How to usb connect Google Pixel 3

I have a google pixel 3 and it has a usb c port. I'm not sure how to get a cable to go from my phone to the usb port under my arm rest in my car. I know I will need some sort of adapter but I don't know what.

Before this phone I had a iphone 7 that I plugged directly into my bmw. I don't have iDrive.

Please any help would be great because I loved the audio quality of my usb connection. The aux is inferior sounding.

You just need a USB C - USB cord. That's what I use for my pixel.

I just tried a USB c to USB cord and it charging my device but no music is able to be steamed. My car is just displaying "Loading..." when I press USB on my car display.

What brand cable did you use?
Do you have the pixel 3?

I tried the one below below from Amazon.

Also what year is your 1 series? Perhaps the older 1 series like my 2011 don't have the proper compatibility like the newer units. I'm not sure if my unit had MTP compatibility

I'm so confused. I might go back to the iPhone

I must have misunderstood your question. I stream via Bluetooth, not via the cord and I'm not it will do that. My car is a 2013.

Garage List
If your car does not have enhanced bluetooth (pretty uncommon before 2012), then you won't be able to access media interface of your phone via the center console USB port.
