A diversion - hillbilly car kit !

In a bit of diversion from my usual output on here i thought i'd share something I have in my car.

My car is quite old; old enough not to have bluetooth or DAB , but  new enough to have an Aux in socket...

I also have quite a nice  mobile telephone, being a  bit of a gadget girl at heart ...

so yes i could just connect my  phone to the  aux in socket and play music / stream  etc  through that ...   but it's not very  good  for actually talking on the  phone  hands free or  using the speech to text  functions that allow you  navigate or  cue up preferred  music...

There are products that allow you to add bluetooth  to a car without  or you could change the  radio 'head unit'  for a different  one ... 

or you could spend rather less than that   for a slightly  hillbilly  solution  but one that combined with a  suitable  vent or  screen bracket   integrates your  phone and  car  stereo





all in all this  cost about 10 gbp but it gives me  full car kit type functionality ( phone audio through the  car's speakers  and the microphone  is on the  top of the A pillar )  and  allows the phone to play  music or  other media   via  the  car  speakers , and also allows full voice control of my preferred  navigation app.
