Aftermarket bluetooth and audio connection
#1
Hi,

I just sold my 2003 M2 and bought a 2010 M3. Unfortunately it was not equipped with bluetooth or audio connection.
I've seen some posts here regarding this issue, but I didn't find any final solution.
I found this: http://www.xcarlink.co.uk/product.php?pr...=12&page=1
Has anyone found a cheaper solution with just a bluetooth and/or usb and/or audio connection, that can interact with the original stereo?

Not a direct answer to your question, but on the subject of bluetooth, I treated myself to a new GPS - a TomTom 1005 - to go with my new Berlingo. To my surprise, it came with bluetooth ability. So although I haven't got bluetooth in the car itself, going through the audio system; I can use my phone via the GPS's microphone and speaker.

Of course, if you don't need a GPS anyway (or already have one), this is not a cheap solution. However, I thought it worth a mention.

Just double checked, but no connection for audio

That looks nice. When you play music via bt, is it just music from the front speakers?

How about one of these things you clip onto the sun visor?

That's a good idea, but I want to play music through it as well.

Thats a pain, I thought that it was a standard fitment. Not in Norway it seems.

Does it play music on all the loudspeakers?

I assume so, can't say I've checked the rear ones. I'll go check now.

Yes it does. I should´ve realised it would as it plays through the radio itself, so if that plays through all the speakers then so will the iO Play.
