    Bluetooth Car Radios

    Im thinking of getting a bluetooth car radio, just a couple of questions;

    1) Can you play mp3's from your phone onto one of these, and if so, are there any that don't require additional equipment?

    2) I know you can receive calls on them but can you also dial numbers using one of these?

    Thanks for any help

    Aslong as your phone supports A2DP Then you can play it through your stereo. With mine, i can connect to it and then when i get a call, i press the button on my dash, and it uses the microphone on the add-on thing to take the call, however if i wanted to dial a number i would have to do it through the phone

    Ive never heard of A2DP but i've got a newish phone (SonyEricsson W995) so i presume this will have it built in.
    Which model car stereo have you got just out of interest, and do you rate it?

    Have a look at the IO play kit, it does pretty much exactly what you're asking for, assuming your phone has A2DP/AVRCP and voice dialling. You can install it alongside your existing stereo.

    Yeah, most new phones have it now anyway.

    Ive got a slivercrest one, Got off ebay for £40 brand new, The sound quality when playing through bluetooth is the best, but it can do, but when using usb or sd slot, sound is quality

    Just looking at these IO kits on Amazon, never seen them before but they look pretty good.
    Are these for phone calls as well as streaming?
    The reviews vary quite wildly from 6 stars to 1 star. From brilliant sound to tinny horrible sound.

    Anyone else got one of these and care to review for me please?
