    I have been doing some searching and can find plenty of bluetooth transmitters to plug into the headphone jack of any mp3 player, but I want to go the other way..

    I want to use my droid as a mp3/media player when in my car and eliminate the need to have the aux cable plugged into the droid... I want to plug the aux cable into the bluetooth receiver instead. Ideally, the bluetooth receiver would be built into a 12v adapter charger so i could just leave it charging all the time.

    I read some conflicting posts about A2DP, but since this is for music, that would be best as well.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks!

    Bluetooth add-on with music and handsfree

    We have a couple pieces of the Scosche UBRH left in stock that will do the job and add hands free to your calls. The UBRH is a Bluetooth receiver with RCA audio outputs and a microphone input for calls and does not require a physical connection to the phone. You will need either a factory auxiliary input on the radio or an aftermarket auxiliary input adapter so you can get the audio into your radio. We carry a ton of auxiliary inputs so if you need one just PM me your vehicle and I can look up some options for you.

    Also, the UBRH works with a home stereo so you can plug it into the back of your stereo and then as long as you are within 33 feet (the Bluetooth spec for distance) you can have wireless connection between your phone and home stereo for streaming audio.

    PM me for pricing as I don't have it on our site right now.

    Is audio quality via bluetooth the same as directly connecting a cable from headphone jack to aux in jack?

    It should be since it is only wireless data transmission and the data should be the same on both ends (send/receive), but I haven't personally tested the sound quality yet. I'm going to test one of these with my Droid over the weekend and I'll have an update next week.

    This eliminates the cords however you lose alot on audio quality! You lose some 75% of the quality having it broadcasted. If you have an aux port then do an aux to aux, thats the best sound you can get. For me sound quality is everything but if you'd rather have no wires and horrible sound thats up to you.

    hmm? Bluetooth is digital, there's no quality loss there. These aren't FM transmitters, they are receiving the bluetooth audio transmission from the Droid and converting it to a 3.5mm headphone jack, effectively. No difference in quality from just plugging directly into the 3.5mm
