It's for playing the music I have stored on my tablet and my phone to my home stereo receiver with my awesome speakers without having to wire it all up.

Link iPod/Android/iPhone audio to your non-bluetooth car stereo through the aux jack.

This guy's video review sold me, exactly what I want to use it for, though, admittedly, not in a BMW car.

Its a wireless interface to your amped speakers.

You throw in a ac/usb wall charger and a pair of computer speakers/home entertainment system/car stereo and you can wirelessly play music from your cellphone that fills and entire room/house/car?

And you can't simply use an aux jack on your iPhone because...?

If you have a Pontiac Solstice roadster it lets you play music wirelessly from your Android phone through the radio.

Sure I could but my audio system is across the room (about 15 feet) and I like to have my phone near me even if I'm listening to music. Who wants to have a 15 ft wired physical tether stretching across the room. Also wireless tech exists so why not.

But you still have to use a wire from this device to the stereo... So again why send audio through a blue tooth connection from your phone (degrading some audio quality in the process) into a device that then has an aux cable to your stereo?

I need the opposite of this, a bluetooth transmitter. Did someone say they had that yesterday?

Yes there was one yesterday. It's funny cause I was complaining about that one being the opposite of what I wanted. Although I can understand why you'd want to transmit on BT.

There shouldn't be degradation unless you are way out of spec distance-wise from bluetooth device. It's digital. As long as you are not out of distance range and loosing packets the data is the same going in and out.

Word. Bluetooth/iPod docks for major AV receivers run around $100.

I get it now. So you could roam around your house and change songs and whatnot.

As long as you do not exceed Bluetooth range (distance from receiver).

Got mine today and it works great.

I plugged the usb cord into a cigarette lighter USB adapter, the audio cord into my car's AUX in, paired it to my iPod and less then a minute after I opened the box it was all set up.

Now it automatically repairs to my iPod when I start the car up.

Great device.
