    It depends on your car. On my 2009 Toyota Prius, bluetooth would only work with phone and I had to use a cable to the phone's headphone jack for audio input to the car's audio system. On my new 2013 Prius the car audio system will connect to my phone's bluetooth just fine.

    Depends on the car. My 2011 BMW 335i coupe only supports Bluetooth telephony, not streaming audio.

    As said above it depends on the car. My 2012 Acura TSX supports anything I've tried including Google Play Music.

    I have a Kenwood BT deck in my car and, in addition to BT audio (where I can play any app that I want) it has separate source sets for Pandora, I Heart Radio, and Aha Radio. Whatever that is...

    I have a 2011 Chevy Traverse LTZ. Sounds like I should be able to use it. My phone for talking is paired to it. Do I need to pair it again while using the app?

    No, make sure you switch your car to Bluetooth mode though. Bluetooth calls don't actually need to be in a Bluetooth mode. On my Acura its on the AUX/BT button.

    Bluetooth audio connections don't really give a fat rat about where they come from, they're just listing for the phone's output. A recent Camry rental would play music, and, then when the phone rang, switched over to the phone mode automatically as per the phone's operation/output.

    fat-fingered and Maxx-ed out.

    Do you have Nav? My 2011 e90 streams BT audio just fine. I use Google Play and TuneIn all the time.

    Yep, has nav, but I have the crappy audio, not the Harmon Kardon. I think they changed something mid year that supported Bluetooth streaming and my car missed it.

    No worries... I can still plug it in via the headphone jack, and my lease is almost up so there's a 435 on the way...

    I've put Alpine headunits in my and my wife's Saturn S-Series, and they do great with anything you want to stream via bluetooth, as well as phone. Excellent for a headunit that's not much more than $100 on Amazon.
