If looking to preserve your American classic as original possible while also being able to stream music from smartphone; look no further.
Wouldn't it be nice to simply step into your ride and be able to play music apps from smartphone without wires or cables dandling from the dash? Just because you drive an older car does not mean you have to settle for old technology and many have opted for a $30 cigar lighter FM transmitter (which has been around for decades), and not what we consider "new technology" while others have opted to replace radio with aftermarket, but does doing any of this add value to your American classic? These are two of many suggestions made to upgrade these cars, until now! Enter the BLU-C5. Our BLU-C5 kit is assembled exclusively for C5 Corvette owners who want to keep the original radio while also being able to enjoy internet music (Pandora, Spotify, XM radio, Apple music), audio books, GPS and and other important application while on the road to work or cruising around town without altering the look and feel of the dashboard or investing in a new radio. For added convenience an optional smart remote and charging port can be added (Click installation guide link below for details).
The BLU-C5 kit replaces trunk mounted 12-disc changer (if present); but those who wants music streaming plus ability to retain the 12-disc changer, purchase our A2D-C5 instead.
» Bluetooth 4.1 A2DP (music streaming) profile from any Smartphone, Tablet, Kindle and more.
Does not support phone calls. Purchase our A2DIY-C5 instead.
» Users may install module directly to radio behind the dash OR (if pre-wired); to 10-pin CD changer plug in trunk or hatch (Not FM modulated)

» Enjoy Apple music, turn by turn directions, music internet sites such as Pandora, Spotify etc. (Does not support phone calls)
