    So this week I went out and excitedly purchased my iPhone 6s. I previously had the 5s.

    Now I have Spotify premium and with my 5s I could hook my music into my 2011 Nissan Sentra using a usb hookup directly made for iPods. Spotify worked great and I loved being able to switch through songs on my steering wheel. (Trust me I wish I had Bluetooth though)

    Fast forward to last night, went out to buy groceries and plugged my phone on to try Spotify out. The screen on my radio said no song was playing despite me clicking play on Spotify and trying it out.

    I figured Apple might be trying to push Apple Music for the 6s so I downloaded that and ran into the same issue. I figured it's a long shot but would anyone know a fix for this (other than using a stereo aux cord). Also worth noting is that my friend has an iPhone 6 and it played just fine in my car with the hookup.

    Why not try and get tune2air WMA1000 model plug to 30 pin to USB cable. I got this from [redacted] No need to manually plug your phone everytime. You can stream music via bluetooth and can play music apps like Spotify wirelessly just need to have at least one song in your iPod/iPhone music library. Very good sound quality and am happy with it.

    This is the best solution, I wasted a week talking to apple support and car dealer:
    Thank you all.

    "No song" - can't play Pandora or Amazon Music or other online service...

    I had this exact problem with my Iphone 5s after I removed all of the U2 songs iTunes downloaded to my phone - they were the only songs I stored on the phone - and having no songs apparently is the problem.

    The phone apparently needs at least 1 song stored on it, or it confuses the car system. I added 1 free song from iTunes and I can again play Pandora through the car system with all the normal functionality.

    Too bad it took 2 weeks of searching, booting, rebooting and struggling to figure this out.

    This worked on 2012 Honda Accord with my iPhone 5s connected via USB connection. IOS 9.3.2

    FINALLY all is back to normal.

    And I get it - it's not an iPhone 6, but after struggling for so long and finding no help anywhere, maybe this will work on iPhone 6 as well - the issue sounds similar.

    I had to register just to tell you that was flipping hysterical. Only an Engineer or Developer thinks that way. Thanks for the laugh!!!

    On behalf of automotive software developers everywhere, I'm sorry.

    7-10 years ago, when a lot of this software used in cars was likely written, the industry had no idea that the same interface that let it talk to iPods (which are essentially paperweights unless they have songs on them) would be carried over to internet-connected supercomputers that can stream anything and don't need to have songs stored on them. Suddenly, that graceful handling of an edge case turns into a pain point for a good chunk of users.

    Now, if only we could wave a magic wand and fix all of the ones that alphabetically select the first song on the device on every plug in... (sorry bout that one, too)
