    It isn't totally related to your post but the thing you have in your car looks cool. Where does it connect? I'm considering something like it for my car, since it is around the same age as yours.
    No problem. A friend gave me a Blackberry visor mount Bluetooth speaker and I was suprised it could be used with my iPhone. Model VM-605. There are others like the Jabra visor mount speakers and another friend has one of those as well.

    I just go to FM radio on the car, then press the FM button on the visor mounted speaker and it will say something like "go to 88.5 FM," once you do, open Spotify up on the iPhone and click a song, that's it. All of your car speakers are now connected to the Spotify app. Some bass and treble adjustment is necessary as it can sound a little "tinny" in my car but I can get sounding pretty good.

    Side note: someone else I know has a 2013 Toyota tundra truck and he has an iPhone 6, that vehicle has built-in Bluetooth as all new cars do now I'm sure, he hits one button on the steering wheel and it automatically connects to his iPhone and its seamless. He doesn't even have to go into his pocket and play with his iPhone to set it up on the app or anything. Come to think of it I think he just uses the iTunes songs that he bought from Apple to clarify, he doesn't use Spotify. There's no lag it's just instant music and he can use his steering wheel controls to go to the next song. To be honest I haven't even tried that on mine yet I'm not sure if it works with Spotify, I usually just set mine to a longer playlist and let it run so I don't have to mess with the phone when I'm driving.

    Well... You can change the setting that it only syncs via Wifi vs cellular, So just do it once a week at home. If it updates then it will use your WiFi and not you data.

    You are awesome for this, thanks! I'm going to look into it. I'm guessing that you adjust the bass and treble on your iPhone?

    No the bass and treble has to be adjusted on your car stereo settings. I mean I guess you could try different equalizers in the Spotify app itself but I just do it on the car. Come to think of that yeah I should try that in the Spotify app there's different equalizer settings and try that instead of trying to adjust the car settings all the time. Ha ha as soon as I turn Spotify off and go back to regular radio the sound blows my ears so yeah might be worth it.

    I actually have everything for cellular turned off for Spotify. I just don't want to be surprised with data useage when I take the 3 1/2 hour drive to my hometown.

    I'm not sure about that setting but here are some of my settings the way I have it, and by the way I have no idea what CrossFade means.....

    New songs will stay in pending until you are on wifi and then they will download. Only thing that will play is your downloaded song. Radio can use data though.

    Crossfade is just that. What ever time you have it set to. When song A is finishing it will fade into the next track.

    Absolutely loving the Spotify app, the only issue now is there's one playlist that I cannot UNdownload to save some storage space. It is also a playlist I don't want to play in the car anymore so I do not need it Downloaded.

    I was able to undownload several other playlists so not sure why this one is stubborn, but it's not a major issue or anything.

    My Spotify app was 1GB to 500mb's now after cleaning it up.

    I never committed to that because you have to enter a credit card number, but my buddy uses it and he loves it.

    I like Spotify because I can get it added to my regular cell plan through Rogers if I want to at the end of six months I don't have to enter any credit card numbers on the Internet.

    I have bought a fair share of songs through iTunes though.

    As a DJ my music library runs to gigabytes and as I have Plex set up and all my music imported into Plex I can stream it anywhere meaning I have no need for Spotify free or Premium.

    I have a free account I use to share what's hot playlists on my website but I don't use it to listen to music. And as for a premium account I don't see the point in paying to stream music I already own through an app I already own too.

    In the old days I used to get records and CDs through the post. These days it's downloads.

    I do miss spending hours in the local record centre listening to the latest white labels picking out songs I thought were good and would work well for me but that's the advancement of technology I guess

    I bet you're talking about Colombia house, my buddy used to get hundreds of cassettes from there! There is still ONE place left in my city that sells a lot of Vinyl, cassettes and CD's. They actually do pretty well.

    I have a question, I heard that they never really stopped making Vinyl completely because DJ's were always able to get discs to spin but they seemed to have ended it to the general public. But SUPPOSEDLY Vinyl could have always been ordered in the last 20 years, but people didn't know about it?

    Here in the U.K. you've never not been able to get vinyl. True it disappeared from main stream view and for a time was available only in specialist shops but it's enjoying a real resurgence right now.

    Lots of DJs now will either use laptops and controllers or CDJs now which gives vinyl like control of CDs but vinyl is still available. People say vinyl provides a deeper, warmer sound than the compressed digital audio that's in MP3 files.

    What I'm going to do is wait seven days before I toggle the online off-line toggle and that should wipe out all my saved playlists and that should theoretically delete that one playlist that I can't UNdownload

    Even after switching to a new 7, and a new plan under contract I was relieved that I didn't lose the remaining 4 months on my Spotify Premium, it will just continue until the trial runs out. Awesome.

    For becoming a Spotify Premium user you need a credit card number and personally i have never had any problems when cancelling it.
    They playlists you create or you follow will not destroy, doesnt matter if you are premium or free.

    OK so my Spotify premium app, I removed it a couple times because it grew pretty big, I also deleted half of my playlists I don't really have that many, and I didn't download any songs to play in the car and it's still 1.1 gigs. It used to be around 500 MB without downloading any songs to the device to play off-line in the car.

    Why is it getting so fat?

    I'm going to see if Rogers can tack it on to my monthly plan after the six-month trial, that way I won't have to keep buying iTunes cards.

    Another thing is I'm curious since I have Apple Pay now, am I able to buy it that way from the App Store? I'm still not clear on that.

    Ok I got my Spotify app back down to 75 mb's but it had to be removed a couple times and then it took. Weird.

    Even downloading just 4 songs from a playlist doubled the required space to 150 mb's so it doesn't take long to blow through a lot of storage space with this app.

    Still dig it.
