Does anyone use bluetooth audio to stream music in the car?
how is it? Wondering about audio quality and if it hogs the battery.
Im getting a new car tomorrow that has it.

Thanks

I use the Belkin Car Audio Bluetooth thing with no audio issues.

It does drain the battery when streaming via bluetooth, so I keep a charge cable in my car.

Side note: If you jailbreak and have Hands Free Siri turned on the music sounds like its coming through a paper towel roll. (Hoping that's a reference people get from their childhood?)

I have it in mine and it sounds great. It can drain the battery, so I leave it plugged in while using it.

I have been using the Belkin CarAudio Bluetooth.
It works great for me.

The only issue I have is that I am not able to get the double tap button to skip song to work; the pause/play works fine...but not the skip.
I have a jailbroken iPhone 4 (5.01).

Has anyone else had this problem?

Thanks.

Edit:

I finally got the skip to work; I was double-tapping too fast...
