Anyone have a Mito paired with a Galaxy S3? My blue&me works fine but can't get the music to play with the usb lead.

I'd imagine the car needs the phone to mount in mass storage mode (which makes it look like a USB stick to whatever it's plugged into) which isn't supported with the S3. The S3 uses MTP mode instead which is very poorly supported so far as I can see with both Windows Media Player and Songbird leaving me with extra work to do after syncing (which rather defies the point of syncing).

I think this is true of all Android phones now as the feature was changed in a software update, it's destroyed one of the big points of having an Android phone. When it first happened Google said it was because of the lack of an SD slot on the first phone it affected and that other phones would support it, but that's certainly not true of the S3 even if you put an SD card in it.
