Our take on the Blaupunkt Toronto 420 BT

by Ken Nail
Blaupunkt

Why replace your factory radio?

Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.

A classic beauty

Blaupunkt'sToronto 420 BT CD receiver really catches the eye with its classic lines and traditional two-knob layout. But its old school looks won't keep you in the dark when you're driving — the bright white 15-digit scrolling display keeps you in the loop on song and system information, while the simple controls allow you to access an extensive list of features. And beneath the striking exterior, you'll find a modern car stereo that's all about performance.

Bluetooth makes drive time better

Once you've got Bluetooth in your car, it's hard to imagine how you managed without it. With the Toronto, you can answer calls with the touch of a button, and speak as if your caller were sitting next to you. The front panel features a built-in microphone, but you can purchase Blaupunkt's optional external microphone for optimal performance in convertibles or other noisy vehicles. Plus, you'll get wireless audio streaming from your Bluetooth devices too — eliminating the need to plug in your devices when you get in the car.

More ways to enjoy your music

The Toronto features both front and rear USB inputs, giving you plenty of options for hooking up an iPhone®, iPod®, or thumb drive. You can control your playlists and song selection from the receiver when your iPhone/iPod is connected, so you won't have to pick up your device to find your favorite tunes. Of course, you can play your favorite CDs, including discs loaded with MP3 and WMA files. The front-panel auxiliary input accommodates most other audio sources, while an SDHC card slot behind the face gives you one more option for bringing your music along.

Strong sound

The Toronto includes a powerful amp that delivers 22 watts per channel to your speakers, complemented by a 3-band equalizer that'll shape the sound to match your car and your style. A full set of preamp outputs with subwoofer level controls make it easier to expand and control your system.

 Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

Note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver or its optional iPod adapter.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth Technology: The Blaupunkt Toronto 420 BT is equipped with built-in Bluetooth (2.0+EDR) allowing you to make and receive phone calls wirelessly through the receiver; as well as stream music wirelessly from your smartphone to the head unit. In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles:

    • Hands-Free Communication: HFP 1.5 (Hands Free Profile), PBAB 1.0 (Phone Book Access Profile).
    • Audio Streaming: A2DP 1.2 (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP 1.3 (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile)
    Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Toronto 420 BT.

    Pairing: Before using the unit's Bluetooth functions, you must pair your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or audio device to the Blaupunkt CD receiver. You can pair up to 5 Bluetooth-enabled devices, but only one can be used at a time.

    Hands-Free Communication (w/ Integrated Mic): The Blaupunkt Toronto 420 BT allows for wireless communication between the head unit and your Bluetooth-enabled iPhone, Android smartphone, or other Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone. You'll be able to answer incoming calls, as well as dial outgoing calls.

    • Answer/End Incoming Call: When there is an incoming call, the current audio source is muted and a ring tone is played via the loudspeakers of the car sound system. The head unit's display will indicate "INCOMING CALL" and the phone number of the caller. If the phone number is one of your phone book contacts, then the unit will also display the caller's name. "PRIVATE NUMBER" is displayed when there is no caller information transmitted. You can answer the incoming call from the head unit's front-panel controls. You'll be able to speak into the head unit's integrated mic on the front-panel (or optional external mic) during your phone conversation, while the other party is heard through your vehicle's speakers.
    • Dialing Outgoing Call: You can manually enter a phone number, up to 20 digits, using the unit's front-panel controls. The head unit also allows you to access your Bluetooth-enabled phone's phone book contacts (up to 960 entries) for easy access. You can even choose to store five phone numbers as presets for speedier dialing. In addition, you can speak a contact's name into the integrated mic for voice dialing. You can also quickly call the last number dialed.

    Note: An optional microphone (023TRN420M, sold separately) is available for improved audio quality versus the integrated mic, so you can be heard easier over noisy traffic and road noise.

    Wireless Audio Streaming: The Blaupunkt Toronto 420 BT allows you to wirelessly play back stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, or other Bluetooth-enabled devices using a Bluetooth A2DP/AVRCP connection. You can control basic playback functions of your music on your Bluetooth-enabled device from the Toronto 420BT's front-panel. Playback functions include Play/Pause and Previous/Next Track.

