How do I play music thru speakers from phone?

I have a rzr M verizon phone and have downloaded music on it. What cable do I need to connect to the car (2013 focus) to play that music on the car speakers...and do I need to be in a special menu in sync? Thanks

1. Your dealer should have shown you all this before leaving the parking lot!
2. Open up your manual and read!

USB Cable you normally use for charging/syncing with computer if you have SYNC or MFT. If you don't have either you use the Aux port and use the headphone jack.

If your phone is connected, when you use the voice command button, say "Bluetooth audio" then when you get the next prompt, say "play"

Go into the phone settings and there should be a "manage phone book" option, select that and switch over to modify phone book, scroll through the options and I believe auto download/download phone book is in the options.
