Bluetooth Audio stream (If you have 30pin ipod connector)

Keeping this short, If you have the ipod 30pin connector in your car and are in need of Bluetooth audio stream (YouTube, Spotify...etc).

Get this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I have it and can confirm it works. steering wheel controls also work.
If you have the Nav unit, the tracks will show up on screen (just what's currently playing, it won't show a playlist).

You must have at least one local song on your phone. I have the iPhone with the stupid U2 album already on it. so that was my local music.

So far, connection is instant, I don't have to wait a minute for connection to be made.


Thanks,

-Tochi

Thanks for this suggestion. I was contemplating a bluebus but the price has put me off a bit. I've been making do with a bluetooth receiver plugged into the auxiliary connection. I do listen to the ipod occasionally but it isn't going to last forever.

I just wanted to say thanks again. Mine arrived a few days ago and after panicking a bit getting it to talk properly to my ipod adapter all is working well. It seems to skip two tracks at once when I use the steering wheel controls but honestly just having it connect right away and not have to worry about charging it is a massive game-changer.
