A2DP Bluetooth Receiver for Car's Aux In Jack?
I would prefer it to have a rechargable battery and a 3.5mm audio out so I can connect it to my car.
Anyone found a device like this?
It works great. it stays powered by the 12v socket and plugs into the aux jack in my car. The remote lets you play/pause and voice control/answer-end a call. It does have a mic for hands free calling. I just with the mic was better or you could connect an external mic so it can be paced anywhere.
This is the ONLY solution that auto-connects, and can Auto-Start music on an iOS device. This is truly a priceless feature. Check it out:
I've found this:
But I'd like to hear if anyone's used this or something similar.

Looks like it was marketed as a solution to stream from a non-bluetooth equipped iPod to the receiver however they do sell the receiver separately and user reviews say that it does pair with other devices.
The only thing holding me back now is the amazon review rating.
But I am worried it only works with BlackBerries. Any thoughts?
BIG PROBLEM, though... it *doesn't* support handsfree calling for my iPhone4! Seems like the Phone app should easily just recognize the Stereo Gateway as a mic-less headphone to play call audio over the car's speakers and use the iPhone's built-in mic.
By the way, this actually works great as a poor-man's-in-car-handsfree-calling-solution:
Just plug in a 3.5mm audio patch cable from your iPhone's headphone jack into your car's aux input. You can play songs from your iPod on your car speakers and when a call comes in, audio fades out nicely and you can answer the call without unjacking the phone... Call audio just plays over your car speakers (via the aux in line) and the iPhone's built-in mic picks up your voice when you speak. Actually works quite nicely if you just place your iPhone upside-down (with mic grill facing upward) in a car cupholder -- you can take calls, speaking in a normal voice even in noisy traffic.
I'd been using that "poor-man's" solution for a while and was hoping that the Blackberry Remote Stereo Gateway would support the same config, but just turn the 3.5mm audio patch cable into a wireless Bluetooth connection. Unfortunately doesn't appear to work because the iPhone won't recognize the Stereo Gateway as a Bluetooth speaker for calls!! Argh.
But like I said above, it *does* work for A2DP music streaming, just *not* for handsfree calling.
Anyone know of a similar Bluetooth A2DP gateway device that *is* recognized by iPhone during phone calls?
