    I've been scouring this forum looking for tips on how to get Bluetooth added to my OEM 'premium sound' stereo without completely replacing it or losing the CD changer, and still have decent sound quality.

    Ta Da! Google and a lot of searching to the rescue:

    Bluetooth Interface iPhone Android (iSimple part# ISFM23)
    (it doesn't broadcast, it plugs into antenna port)

    http://www.oemautosound.com/p-528-bluetooth-interface-iphone-android.aspx

    Or:

    iSimple ISFM2351 Bluetooth Tranzit Blu HF FM Transmitter
    (it doesn't broadcast, it plugs into antenna port)

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-iSIMPL...845995&hash=item4221947f8a:g:f~wAAOSw5eBfdhyc

    I'm sorry if this is a repeat, but I promise I searched the forum high and low, and didn't find anything regarding the above...

    i have used the i-simple stuff. it is very well put together. i had a contract doing some commercial rigs they didn't want aftermarket units in.

    personally i would just get an aftermarket deck for the price of this interface. 10-15 more and you have an entry level pioneer.
