iPhone 4 + car stereo via Bluetooth
I really like listening to my audiobooks, but unfortunately the car stereo my car is equipped with will only "lend" itself to the iPhone and transmit the sound when acting as a loudspeaker (when a call is initiated).
I have noticed though that when a call is in progress and the Bluetooth link between the phone and the car stereo is active, I can start the audiobook app and it's sound is also heard through the car speakers.
While this is an unusable solution for everyday use "as is" - it made me think whether there might be a way to mimic making a telephone call thus activating the Bluetooth connection between the phone and the car stereo and then running my audiobook app?
The car stereo I have is CY11C (a Clarion made for Nissan), it does not play .mp3 or any other media files, also has no aux...
Not sure if you'll find one that does that, they do make Bluetooth headphones separately.

Hi, I don't need a headphone. What I need is a way to make the iPhone send the "I am initiating a call" signal to the car, (thus opening the Bluetooth communication between the devices), and not make the call, but leave the the link intact so I can run my audiobook app and have it use the car speakers.
May be a day late and a dollar short, but you could try one of those FM Transmitter gadgets. I have a Dual AM/FM/CD/Bluetooth receiver in my Crown Vic and it syncs up like a normal BT connection.