    Not recommended.

    Written By Anonymous, Wallingford, CT on Thursday, August 07, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I wanted a conservative-looking radio that did not look like a carnival ride at night, so I got this Blaupunkt. It is cool looking, hence the 5 star Coolness Factor rating. Seems to be built well. However, I do not recommended this radio for the following reasons--- it is difficult to operate while driving, the menus are confusing, the sound quality is not good for analog music (old school rock like The Who or Rush etc), but does sound OK if you listen to electronic music of all sorts (NIN, electronic instrumental stuff, dance stuff, etc), and you can't use the iPod itself to control the music (you have to use the head unit which is as already stated difficult to use). One of the biggest issues I had was the display-- at its brightest setting it was difficult to see. My eyes are fine. Not good when driving on a sunny day in the country and trying to fumble with the controls. I returned it for an Alpine UTE-52 BT, which BTW has a fantastic 24 bit Digital-Analog converter. Much easier to use and sounds great with all types of music. If the sound quality was as great as the Alpine, I would have kept the radio. I know what music is supposed to sound like in a car, as I have had over 15 cars in my time and put radios in all of them. Im also a classically-trained pianist and a music lover. I like the Blaupunkt brand, but it seems they have left behind their once well-respected reputation of making great-sounding radios from 25 years ago. Get an Alpine and thank me later.
    Pros:
    Nice looking radio with a conservative vibe good for electronic music.
    Cons:
    Sound quality is poor overall and struggles with many genres of music (coloring the music with harsh upper frequencies on older music), display is dim, and the radio is difficult to operate, especially while driving.

    Blaupunkt Toronto

    Written By Mike, Grand Rapids, MI on Thursday, August 07, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Installed as the third radio in a 1983 Porsche 944. The original Blaupunkt Monterey was pulled and replaced with a Pioneer piece of crap. Took my time and installed the Toronto in as tidy a fashion as I think the factory would. The install instructions were great as well as the lead identification. The unit looks like it belongs in the car, may spray the bezel flat black.
    Pros:
    Very good overall build quality, decent sound quality. Bluetooth phone setup and subsequent operation are excellent.
    Cons:
    The knobs are too small and need to be knurled. The audio adjustments are limited and not intuitive.

    Poor file handling

    Written By JamesM, Logan, OH on Tuesday, July 29, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Great looking head unit. Looks the least aftermarket of them all. Unfortunately I returned it due to the frustrating way it does not allow you to see your folders properly when using a memory stick.
    Pros:
    Blaupunkt design, great build quality, comes with a case.
    Cons:
    Not HD radio, don't expect to search for your music under artist, then album. It lumps them all together and you have to search through every album track until you get what you want. This I consider a major fail and Crutchfield took it back without any bother. I upgraded to a Kenwood and am very pleased.

    Mixed Bag

    Written By Danny, Vancouver, Washington on Saturday, July 26, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Wanting hands free calling, as well as newer media selections, I purchased this unit to replace an older Blaupunkt Toronto RDM-126 in my E30 Baur TC. Upon unpacking, it was evident the newer 420BT was not built to the same standards as the earlier German made unit. The controls, particularly the DIS button, and the cover for the front mount USB port-felt cheap. The separate rotary encoders for volume and track selection are nice, but again, lack the quality feel of the directional buttons on the older Toronto. Adding to my negative impression- the bezel surrounding the push buttons clearly shows fingerprints. But, by far- the worst thing I encountered with this receiver was (after waiting over a month on back order) the first one I received was defective- supplying uninterrupted power to the antenna motor as soon as the battery was connected. To their credit, Crutchfield showed outstanding no-hassle customer service and shipped out a new bench tested replacement within a week. The second Toronto works as advertised. I really no longer need a CD, and could care less about AM radio, so I won't comment on them. The other signal sources- SD card, FM, Bluetooth and USB/front/rear inputs work well (other than what I've listed under "CONS"). Tested the unit with a 32 gig SDHC card and it works as advertised.
    Pros:
    Excellent overall sound quality and uncluttered panel layout. FM tuner is outstanding: sensitivity, selectivity, signal/noise and frequency response are first rate (just wish they had included HD-FM). Phone calls made from this unit are clear on both ends, (even with the top down) using the external mic mounted top center of steering column.
    Cons:
    Cumbersome iphone interface. The less expensive JVC media players I have in my other cars can directly access SIRI by pressing and holding the "call" button- allowing song, navigation or caller selection by voice command ("She" can even read my email aloud). The Blau does not support this.Track names are also not displayed via Bluetooth.

