    Question Can I listen to tunes from my ipad through the car stereo using bluetooth?

    I have a car stereo which has bluetooth (Kenwood KDC BT30) and i'm about to buy an ipad (not an ipad2 but the original with 3g and 64gigs) and I was wondering wether I could use the Bluetooth to link the ipad and have tunes coming through the car speakers without using auxilery wires??

    The stereo can pick up phone calls and put them through the car stereo but doesn't mentune about ipads and music.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think your stereo needs to have AD2P capabilities in order to play music through it using your iPad...

    That's a interesting thought, I don't know enough about Bluetooth to answer you. But I have found that my iPad can play through my iPod adapter in the car. Music as well as games and video plays through the speakers (kinda cool).

    If your iPad can connect to it it should. I am not a Bluetooth expert though.

    That is correct. A quick look online at the stereo model number specs should reveal if it has a2dp

    It should work, but just to clarify, which version of the Belkin FM Tuner do you have? The one that goes into the 30-pin slot, or one that goes into the audiojack?

    If it is the one connecting to the audiojack, it will definitely work. If it is the one connecting to the 30-pin slot, it should work, but there could be some compatibility issues, so there is no guarantuee that it will work.
