    This one also works well and the car's USB charges it while in use. Plug it in and forget it. Pairs automatically after the first pairing too.

    If you like it loud, a side note is, most of these play about 10% lower than if connected through the cable. Nature of bluetooth I guess...

    Re: bluetooth audio streaming

    Here is my solution.

    $19.47 Monoprice Bluetooth Receiver Link: http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...2704&p_id=7364

    $0.90 Monoprice USB A Male to USB A Male (for powering the receiver) Link: http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2

    $1.50 3.5mm male to male stereo cable (I had several laying around the house) Link: http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2


    All set up in the console:


    The phone automatically pairs within range. For my Android phone, I use the Poweramp music app which launches and plays music on Bluetooth connect. It will automatically pause when the bluetooth device is not in range or it is off.

    Re: bluetooth audio streaming

    I'm resurrecting this thread because I got an iPhone 6+ and it's so big that it doesn't fit in ANY of the CTS-V's center console cubbyholes. Literally the only place it fits at all is in the top half of the armrest, diagonally, and even that's just barely. And there's no way a cable would fit in there along with it. And it doesn't really fit in the cupholders either.

    So now I need to look into streaming bluetooth adapters because I can't put the phone anywhere in the center console, at least not without extensive modifications. So a number of the solutions posted already in this thread should work, but there is one thing nobody mentioned in any of the reviews of any of the products - track listings. Do the track listings show up on the infotainment screen like they do when you have the phone physically connected? Also, what about the steering wheel controls? Because that, and the track info on the screen, are features I would not like to give up.

    Has anybody found a bluetooth streaming solution that also enables the steering wheel controls and shows track listings?

    Doesn't show track listings but volume control works on steering wheel.

    Thank you for this post. I agree that we should sticky it as well. This was the only problem I could find before buying my V.