    Great Stereo!

    Written By Michael, Houghton Lake Michigan on Thursday, June 26, 2014
     
    Great stereo for the money, good clean sound and the Bluetooth is great. Makes phone calls while driving a breeze and I can always listen to my music on my phone.
    Pros:
    Great sound, resonable price, and it has many features that make it stand out above other stereos.
    Cons:
    When you restart your truck you have to reselect the Bluetooth setting on the head unit. The stereo is very well made, although in my own opinion it feels like the buttons are weak, that may be just me though.

    Great stereo but has its quirks.

    Written By Jelloskins, Lincoln, NE on Monday, May 19, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I am struggling to get the sound to be good in a Mustang GT with subwoofer. The X-bass setting is buggy. If you tough this setting, the bass goes crazy and the only way to stop it is to change some other setting, unrelated.

    The "next-track" knob is very painful to use. It is like cracking a safe while driving if you want to change a track. It takes a tiny turn to change tracks, but sometimes it clicks but doesn't register. Furthermore, the track changing has a 2-3 second delay so you turn it slightly, wait, does it change, nope, retry....keep your eyes on the road. The other annoying thing is that you can listen to Bluetooth audio from an iPhone and then when you come back to the care after leaving, it doesn't remember this. It puts it to AM radio, then connects, then you have to change the source. Why is the default from BT going back to AM radio? At least go back to FM. I also have not been able to get it to work via USB to my iPhone 4. Bluetooth is all I have. Maybe it doesn't support this, but for some reason I thought it did. The screen is also dim and not easy to see.

    Regarding the sound quality, if you get the EQ setup, then go and change the Bass outside the EQ, BAM you lose all the EQ settings. If they are exclusive of each other, then they should be arranged in the UI better so that you pick which mode you want, then set it up that way and only that way.
    Pros:
    It's built nice, and looks nice and even sounds pretty good (not great).
    Cons:
    The sound is probably good, but the UI makes it hard to work it. The UI is not that good and very hard to use. The remote makes up for this, but I wish the "right know" was a bit more usable.

    Blaupunkt Toronto 420BT Review

    Written By SteveCP, Sacramento, CA on Monday, May 05, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Overall the feature list and product quality are very good to excellent. I would highly recommend this unit to others. It is superior to most any other system on the market today.
    Pros:
    Bluetooth features work very well. The front and rear USB connections are convenient and well placed. Scan and seek functions are handy when traveling.
    Cons:
    There are a lot of features to learn. Not all of the cool features are apparent from the Spartan appearance of the front panel. Some of the wired connections and their functions are not well explained in the manual

    I chose the Blaupunkt Toronto 420 BT initially because of it's appearance. I wanted a stereo other than the seemingly cheap, run-of-the-mill stereo that everyone else probably has. The Toronto 420 is simple and elegant and fits beautifully flush in my dash. it looks like it came with the car originally, only better. To my surprise, an SD card is inserted behind the face plate leaving me hours of content at the push of a few buttons. No need for CDs or external cords and such. My only complaint with this unit is that i didn't know about it sooner.

    Great Stereo

    Written By Adam P, Raleigh, NC on Wednesday, April 16, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Very well built, great sound quality using the Bluetooth streaming. The looks of the stereo are why I decided to buy it. I wanted to find something that didn't stick out and this was the stereo that gave me that. It looks factory installed. For the money I do not think you can find a better system. I have the external microphone and it works well enough people can hear me when I have my convertible top down at 70 mph
    Pros:
    Looks, features, and price
    Cons:
    The display can be hard to read in the day time but I have a convertible so I expected that to be an issue. Also the amount of AV wires out of the back of the system make it a little hard to get it to fit in my single DIN unit.

