call the company and ask if it is compatible with the iPhone.... that i all that i can think of.. it also helps to do this when buying an expensive device..

i was advised that it would work.
the unit plays mp3's so that could be the prob.
even when i convert my iTunes music to mp3 it still doesn't pick it up? very odd

yes that is weird... do you have another mp3 player that you can use to test this device?

unfortunately know, but the guy who installed it said it worked fine on his fone, a nokia something or other. so i know it works
its gotta be to do with the way the iPhone or i products store the music
cant be mp3 must be a derivative thereof

It wont but i know what will......

There is a simple reason it wont work and that is the iPhone cannot stream music via Bluetooth.

The kit will work as a bluetooth handsfree kit but not to stream music. There is only one product i know that can do that and that is on the link below.

yeah, im a bit more clued up on it now

the iPhone don't stream a2dp because basically Apple are sh#ts!
there is a dongle that will fit the ipod port at the bottom of the fone from 8bananas that will stream a2dp on the iPhone. its from america and costs $75.
