    Hi folks. So I'm trying to go as wire free as possible in my car with the new S3 coming. With that in mind I'm planning on going A2DP with the phone. My car has a 12v outlet and line in, in the armrest which means I should be able to hoot something up and allow it to continuously charge. (The car has another lighter outlet near the feet of the the passenger seat so I figured that would be used to power the phone while in the dock.

    I'm looking at several solutions

    and

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0038MA11U...cUvbUpU1916136 (Not digging this one as much since you have to hit the button to power it on.)


    However I figured I'd ping the community and see their take on a Bluetooth solution. Does anyone have other pieces of hardware they can suggest/recommend? Thanks!

    I have not looked into these, but happen to read the AC review for the JABRA.

    Not sure about either of those options. I've used FM transmitters before and I always had a touch of static myself. Its a cool concept, your basically creating a mini FM radio station in your car.
    Myself, I'm holding out for a whole head unit. I tried it at Best Buy and it worked pretty good.
    Google Kenwood. I tested a few, but for economically purposes I liked the Kenwood 652. They sold it for $150+/- in store. It had bt built in specifically foe A2DP.
    IMO, seems a better option than external devices and it was really clear.

    Nope. I'm not using radio frequencies at all. Basically the phone will be transmitting via Bluetooth to the device and then device will be sending it via a headphone jack in the armrest. The signal quality between BT and radio frequencies is dramatically different.

    Been using this one for almost a year.. Works flawlessly and sounds as good as a straight wired connection...

    This is what I am using. I did quite a bit of research, and this one seemed to have the best reputation for just working, so I decided to go with it even though there were cheaper options.

    Don't let the name fool you. It works with any bluetooth enabled device. When I am in my car, and my audio streams through this and my calls go through the car's bluetooth (which isn't A2DP capable).

    It is powered through mini usb and hides away nicely in the center console.
