Hands-Free Bluetooth Installation Made Easy with Axxeses Plug-and-play Harnesses

“Hello!? Where are you? You sound like you’re in a wind tunnel (note sarcasm)…” Have you ever heard this from a friend, customer or colleague while using your standalone Bluetooth device in your car? Yes? Thought so…

Most universal standalone hands-free Bluetooth devices for your car can be cumbersome and do not sound very good to the user, or to the person on the other end of the phone. Of course there are exceptions to this, but integrated add-on Bluetooth car kits for your factory stereo are definitely the way to go. They usually include independent microphones and displays. Both of which are very beneficial. But, a down side could be the need of professional installation. This can be a little intimidating for the average weekend warrior/installer. Now, there are plug-and-play harnesses to make their installation simpler.

Specifically Axxesses new line of vehicle specific harnesses.

Vehicle Specific Harnesses for Bluetooth Devices:

Axxess Vehicle specific harness for select Parrot, Novero and Motorola Bluetooth car kits

Axxess engineered this line of T-harnesses for most vehicles. They provide a direct plug-and-play between your vehicles stereo harness, and select Parrot, Novero and Motorola Bluetooth interfaces.

They are literally that simple. They take the guessing game out of which wire goes where for you or your installer.



Bluetooth Car Kits:

Motorola TK30

Parrot, Motorola, and Novero make a full range of compatible kits to suit everyone’s needs. From the budget conscience Motorola TK30, with an LCD screen and voice recognition, to the great Novero TrulyOne.


The Novero TrulyOne features a convenient display that allows users to visually track options, take full advantage of all of your phone’s features, including voice options and phone book sync. It also providesr multipoint connectivity allowing for connection for up to two Bluetooth compatible devices. The TrulyOne is a stylish and modern application. By the way, both of these kits stream music wirelessly, as do most of them.


So, if you are looking for a Bluetooth device for your vehicle, but are worried that there will be too much involved in having it installed, it can be easy as just plugging it in. Well, maybe a little more but you get the idea. Here at Sonic Electronix we have bundled these two items together at a discount to make your lives easier, and to save you some money! So check them out!

Peripheral iPod Accessories

PXDPBy Gideon V. – Sonic Electronix Editor

Now you can integrate your iPod with your factory stereo using the Peripheral PXDP universal iPod interface. This handy device enables you to control your iPod through the factory stereo controls. You can use the factory stereo faceplate to change tracks, skip forward or rewind through songs, and generally tweak any other playback controls. Unlike most external connection devices, this unit will produce CD sound quality. Also, it does not require any RF modulators. It simply connects the iPod through the CD port. Keep in mind that in order to use this device, your radio must be compatible with either a CD changer or Satellite radio.

If you would like to integrate your factory stereo with both an iPod and HD radio, check out the Peripheral PXAMG-A universal iPod Adapter and HD Radio interface. This is the ultimate expandability device, as it provides you an outlet for integrating your iPod, HD radio and many other portable media players. With this device, you will be able to use your factory stereo to navigate thru your music library. And the expansion possibilities are endless, as you can add MP3 players, satellite radio tuners, DVD players, GPS navigation units, and other portable devices through the additional aux inputs. Best of all, regardless of what playback option you use, the sound quality is absolutely tremendous. You will enjoy clear playback without the hiss or buzz of most iPod adapters. Best of all, it will not drain your iPod battery because it also acts as a charger, even when playing back music. It is important to note that in order to add this to your vehicle, your radio must be compatible with Satellite radio.

Both the PXAMG-A and the PXDP require a vehicle specific harness. We carry a multitude of vehicle specific iPod harnesses. These units enable you to add an Apple iPod input to your factory stereo. These harnesses are designed for luxury vehicles such as Mercedes, Lexus, Cadillac, as well as major brands such as Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, Honda, and Toyota. Make sure you make a selection based on the make and model of your vehicle. In some cases you may need to know the year of your vehicle to make sure it fits within the compatibility range of the vehicle specific harness.
