Bluetooth technology transfers information between your car and phone without the need for a wired connection. Connecting the two during a process called “pairing” is remarkably fast, easy and secure. In order to use this technology, you first need a Bluetooth-capable phone. From there, it’s time to find a new receiver or device that takes of advantage of all these Bluetooth features
Streaming Audio: A2DP
A2DP is the feature you’ll see on a lot of Bluetooth devices that allows you to to stream your favorite music from your phone, even from Pandora or Spotify. And since Bluetooth uses 2-way communication, you can pause, skip and play from your iPod, smart phone, tablet, or whatever Bluetooth device you use.
Hands Free Text Messaging (MAP)
The most recent Bluetooth feature to gain widespread adoption turns your car into a text message assistant. Message Access Profile (MAP) reads your texts to you and in some cases even transcribes your vocal response into typed replies! Stop reaching for your phone every time the notification sounds, and focus on the road.
Install a tiny microphone, and the Hands-Free Profile (HFP) will turn your car stereo into a killer speakerphone system. Then to make it even better, integrate the Phone Book Access Profile (PBAP), and sync contacts from your phone to your in dash receiver. Most receivers can display the names of callers, browse your contacts, and access recent call history.
