But it was worth the sacrifice for my music.

    OK, OK...
    Given that:
    1. You obviously want more than 4GB of music at your fingertips
    2. You're not getting that from a USB drive or SD card
    3. You're technically inclined
    4. You don't want this to be such a hassle...

    Go with an external solution, like a used iPod, and use that as a controller. I even dropped ALL my audio (books and music) onto a 1TB external usb drive, plugged that into a pocket router ( and ran that from under the passenger seat. Basically it gives you a wi-fi hot spot in your car with a virtual LAN sharing that big drive on your in-car network. Then with a tablet or your phone or whatever, you have whatever media you want and you can pump it through your car stereo either BT or aux. It worked well as a proof of concept. For way less than a replacement head unit, you could set this up or something similar.
