Written by Psychedelic.FM on November 7, 2023
In today’s digital age, experiencing your favorite online radio stations while on the go in your car is a straightforward process. This article will guide you on how to seamlessly integrate online radio into your car audio system.
No matter if you’re embarking on a cross-country road trip or simply commuting around town, having a good music to accompany your journey can make all the difference. Fortunately, the options extend beyond traditional FM/AM stations, as you can now enjoy your preferred online Psytrance Radio station during your car rides. All you need are the following:
- A mobile internet connection
- A device capable of connecting to the internet
- A means to link your device to your car stereo
In some fortunate instances, these elements may already be seamlessly integrated into your car’s entertainment system.
Four Methods to acces Psychedelic.FM in your Car:
- Bluetooth Connectivity with Your Smartphone: One of the most common and user-friendly methods is connecting your smartphone to your car stereo via Bluetooth. To do this:
- Check if your car stereo has Bluetooth capabilities. Look for the Bluetooth symbol among the media options. If it’s not immediately apparent, consult your car’s manual for guidance.
- Activate Bluetooth on your car stereo and your smartphone. Pair your smartphone with the car stereo, following any on-screen prompts or codes that may appear.
Once successfully paired, you can stream from our app on your smartphone directly to your car stereo, making it a breeze to enjoy your favorite stations on the road.
- Utilize an Auxiliary Cable (Aux-In): If your car stereo features a 3.5mm aux-in port, you can use an auxiliary cable to connect your smartphone to the audio system. If your smartphone lacks a headphone jack, you will need a suitable adapter (e.g., USB-C to 3.5mm or lightning to 3.5mm) to facilitate the connection. Once the cable is in place, you can stream online radio through your smartphone’s browser or from our app directly to your car stereo.
- Car Infotainment System Apps: Some car infotainment systems allow you to download apps directly, enabling you to access online radio stations without extra devices. You can search for the Psychedelic.FM-app in your car’s app store. If the station doesn’t have an app or isn’t compatible, consider downloading the radio player app.
Please note that this method relies on the radio station being listed in these app directories. If not, you may need to use the Bluetooth connection option.
Side Note: It’s important to remember that listening to online radio in your car requires an internet connection. Some vehicles, like the Mercedes A-Class, Volvo XC90, and Toyota Prius, offer built-in Wi-Fi hotspots for a monthly subscription fee. If your car lacks this feature, you can use your smartphone as a hotspot or invest in a portable internet device for connectivity.
- Android Auto or Apple CarPlay: Android Auto and Apple CarPlay offer a convenient way to access your smartphone’s apps, including radio player apps, through your car’s audio system. Here’s how to use them:
For Android Auto:
- If your Android smartphone runs Android 8 Oreo, Android 9 Pie, or Android 10, you can download the Android Auto app from the Play Store.
- For smartphones running Android 11 or later, Android Auto is typically pre-installed.
- Check if your car or aftermarket car stereo is compatible with Android Auto.
For Apple CarPlay:
- If you own an iPhone 5 or a newer model, you can download the CarPlay app from the App Store.
- Ensure that your car is compatible with Apple CarPlay.
Once you’ve set up Android Auto or CarPlay, connect your smartphone to your car stereo using a USB cable. Your car’s display will mirror the selected app, allowing you to access various approved apps, including the Psychedelic.FM-app. You can easily choose and play your preferred online radio station through these apps. Avoid trying to control the app through your phone while driving for safety reasons.
With the widespread ownership of smartphones, most drivers can now enjoy online radio seamlessly in their cars. In most cases, if your car is equipped with a stereo, you have the means to connect your smartphone to it. Now that you’ve learned how to incorporate online radio into your car audio system, what’s your favorite track you’d like to hear?
