    Music from phone to Bluetooth then Bluetooth to car stereo via aux.

    I'm looking for a Bluetooth unit to put in my car that plugs into the cigarette lighter to recieve power. This unit will recieve music from my phone via bluetooth then output the music into my car stereo through a 3.5mm aux cable, I dont to use an FM transmitter. The unit should also have a 1amp usb port so I can plug my phone and charge it. Does such a unit exist. I did a good old fashioned Google search and found a few that are listed as no longer available as they were very old web pages.

    I found this 2 year old thread where someone with an OG Droid was looking for the same thing. I followed all the links there and every unit is either not exactly what I am looking for or is no longer available.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...m-car-aux.html

    Thanks.

    That sounds like a lot. You're probably better off buying a new stereo. I mean if you can plug in to the stereo with a 3.5mm cable why not just plug it into your phone?

    To eliminate having to plug the 3.5mm wire everytime, and also to make in car phone calls easier.

    While you COULD buy a new bluetooth enabled stereo with a USB port AND a 3.5mm jack, you could also get Amazon.com: GOgroove FlexSMART X2 ADVANCED Wireless In-Car Bluetooth FM Transmitter with Charging, Music Control and Hands-Free Calling for ANDROID, iPhone, Blackberry and Windows Smartphones: Car Electronics

    Not sure how much a new stereo would be, but with those features, I'm going to guess more expensive than $45 with free shipping. Mine should be coming today or tomorrow. Plenty of great reviews, and has everything both you and I were looking for. In case the BT doesn't work out so well, it has the 3.5mm output to use like a regular FM transmitter. Also includes a USB to Micro USB cable and port to charge your phone. Can't wait to try it out!

    Belkin makes this adapter Amazon.com: Belkin Bluetooth Car Hands-Free Kit for Apple iPod, iPhone, BlackBerry,and Android Smartphones: MP3 Players & Accessories that I have been thinking about. The device above transmits signal VIA FM, I never have great luck with those, Always a bit of static at some point creeps in.

    Only reason I didn't suggest one of these is that I had one and it was horrible. I went back to my wired(3.5mm cable) FM transmitter.

    Fair enough, but thats one reason I went with this, is because if the BT fails, it has a normal FM transmitter built in as well. But I have a friend with an almost identical device and his works great. These things usually are hit or miss though. Nothing wrong with buying a new stereo, but I feel like that'll be a few hundred dollars, which, frankly, I'd love to blow a few hundred on a new stereo but that just isn't an option right now

    I feel like I should add - if anyone is considering a new stereo visit Crutchfield Car Selector I am not so technically saavy beyond phones and computers and they give you everything you need plus super helpful support to install your own stuff. I wouldn't recommend buying DUAL though, at least the low end, 2x now my DUAL bluetooth module has died - a bit of a bummer!

    EDIT: SO I have been working hard on this lovely Friday afternoon and I just found this guy
    http://www.crutchfield.com/p_105KDX5...-KD-X50BT.html

    Special Android™ features
    Android™ and Blackberry™ users can control PANDORA® right from the stereo through the Bluetooth connection — no wires needed. And JVC's Android app lets you use your compatible Android phone's touchscreen to control the action using finger swipes and gestures — for example, make an upside-down "V" to change the source. So pop your Android phone in a mount, and you can reach down and skip a track without taking your eyes off the road.

    For $99 bucks!?

    I do have a crutchfield referral code: p54rb-pef6a-r27q3 if you buy at checkout is a spot to stick that in.

    I have this one for my car right now, originally bought it as a stereo bluetooth head set but ended up buying the lg tones.

    The ones in the link are useful because you can use any 3.5 mm connection.
