    Hi, my iPT (2G) is running the 3.0 firmware, which of course has the bluetooth chip now software enabled.

    I've just bought a new Ford Fiesta, with bluetooth, and it should be arriving mid-July. I just wanted to know if the iPod's bluetooth would be able to pair with the car's bluetooth, and will be able to play music through the car speakers?

    Sorry, I'm a dunce. I think it's something to do with 'A2DP'... Wikipedia says:

    So I'm guessing it should work? Cheers.

    a lot of the car stereos that use bluetooth are simply a stereo profile so it should work, but there is no way to say for sure. I would ask the dealer if you want to know before hand to be sure. If they do not know they should be able to find out for you.

    Rofl.

    OP, if it has Bluetooth in your cd system, then the answer is Yes.
    Enjoy.

    Thanks all. The Ford connectivity website says _no_ to audio streaming over bluetooth, but it says that they tested it with the iPhone 2.1 software; obviously that didn't have A2DP.

    I'll just wait and see when it gets here.

    Yup, it's a brand new Ford Fiesta 1.4l 5dr, in 'Panther Black'
