Using a phone in any way while driving could be dangerous and illegal in many states. The A2DIY-C5CD adds Bluetooth to any C5 with CD changer.
If your C5 Corvette has a working 12-disc changer and looking to upgrade to Bluetooth, our A2DIY-C5CD module is for you!. This easy to install kit allows these proud owners to stream Apple music, Pandora, Spotify, Tune In, etc. make/receive calls safely without the need for wires or cradles, all this while also retaining original radio and 12-disc changer. Hands-free Profile (HFP) is not only less distracting than trying to juggle a phone while steering but also the only legal way to do it in many states. Music streaming (A2DP) Use smartphone to stream Pandora, Apple music, Spotify, turn-by-turn directions, audiobooks and more. You may also opt to retain CD changer playback or an Aux input jack instead for playback of portable audio devices (e.g. MP3 players, Satellite radio kits, iPods etc.) A New Bluetooth remote control to changing tracks, adjust phone volume and more. Optional "fast charging" kit is available to keep those power-hungry devices charged while on the road.
