Bluetooth Stereo Bridge

bluetooth mouse

[Chris] had made a sturdy mount in his car for his iPAQ. He uses the iPAQ for directions and playing mp3s. After nearly ripping apart his line-in cable every time he took the iPAQ out of its cradle he decided to create a wireless solution. He chopped up a pair of HP FA303A Bluetooth headphones to extract the receiver portion. The headphone’s band is prone to breaking so it might be possible to find a damaged pair for cheap. The receiver was placed into an old mouse. Once the buttons were hooked up to the mouse buttons and a voltage regulator added the unit was ready to start streaming audio directly to the stereo.

  1. Sometimes you read an article and although it has no immediate use, it can give you a simple idea you never thought of before. I don’t have an ipaq, but all those wireless gadgets have to break sooner or later, don’t they? they can be a great source to scavenge a wireless transmitter/receiver. Do i see a sense of fear in my wireless mouse?

    *picking up scalpel*

    oh yeah, it’s fear allright!

  2. iPaq doesnt have enough space on even a 1gb sd card to be usefull for music. I take my rio riot in the car with me. 20gb hd with a belkin male to male audio cable to the reciever. works great.
