    basically I would like to get my stock Bluetooth radio to connect to some external Bluetooth speakers. Thought this would be cool at tailgates and drive-In movie theaters. Anyone know of a hack or device to do this?

    Got a pair of Aomas speakers from Amazon. They paired up to each other to create stereo. Using GoPro type mount and magnetic base. I can place these speaks just about anywhere. image.jpg

    Never heard of this function ever. On any car.

    Just pair your phone to the speakers. Better than garbage FM radio anyways.

    Should have bought a Ridgeline :crapstorm:

    I don´t know if anyone makes an adapter, but maybe there is some kind of bluetooth hub that you could plug into the head unit. Interesting idea for sure.

    You’d probably have to tap into the speaker level outputs on the back of the HU and add your own adapter.

    Only thing I can think of.

    If you follow through with this or find something different, keep this thread updated. Someone else may want to do the same thing.

    I'm confused. Why wouldn't you just pair your phone with Bluetooth and save your car battery

    Yes. That's a battery. I don't care if you have a solar panel, it seems pointless to try and invent a way to send Bluetooth to your car and I turn use a head unit of a car as a Bluetooth sender when you could just cut out the middle man

    Also, that's over 1000 cold-cranking amps of virgin lead deep cycle battery @NovaGTS
