Hi
Has anyone been able to connect there android phone via cable and USB port to the 8 inch stereo so album art appears on screen.. If so what settings are you using on the phone. I can connect via Bluetooth no problem.. If my wife connects her iPhone via the USB port it automatically shows up on the screen as ipod and can play music direct from deezer Spotify etc

I don't know all the limitations of the 8" as I've got the 10", however have you ensured when you connect via USB that you change/choose the USB preferences on your phone?

Your certain that when you plug in you choose the file transfer or click on allow access on your phone's screen?

Does the phone indicate that it's charging when you plug in?

Which USB socket are you plugging your phone into?

I either stream via bluetooth which shows artwork or my car has Android Auto which also shows artwork.

Playing from my USB drive is hit or miss when it comes to artwork etc as you can read in some of the other threads on here
