I tried the 455 as I was so pleased with the 450 - however I could not get it to work in the D3 - I don't remember the details - so be careful, unless you really need 2 connected devices then stick with the proven 450.

The BTC 450 works flawlessly though, I have been using it for about 3 years for calls and audio streaming.

I can vouch for Kinivo. But recommend the BT-455 that I use. Works great with a phone and an iPad connected simultaneously. The output volume is slightly low but I just crank up the Aux volume a couple of notches. The sound quality is more than decent. Is the D4 Aux better than the D3? That would surprise me. If they are the same, Kinivo does the job well, has a simple interface and installation and I am very pleased with it.

Bove1000

The Bove 1000 works great in my 2010 D4. Shows name of track on the screen, steering wheel buttons all work as advertised. And it is small and compact. See earlier thread on this thread. Course its a lot more money.

Spotify

I use apple and also Amazon Music. Thats in the picture on the older thread. About 5th answer down on this thread. I would expect that android would work ok, maybe there is a mention in the old thread. Oh I remember now, we tried my sons i phone and spotify worked off his.

I've tried the Layen 4.1 in the D4 (2011), using the centre console ipod connector lead, and I'm just getting the message 'Device Error'.
Any ideas?
I don't have an ipod touch (with a 30 pin connector) handy, to see if it's just the Layen playing up. It is a known good unit, and I tried using both of my two connector leads.
Does the car software ever cause issues?
I was under the assumption that the Layen works ok on a D4. My phone pairs okay ( Samsung S7)
Thanks for any pointers gents..

@wilkesalex
can I ask how this works before I go ahead and purchase it!

What I am trying to achieve is to have the iPhone charging sat in the Brodit cradle on the dash, but be able to stream music and podcasts (without internet connection - stored on the phone) via Bluetooth, with the AUX input in the rear of the centre consul.



will this FIREFLY gizmo enable me to plug this in, create a BT connection and presumably take power via a USB adapter in the cig lighter.



as bonus I would like all this to fit and then shut the little door that usually sit over the rear AUX input - to keep small children from fecking with it each time they get in the back of the car!!

installed it this morning - sound quality is excellent. super easy to use.

only negative is that I can't close the little hatch to hide it away so has potential for child damage!!!
we shall see...... Very Happy
