Not sure about your question. Why would you use Bluetooth? To send music wirelessly via a smartphone for example?

most bluetooth stereos allow for the taking of calls while driving, an AUX cable will not do this reliably.

USB??


only works in cases of applecarplay/android auto which you would pay a lot more for.
Bluetooth is just more convenient than aux in these days. Plus my phone doesn't have a headphone jack. I didn't realise how much I'd use Bluetooth until I got my current head unit, it's great!

Which model had Bluetooth?
If only cars still came with double din slots/radios as standard.

Can connect your phone so you can play music from iTunes, Amazon, Google, music stored on the phone, listen to podcasts, a sat nav or 1 of the radio stations you like that you can't get on DAB as it's American etc.
bluetooth streaming allows any music on your phone to play through the car as well as spotify, google music etc....
also gives you hands free calling

Mad not to buy one with Bluetooth really.

A lot more cash admittedly but I fitted one of these double din units in mine, runs full a full android OS for Satnav/Music etc...worth every penny.

"Connect up your iPod"! Seriously? This is the kind of stereo Marty McFly would buy for the Delorean.

For making calls? most stereos will only support audio out on the aux then you have the phones mic as your mic which is very poor while driving and picks up the car speakers for the other caller. Bluetooth is certainly the way forward here.

Yeah works perfect for calls.. Sound quality and connection... Tho it is the built in system that comes with BMW.
Can someone please tell me if it's suitable on a Skoda Octavia MK2 2005 reg?
10 stores within 15 miles all OOS
how do I find out if this fits in my fiat panda 08? I think someone has already changed the factory model to a pioneer previously

I have one of these running a compact version of Windows. it does everything but the sound quality is not as good as the likes of Pioneer, Sony,...etc.

Sound quality is excellent. some of the cheaper chinese Android headunits with older chipsets and 1gb ram are awful to use but the newer Intel sofia based units with 2Gb ram are excellent. Only thing I'd fault it is the lack of android updates from the manufacturers but sites like XDA Developers are useful for that.

Some cars only have single din space , some have double din space but with a single din stereo as the standard fit.

without knowing the model panda you have its hard to say but for cars that actually have space for double din but only have single din unit fitted you can usually buy a facia adaptor kit

something like this

Except that the B/T model is twice the price - and won't charge your phone at the same time

In car phone chargers are pretty cheap though. And the cost of getting caught answering your phone in the car is a lot more than the price difference of a bluetooth stereo.....
Hot depending on who you are. I have a single din sony bluetooth unit, i have connected my phone a couple of times to play music from it but then you need to charge your phone and sometimes mess about with settings. I am on pay as you so streaming is out of the question. I rarely get calls when im driving and if i do i just wait and pull over. If you have friends in the car that want to play music then it can be usefull to have bt, but aux is even simpler. Plus i find my driving standards suffer when others are messing about playing music in my car. A small 16gb usb stick is what i find most useful for just listening to music in car. So if your like me this would be fine.
Having thought I'd missed out on these, I re-checked and found one locally. Fitted in 2 mins and is completely amazing for the money. Proper iPhone/Android control, streams Deezer, etc. Very happy!
Thanks O/P!
cheers to those who advised, managed to get one fitted in ten mins and it's super
