Hi all. I have a 2013 PI Sedan.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Verizon and want to connect it but the Phone Button says "AUDIO MUTED." Does anyone know how to "UNMUTE" the Phone? This forum is the best. It contains so much information yet I was not able to find a solution. Thanks in advance.

No it is NON-SYNC. It is the standard radio unit. I hit the Phone button and it says Audio Muted.

yea, i believe that's just the standard protocol running as if you HAVE sync. it's saying the RADIO audio is being switched to mute; not your PHONE audio. without sync you can't pair the phone so it may look like something's trying to happen, but it's not

I looked into going with a bluetooth fm transmitter......haven't done it but it seems like they're well reviewed/functional products

I will perform a google and check it out. Ive been contacting Metra Electronics about twice a month to check on a dash kit for the 2013. Their catalogue says TBA. I guess they are actively putting one together for the 2013 and up.
