Before changing out Porsche CR-1 and CR-2 cassette radios, consider this add-on module instead.

Just because you drive an older car does not mean you have to settle for old technology and in order to stay up to speed; many Porsche owners have opted to change the factory radio in favor of one that offers modern features such as Bluetooth, navigation etc. but did you know the factory radio is also able to support these features? Simply bring smart device (e.g. Smartphone, Tablet, etc.), pair to the BLU-CR12 and open internet music streaming sites, GPS, audio books and more in Porsche 911, 964, 993, 944, 968 with CR-1 and CR-2 radios. Unlike $30 FM modulators; the BLU-CR12 connects directly to radio 13-pin "CD" port which results in the best possible sound for listening to music and other audio content while on the road. (CD changer if present, must be disconnected). This plug-n-play, affordable wireless solution is best for adding Bluetooth music streaming features without changing the original radio.
» Works on Porsche with CR-1 and CR-2 radios only.
» Stream music from any A2DP enabled device. Does not support hands-free-calls. See our A2DIY-CR12 instead.
» New!! Caller number announced on car speaker. (Must use handset to answer)
» Stream from popular services like Spotify, Pandora, Apple music, XM radio and more
» Stream navigation applications (e.g. Waze, Google maps etc.) with voice guidance on car speakers
» Retain original look, feel and dashboard components
» Quick installation behind dashboard in less than 20 minutes
» Optional: "Smart remote" control
[To avoid costly returns, It is important to observe all requirements, warnings and install guide information prior to purchase.]

    I worked with Jay and the team over the last few months by providing my CR-1 (Porsche 968) unit for additional R&D work for this unit. They could not have been more helpful in the process by providing updates and expert advice regarding the installation in my car and even making small repairs to the unit.

    I now have the original CR-1 back into the 968 (1993 model), using the original under seat amplifiers. Not only does the Bluetooth unit operate without fail (instant connection, never needing to be paired after the initial setup to my Iphone), and with excellent sound quality - by using the CR-1 the sound quality much improved over the previous (and typical for the 2000's) JVC CD-player single-din headunit. I cannot over state that, as I first replaced all the speakers in the 968 without seeing much improvement, until I put the CR-1 back.. totally worth the hassle.

    I now have the original, back to OEM look, with all the nice features of that time period with dials for balance/fader/bass/treble - instead of it locked behind a menu, better sound and full Bluetooth connectivity. Very happy wit the unit and the service of Jay and the team.
