Are you debating which of two device is better to upgrade your American classic --- FM transmitter or the BLU-C5?

Wouldn't it be nice to simply step into your ride and be able to play music applications without wires or cables dandling from the dash? In order to stream music applications, many C5 owner have opted to replace the radio; but does replacing radio really add value to your American classic? With the BLU-C5 music streaming module (exclusive to C5 Corvette); corvette owners are able to stream internet music (Pandora, Spotify, XM radio, Apple music), audio books, GPS and other important application while on the road to work or cruising around town all without altering the look and feel of the dashboard or investing in a new radio. To enhance the experience users may add an optional AUX input (wired connection) for their devices with a 3.5mm jack (e.g. MP3 player, SiriusXM kit, car play etc.); smart remote control (helps to keep eyes on the road); USB-C charging port (keep devices charged while on the road).

    I recently installed the bluetooth system in my C5 and it is amazing. Install was easy and it works perfectly. The system links quickly to my iPad and the remote attached easily to the parking brake handle and also works perfectly.
    Thank you to Jay and for his assistance.

    Following the death of my factory 12-CD changer in my C5 Corvette, I sought a Bluetooth solution to ridiculously expensive repair or replacement of the complex 12-CD changer. I tried a Bluetooth/FM modulated solution which was susceptible to interference from other radio stations.
    Finally I found the affordable BLU-C5 Music Streaming Kit from Discount Car Stereo, which was the perfect solution while maintaining the factory Bose radio and superb sound system! Installation was a snap, taking less than an hour with most of the time consumed running the power line from the trunk to the cabin fuse block located behind passenger toe board.

    Thanks Discount Stereo for marketing and selling this great product!
