    Is anyone using a 3.5mm Bluetooth adaptor kit in their vehicle or have any experience with one? Looking for good or bad experiences and any brands that you either recommend or recommend I stay away from.

    Thanks

    Are you looking for a setup like this?:

    iPhone>Bluetooth audio signal>Bluetooth receiver>3.5mm connector>Car Stereo Aux IN

    If so, so am I.

    I'm going to order this one:

    http://www.amazon.com/HomeSpot-NFC-enabled-Bluetooth-Audio-Receiver/dp/B00G57CWZ8

    My reason for this is that it gets power from USB and doesn't have a battery. It powers up with the car and pairs automatically with your phone (if it's not powered via an "always ON" type cigarette lighter/USB plug).

    For me, the devices with a rechargeable battery are problematic as most, if not all, need a button push to initiate pairing and ours will be hidden in the center console.

    I won't have it installed until next week.

    Yes, something of that nature.

    I am currently leaning towards this model, as it has many good reviews and is recommended by TheWirecutter:

    After searching its reviews I've ordered this one instead of the Homespot. Owners of our particular car (that has built-in BT phone only) say that it works well with both BTs at the same time.
