Announced earlier this year, the HTC Car StereoClip (Aux) is finally available in many countries. The Car StereoClip (Aux) allows to wirelessly stream music from an HTC phone (as well as other Android, Windows Phone and iOS phone manufacturers are supported) through the car stereo speakers. The setup is pretty straight forward by just plugging the adaptor into a 3.5 mm auxiliary port and connecting the smartphone after via Bluetooth to the dongle. That said, the Car StereoClip (Aux) supports Bluetooth 2.1+EDR as well as the required A2DP Bluetooth protocol for streaming stereo audio from supported smartphones to the dongle. Furthermore, if connected with an HTC device with Beats Audio support, it features CSR aptX codex and automatically turns on the device's Beats enhancements which makes a real difference.

Maybe I am missing something, but I ask myself who would really want to connect his smartphone with bluetooth to a stick connected to the 3.5mm jack of the stereo when he can use the same 3.5mm connection to plug the smartphone directly there...

Helio, you are right. Everybody has to decide for himself but as I wrote: "I for myself have given up with cables in my car; except for charging my smartphones. However, on short drives I even don't take the device out of my pocket since it automatically connects with my Bluetooth hands-free set. And I don't want to have another cable hanging around which I have to use to connect my phone to my HiFi system." I don't want to have another cable around, especially because I often don't take the phone out of the pocket. The dongle is a utility for cars which come without A2DP.
