The 9ft "Dock'n Play" cable from iBOLT triggers "DockMode" in any Samsung Galaxy S4, S3, S2 or Note II. When DockMode is activated under "Settings-Accessory" the sound from any application (not phone calls, only app sound!) will go out through the microUSB connection, allowing the user to connect the 3.5 mm aux-out connection to any car or home stereo that features a female 3.5 standard "iPod/aux-in" jack.
By downloading and installing the iBOLT Dock'n Drive application from the Google Play store the phone can also be set to turn on/off Bluetooth and WiFi automatically when the cable "Dock'n Play" cable is inserted, highly useful for both home and car use.
Currently the following Android "dock applications" are compatible and can be set as "default app" to start with the iBOLT Plug & Play cable; iBOLT Dock'n Drive, TuneIn Radio, Slacker Radio, CarHome Ultra and Ulysse Speedometer.
The 9ft cord is long enough to allow the user to place the handset on the left side of the steering wheel if used with a car holder in the vehicle. Or, slide the phone into a bag and connect to a boom-box for playing streaming music from the phone when on the beach, boat, camping etc.
A great application is also to connect to home surround sound system and play music .For charging the phone battery the USB plug must be connected to a standard wall charger if used in the home-environment or to a car charger or USB port if used in a car.
iBOLT recommends to always keep volume at "max" on the phone and regulate volume on the stereo for optimal sound quality.

I thought that I would give the lead ago for £10 after reading a lot of iBolt reviews (£30 for the car holder seems steep to me!).
After a lot of reading and trial and error, I had pretty much just accepted that the Galaxy S4 just simply cannot play music through the Micro USB Port. Nothing would work!. Tried different cheap leads, rooting my device, changing storage types etc etc.
I had accepted that bluetooth was the only answer (using a Belkin bluetooth kit) however with music streaming and sat nav on + phone on charge, the battery would just drain (Plus wired were everywhere) and phone would heat up way to much on long journeys. Also the bluetooth static buzzing sound is annoying beyond belief after awhile. Would rather not bother with the hassle.
This has proved me wrong.
My Car has an AUX input and a cigarette lighter slot. Basically I wanted a way "Docking" my phone in my car in order to charge my phone as well as play media (Music / Sat Nav etc) without the mess of wires everywhere and setting everything up each time you set off.
I have used this in combination with an average samsung desktop phone dock:
The iBolt lead plugs into the back of this stand. My phones switches to "Dock Mode" automatically when connected and everything just works perfectly.
After long journey's my battery charges fast and the sound quality is flawless. Plenty of cable means I can hide the wires quite nicely in my car and now the phone dock looks part of the car. Impressed with it!.
I have an AUX input in my car and a USB adapter for a cigarette lighter.
I have spent countless hours trying to find a method of playing my music in my car with my car other than using bl.
The actual operation for putting a Samsung Galaxy into dock mode is very simple, a single specific (420k iirc) resistor to pin 5 of the microusb, having several attempts at making my own connectors and failing to get a reliable audio signal, I bit the bullet and ordered the iBolt. At the time, it was the only premade docking cable available. 10 months on and I'm happy to say it's still working perfectly.
For a relatively expensive cable, it doesn't really have the feel of quality. The connectors are chunky and feel cheap, with untidy trimmings from the injection moulding. Nothing to worry about, they are solid, but it doesn't feel or look anything like a premium product. The cable itself is far too long for my needs, and I suspect most other peoples too. It is also very stiff and prone to retaining kinks/bends (of which there are many from the initial packaging, so don't think you can treat it carefully and be fine). There is no velcro tab or winder to hold any extra tidy, something which is worth adding if you don't plan on using the full length, or permanently routing it discretely behind your dash.
The excessively long length isn't just a cosmetic issue. The electronic effect of having a much longer cable than required is bad news for both charging and sound quality. It seems that most of the negative reviews are due to a ground loop, caused by the charging and audio sharing the same common ground. This will be evident as a high pitched whine while the engine is running. Easily remedied with the addition of a ground loop isolator.Read more ›
