    excuse me if this has been asked and answered, however, how do I plug my Android into my radio?
    I have an AUX jack, and I tried to just plug my phone into it, but nothing came out.
    I'd appreciate any advice.
    I'm running an Android 10.

    On my radio, after I connect the Aux cable, I have to cycle through the various modes AM/FM1/FM2/Weather/Bluetooth/Aux.

    Best I have is google the manual for the radio because they are all a little different.
    I have a old Panasonic on it you just tap the volume knob.

    Mine will plug into a USB port from the lightning connection on an iPhone, and immediately recognizes it.

    The XM goes to the front 3.5mm input jack and you cycle through to ‘aux front input’.

    Stereo is a Panasonic something. I punched the serial number in google to get the manual to help figure out, we’ll - everything on it.

    You can also post a picture of your stereo and maybe someone here also is using that radio.
    I had a Freightliner radio and I could never find the brand or model name until I was walking around a dealership and saw the same radio in a display. That radio had an Aux port and I never found a way to listen to it.
