Default Making my existing Aux to Bluetooth Streaming

Please Login to Remove!

I have a CD Player that has Aux-in, but I need it to make it so it can stream music. Since the aux jack is RCA, I can still connect it to my ipod. But wires are a pain and I have my BB in my car most of the time and would rather use Bluetooth streaming so I can use the car's speaker as a speakerphone when I receive call. Thus eliminating the need for bluetooth headset. Besides, I rarely use my ipod, and if I do use my ipod, I would get the Bluetooth Streaming conversion for the ipod.

TIA.

Bluetooth audio streaming to your car... Does your car support the A2DP Bluetooth profile?

Actually no, I need to get something to make that Aux RCA cable to Bluetooth Streaming. So basically I need to convert what I have to be able to stream via bluetooth. It's not IPOD Specifics, but for my Curve to stream music to my head unit.

Head Unit with Aux Output > Convert to Bluetooth A2DP > Curve 8310

yeah you can do it, you just need a bluetooth stereo gateway. they can run off of either AC or DC and will take the audio from the blackberry and output it to RCA plugs. do a search on here for RIM bluetooth stereo gateway

I found Motorola DC800, but that's for home. The other one is Anycom FIPO, but that's for an ipod connector. So I have to get something to work with Anycom FIPO, not the best solution. I want something direct to connect to my existing aux cable that is already sticking out. Just need to plug that cable to a stereo bluetooth gateway.

TIA

the DC800 can be used in the car. it uses the same power cord as the Blackberry itself, so just hook it up to a car charger and you are good to go.
