    As you may have seen in this thread, I'm trying to improve my phone calling experience when using a car dock in a car without Bluetooth. I get great music using the iBolt dock USB/aux cable, and am discussing the details of the differences between that and the plain USB cable plus a headphone-to-line-in cable with someone from iBolt in that thread.

    But I'd also like to investigate another alternative, which is to look into Bluetooth car kits for the car. Can anyone recommend an inexpensive Bluetooth kit that will plug into the line-in adapter on my car stereo and do both phone and music, as well as working with S-Voice, Google Voice Search, and possibly Utter (a third-party continuous voice recognition app I've been playing with on and off)? I'd prefer to not have to hit any buttons on the device to make it work, since I'll have my phone sitting there in its dock, with all of its UI right there ready to be used.

    Thanks for the link! Unfortunately, that looks overpowered for my needs. Since my phone will be in a dock, I don't need call announcing or many more of the features that offers (the phone will do them for me), and I've already got the behind-dash harness kit.

    I did a little poking around, and this is more like what I'm looking for. Do you know anything about that unit, or others like it?

    what i linked it what would be similar to the hardfree kit installed from factory. it would turn off the radio when you get a call and what not.

    that link you posted it just a microphone that plugs into your 12v for power and then an audio input port if your deck has one, which yours doesn't. Its basically a just a PC mic that needs power

    just get this: Amazon.com: Jabra CRUISER 2 Bluetooth In-Car Speakerphone: Electronics

    and use the internal Fm transmitter for your car radio. thats what i do with my Civic, and its portable for any car.