    I bought this to replace my original stereo and I am happy with the unit. The trim piece feels a little cheap and it does stick out a bit where the original unit was flush. I like the sound out of it and the dual knobs look unique. It's a nice unit for the price.
    Pros:
    Good value, good sound.

    Protrudes from dash, cheap plastic trim piece.

    My wife took over my car & with her tech challenged abilities managed to put my awesome head unit all out of wack. Couldn't work it at all so the search was on for a much simpler unit and this one did it. An hour with the manual and she had all her stations set up, phone book transferred and knew where the power button was! Sound is above average, small EQ, and basic settings with gain control for the sub. A fine (excuse any offense) chick's unit.
    Pros:
    Happy wife.

    Would highly recommend this unit. Works great in my classic Porsche 911. Doesn't look overling "blingy" - which I find annoying. Go Blaupunkt!"
    Pros:
    Packed with features. Striking design. Simple to use. Like the remote. Like the microphone option. Like the USB extension cable - which does throw enough power to charge my iPhone. Love that you can play for 1 hour AFTER key removed from ignition. Really simple pairing with iPhone.
    Cons:
    Unfortunately - when you shut off the ignition the audio source will NOT stay on bluetooth. Example, if you are streaming music from your mobile phone, then pop into seven eleven for a slushie, when you get back to your car the music source will now default start on a radio band. You will then have to click on source to get back to streaming as source. Not horrible, but not too fun either.

    Exceeds Expectations

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This unit was installed into a 30 year old car for my son, and the car was instantly 20 years newer. We incorporated the head unit, four new speakers, and a remote microphone so that the phone feature is operational. The sound is great, the bluetooth is flawless, and the microphone sounds better than the phone itself. Such a good unit, I am going to by a second one for our RV.
    Pros:
    Works as advertised. Easy installation with Crutchfield's supplied instructions and help line
    Cons:
    A bit hard to navigate; not intuitive sometimes, but easily learned.

    Blaupunkt Toronto for a Vanagon Campeer

    Written By Finn, Taos, NM on Saturday, March 01, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I have been looking to replace the stereo in my Vanagon Westfalia Camper to improve the sound quality and add bluetooth. I wanted to stick with a German name, given the nature of this vehicle and its almost cult following. I found this ti be an really good unit for the price, loaded with useful features and not too flashy as to draw attention or look too out of place. This VW, now 25 years old is not a quiet vehicle, so I can't comment of the nuance it communicates. I do have a separate amplifier and decent speakers, both Blaupunkt, it does all that I ask for for a very reasonable price. BTW Crutchfield suggests that this unit will not fit my vehicle, but it fits perfectly.
    Pros:
    Good value, good looks, great features, easy install.
    Cons:
    Even with the Blaupunkt external mic, the cellphone bluetooth quality is only fair, but to be honest the VW Vanagon might be most of the problem. I do wish the display screen was a bit bigger, it is hard to read at least in this application.

    Almost perfect

    Written By Jeffrey, MA on Friday, February 28, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I gained many of modern day features with thie installation of this unit in my 10 years old English-built SUV. The installation was straight forward with the tools and instructions provided from Crutchfield. I love the simple two-knob design. It goes with the rest of the interior design. The buttons lit up in red. I was expect them to be white based on the pictures. Bright red and neon blue was just a tad too disco for my taste. I was disappointed that It didn't work with the aftermarket steering wheel control adapter. The front USB port was powerful enough to charge a phone or an iPad. It frees up the cigarette lighter for something else.
    Pros:
    Powerful and clear sound, enough to be heard on the highway in a poorly insulated SUV Intuitive interface. Loaded with features (bluetooth for telephone and music, USB input (2), SD card input, iPod control)
    Cons:
    Incompatible with aftermarket SWI adapter. Unable to control CD changer. Flimsy bezel surround.

