    Default Bluetooth from RCA?

    I do not have a bluetooth head unit and have no desire to buy a new head unit. However, I wouldn't mind losing a wire if possible. I currently use the aux in which is the disk changer slot style in the back of the head unit. Go from it to Ipod or from it to RCA/3.5 headphone.

    Is there a way to go from RCA to bluetooth allowing me to stream from my phone to the head unit wirelessly? I am assuming if you can its going to be a powered conversion?

    Is there a brand someone has used?
    Are there marine applications I need to consider?
    I'm assuming I should just stick to DC power? Should it be hardwired or could I just run to the posts under the drivers helm?

    Aside from the technical side ... Who uses bluetooth? Does it work from all over the boat? Does it ever sound harsh?

    They way wakeworld reads, that cord would do the trick. Curiosity on this is up for sure.

    "Break away from your regular headsets and enjoy your favorite music throughout the comfort of your own home with the Blackberry Remote Stereo Gateway, which streams the music stored on your BlackBerry smartphone or other A2DP-compatible devices to a home stereo. Now you can carry your favorite tunes on one device so you can enjoy it anywhere.
    To wirelessly transmit your music, simply connect the Gateway using the accompanying 3.5mm stereo cable or RCA auxiliary cable to your stereo system, turn on the gateway, pair your device, and that's it. You are free to roam up to 30 feet without missing a single beat. Use the Bluetooth connection to change tracks, adjust the volume, and play or pause the music. Just tap a finger on its touch-sensitive surface to bring it to life or put it to sleep.

    The BlackBerry Remote Stereo Gateway is compatible with all Bluetooth enabled mobile devices so you can stream your music from your BlackBerry smartphone, PC, laptop, or any other A2DP-compatible mobile phone. It can support up to eight different devices."

    Ok, last link for opinions. Check this one,Plugs directy into 12v outlet, cord then runs directly to aux in on H/U, HSE, or EQ. This could be accomplished by picking up a 12v plug from Vato Zone, wiring it in under the dash (hidden and wouldn;t have to give up an existing plugin) So it could remain plugged in, then the aux goes right to component.....

    There was a post on here a while back where a guy had installed the Apple Airport(?) so that he could stream from his iPad or iPhone. Did a search and nothing turned up but I remember seeing it. Although I'm bluetooth capable in both the truck and the boat the wires already ran and hidden so just sticking with them is easy to do.

    Although I did just order that Krypt EQ on sale so I may switch and run mine into the aux-in on that instead of clear back to the HU and go from a 12ft wire down to a 2ft...

    Do you lose any sound quality going bluetooth?
