    So i have an idea..i want to try but thought i would ask some experts and the "experts"... So what i am wondering is ,i have a Casio Gz'One 4Glte (C811) phone and was wondering if there was a way to go MicroUSB to RCA with this that was a mirror look screen or Bluetooth to RCA.. My ultimate goal is to get my phone to show up on my Pioneer 3500BHS so i can run maps on it and other apps. I know i wont be able to use the touch screen but watching videos from my phone or Maps or viewing pics would be really nice... I dont want an Iphone just to have the ability to connect. My phone will connect to Bluetooth audio,phone, and pandora.. I know there has to be a way to do it.. Or if you have any other ideas let me know..

    It is not as simple as a plug and play. The radio and the phone have to be able to communicate. This cannot be done over RCA types of connections. You will need a communication method like USB on your radio to do this.

    Then IF your radio is cabable of communicating with your phone, you can simply connect VIA the USB. If it does not connect, then you are out of luck.

    I don't know if it will work, but there are adapters out there that will allow you to physically connect your Casio phone to your Pioneer. Mirroring your phone's screen on your Pioneer's screen depends on whether your phone will send the signal or not. Some phones will, some phones won't. But if it is possible, you'll need a micro usb to usb adapter as well as a usb to rca adapter. They're fairly cheap so why not just give it a try? (You can probably find them cheaper, I just randomly picked the first ones I saw)

    If using these cables works, you will not be able to control your phone from your Pioneer.

    Nice! Yeah, its definitely worth a shot since its so cheap. Its probably a good thing you don't have an iPhone because then you'd have to buy more expensive adapters.

    Dang man. I was really hoping that would work out for you. The only other thing I can think of suggesting is to get a new phone. I have an iPhone 5 and am able to mirror my phone onto my HU. However, I had to spend a lot more than $5 on some cables. One of the adapters I bought is only made by Apple so it was a lot ($50). If you ever decide to go this route, let me know.
