I recently purchased a 2005 ESV Platinum Caddy. There is an iSimple cord coming out of the glove compartment. I just bought a cable to use with the iSimple cord so I can hook it to my android phone to play pandora. The cord works but I can't get it to sync with the stereo. Any thoughts on how I can do this? I have nav but no CD and I also have XM but no subscription. Or are there any other ways to hook my phone up to play music through it? I'm stumped. Please help!

If the phone has Bluetooth you can get the blue stream add on for the media gateway the only phone I know that is controllable by the media gateway is the iPhone

Unsure what cable was needed to hook ur phone up but when i change source to xm, immediately there is a grace period to use the tune button to select other sources such as ipod or aux

Ok thank you! I'll try the XM again. I wish there was just an aux that I can select on my stereo. My stereo is the original, actually nothing fancy. Although I did notice it says aux when I source through to the XM. Nothing happens when it's in that selection though. Hmmmmm.....

Mine shows the same you have to turn the tune knob as soon as you select the gateway

are you sure it's isimple, there are other aux options, some have a small 3 way switch aux1 -original radio - aux2
That's what i have. mounted my switch in a hole at bottom of dash near steering wheel. take a look around it could be anywhere including inside the console.
