About the Kenwood KCA-BT300

Add the convenience of hands-free calling to your compatible Kenwood receiver. The KCA-BT300 Bluetooth adapter lets you answer incoming calls, place outgoing calls, and scroll through your phone book entries — all without ever touching your Bluetooth compatible cell phone.

When a call comes in, the adapter mutes your Kenwood stereo, routing your call through the car's speakers. Your voice is picked up by the included microphone — mount it in whatever location works for you. Automatic phonebook synchronization drops your phone numbers into your Kenwood stereo without any fuss, and you can select numbers for outgoing calls with a few touches of your finger.

The KCA-BT300 supports music streaming from Bluetooth enabled music players and cell phones with music players, so there's no need to run wires to auxiliary inputs.

Note: Compatibility of this device may vary, depending on your phone and service provider.
