View Full Version : Looking for a bluetooth reciever

Hey guys, I'm looking for a bluetooth receiver/3.5mm adapter. Here's why.

Currently, I have my droid X hooked up to my car with a 3.5mm stereo cable going into the aux port on my car. I love the way this works. I can play mp3s, switch on pandora, or grooveshark or whatever I want & play music through the car speakers.

I am also fond of the way it mutes the music anytime I do voice commands, or when I get a call, or when Navigation begins audible directions.

I don't want that functionality to change, but I'm looking to dump the 3.5mm wire. I'm looking for some dongle/adapter that will RECEIVE the bluetooth signal from my droid x & convert it to the 3.5mm plug.

My aux port is inside my armrest/console so any extra microphones or "hands free" crap is useless to me. I simply want to stream audio wirelessly (So I wont have to plug up the 3.5mm jack to my phone every time I get in my car) Also, it would be great if the device stays paired to my phone & I wont have to open up the armrest & turn the thing on every time. I use the microphone on my phone, so I don't need a mic on this device.

Anyone know any devices like this? I have a 12v port inside the armrest as well, so powering the device will be a non-issue.

I'm looking for something like this: Amazon.com: Miccus BluBridge mini-jack Rx: Portable, Bluetooth Music Receiver with Stereo Output (1/8_Inch) for Home and Auto systems: Electronics (http://www.amazon.com/Miccus-BluBridge-mini-jack-Rx-Bluetooth/dp/B0038MA11U/ref=sr_1_14?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1298561886&sr=1-14) The only problem is that device turns off when not in use & I would have to turn it on every time I get in the car.

Intended use goes like this: get in car, slap phone in dock(Car home comes up) hit pandora/grooveshark/music player. Done. No turning things on/off, no connecting wires.

After doing some more research, this is probably what I'll go with:

Amazon.com: BlackBerry Remote Stereo Bluetooth Gateway for BlackBerry 8100, 8110, 8120, 8130, 8300, 8310, 8320, 8330, 8800, 8820, 8830, 9000 (Black): Cell Phones & Accessories (http://www.amazon.com/BlackBerry-Remote-Stereo-Bluetooth-Gateway/dp/B00170KUM0)

I just hope it auto-connects when I get in my car.
