Bluetooth CD players

Postby bigmontana on Jan Wed 30, 2008 9:55 pm

I noticed the price is dropping on these and was interested in getting a bluetooth CD player, does any one have one, are they worth the money and if so what brand should I get.

Will that work? I don't even have an Ipod, and I don't even know which one to get, I'm so behind the times.

You can get a deck with an Ipod link for around $150. That will charge it and allow you to change songs with the deck. Though beyond hitting pause or next on the shuffle, you want to use the Ipod to navigate.

I don't have an I-Pod either, but yes, It will work, and no more fumbling around for CDs! :thumbsup: If you wanna run your existing stereo, you can get a mini FM transmitter and tune your car stereo to the transmitter. Or if you have cassete, they usted to (and may still) make a walkman (80's I-pod) adapter that looked like a cassete with a wire coming out.

My car stereos SUCK, but I don't care, cause I have a kick ass stereo hooked up to my computer! :D :D :D

:thumbsdown: for FM transmitters. The best route is to directly connect the mp3 player to the deck.

Agreed - Eric you can pick up an adapter to plug in your iPod to your stock HU. ValveFloat (Joe) just did this in his .:R32 and I think it worked out well. Something to think about at least.
