General Android Usage Questions

Some of these may be specific to the Eonon series, but I'm guessing not. I consider myself a pretty decent wrench, but car audio knowledge is extremely limited.

1. I have both USB and the old wide IPhone connector. I'm assuming either will charge my phone. However, if I am playing music from my Iphone via Bluetooth, and plug it into the Iphone Connector (via Lightning Adapter), the Blue immediately stops playing. Is that normal?

2. What can I do with the Iphone connector except charge with it? Is there a way to play music from it?

3. What other non-music apps do people find useful? I have a BlueTooth OBDII adapter, so I will try Torque. Any other useful travel or cap apps out there? I already have Igo up and running, and that seems to be working well.

4. When I open up my personal hotspoint page on my Iphone 5, I see there are three options W-fi (which isn't working correctly on my new Eonon unit), Bluetooth and USB. Is it possible to hotspoint with a car system with anything but Wifi?

5. What are people using the USB cables for other than either basic charging, or using a mobile broadband USB modem?

Torque doesn't run on an iPhone. It's for android only.

Understood about Torque, I was referring to Android apps for the Nav system in question 3.
