Thumbs up Bluetooth Music streaming from phones etc

I have'nt been able to locate this topic elsewhere and hence this query.

Am seeking to stream music files from my Blackberry device directly to my Bluetooth ready HU ( Blaupunkt Hamburg ).

There is a 'PLAY using Bluetooth' option in my BB unit, but the file doesnt seem to get read & played via the HU.

Can anyone guide me through the process,please.

Are you able to pair your phone to the HU ? Once you do it and you play the file on your phone choosing the HU as the output option, it should work.

@ ethanhunt : Yes, am able to pair the BB unit to the Blau HU & perform all the functions of the phone using my car speaker system. However, it doesnt seem to read the music file through bluetooth & that's my query.

In addition to pairing, what other options do i have to allow this streaming please.

I am not so sure if your BB has A2DP.

Which model is it ? Hamburg MP68 supports A2DP while MP57 does not. Maybe you have the MP57.

Thumbs down

I too have a Blaupunkt Hamburg MP57. It does not support bluetooth streaming . Tried everything but found out later that it does not support it.

Thumbs up

@ Sam : Thanx for the response / clarification.

@ Ethanhunt: Guess, now i start looking to upgrade my Blau unit with A2DP compatable unit, going forward. Any options besides Ham68 in your opinion.

@ K a s h : Apart from this one feature, the Hamburg 57 has been a delight in my experience. What say.?

I Luv this HU mainly for its bluetooth capability. It even retains all my saved channels and telephone numbers even if i disconnect the battery :-)

There are very few choices if you want a A2DP enabled HU's. I use a Kenwood BT7539U (arnd 14.5k with B&W) which has Bluetooth + iPod control. Other options are the Blaupunkt Hamburg MP68, Blaupunkt MP78 (both with B&W). Pioneer has one 7050BT but it is available only in grey (around 15k). Otherwise Kenwood 6539U + seperate BT adapter will also cost you arnd 14-15k with B&W.

One other option is to connect the aux-in cable to the headphone socket in your phone. or buy a cheap USB pen drive and hook it upto your existing HU.

Yes, i completely agree to this.

The way around for bluetooth streaming is use of aux-in cable for now - until the next upgrade though.

The Aux-in is my current interim solution.

I do use the USB pendrive for music that suits my taste.

I have friends who hold good muzik files in their phones and travel with me most of the times.

Hence am only researching how i can use their play-lists to play on my HU through this streaming process, ideally wireless.

But, will eventually get around to a permanent solution soon enough.

Nobody mentioned JVC?
I have jvc kd bt1 and i play music mostly thru my w950i. The sound quality is awesome. I can guarantee that nobody can distinguish between the sound source, by just listening to the music.

I forgot to add pics in the show off section. Will do that soon.

Nitin, i looked at the link, i got the feel that you need to buy that HU as well, in my case I dont want to touch the OE HU.

can you help me understand how this thing works? and how much did you pay, the site says around 350$
