Can you connect iphone thorugh bluetooth to play music?

RAV4 Limited 2009: How is there a way to connect my iphone through the bluetooth so it can play music or do I have to use the aux jack? If I have to use the aux jack is the following link the correct choice or do I need something different?


AGPtek - 3.5mm Auxiliary Audio/USB Cable for Apple® iPhone® 4 - Black - CAR-AUX


Thank you!!!

If you have the JBL system with the Bluetooth controls on the steering wheel, then no, you cannot stream music from your iPhone. That cable you linked to should work through the AUX jack, but a simpler 3.5mm to 3.5mm stereo cable will work just as well for around 8 bucks. Search for SKU 8915178 at Best Buy.

I've heard that the BlueLogic add-on BT kit allows music streaming, but don't know for a fact if it's true.

Thanks I will probably get the cable and then in the future consider the Blu Logic... I think I have seen kits to adapt your system....

it does in fact allow music streaming, not that great on the sound quality though.

Little late, but I do think this is important. I was initially using the AUX jack as well, but the jack on my phone wore out realy quick, so be really careful with this (I can't use the jack on my phone at all now).

I ended up getting a BlackBerry Music Gateway for $30 2 years ago, and it works really well, quality is very good. I use Tasker (Android app) to automatically start playing my music when it detects I get in the car.

Here is a link for the Iphone/Ipod connection using the stock stereo, $99 for the kit; $119 kit+cell holder delivered. I LOVE IT! I removed the lower glovebox to install. now, to just upgrade my speakers...

Hi, I may look into the kit. It sounds like a good deal... for now we got a aux jack cable and works well... we did have some issues trying to get the jack in with one brand so we went with a monster cable because the connector was thinner... but I think it had a lot to do with the case on my iphone... thanks for all your advice!
