  • Use Bluetooth connection in Acura TL for Bluetooth portable MP3 Player?

    I've got a 2004 Acura TL with Nav. It's already got bluetooth connectivity for the phone, which plays through the speakers.

    My question is:

    Has anyone used a bluetooth enabled MP3 player to connect to the stereo of an Acura TL or similarly setup car?

    I'd be willing to try, I guess, but it would be awesome if someone else already did.

    It would be nice. No installation, leave the MP3 player in the glove compartment. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Someone here might have tried what you're asking but this site is more related to in-car PC's.
    I imagine what you are saying may be possible, but it seems your Acura nav system would ask or need to be hooked up to specific phones Lexus.
    I would also think the sound quality you may end up with (if you where able to hook up an MP3 player) would only be sup-par at best.

      There is a huge difference in bandwidth between voice-quality audio and 44.1khz CD audio. At best you'll have poor-sounding music over bluetooth. If you want a quick fix, get a FM Modulator (also known as something like an iTrip),

      But the best sound quality is going to be straight analog connection. If you have a AUX input on your stereo, just run a patch cable.
