Anyone use this for Bluetooth audio?

Looks like an FM transmitter but with a bluetooth connection instead of wired. Sure the quality isn't there but no evasive install and pretty cheap. Plus built in mic for calls.

Amazon.com: GOgroove FlexSMART X2 Wireless In-Car Bluetooth FM Transmitter with Charging , Music Control , and Hands-Free Calling for Smartphones , Tablets , MP3 Players & More!: Car Electronics

FYI it's for a 2005 Accord sedan DX

Free up some space in your car and it's hidden. Plus you can hook up usb, aux, ipod.

Personally I haven't heard a "wireless" connection that has anywhere near the sound quality of the "wired" connection.

If convenience if your main goal, then it will probably work fine but if sound quality is your goal, then you'll probably be disappointed.

Ike is tottally right. I have this one http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B008XM...ef=mp_s_a_1_39 and though it works great for hanfsfree talking when it comes to streaming music the quality is bleh, much better directly with the aux cable.

Yeah but it's like 1/3 the price after factoring in the parts and install since I have no aux in (DX Accord). And yeah I am not building a system like in my old Accord. I love trunk space.

It's essentially the same product sound quality wise. And it only has 4 selectable channels which could be a deal breaker depending on area. Plus I wonder how difficult the install is on my 05 Accord.

I believe the isimple one is slightly different in that it is hardwired to the antenna input port of your cars radio. The gogroove has to broadcast itself to your radio whereas the isimple simply taps into the radio directly. Interference is less likely on the isimple, and audio quality would also be much better.
I've been waiting to pull the trigger on getting the isimple. Maybe later this spring

^True. It's better than FM modulation as per the reviews. Let's see if Z06 gets it for a review.
