Re: bluetooth speakers
Let me open this thread up again and ask, doesn't a Bluetooth Receiver (like a Sony Bluetooth Marine Receiver at West Marine) mean that it will broadcast to Bluetooth Speakers or does it only connect to a Bluetooth source (stream music from your Iphone) to wired speakers? Obviously I could just stream music from the Iphone (etc) directly to the speakers. But if I have music on a usb stick is there a receiver that I can plug it into and stream music to the Bluetooth speakers?
If I wanted the versitility of multiple sources (Bluetooth, USB, SD card, aux input etc) I think I woudl install an in-dash unit and hardware speakers below and above. Most speakers will have limited display and selecting music can be difficult. Most indash units have at least some ability to select music from a menu.
Bluetooth is great for quickly listening to music from smart phone, but that is the limit.
