How can I get out of the pandora accessory mode on my phone so I can listen to pandora via Bluetooth. My car has the app but I can’t control the stations or anything so I don’t want to use that
mod edit: changing title for clarity
Hi @Kilkswitch! Thanks for posting.
Just wanted to confirm that you're not connecting to Android Auto or PandoraLink when connected to your Kenwood.
Also, you'll want to ensure the toggle 'Launch from car; is disabled and use only a standard Bluetooth or aux connection.
@Kilkswitch Some audio systems are equipped with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay or PandoraLink. This software allows you to control Pandora via the head unit rather than your phone.
If you're controlling Pandora through one of these systems the Pandora controls will default to the car's head unit when connected to your phone. There is not currently a way to turn this off.
You'll want to use only a standard Bluetooth or aux connection.
If you're using a standard bluetooth connection, and still having trouble, then try re-pairing the connection between your car and the phone.
To remove the pairing, please go into the Bluetooth settings menu on your phone, find the appropriate connection, and select "Forget this device."
Once you've done so, refer to the users manual for the steps to reconnect the car system to your phone.
