LG Revolution - No audio for Google Maps when connected to car bluetooth

Anyone know how to get audio through the car speakers?  I have a Kia Forte with bluetooth and it also has a USB and Aux connector panel, but I can't get turn by turn directions to come through the car audio when connected via bluetooth.  The device is detected and paired, but no luck.

 

I also tried using the Aux cable from the phone to the car's jack, but that didn't work either.

 

I had a friend use his Droid Bionic with the Aux cable and the turn by turn Google Maps with his phone worked fine, so I don't think it's the car's problem.

Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP)

This profile defines how high quality audio (stereo or mono) can be streamed from one device to another over a Bluetoothconnection. For example, music can be streamed from a mobile phone, to a wireless headset, hearing aid & cochlear implant streamer, or car audioor from a laptop/desktop to a wireless headset.

 

A2DP was initially used in conjunction with an intermediate Bluetooth transceiver that connects to a standard audio output jack, encodes the incoming audio to a Bluetooth-friendly format, and sends the signal wirelessly to Bluetooth headphones that decode and play the audio. Bluetooth headphones, especially the more advanced models, often come with a microphone and support for the Headset(HSP), Hand Free (HFP)and Audio/Video Remote Control (AVRCP)profiles.

 

 

You will have to use the Aux if your devices does not support the a2dp format, and as for if it should play music....  Yes music should come throught the cable as well, try pulling the headset out of phone slowly and see if you hear a hum through speakes because if the connection is good to radio it should give a little feedback when the device is being unplugged.

It only works on blietooth if the device and radio support a2dp stereo support, as for using the aux jack you have to make sure the radio is on the Aux input on the radio and the bluetooth is only set to handfree under the advance bluetooth settings... 

 

Try disconnecting the bluetooth and set radio to aux and see if it works..  Also make sure phon is turned up whule the cable is plugged in because the head phine sould have a seperate volime..

I'm not sure what a2dp is, I'll have to do a little research on it.

 

The radio was on the Aux input and I had turned off bluetooth.  I also checked to make sure the phone was turned up AND the radio volume was turned up as well, but I got no sound out of either.

 

If I load music onto my phone, should I be able to play music over the car audio system with bluetooth enabled/paired?  Or would I need to use the AUX cable for that?
