Hello everyone.

I connect my iPhone 3G through the Harman-Kardon Drive+Play to my car audio with no problems. As I get a call, I hear the ring through the car audio, as I accept the call and hit the speaker icon it defaults to the iPhone's built-in speaker. Has anyone read or discovered a solution to channel the speaker-phone audio the same way as music audio, through the connector and ultimately through the car audio?

There must be a way!

Thanks all!

    I think that you should not hit the speaker button. The audio is already routed through the car stereo. At least that is how it works when I connect into my car stereo with a hard-line to the earphone jack. Try it dialing into your own voicemail or something to see if it works that way for you.

    Yesterday I was listening to music on from my iPhone in my car with just a regular audio cord and my wife called and she could hear me loud and clear. But later that night I tried it again and she could not hear me at all. I do not know what could be the problem. I suggest making sure the cord is fully inserted into both the iPhone/Aux port.

    Yes, I know it works through the stereo/headset jack, but my iPhone is connected to the car radio through an iPod cable. It seems as if phone call audio will only be routed to speakers via stereo jack or bluetooth, but not via the ipod interface cable. Which *****.
    But there must be a work around!
