    It seems like the most obvious thing we need with the new OS 3.0 is a really simple little bluetooth minijack that will plug into the aux port in car stereos. But I can't seem to find anything that simple!

    Ideally, it won't even have a mic since the iphone is mounted on the dash quite close the driver. Basically, it will just be a bluetooth headphone with a minijack instead of the headphones!

    Has anyone seen anything like this? I can't find it anywhere.

    can you please clarify, add more details, what kind of car, etc

    There's nothing wrong with his English, I understood him perfectly fine.


    I don't have any experience with them, but they are out there.. just do a search for [ "bluetooth car kit" ] or something. unless you're just wanting to do it to stream music to your deck... then you'd want to search for [ bluetooth "audio gateway" car ] ... but make sure that the iphone supports the bluetooth audio gateway before you do, I have no idea myself.

    It's not that hard, guys. Even the title of the thread is descriptive enough. Unless I am missing something he's looking for bluetooth receiver to aux-out. Instead of of plugging a cable into his iPhone, bluetooth it.

    Here are some links I found on Google.

    One

    err that was all. Not sure if it works for this.

    I'm not sure what's wrong with Dr. Cabrera's comprehension skills. The original email was not particularly elegantly worded but it seems to make sense.

    Yeah, I was googling for quite a while before I posted but I wasn't using very good search terms. These things are generally called bluetooth audio receivers. I've found a few things that will almost do everything I want.

    The best seems to be this one. It would be perfect if it had a USB port on it allowing you to charge the iphone when you want.

    Here's a neat looking one too. But you can't charge it while using it.

    Also, in case anyone's interested. Here's another nice looking one but again, it doesn't charge and play at the same time and some reviews say the sound quality is average.

    Anyway, sorry for the premature topic posting! I should have done some better googling.

    I think it's because the terms you are using are not descriptive enough

    you are looking for a

    Bluetooth audio receiver that can connect to a 3.5mm Aux input


    correct ?
