Bluetooth that works

Postby Not_Anumber » Fri Apr 28, 2017 3:54 pm

I was looking for a bluetooth kit for when I'm driving the Capri. I wanted to avoid one with an FM transmitter as Id had one of those before and just got irritated at having to move frequency to avoid conflict with radio stations in different towns. As I had a 3.5mm aux in on my stereo I went for a VTIN as I'd read good reviews.
Im impressed, it works really well, doesnt look cheap and was very easy to setup. All for less than a tenner.

The next step is to hardwire it in using the ignition switched live for the radio to avoid visible cables.

my wife has one that clips on her sunvisor - cost a tenner and works perfectly. Bonus is, if she uses my car, she just unclips it and puts it in mine - battery lasts weeks on standby. Me? I'm a miserable old git so no-one rings me so I haven't got one :lol:

Be sure to get the special uprated version that enables pedestrians and motorists to hear the dial tone from halfway down the road!
