Yeah Yeah Yeah Agree Thumb stream bluetooth , theres other ways to do it that will mean pluging the phone in every time for a hard wire link, but the Bovee is a tested way to bluetooth. Theres also an option from Visio as I am sure there will be others but we know the Bovee works and also interfaces giving you album title etc on the PCM which other options may not do. Thumb


Received Bovee today, all works as suggested, thanks guys.

Do you leave the Bovee plugged in overnight etc? I assume it is not powered but wanted to check it doesn't cause any issues....


Can you select playlists / tracks via the PCM screen with this?

Does the PCM play all .mp3 files on your thumb drive? When I tried to use a 32Gb FAT formatted drive, I found that roughly half of my tracks got skipped over. Could have something to do with the encoding of the files but I couldn’t work out a pattern.


I have no idea to be honest. (Can’t remember exactly what is on the drive) My 32GB Drive performs better (in terms of time to load tracks and start playing)

Blimey - if I recall(moved to Android 2 years ago) yes if you use Apple Music.
But android device or Spotify/other provider i don't think so...

Yes, y-cable from OPC, it’s about £25. (Assuming you have the iPod interface ports in your armrest)

Bovee 1000 about £90 on amazon.

Will the Bovee allow Android phone Bluetooth phone connection to the head unit too?

I ask because my PCM works strangely with my phone when connected. As in the text messages and phone logs get imbedded in the radio and do not show up on my phone, it also seems to disable all 4G and wifi when connected to the car. Drives me potty and could do with an alternative.

Received the Bovee and Y cable but can’t play music from amazon or anything online because as soon as I plug it in it takes away the 4G from the phone???

At least for the iPhone this works once you get phone calls a prompt appears on how you wish to take the call through bovee or the pcm or just via the headset. Your phone should be able to connect to multiple Bluetooth devices at the same time. One Is the PCM and the other is Bovee.

So the y cable is attached in the armrest, circular connector for audio signal, usb for power, 30 pin Apple connector attached to bovee.

You should get blue led on bovee indicating it is powered.

I assume your phone is paired to bovee (instructions in bovee box).

Has your phone connected to bovee? My iPhone 6 shows headphones icon.

Turn up volume on phone

Set your pcm source to aux or ipod.

Play your music source

You should now be good to go. From amazon/Spotify/YouTube etc.

I can’t understand why you lose mobile 4g coverage.

If you have done all the above, pull out the y-cable and check you haven’t snapped a pin in the round connector. I did that in my enthusiasm the first time as it’s a bit fiddly.

Yes, all connected up correctly and Bluetooth connection fine.i can play the music but it is knocking the 3G/4G as soon as I plug it in so any steamed music isn’t possible. Very weird....not sure why or how it is effecting the internet?

I have the new iPhone XR which is all up to date
