Audio Jack to Bluetooth to receive Audo transmission from my iPhone 3g. Possible?

Asked by Jamkas (195 points ) May 26th, 2009

I have a 08 Ford F150 and I have a direct AUX input, but I’m sick and tired of wires and would to see if I could get a Bluetooth receiver that plugs into the AUX port. So I can pair my iPhone to that and stream music right into the direct line. The problem is I don’t know what I need.

The iPhone doesn’t support Bluetooth A2DP yet. That should change in a few weeks or whenever iPhone OS 3.0 comes out. As of now I don’t think you can send out the audio of anything but phone related stuff over bluetooth.

edit :: and A2DP support will only be for iPhone 3G owners. It won’t work on the original iPhone.

It would be easier for you to just live with a few extra wires that would also charge your iPhone instead of a complicated blue tooth set up that would drain the iPhone battery (and require a lot of hacking of the junk phone in question) Also if you were to do blue tooth you would still need a power and audio wire for your blue tooth adapter and then a third wire for power to your iPhone. So a short answer would be No.
