Bluetooth streaming for cheap

Hey guys im new to the forum but have been reading a lot of helpful stuff so thought id post and help too. Sorry if this is posted b4 but didnt find it in search.

Lots of you use tune2air for bluetooth streaming which i almost picked up too but i was at frys and found this which works amazing so far. Link to amazon its called Smartbean

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00LS5...rb_top?ie=UTF8

Does come in different colors and its tiny. Has the little aux plug and short usb cable as well. Hope it helps someone looking to do this. Just connect your phine to it and plug it in your set. Paid $10 vs $65 for tune2air.

Does it support steering wheel buttons, album art, artist/song info on iDrive screen? Does it automatically connect and launch the last played app each time you get in your car?

These are some of the selling features of tune2air, if it can do all that then its an amazing deal for $10.

So i been using it for a week or 2 now and honestly i love it. My usb is screwed so i need to power it off everytime i leave to save power and turn it back on. So far everytime i do turn it on i do c spotify come up on my phone.

The steering wheel buttons dont control anything but volume. When u turn it on put iphone volume at 2 bars before 100% and same for aux volume on bmw screen. Doing this will work perfectly and you can crank it all the way up if u want.

Screen does not display any artist info or anything. What i did was i bought a ac vent holder for iphone. Magnetic 1 and it works great i tested atleast 10 of them and this is the only 1 that works right just tighten it good. Mountek airsnap air vent car mount.

I didnt know tune2air supports all that. Some people told me it doesnt. Might have to look again.

the tune2air basically replicates your ipod/phone being plugged in so you can control it like you would if you phone was directly plugged in. I had one an it worked pretty well. Better than the mysync crap in my Raptor at least...
