An inexpensive way it to get a garmin nuvi gps that has bluetooth and then pair it to your phone. It works pretty good for me. And then get an rca cable and connect to your phone and then connect to your radio. I have an 09 with the radio that has on the front an rca outlet.

It's kind of clunky but it works.

There are inexpensive Bluetooth modules that plug directly into your aux jack. Your phone communicates with/transmits to the module. The module then pushes the audio to the head unit. Only about $30 so it's about the least expensive way to get your music "streamed" from your phone to your head unit.

This is what I do, the only downside is the BT module needs to either run on battery or a constant powersource. Definitely a clutter of wires everywhere. Really wish Chrysler just offered BT as standard but I couldn't justify the Connectivity package.

I use the CarAudio Connect AUX with Bluetooth by Belkin. I have it plugged in the plug in the center console. I got an audio extension cable to plug it in to the audio jack. The button is just sitting in that little spot between the shifter and the little net thing under the radio. When I get in the Jeep, I hit the button to turn it on. Once it connects, I hit the button to start playing. If I get a phone call (do people still use phones for actual calls anymore?) I can hit the button to answer. Works well for me.

Go to Costco and get the Jabra Freeway Bluetooth that goes on the sun visor. It gives you 14 hours of talk time per charge, super clear, connects automatically every time you enter the Jeep, has surround noice cancelation, turns itself off when you leave the car, has voice commands, will play your cell phone tunes through the radio speakers plus much more. All this for $69. About the best piece of technology I've bought in many years! Bluetooth In-Car Speakerphone, Jabra FREEWAY
