    Hello, I am looking for bluetooth audio receiver to stream music from my iPhone 5S's Spotify app to my car's audio system.

    Background: I have recently bought an older Audi car. It has MMI playback system that is compatible with old 30 pin iPhone cable and also USB. So I can play my music already using 30 pin MMI input with lightning to 30 pin adapter. I want to find a way how to play my Spotify music without having to plug in my iPhone.

    - The Bluethooth audio receiver needs to be able to stream music from iPhone 5S's Spotify app.
    - The Bluethooth audio receiver needs to be plugable to and powered by USB, Lightning of 30 pin cable.
    - I want to control Spotify playback by buttons on stearing wheel. Therefore, I believe, Bluetooth to AUX adapter is not an an option.
    - The car can connect to iPhone for bluetooth calls so I do not need any call capabilities. Just music streaming and playback control.

    Does anybody have experience with solution that would fit? Can you recomend something?

    your basic "run of the mill" $100 receiver (with bluetooth) will do the job. And they will come with usb ports as well for the charging aspect (use your own 30 pin adapter cord of course)
