⓱gear – Streaming Music in Your Car WITHOUT a Headphone Jack (iPhone 7)

The Problem: You like to stream music (or podcasts) to your car audio system but there’s no headphone jack on your iPhone 7 (thanks, Apple).

Or you have an iPhone 4/5/6 but there’s no Aux input on your car radio for an audio patch cord.

Or your much older car only has a cassette player.

Or your fancy new car sports a CD slot but no Bluetooth (thanks, Audi).

The Solution: Thankfully there is a single inexpensive device that addresses all of these scenarios. This stylish transceiver gets the bluetooth audio stream from your phone and then transmits it over a FM signal to your car radio. So there is no wire attached to the phone or to the car radio. Once paired it automatically links to your phone when the car radio is turned on. It just works…

The Lumsing Bluetooth 4.0 Car Audio Adapter

Remarkably the sound quality and volume are preserved and there’s no lag or interference noise. There’s a dual 12-volt adapter included so you can charge your phone when in use. The only wire is for USB power. The display magnetically mounts to the dash. Once tuned to an open FM station you can stash it out of site if your prefer. The display unit has some controls but in a year of use I’ve never needed to touch mine. It has a microphone for Siri integration and hands-free phone calls. I recently added one to the other 3 family cars and everybody is equally as thrilled.

Best of all you don’t have to use one of Apple’s many dongles for an awkward fix.
