2005 Shaker 500 bluetooth options?

Postby Mustang Barry » Fri Oct 06, 2017 7:43 pm

Has anyone fitted a Bluetooth thingamy to their stock Shaker on an early S197? I'd like to play music from my smartphone and maybe make hands free calls. Music is priority though.

I don't want to spend a lot of money so wondered if anyone can suggest a good piece of kit to do such a thing?

Thanks

I was after the same thing myself. Briefly looked at the PARROT MKI 9200 ( https://www.parrot.com/uk/car-kits/parrot-mki9200#parrot-mki-9200 ) and then got distracted...

Does hands free and music, but has a load of nasty little screens and buttons and things to clutter your dash. :(

Used to be able to get a thingy that plugged into the back to plug in your Apple doohickey before blue tooth was invented

Probably still get them think they where quite “old skool”

This looks like the answer. Alpine EZI-DAB-BT.

Hands free, music inc spotify etc and DAB to boot. All bluetoothed up the ying yang so even the display thingy doesn't have an ugly cable running across your dash and snagging on the gear stick etc.

why not just buy a new double din head unit and have apple play and all that good stuff.

seems like a real pain in the bum just to keep the stock unit

Cost.

It's a bit of hassle but probably at least half the price.

Trust me bin the Shaker 500. I was a big proponent of keeping the stock stereo until I needed space for gauges, I wondered why I resisted for so long, even though the stock speakers it was a vast improvement. I bought a Sony unit from Halfords, £60 it has a USB port on the front and the back and a line in for a Mic.

Replace the stereo and run a mic in (they are cheap and the interior trim just clips on and off without a problem) then you can have the phone connected in the centre console under the arm rest or if you go for a single DIN stereo fascia you can have a storage hole underneath it (or above) and put the phone in there.

I think moleys how to on stereo fitting is on here somewhere; it’s easy to do in an afternoon.
