Bluetooth speakers

Post by shawnee1952 »



i am thinking about using bluetooth speakers to listen to tunes while I am on the highway. Here in southeastern Ohio the radio reception is spotty but my cell phone works reliably. Does anyone have any recommendations on what brand to look into?

If you're comfortable with it, you might want to hack into the audio system wiring and wire a bluetooth receiver module into the audio input of the tuner (you could use a switch to switch between the tuner and your bluetooth module). That way you could play your phone to the bluetooth receiver, which would inject it into your audio system to play over the speakers (or headset). I used this method to hook up a satellite radio to my GL1100.
