Best after market blue tooth

Looking for input on setting up blue tooth in my F150. What brand works best?
Thanks.

I currently use a product put out by parrot.com. The item is MKI9200. This product allows you to stream music from apps such as last.fm or IHeart Radio, Stitcher etc. I've used this product will a Blackberry 9000--->9800--->Samsung Galaxy Note. The MKI9200 will import your phone book contacts into the setting so that when you receive a phone from someone in your contacts it will announce over the car stereo who's calling. When your phone call is ended your music or podcast will resume. I've had this product for 2yrs. now. This item was permanently installed in a 00' Ford Explorer.

Thanks for the response. It looks like a great alternative to the sync system (which I had forgot to include in my build). Did you install it yourself and if so how difficult of a job was it.

I had the Parrot installed by my radio shop here in Texas. Visit YouTube and search for parrot, so you see how the item works. My Eclipse CD5030 has BT capabilities just for the phone. The only downside going this route is that the BT will sometimes drop off. I use the parrot on my daily commute to and from work. Hope this helps.
