BT Audio on a Z3?

Recommended Posts

My d3 was stolen yesterday and I just bought a z3 on eBay. I can't find any info that tells me I can stream pandora with bt audio with the z3. I read that you can't do it with the z1 or z2. I'm using an iPhone 4s ( not sure if that matters.) I would like to know fow sure before I install it, because it will be for sale if it won't.do it. I will just get the z130bt.

 

Also, will my cd-btb200 Bluetooth adapter work with the z3 or will I have to get a different model adapter?

 

Thanks!

It works perfectly. Just hit the "band" button on the Ext 1.screen and it moves over to bt audio.

 

When you say it works perfectly, do you mean you are able to control song selection through the AVIC like a Ford Sync works?

 

I just cancelled my XM after having it since launch day and have been considering this or a HD receiver for my truck. I would rather have this though as it gives me more control and fewer commercials. The link above from Garrett (still loving my "Toomey Drive Z1-Z3 upgrade!) says that it streams whatever is on the phone. Does this mean I need to start the stream and select the songs via my phone?

Yes. No song control from the headunit. You would need a newer model for that feature (ie Z120,120,130,140)

yes the btb200 works just fine through the z1 z2 z3 models, just not like the nd-bt1. the streaming and handsfree work great.

I want to update this just incase anyone was interested in adding bluetooth audio in conjunction w pioneer bluetooth module for hands free calling. I purchased a usb bluetooth dongle off ebay for less than $5. Ran a 12v to usb converter for the dongle. From the bt dongle, is 3.5mm to rca into the z2 av1 input. My iphone 5s syncs with both devices, i still have hands free calling and bluetooth audio streaming to av1 input. Works great, only downside, there is no external controls on the headunit other than volume. I'm very happy with the mod.
