    No Bluetooth in your car? 5 solutions to stream Spotify music and make hands-free calls

    Bluetooth in the car is a must-have these days. It allows you to make hands-free calls and stream music on Spotify from your smartphone or tablet. But how do you install Bluetooth in your car if it is not equipped with this technology as standard?

    For example, if you have an older model car, you do not have a built-in Bluetooth system as standard. In this blog we will discuss different ways to 'build' Bluetooth in your car. Building is in quotes because it can sometimes be solved with a simple trick. Are we interested in you? Then read on!

    Simple solution: the FM transmitter

    An FM transmitter is a device that you plug into the cigarette lighter of your car and connects to the car radio via an FM frequency. You can connect your smartphone to the FM transmitter via Bluetooth and stream music and make hands-free calls. An FM transmitter is a handy solution if your car radio does not have Bluetooth and you do not feel like pulling cables. At Wegman you will find various FM transmitters with a clean sound level.

    More expensive solution: replace the car radio

    If you are looking for a more permanent solution, you can choose to replace the car radio with one with Bluetooth. There are plenty of car stereos on the market today with Bluetooth functionality. Replacing a car radio does require a little more time and effort than the previous solutions, but you will have a Bluetooth system that is perfectly integrated into your car.

    Old-school, practical way: Hands-free car kit

    A hands-free car kit is a device that you mount on the dashboard of your car and that you connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth. The device has a built-in microphone and speaker, so you can make hands-free calls. A hands-free car kit is a good option if you are on the road a lot and often have to make calls.

    More difficult solution: Bluetooth installation kit

    A Bluetooth installation kit is a set that consists of a Bluetooth receiver and a microphone. You connect the receiver to the car radio and mount the microphone in the car. This way you can make hands-free calls and stream music from your smartphone. A Bluetooth installation kit is a good option if you are not satisfied with the sound quality of an FM transmitter.

    Quick fix: Bluetooth receiver

    A Bluetooth plug is a device that you plug into the auxiliary jack of your car. If you use the receiver in the car, you can even use the adapter as a car kit to make hands-free calls. A Bluetooth receiver is a simple and affordable way to install Bluetooth in your car. The only disadvantage is that you have to charge it after x number of hours of use.

    Conclusion: the best solution for Bluetooth in the car

    There are several ways to build Bluetooth into your car. Whether you choose an FM transmitter, new car radio, hands-free car kit, Bluetooth installation kit or Bluetooth plug, it is important to choose what best suits your needs and budget. With Bluetooth in your car you can safely and easily make hands-free calls and enjoy your favorite music without the hassle of cables and cords. Plus, it's often cheaper than buying a new car with standard Bluetooth technology. So choose the best solution for you and enjoy a wireless driving experience!
