With the numerous car accessories available today, a Bluetooth car MP3 system can usually be modified to its existing MP3 system. By initiating the Bluetooth, you will be able to enjoy its benefits such as taking your mobile phone calls wirelessly and playing tunes on your radio via a compatible MP3 player via Bluetooth. Installation is easy and you don’t need to go to the shop to have this done.

Step 1 - Turn on the Gadgets

Start your car and turn on the radio. Enable the Bluetooth option. Refer to the manual in order to do this because it may vary depending on the car and stereo model. Turn on your phone or MP3 player and turn on the Bluetooth as well.

Step 2 - Search Devices

The code is usually in your car’s manual, and it’s also usually something simple (like 1-2-3-4). The radio will now be paired with your phone or MP3 player, and you can now use your Bluetooth car MP3 system.
