The widespread availability of smartphones and mobile devices means that the infotainment system in your Suzuki can connect to lots of different sources of music – which is either good news or bad news for families where everyone has their own music player (and musical taste).
But what is definitely good news is the fact that there are also multiple methods of connecting a device to the infotainment system.
The first way to connect to your car’s in-car entertainment and stereo system is Bluetooth, the wireless technology that enables the transfer of digital data from one device to another. You first have to pair your smartphone or tablet to your car, but once that is done, the car will recognise the device whenever it is in the vehicle and you can stream music.
An alternative way of connecting a device to your car’s stereo system is via a USB socket, which is positioned in most Suzuki's in the centre console. Inserting a cable into the socket that is then connected to the smartphone will enable, in many more recent Suzuki models, integration with the infotainment system using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Music is just one of the smartphone’s features that is then accessible via the infotainment system.
Another way of listening to music is via an auxiliary (aux) cable with a 3.5mm socket. Again, this wired connection enables music to be played through the infotainment system.
And let’s not forget the radio, with access to analogue and/or DAB stations, depending on the model and trim level of your Suzuki.
Controlling the music is possible either via the controller (a touchscreen, in some cases) in the centre console or buttons on the steering wheel.
