  • Questions unAnswered : 3

#1 Is this stereo Bluetooth compatible with LG phones? Also is it compatible with Google Play Music?
The unit has Bluetooth capabilities so you can play music if your phone has Bluetooth.

#2 How do I pair my iPod because every time I try it says memory full
You have to access the Bluetooth menu and delete a device or clear the memory. The Bluetooth menu won’t activate unless the green wire in the back is connected to the parking brake (per instructions) but any ground should work. I didn’t hook mine up initially, then had the same problem you did. I the parking brake wires were hard to access so I connected it to the ground side of an after market auxiliary light switch.

#3 Anyone know how to make the videos play with a usb keeps telling me unplayable file?
The video feed is not for video files. It is for a backup camera.

#4 How do you reset the Bluetooth slots?
The button will not work to reset Bluetooth, if you didn’t hook up the parking brake wire. When you initially installed it. Parking brake wire goes to ground.