    Very good unit for replacement for OEM radio in older BMW to add hands free bluetooth. Had some difficulty getting all the wires to fit back into space and ended up damaging plastic trim piece. Called technical support to see about ordering a new trim piece and they elected to replace it free... totally amazing!
    Pros:
    Worked the first time - radio, CD, and BT work great.
    Cons:
    plastic trim unforgiving - make sure you have everything the way you want before installing the trim.

    I was a long time without a working radio in a very much dated car. Now I'm very happy with the new Blaupunkt, and with the installation extras that only Crutchfield had. Cellphones barely existed when I bought the car, but now having the Bluetooth is a great new toy. Now if I can just hold onto my unlimited data plan I can really enjoy this new toy.
    Pros:
    Bluetooth is great for phone calls and for streaming Sirius, pandora, etc
    Cons:
    Radio reception is marginal, but that could be as much the fault of the car as it is of the radio. It creates the old "dead zone" between New York and Philadelphia. This is not an issue if using the cellphone as an audio source.

    This is an overall great product. It is sleek and it looks good in my truck. With Crutchfield being awesome and sending all you need to install the head unit it was an easy install. Thank you Crutchfield team you did it again.

    OK Bluetooth receiver

    Written By Von, Bloomington, IN on Sunday, December 29, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I bought this unit mainly for the bluetooth which I use with my Nexus 4. The BT works well enough with two minor annoyances: (1) if I'm listening to BT streaming and turn the car off and then return, the receiver changes source input to FM so I have to select the BT streaming again (I think because it takes a few seconds to reconnect to the N4 and it decides BT isn't a valid input in that time) and (2) when I shut off the receiver it takes my phone a few seconds to realize it's off and it keeps playing, so I consistently miss some of my pod. This could be an issue with my N4, but it doesn't do it with my Sony head unit.
    Pros:
    Clean look.
    Cons:
    The SD Card slot is nice, a good way to have a music collection at the ready.

    Can you stream the iheartradio app over bluetooth, or must it be connected through the AUX connection? [ tomdible  Mar 18, 2014 ]

    • Any Bluetooth MP3 player should stream any app. It is the Bluetooth connection that counts, not the app, as far as I know.. Could there be special Bluetooth blocks built into the app? I've never heard of such a thing. [ STEPHEN   Mar 19, 2014 ]
    • You can BT all of your audio apps. [ James   Mar 19, 2014 ]
    • Have not try iHeart but have used Sirius, Songza and other internet radio apps via BT streaming. [ Jeffrey   Mar 19, 2014 ]
    • Yes, I stream trough my Android. Via Bluetooth. [ Adrian   Mar 19, 2014 ]
    I only have two issues....my current radio, the Clairon CZ 702 (that I bought less than 6 months ago) display CANNOT be seen in the daylight and the Bluetooth will not stay connected to my iPhone 5. It connects for a day or two and then I have to reconnect. Can anyone comment on the display of the Toronto and connectivity? Thanks!! [ Terrence  Feb 15, 2014 ]

    • Hard to read the display in daylight. [ Jeffrey   Mar 19, 2014 ]
    • I can help with the display, it is really bright with very little issues seeing blue. Also when driving at night there is a dimmer switch. [ Tyler   Feb 17, 2014 ]
    does this unit have a rear aux input? [ Jonathan  Feb 07, 2014 ]
    1 answer
    • This unit does have several connection options, but does not have an analog auxiliary jack on the back. iPod/iPhone Direct Connection: The Blaupunkt Toronto 420 BT's front-panel or reaer-panel USB port can be used to connect your iPod/iPhone to the head unit, via the dock connector-to-USB cable which comes with your iPod/iPhone. The Toronto 420 BT supports audio playback, music navigation, information display, and charging of your compatible iPod/iPhone. Front-Panel Auxiliary Input: A front-panel stereo minijack is provided to allow the connection of almost any portable audio source with a 3.5mm headphone output (great for those non-Apple/Android devices. Simply connect your portable digital music player to the unit's front-panel auxiliary input, and you can listen to the audio from the portable player through the speakers in your mobile audio system.
