Well, I'll still speak on behalf of SDers who've had a bad experience with this. Read the reviews first. This Bluetooth dongle seems to be the darling of the SD community, but it's very poorly built (or they have a very poor quality control department):
Doesn't "remember" devices. If it turns off, you'll have to hold a button to re-pair devices (ymmv).
It doesn't turn on automatically when power is supplied. You will still have to hold the button.
Small capacitors produce very tinny sounds if you don't have a beefy amp/pre-amp. This means that any headphone connected to the adapter will produce sounds akin to a birthday card from Hallmark (read previous thread where an electrical engineer dissects this device and gives an analysis).
Overheats in a matter of minutes when streaming audio and charging at the same time, leading to audio cutting out completely (ymmv).
Etc. - read reviews and other threads.
I bought mine through BuyDig because the post went straight to the front page in a matter of minutes at $15/dongle. I had to return my device due to so many pitfalls. When I posted the negative aspects of the device to a previous thread, many other SDers confirmed that their devices behaved similarly, but a lot of users excused the flaws due to the price point. It may be better to read the reviews to see if this device suits your needs to avoid losing $13 this time around (this deal comes by very often).
ive actually done alot of reading about dongles and other bluetooth means to hook up a tablet to my car stereo, most "decent" ones i've read about on car audio sites, etc. are minimal $50 (they usually have separate wire leads for power/ground that you wire into your amp/receiver). This seems to be a to good to be true scenario.
