GROM Audio has begun shipping a kit that adds factory-like Bluetooth to an existing OEM stereo. The kit connects directly to the factory stereo to create integrated Bluetooth for hands free calling, wireless audio streaming and audio remote control from the car stereo buttons.
The GROM-BT3 also permits direct connection to an iPod, iPhone, and iPad. It can stream from Pandora, YouTube, Tune-In and other services. And in-car voice from GPS turn by turn directions can be played through the car stereo system over a Bluetooth wireless connection, or wired auxiliary connection.
The BT3 can be controlled via steering wheel or radio buttons and users can connect any mobile devices to the car stereo through wires or wirelessly.
The BT3 is integrated into the car stereo system using the CD changer or extension port of the factory car stereo.
It provides automatic audio muting if a call comes in for most devices.
The GROM-BT3 has a built-in Bluetooth receiver and comes with a microphone for full integration in the car. It also includes a car specific data harness to connect to the extension port of the factory car stereo
GROM also announced it is expanding its Belmont, CA headquarters to meet demand for its car kits. The additional facility includes expanded offices, a manufacturing facility, a customer greeting area and product installation area.
