Default Android and Pioneer head units via USB

Try as I might, cannot get my Galaxy S5 to link to the deh-x8500 head unit via USB.

A google shows it's unsupported, which is a PITA as I'm not getting good enough sound quality with bluetooth streaming (spotify).

Anyone know a way round this? Other than switching to ipod and tethering that to the samsung...

TIA

Enable developer options, turn on USB debugging and then try switching between USB modes on the phone, PTP and MTP IIRC
