How To – Bluetooth Audio

How To – Bluetooth audio without a head unit

Subject to you personal needs and preferences you may want to consider the following.

I tend to drive with the roof off pretty much 95% of the time, CD’s are redundant in my world and the radio is pointless, therefore I’ve tended to use the Bluetooth or the USB in on my head unit and played music from my iPhone.

I recently decided that the head unit is providing very little and was a space I’d like to use to put in some 52mm gauges (oil temp, pressure) – so could I get rid of the head unit but retain the option to play music?

I therefore looked around for a small 12v car amp, with RCA input and a Bluetooth unit all which could be mounted out of sight to allow me to play MP3 direct from my phone.
