Our take on the Blaupunkt BT UP Bluetooth® Dongle

by Jon Paulette

Bring Bluetooth to your boat

Once you get used to using Bluetooth to stream music in your car, it's kind of hard to give it up when you're out on your boat. If you're missing the convenience of wireless audio while you're on the water, upgrade your Blaupunkt marine receiver with the BT UP Bluetooth dongle. This handy little device allows you to stream music from your smartphone to marine receivers like Blaupunkt's Capri.

The BT UP is an audio streaming receiver that works with Bluetooth version 3.0 (it's also compatible with 2.0). Connect it to your boat's 12-volt ground, plug it into your receiver's rear aux input, and you're ready to cue up your favorite boating music. The compact design makes it easy to stow out of the way, and the 33-foot operating range means you'll be able to move freely about your vessel without losing the connection.

Add-on Bluetooth Receiver: The Blaupunkt BT UP is an add-on Bluetooth receiver for car and marine head units without built-in Bluetooth, but do offer a rear-panel Aux input.

Bluetooth Audio Streaming: The Blaupunkt BT UP features Bluetooth (version 3.0+EDR) with support for Bluetooth audio streaming (A2DP). The BT UP supports audio streaming of stored music and music apps on your Bluetooth-enabled device (such as your iPod/iPhone, Android smartphone/tablet, or Blackberry) to your connected head unit. Music control and song/artist information will still be done through your Bluetooth-enabled device. The BT UP has a wireless range up to 33'.

Note: Before using the BT UP, you must pair it to your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or audio device. Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some mobile devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the BT UP.

Connections: The BT UP add-on Bluetooth receiver connects to the rear-panel Aux input of your car or marine head unit. The BT UP features an attached 21" minijack cable and includes a 7" minijack-to-RCA adapter. Attached to the BT UP is also 21" power/ground wires that will need to be hardwired to your vehicle's or boats electrical system.
