Here's How To Connect Your AppRadio 3 To A 30-Pin iPhone [Video]

If you've just got a new AppRadio 3 (SPH-DA210 or SPH-DA110) and have tried connecting an iPhone 4 or 4S using the 30-pin cable but haven't had any success getting it to work, you may want to watch the following video. YouTube user "alexandrews1981" has made the video showing what needs to be done to make the setup functional.

It's possible that most new AppRadio 3 devices get shipped with the "App Connection Setting" set to "iPhone (Digital AV)" by default to accommodate the newer lightning iPhones. Changing this setting back to "Others" fixes this issue as seen in the video above.

Make sure your emergency brake connection is made correctly. If you have a switch this needs to be wired correctly too in order to be able to view AppRadio Mode.

Good luck to those who needed this fix and thanks, Alex!


  1. thank you man! you saved me a lot more hours of frustrated searching...

  2. Disconnected my iphone 4 from bleutooth & unplugged it from the radio still can't change the settings to others!!
    What am I doing wrong?

  3. you need to scroll over to the 2nd home screen and click off on the speaker icon then it will let you change it to others

  4. after I change the speaker icon to off. I can't enter the settings menu. what now?
