ilive anyone?

So i was in walmart, i saw this little device for $24.80 called the ilive bluetooth reciever. I was skeptical of it,. but its works perfectly for me,
I have a blackberry 9930 my x5 has the oem bluetooth. I connect this little adapter to any input in my x5. _ i have multiple aux inputs since i have the grom audio usb device and OEM dvd player. back to story the little device turns that audio input into a bluetooth streaming device. I can now stream pandora or my music from my telephone via bluetooth in my 06 x5 non nav system.
it uses a micro usb to charge. battery on box says 2.5 hours. I have not confirmed it yet. I also can confirm while the music was streaming a few calls came in. it muted pandora and the oem bluetooth then took over. that was the part that shocked me. I hit the r/t button just to verify my phone book was still loaded and it was. when the call ended my pandora music came back on..
$24.80 for bluetooth streaming in my truck. I'm a happy camper. ilive model IAB13B bluetooth receiver and adapter.

this thing is small too about the same size as 2 sd memory cards put side by sideWith the grom streaming unit i have to run a microphone and lose my
additional aux input. 1 power button, 1 pair button, 2 LEDs 1 mico usb charger slot 1 line out heaphone jack.

With the i live no microphone to run as its only purpose is to stream the music. (AD2P) My OEM bluetooth handles the phone calls.

it connects via a headphone lineout cord to an aux input. also tried it in my house to stream music to my stereo i put and headphone to rca jack cable on it and it worked perfectly. Im a post some pics later on. but if you google it amazon and a few stores had it cheaper than wally world.

Correct. i have it connected to my aux input on my grom usb in my X5.
i had to get a rental this weekend , They gave me a nissan rouge at the rental car place .. it had no bluetooth. Just a head phone jack for aux input. I connected my headphone cable between the nissans aux input and the ilive. clicked on aux on the nissans radio and I was then able to stream pandora for my long drive through the nissans stereo. worked like a charm.

Ok, this is a simple mod enough, and it is going in my to do list...

my wife has a 2011 335xi Mpackage with all those little bells and whistles, and she can stream pandora directly to her car via BT, and she was laughing at me for not being able to do that...

Now we will see!!!! {insert evil laugh here}

I will do a write up on this - this mod is working, and it is working as advertised...

Factory AUX
ilive thingy
a smart phone capable of streaming the AD2P, and it is also cool if the phone is capable of multiple simultaneous BT connections, as the telephone BT remains operational... The streaming works good for pandora, for google navigation and for waze voice directions, for skype - with the skype, the incoming sound comes through car's speakers while the phone's mike is picking up the voice from the driver...

very nice thingy... I am in the middle of this mod, as i manufactured my own AUX cable (gee, just 3 wires!!), so i will try to write it up and post it later...
