Default Add music streaming for $18

Here's a neat solution that literally took minutes to set up. Nulaxy Bluetooth receiver ($17.99, Amazon) needs no wires and fits like a glove in the console compartment. I think the sound quality is excellent. Haven't had it long enough to comment on its battery life, but if needed on a trip you can charge it in the car with the supplied mini-USB cable. Neat device.

Device, connect to car with pin or the wire. Mini-USB cable for charging the battery.


Plug into AUX port using the pin and switch power on for pairing.


AUX Source selected, play whatever you want. Music is interrupted if call comes in.

Can you pair it for audio playback only and still pair your phone via the car's BT connection?

Yes, phone pairs to car and this device at same time. Incoming or outgoing call will preempt music while call is connected. Music resumes when call over.

Thanks! And you probably can also charge it in the car connecting it to the USB port.

Thatís a good idea! What is the name of the iPhone cradle youíre using there to position it so close to navigation screen?

This looks like the solution I've been passively looking for. Thanks for sharing 8)

I had something similar. Worked fine, but control is through the phone, not the PCM or steering wheel controls. You can get the Tune2Air (Bovee 1000), but it’s a lot more expensive (~$90), and you need the iPod cable. But, it does allow you to control music via PCM/steering wheel controls.

Thanks for this. So you can simply run a usb cable to keep it charged? Also, what is the phone mount and how is it attached?

Yes, as I mentioned in opening post you could charge the device in car using the supplied mini-USB cable. I'm taking the car on a multi-day trip next month so will report back on battery life. I bought the phone mount from t-design9 (http://t-design9.com/). It's a bit dear at $75, but is well made and works well. The mount swivels as well so you can turn it if desired.

My car has the basic steering wheel sans buttons. So far this inexpensive solution is working well for me.

Had a tune 2 air on my R8, wasn't perfect but it did what I needed it to do.

I got the below and it's working with great success. Can pair phone for telephone for calls as well as use this gizmo for streaming music. Took a little while to arrive from China, but I'm satisfied with it.

Amazon Amazon

Total Cost = <$3.00

I wish that there was an easy solution for those of us that do not have a USB port or a 3.5mm plug
