Yes you can a unit to let you talk through your car stereo. You can also play music from your cell phone if it has bluetooth. Bluetooth is amazing and opens up so many more options to your driving and talking and listening to music.

Hello

Bluetooth Control (5L-Bus)
The KENWOOD mobile phone hands-free unit, using the Bluetooth wireless technology can be connected to the system. This unit allows the user to communicate safely without removing their hands from the steering wheel during driving. Simply connect the unit to the BT H/F-compatible head unit, and a clear phone communication may be conducted by talking into the microphone and listening to the voice of the other party from the front speakers of the head unit. The head unit can display the name and status of the other party and the signal strength, the remaining battery power, etc. The unit can register up to 5 BT-compatible mobile phones and also download individual phone books for them. (Simultaneous use of more than one phone is not available.)

Yup dude, ur stereo id bluetooth compatible.

It means that u wld be able to make a connection betw. 2 devices working on bluetooth....


Benefits of bluettoth compatibility :-
1. Wireless
As you probably already know, there are many benefits
and advantages to using wireless devices. Along with
improving safety as a result of eliminating wires
you don't need, wireless also offers you plenty of
other advantages. When traveling with your laptop
or other wireless devices, you'll no longer have to
worry about bringing connection cables.
2. Bluetooth is actually inexpensive
The technology of Bluetooth is cheap for companies
to implement, which results in lower costs for the
company. These savings are then passed from the
company on to you.
3. Bluetooth is automatic
Bluetooth doesn't have you set up a connection or
push any buttons. When two or more devices enter
a range of up to 30 feet of each other, they will
automatically begin to communicate without you
having to do anything.
4. Standardized protocol
Bluetooth is standardized wireless, meaning that
a high level of compatibility among devices is
guaranteed. Bluetooth will connect devices to
each other, even if they aren't the same model.
5. Low interference
Bluetooth devices almost always avoid interference
from other wireless devices. Bluetooth uses a
technique known as frequency hopping, and also
low power wireless signals.
6. Low energy consumption
As a result of Bluetooth using low power signals,
the technology requires very little energy and will
use less battery or electrical power as a result.
This is an excellent benefit for mobile devices,
as Bluetooth won't drain the battery.
7. Sharing voice and data
The standard for Bluetooth will allow compatible
devices to share data and voice communications.
This is great for mobile phones and headsets, as
Bluetooth simplifies driving and talking on your
cell phone.
8. Instant PAN (Personal Area Network)
You can connect up to seven Bluetooth devices to
each other within a range of up to 30 feet, forming
a piconet or PAN. For a single room, you can
also set up multiple piconets.
9. Upgradeable
Upgradeable is the standard for Bluetooth. There
are newer versions of Bluetooth in the works,
which offer many new advantages and backward
compatible with older versions.
10. The technology stays
Bluetooth technology is a world wide, universal
wireless standard. With it being as popular as
it is, you can count on it being around for years
to come. As more and more devices start to use
Bluetooth technology, more manufacturers will be
eager to make their products compatible. A chain
reaction will occur, making Bluetooth the standard
for cutting edge wireless

Nokia E65 and Kenwood KDC BT100 bluetooth handsfree unit


Hello,

you cannot use the Nokia E65 with KDC BT100 bluetooth handsfree unit (an external unit to add bluetooth capabilities to your compatible Kenwood car stereo) unless you are running a firmware release >2.x

You can read your Nokia phone's firmware release by typing: *#0000#

With any firmware older than 2.x, the phone will find the BT100 and even pair with it, but the phone will not show up on BT100's phone list.

In some cases, Nokia E65 can also *crash* the BT100 unit. If this happens, the BT100 will disappear from your car stereo's menu. The only way to bring it back to live is to unplug the power of your car stereo. A simple off/on cycle will not be enough.

How do I connect the bluetooth from the radio to my phone?


This radio is Bluetooth "Ready" and will not pair to any blue tooth device until an additional peice of hardware is purchased and installed. Page 13 of the manual describes this as a "Bluetooth HANDS FREE BOX.

Unless you have purchased this and installed it - pairing is not possible. I hope this helps & good luck!

My stereo system is showing HF error 68 and will not connect to my mobile phone. The system is a KDC BT50U


This error has nothing to do with installation - there is a bluetooth compatibility issue.
Not all bluetooth devices are compatible, and some only have limited functionality.

If you have already reset the unit, and the problem persists - the phone you are pairing is not compatible with the radio.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

Wiring diagram


My fault meant this as a solution post....

What do you need the diagram for? If your installing the radio, you do not need a diagram you need to go purchase the wiring harness for your make and model and year car. Match the colored wires together to the ones on the back of the head unit then connect them, then that harness plugs into your stock car harness that your stock radio unplugged from. You also probly need an antenna adapter cable that just connects to your stock antenna cable to add length and then plugs into your aftermarket radio. If you need a wiring diagram because you are trying to open you radio and fix it because it is broke or something...good luck to ya. Hope I helped... :)

Car remotes are not like universal TV remotes, you can not program them to work with a radio they were not designed to work with.

If this is the remote that came with the radio, you may just need a new battery.

I don't have the sevice info in front of me right now to tell you if this remote is compatible with your radio.

Bluetooth connection not working Kenwood KCA BT100 with KDC W7537U and a Nokia N95


Well... I'm sure mine worked ONCE! I have the BT100 and KDC-W7534U. It worked fine with my Nokia N80 but with my Nokia N95 It connects fine but i cant hear or be heard when the call is answered.Interestingly I cannot use the headunit to dial a number anymore. If i was to be on a call BEFORE connecting the headunit then it works. But once the call ends and i select an input source - the phone has the same symtoms as above again. I have checked all the profile settings and set the enhancment to be active on the active profile. I thought Bluetooth was a standard and it was just meant to work if it was bluetooth compliant! ...Grrrrrr!
