Jan 7, 2018 9:00:00 AM
Most new vehicle infotainment systems come equipped with secure Bluetooth pairing. But if you drive an older car without a built-in Bluetooth device, there are ways for you to connect your smartphone for easy wireless listening that will get you through Manila traffic.
Take a look at your car’s head unit to figure out which Bluetooth solution will work best. We’ve shortlisted some of our favorites for each way of connecting.
1. Pair through your 3.5mm aux port
Make use of the auxiliary-audio input (otherwise called the 3.5mm audio jack) for fast Bluetooth pairing and the highest quality sound for music and calls.

2. Use an FM Transmitter
If your car doesn’t have a 3.5mm auxiliary input, your next best solution is to use your radio. This works by pairing your smartphone to a gadget which transmits to an open radio frequency. We recommend a product that, according to Wirecutter, has the best sound quality in this category.

3. Get a Visor Kit
Upgrade a failing car speaker system without a pricey overhaul by purchasing a visor kit. These attach to your car’s interior through the drop-down shades near the front seats.
These products are a convenient all-in-one package for Bluetooth pairing to your smartphone, listening to music through great quality speakers, and streaming phone calls on the go.
