  1. Hello, my name is Samuel and I have a quick question: I have a 2017 Toyota Camry and I am able to connect audio with an iPhone via wire, but not with a Samsung phone. I was trying to find out why, and if there is a way to connect a Samsung phone to the car via wired connection. The reason I’m interested is because a wired connection carries a higher audio quality than a Bluetooth connection.

    Thank you for your help!
