Superior sound quality from the direct auxiliary port in your car is possible, thanks to the LiquidAUX Bluetooth Car Kit from Kensington. Compatible with any Bluetooth 2.0-enabled music phone, it brings new meaning to the term "plug and play."
The 2.4GHz wireless remote allows you to operate the music player and your phone with your thumb.
Packing a lot of function into a little space, the LiquidAUX starts to work as soon as you plug it into any direct auxiliary port.
The steering wheel-mounted remote control works with the adapter to provide wireless audio streaming (A2DP protocol required) and hands-free calling.
Simply plug your phone into the car kit using a 3.5-mm audio cable, then insert the kit into your auxiliary port. Within seconds, digital-quality sound will be pumping through your car's audio system. Charging the unit is done with any USB cable (not included).
The steering wheel-mounted remote control is designed so that you can operate the car kit with just your thumb, allowing you to keep your hands on the wheel. Using the 2.4GHz wireless remote, you can begin and end calls as well as play, pause, and skip music files.
Backed by Kensington's two-year warranty, the car kit also comes with free technical support.
What's in the Box
LiquidAUX Bluetooth car kit, remote control, and 4-foot audio extension cable.

That being said, if you are planning to use this device in your car for handsfree calls, forget it. The microphone is built into the unit, so it is always positioned in your lighter outlet. For me, this is located in my center console by my shifter about 2-3 feet from my mouth. This translates to poor call quality for the person on the other end. I have never completed an entire phone conversation using this device. Not only does the person on the other end sound quiet, but to them I sound like a mess of static, especially when the car is running. I can't imagine what this would be like if my lighter outlet was in my armrest box like I know a lot of cars have.
Overal, I am happy with this product because I did not really plan to use it for handsfree calling. If this is not your situation, I strongly recommend that you pursue another solution. That being said, $25 is tough to beat considering higher end (actually functioning) solutions can cost in the hundreds of dollars range.
Note: If you are planning to use this product with an iPhone be warned that the Previous and Next buttons do not work on the included remote. I think this is Apple not supporting the full A2DP protocol, but I am not sure. I have learned to deal with this, it doesn't really bother me too much.
You'll need to update your iPhone to version 4.1 (July 15 release) so your iPhone can fully support Kensington LiquidAUX Bluetooth Car Kit otherwise you will only be able to "pause, play, and stop" your music over bluetooth. When you update iPhone to the latest free version, you then be able to skip tracks and change the volume.
This device will allow you to do the following:
- skip tracks, change volume, play, pause, stop music with the remote
- answer phone calls with the remote
- hang up calls with the remote
- switch to using your hands with the remote
- listen to phone calls through your car speakers
- listen to music through your car speakers
- speak into the noise canceling mic found in the charging device
what it doesn't do
- your custom ring tones will not play in your speakers instead there's a new ringtone custom to the kensington device that will play instead
The remote control is easy to attach to your steering wheel and I like the extra chrome around the edge of the unit. The audio quality of music through the speakers streams great to the device. I'm very impressed with it and I'm sure you will as well.
The additional USB input is a nice feature so you can charge your phone while it's connected. The attachment does NOT come with a cable, so you need your own to charge your iPhone.
The bluetooth connection to the iPhone 4 is quick and painless to connect and disconnect.Read more ›
The output through my system is a little soft, so I have to turn up the volume at higher level than normal (versus listening to the radio or a CD). This may be due to the phone or the input adapter on the car stereo.Read more ›
