    What must i do to play music from my iphone over bluetooth?
    I have connected my iphone to my cars bluetooth. My car has a Nokia bluetooth kit, and its around one year old (the kit). So i dont really know if my bluetooth kit supprots A2DP, but what should i do to get to play music if it does?

    the Iphone has A2DP support.
    This i found on apple.com:
    Stereo Bluetooth
    Connect compatible Bluetooth stereo headphones, car kits, or other accessories.

    Connect to your kit in the usual manner. Then open up ipod and play a song. Should automatically stream music through your speakers (worked like this on my pioneer unit)

    what pioneer unit do you have?

    I have a AVIC-F900BT and, can get the phone to work via bluetooth for calls, but haven't been able to get any music playing yet.

    I do have 3.0 official release

    Are there any buttons I need to press or anything once I've got it connected and go in to the ipod on the iphone? Anything to change audio out source?

    Not sure about how it would work on your model, mine is a 9800bt. When I paired the phone to the car as I normally do I noticed a little headphone symbol on the stereo display. Then I switched the source to bluetooth audio on the stereo. I pressed play on the ipod and it streamed through to the unit. Unfortunately the music skips every few seconds for some reason and I havent figured out why. I didnt change any settings on the iphone or the unit to get the streaming to start.

    Where was the headphones icon on the stereo display located? (ill check mine tonight)

    for the random skipping, go in to settings->ipod->shake to shuffle then turn to OFF:)

    The icon was next to the phone icon that appears when you connect the iphone, to the left of the display. The songs don't skip from one to another, the tracks themselves skip for a millisecond or so every few seconds ;)
