    I'm not so sure why this is needed. I can play audio via bluetooth using nothing but my car and the iPad. It works just like the phone. Heck, I can even bluetooth audio my laptop with my car too.

    Perhaps older cars have no bluetooth?

    Any such Bluetooth adapter should work fine. I have a cheap generic one from China like the one you linked to and I have no complaints.

    How do you not even consider that perhaps OP's car stereo does not have built-in Bluetooth? It is a fairly new and typically non-strandard feature to have in cars. My 2007 vehicle does not have Bluetooth.

    I second this. The BTC450 works great. Very easy to install and it never fails to connect. I haven't had one problem with it. Got a new car recently with built-in bluetooth so I don't need it anymore, but it served me admirably for a while.

    I have a old tape deck in my 95 civic. Can this work with a aux adapter tape?

    I put it into both of my cars with factory Bluetooth because the mic on the BTC450 has superior clarity. Astonishing to me that an expensive car will have a fifty cent microphone in it.

    Some new Mercedes don't have Bluetooth unless you add a $1-2,000 option package.

    Would this work if I already have Bluetooth in my car and would the hands free controls work?

    My car only supports one connection currently and I would like to be able to connect my iPhone for hands free phone and my iPod for music. I'm guessing it won't fully integrate with my steering wheel controls so how does it work to skip songs and stuff?

    this device lets you setup a local wifi network in your car, and you can stream your music to it via airplay....much better sound.
