It's not the same quality, FM is limited with the amount of data it can broadcast. so CD is technically better quality.All other things being equal, it is. They used to be trash but they're really impressive now. I have it and it is the exact same audio quality as the factory radio/cd player
You could also just buy an fm transmitter and use the 12v outlet/cig lighter. You can get them for 10-$20 on amazon. No soldering, no disassembly, just plug and play, plus you gain USB ports for charging! Here’s a couple that have a few thousand great reviews,This is definitely tempting since I don't want to run anything but the factory stereo since I don't want to attract car thieves when I'm parked with the top down, but I still kinda want to be able to play CDs, lol. Will think about this one since the price is definitely right and I'm not afraid of a little basic soldering.
P.s. Awesome post and thanks for sharing!
Ahh sorry I never saw this reply!Can you tell me more about how you added this to the cd changer port? You could absolutely add Bluetooth to this and I'd even gladly make a guide on how to do it once I do mine with your cd changer method.
If you have the aux jack already, couldn't you just buy an aux jack to bluetooth adapter to plug in like this?Ahh sorry I never saw this reply!

that’s basically what I purchased then I simply had to splice into an acc wire for power to the unit. It was super easy and the harder part was maneuvering the plugs when removing and putting back in.
I’m still trying to figure a clever way to add Bluetooth a year later lol.
there has to be a better way than using a receiver and adding a usb to power it. I’ve already tapped a power wire for the adapter and I don’t really want to tap another one.

Interesting! Keep us updated with what you end up going with.Hey thanks for the reply!
so the answer is kinda, however I don’t feel that’s the optimal solution here.
I’m not wire wizz but I do have electronics merit badge and know my way around a soldering iron.
that is a battery powered receiver which would require charging like every other day it seems.
The other option I’ve seen is similar except rather than battery powered it needs to be powered by a usb or cigarette outlet.
You can bypass this I suppose by connecting the device directly to a 12v power source ( which I did for the aux conversion) but I was kinda hoping to crowd source a cleaner option.
