Bluetooth in the Car


By integrating this wireless functionality into your car stereo, you can hear callers' voices over your car speakers, see incoming call information on your stereo's display, and possibly stream audio from your device to your stereo. Some universal Bluetooth adapters require no interaction with your car stereo. Most importantly, you can keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel while talking to callers.

Many Bluetooth devices also make it possible to stream music from a Bluetooth capable smartphone, tablet, or other device to your car stereo.

There are three ways to use your Bluetooth device in your vehicle:

  • A universal Bluetooth kit that works in any car
  • A vehicle-specific Bluetooth car adapter that connects to the factory radio
  • A new stereo with built-in or add-on Bluetooth capabilities




Universal Bluetooth Kits -

These devices work in just about any vehicle. Some are simple, stand-alone devices with a small speaker and microphone that clip to your sun visor or mount on the dash and don't interface with the car stereo at all. These are nice because you can move them from one vehicle to another.


Vehicle-specific Bluetooth adapter -

is an interface that connects to a vehicle's factory stereo. Installation typically involves removing the factory radio, connecting the cable to the vehicle wiring and the radio, and then installing a microphone for hands-free calling. Caller info shows up on the factory stereo's display and you answer and place calls using the stereo's controls. An included microphone clips onto your sun visor or mounts somewhere on the dash, and you hear callers over your car stereo speakers.

This is a good option when you want to keep the factory radio. Although it involves some installation work, you end up with a Bluetooth system that's fully integrated into your car stereo for hands-free phoning. Many of these systems can handle music streaming, too.


New car stereo that includes Bluetooth! -

Depending on the stereo you select, you can control many of your smartphone functions and music streaming from your stereo. When you select a radio with built-in Bluetooth, you don't have to deal with installing a separate hideaway adapter box. somewhere on the dash, and you hear callers over your car stereo speakers.

This is a good option when you want to keep the factory radio. Although it involves some installation work, you end up with a Bluetooth system that's fully integrated into your car stereo for hands-free phoning. Many of these systems can handle music streaming, too.
