My car doesn’t have Bluetooth connectivity, so I have to plug my iPod into the Apple-specific input jack in my car to listen to music through the car’s speakers. If I had the Kinivo BTC450 Bluetooth Hands-free Car Kit, I could add Bluetooth streaming and hands-free calling just by plugging into the 3.5mm audio jack that my car also has. The Kinivo supports Bluetooth HFP, HSP, A2DP, and AVRCP profiles and aptX for CD-quality streaming; it also has a built-in microphone and music controls. It doesn’t have a battery, so you must keep it plugged into the car’s power supply. It’s available at a sale price of $39.99 at Kinivio, and it’s also available for $39.99 at Amazon, where it’s eligible for Prime shipping, so you can be sure of getting it in time for gifting.
