Inexpensive bluetooth reciever

Well I decided to purchase a Kensington LiquidAUX Bluetooth car kit for my expy.

It allows you to stream music via bluetooth through the AUX input.

I decided not to used the steering wheel attachment for the remote so I took the blank from the wheel custom fit it in.

Here are some pics..

I know that the iPhone does not fully support the AVRCP bluetooth profile, meaning the it doesn't allow you to skip music tracks back or forward or allow you to fast forward music tracks. Hopefully that will be resolved with the iPhone 4.0 OS due this summer. But if your phone or device fully supports AVRCP this little unit is great!

On the good side this device will allow you to do the following:
- play, pause, stop music with the remote
- answer phone calls with the remote
- hang up calls with the remote
- switch to using your hands with the remote
- listen to phone calls through your car speakers
- listen to music through your car speakers
- speak into the noise canceling mic found in the charging device

pretty nifty...got a link?

I sometimes stream using my Motorola bluetooth...but usually just jack the phone in. the loss of bass makes my Shaker 1,000 sound like crap.


wouldn't mind having that little toy if it isn't too expensive though

Kensington LiquidAUX Bluetooth Car Kit , Model K33428US - Meritline.com

For $25 bones shipped, it was worth the gamble. Works great for me!

Just and update, with the iOS4.1 update Apple finally added more support for th AVCRP bluetooth profile. Which means I can now fast fwd, rewind, and skip songs...

Wireless is the way to go... with having the TomTom app on my phone... navigation through the speakers and listening to my playlists is a snap!

How do phone calls sound? Had the mobile ease set up in the short Expy, now the new EL does not have it and the wife wants it back.

Just ok I think. I'm usually traveling with a 1 1/2 yr old so by instinct I usually take the call by grabbing the phone and routing the audio back to it.

I primarily use it for the music/video/slingbox apps on the phone.

The times I have used I think the user on the other end could hear me but I think I needed to speak a bit louder due to the mic being located on the plug for the cigarette lighter.


Works for me until I decide to upgrade the HU.
