Product Description
This radio features Bluetooth technology allowing music to wirelessly stream from an
audio source to the receiver you just purchased. Why Bluetooth? From a practical
standpoint, Bluetooth enables your music device (if applicable) to be placed in a glove
box, your overhead console, or even your pocket-places that are dry-without having to
install a separate docking station. In addition, Bluetooth audio streaming will work with
any Bluetooth enabled device, not just one brand of media. Once connected, you can
use your receiver to control your media device and vice versa! Bluetooth has a range of
approximately 30', depending upon conditions, making this a practical solution for boats
VTV's, and more!
