Default 2009 IS250 Aftermarket Bluetooth Options

Hey guys,

Wondering if you have any ideas or suggestions for Bluetooth mods for a 2009 IS250 with no nav...wanting to get the phone going and music from the iPhone as well. I've checked out the Parrot one but not sure if that's the best for the money. Thanks!

I bought a BluBridge mini-jack Rx and love it. The sound quality is awesome, and you can keep it out of sight in center console. I use it with an Iphone and works off of the phones Bluetooth. You can stream music to the device witch is plugged into the AUX jack and control with the phone-no wires. The mini jack is very small, but the only downside is I have to pair it each time i get in the car.

the bluetooth mic is okay at best...when the car is moving it picks up too much road noise

That's pretty annoying, the stereo gateway I posted auto pairs everytime the car starts and it gets power. The only downside compared to the rx is that you need to run usb power to it, but I got a Scosche Dual USB Car Charger (had to run a right angle usb connector from the scosche so that console would close right) which solved that problem for me, while also letting me charge my iphone at the same time if i need to
