    Default 550 - handsfree carphone / music options with Becker radio cassette?

    Hi Everyone,

    My car has the standard Becker radio cassette stereo and I'm looking to find an elegant solution so I can use my phone hands free (ideally through the stereo speakers) and also play Spotify if possible. I don't believe the Becker has a line-in plug.

    There are various options that link to radio via VHF but from experience many are a bit cheap and rubbish and don't work that well. I'm looking for a more 'quality' solution appropriate for the car and would prefer not to have a visible fitting (like a Parrot say).

    Does anyone have any good experiences they can share?

    Thanks and regards,
    John

    I fitted a later Becker to mine that had bluetooth and mp3 playback. Still dated but looked factory.

    Thanks - I hadn't thought of that option! What Becker model have you got?

    Thanks

    Thanks - Nice idea but looks quite an expensive option to get a period with bluetooth Becker!

    There are lots of bluetooth adaptors on ebay that replace the CD changer connection, e.g. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/164022984770 . Some claim to do handsfree calls, others say they don't, and some even have microphones for calls. Does anyone have experience of one that works by any chance?

    Chrome London offer a solution that wires into the aerial https://www.chromelondon.com/mp3-lea...put-6125-p.asp with a 3.5mm plug. I could hard wire connect to that or there's probably a bluetooth solution you could plug into it in the glovebox.

    Any experience, good or bad, that people can share gratefully received!

    Thanks
    John

    Some suggestions here - the Pioneer used to be available with a Ferrari badge & price
