    What are my options for listening to Spotify in my truck? I've got an Android phone (LG G3). New HU and listen through Bluetooth?

    Run the app on your phone, plug in the 3.5mm jack into the HU.

    Upgrade the HU, use 3.5 (better audio quality) or BT (poor audio quality)

    I bluetooth into my HU and the controls on the HU change the song, pause, and display info. I don't think it favorites anything and the audio over bluetooth has a noticeable lag (noticed when I was watching a movie on my phone, unnoticeable otherwise). Also changes to night mode to match my interior lights when I flip on the headlights, nice touch.

    For clarification it's the JVC KW-HDR81BT. (I think, looks just like it)

    Nah, you can download and store music to play later with Spotify. Plus I actually have unlimited data ;)

    Stupid me.. totally forgot I had an AUX port on the back of my (aftermarket... 5 years old) HU... So this turned out to be much cheaper than I originally anticipated.

    And in regards to data, like mentioned above, it's all available offline.
