Bluetooth Car Stereo

 

 

Bluetooth compatibility has become a top priority for shoppers when deciding on a new car receiver, and understandably so. It’s more than simply another cool feature, it’s downright practical. With your phone and stereo wirelessly paired, life in your car just gets easier.

What Bluetooth connectivity gets you

Generally, when your phone and receiver have a Bluetooth connection, you should gain access to hands-free calling and be able to stream music wirelessly from your phone.

For stereos equipped with CD playback, USB ports for iPod® connection, an HD Radio™ tuner, SiriusXM compatibility, and an AM/FM tuner, the addition of these two Bluetooth functions rounds out an already stellar array of car audio options. But the beauty of Bluetooth is that it allows even more fun features.

The DEH-X6700BT CD receiver features Pioneer's MIXTRAX technology, built-in Bluetooth for hands-free calling and audio streaming, USB direct control of an iPod or iPhone, USB access to music on Android devices (4.0 or later), and Pandora for both iPhone and Android. In addition to an updated cosmetic design, the DEH-X6700BT  include updated feature enhancements like Bluetooth USB pairing and Siri Eyes Free voice recognition compatiblity (for iPhone 4s and later).
