Bluetooth in Shaker 500?

Hey guys, I have an '07 GT with the shaker 500, and I just bought an iPhone 3GS, which has stereo bluetooth and music streaming to a bluetooth capable car. Is there any add-ons or any way to add bluetooth to my shaker? I REALLY don't want an aftermarket radio. THanks!

I don't think there's a way with the stock Shaker 500.

What you COULD do which would be SUPER cool is get the 2010 steering wheel and the new stereo from the 2010... It has BlueTooth!

Does your Shaker 500 have the aux audio input in the center console? If so, it would be an easy thing to buy a stereo bluetooth receiver and plug that in there, then your iPhone could be used to steam music to the car stereo. I think the receivers are fairly cheap, $30-40, or so.

The problem with that is when someone would call you you'd have to hit the answer button on the phone.

But still... That's a great idea!

That's fine, I just want it for music, and if it's bluetooth, I can just grab the phone. But, yes, my stang has the AUX port. Where can I get this bluetooth adapter?

There is indeed a way to add bluetooth to your Shaker 500. I installed the Parrot CK3000 to my radio, it works quite well. Once installed you can make and receive calls without ever having to touch the phone or the radio.

2006 Roush Stage 1, Roush CAI, BBK ceramic shorty headers, H pipe w/ Hi-Flo cats, Pypes Mid-Muffler System, SCT X-cal 3 w/ Bama tunes.
1984 Mercury Capri 5.0 w/ Hooker Super Comp headers, Flowmaster mufflers, 4.10 gears
1999 Ford F-250
2005 Triumph Daytona 955i

I don't want it to make and receive calls, just a Bluetooth-3.5mm adapter. It's so hard to find!

look in the middle console and get a male to male audio connector and you'll be good to go, i rest my 3GS in my cup holder and jam to the radio and when someone calls and i answer it goes through my speakers. its cool enough for me.

Yeah, but controlling it is a *****. I guess I'll stick with that for now.
