Upgrade your car with Bluetooth, aux required

Auto Tech
Hi, I'm Wayne Cunningham, taking a look at the Aukey portable Bluetooth receiver for cars. That's this little device here, which can retrofit your car with Bluetooth audio streaming and Bluetooth hands-free phone calls, from your phone to here to your car stereo. The main component of this device is this little spherical kind of half spherical thing. And this will actually attach to your dashboard somewhere in your car. Aukey has this little magnetic pad. You attach this and Adhesive pad too, somewhere on your dashboard and this actually cleverly hooks to this, so you can take this whole unit off, hide this in a console if you don't want it to be seen while you're parked or something like that, or just leave it on here. And we have a wire coming off this main unit here that splits down the middle and one end goes to this USB plug, that's for powering up the main device. Aukey conveniently includes this little USB to 12-volt adapter, so you plug this into your car's cigarette lighter or power point. Whatever you want to call it. Now I'm using a 12-volt power supply just to demonstrate this in the studio. So I'll plug that in. That powers up the device. I also have an auxiliary plug, auxiliary audio plug coming off of the Akai unit. This one I'll plug into the auxiliary input on my car stereo. That's where all the audio from this will come through. Actually, from the phone, to this, will come through here to the car stereo. They have some really cleverly integrated Controls on here. So if I twist this left or right, twist it once it'll skip a track forward. Twist it back, it'll skip back a track if there's any music playing. Or if I twist and hold, it'll actually change the, the volume of the audio through. You can change the audio thru up and down on your phone. And also there's a button on the top here, so I just push the button once like that it will toggle any music on my phone, and if I click on it again it will play the music, it is very convenience as well. I can also use it to accept incoming phone call But even better if I push and hold this button down, it activates voice command on a smart phone. Navigate to CBS Los Angeles. And it's found some locations for CBS Los Angeles. So if I had this in my car, I could have my My phone back in a bag or in my coat pocket. And I've just pushed this, caused the navigation to start up, and any voice prompts for navigation will come through this to the car stereo, so I can use this to navigate. I can also get text messages, so I can have Siri read out text messages. I really like this device. I like the way it works, I like the way it enabled Bluetooth in your car, a lot of great functions. But one thing to keep in mind is that it requires an aux jack in your stereo. If you don't have that in your car stereo, this will do you no good.
