If the easy and wireless Bluetooth streaming in modern car stereos has you green–blue?–with envy, this DIY project will help get you started on the path of Bluetooth input hacking.
Roofus, a Hack A Day reader and tinker, pulled out the stereo deck from his late model Ford car. What he found certainly wasn’t plug and play, but with some careful probing and tweaking he was able to cannibalize parts from around his house to enable Bluetooth-stereo streaming. Now all he has to do to send music from his smart phone is start the music playing and flip a switch on his stereo console to turn on the Bluetooth device embedded in the dash.
