If I get an Auxiliary Input for my 660 and connect them via a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable, i understand that i will be able to listen to my MP3's on my car speakers thru the 660.
my question is, will i also be able to use bluetooth this way?
i guess what i am trying to ask is if the AUX jack works for bluetooth too.
It will make phone calls come thru the vehicle's sound system if you connect your 660 to the vehicle audio system via an auxiliary input on the audio system - be it a built-in or added aux input.
Yes. I works on my Honda Element with a built in 3.5mm AUX jack.
Do you get feedback?
I have the audio out of my Zumo mount connected to the AUX in of the car radio. I can hear MP3s, nav prompts, and the phone calls over the car speakers.
Everyone says they can hear me fine, and I have no problems hearing them.
I do this all the time on my Impala and have never had feedback. However, there is a big difference in audio levels, I have to turn my stereo way up to hear it.
My 660 works well in my GMC Envoy. Never any feedback.
On my "Street Pilot 2820", besides the "Volume" control, there are different volume output levels for each of the following:
There is also an "Audio Jack:" setting that can be switched between "Headphones" and "Line Out".
Also, if you are listening to an "Audible Books" item and something else audible happens (bluetooth call, Nav turn voice prompt) the Audible Books stops were it was interupted and resumes were it paused.
Sound works fine, no feedback, no problems!
Wish I have an AUX IN in my 2000 Toyota Tundra.
On my 650, I didn't have to change any settings in maintenance mode and the sound is perfect coming through my truck's stereo system.
What a great sound !!
I'm surprised to hear all the positive comments. When I try to operate my 660 through the car stereo fm , I get nothing but interference. Is it the hard wire connection that makes the difference? I don't have an input jack on my car stereo.
Yes, hard-wiring makes all the difference; it eliminates the competing radio signal interference. If you have a cassette tape recorder in your car, an adapter for it works extremely well. If you don't have a tape player, as mentioned above, you can install an aux input or have it done -- I think someone mentioned paying $80 including installation.
As much as I thought I wanted/needed the FM transmitter, it is worthless on my car.

This is what I used to add an aux input to my factory stereo:
You also need an RCA cable from the input module to the GPS unit (attaches to the earphone jack)
It took me about an hour to remove my stereo, add the module, and put everything back together.
You will not believe the sound when you hear it - it's amazing.
