Bluetooth 2.0: Thanks to built-in Bluetooth 2.0 with support for HFP
and A2DP/AVRCP, you can enjoy hands-free communication and wireless audio
streaming from your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone through your vehicle's factory
radio and steering wheel controls. The BTGM-33 supports multi-device pairing,
but only one device can be connected for calls and playback at a time. The
BTGM-33 also allows any previously paired smartphone to automatically re-connect to the
add-on Bluetooth interface inside your vehicle.

answer and end your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone's calls. You will still
need to use your smartphone to make phone calls and to view caller ID
information. An external wired microphone is included to carry on your side
of the conversation, while the other party is heard through your vehicle's
front speakers. The BTGM-33 will automatically mute any source as soon as a call is received, and resumes
when a call is ended.

audio streaming to your vehicle's factory radio. You'll be able to
wirelessly stream stored music, music apps, and other audio content (such as
Navigation apps) from your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone to the add-on
Bluetooth interface and your vehicle's factory radio. You can operate
Play/Pause and Previous/Next Track functions from your vehicle's steering
wheel controls (if equipped). Advanced music browsing and song/artist/album
information will still need to be done from your Bluetooth-enabled
smartphone. The BTGM-33 supports the standard SBC codec for Bluetooth (not
compatible with aptX or AAC). The BTGM-33 will automatically pauses
Bluetooth audio streaming when a hands-free call is received and will resume when
the call is ended.

vent mount for your smartphone. The mount works with most air vent
configurations found in today's vehicle's - including horizontal, vertical, and
round air vents. The vent mount includes a magnetic device cradle and comes with
a self-adhesive magnetic plate which attaches to the outside of your smartphone
or inside of your smartphone case. Once the magnetic plate is installed, simply

remain there. You can quickly remove it too. The mount's ball-and-socket
mechanism allows you tilt your smartphone up or down, turn it left or right, and
