If you’re driving an older car with no Bluetooth or Aux port, you’re probably wishing there was a way you could stream the music from your phone to your car’s stereo. The Xiaomi USB Bluetooth car charger can help!
The Xiaomi looks like an ordinary two port USB car charger. But hidden inside this ordinary charger are some very cool “smart” features. It features a built-in FM transmitter that can play your phone’s music through your existing car stereo, even if your car is lacking modern phone connections. Simply install the Roidmi app on your iPhone or Android phone to take advantage of the many features, including the configuration of the FM station you wish to use.
Once you’ve tuned your car’s radio and the app to the same station, you’re ready to play your local music files. The Xiaomi implements the Bluetooth 4.2 standard, making it compatible with most smartphones. And thanks to advancements in the Bluetooth 4.2 standard, connecting your phone via Bluetooth requires less battery than previous versions. Once connected, you can stream music from your favorite service such as Apple Music, Google Music, Pandora, iHeartRadio and Spotify. Or catch up on your favorite podcasts as they play through your car’s speakers. As an added benefit, if you’re using your phone to navigate, the navigation voice will also play through your car so you can clearly hear the street name of the upcoming turn.
The Xiaomi works great as a car charger as well. Each port can output up to 2.4 amps, so it would be able to charger a tablet, such as an iPad, at full speed, in addition to charging iPhones, Android phones, Bluetooth speakers, GPS units and other accessories powered by USB.
This charger is built with many safety features. This includes protections from over-current, over-charging, short-circuits and over-heating. If the Xiaomi charger detects a voltage problem while plugged into your car, an LED will flash and it will sound an alarm. Even the app will send you an alert so you’re aware of the situation.
