Brera Bluetooth

I have been through various threads on here about the blue and me function but my 06 Brera doesn't have it

But as I have the Bose sound system, I don't want to mess it up with an after-market unit, and the sound is plenty good for me, i just want to be able to use my phone hands-free and maybe stream music.

is the bluepoint adapter compatible with the standard head-unit. It's says it's not on the listing on the bluepoint website, but I'm sure I read somewhere that they do work fine.

Also does the standard head-unit have a phone mute linein?

That adapter does (sort of) work with the standard head-unit. You should be able to use it to speak and listen to your phone through the microphone provided and the sound system speakers via bluetooth. I think you will still need your handset to dial out unless you have voice dialling support. You should also be able to stream music via bluetooth as well. I find the bluetooth connection is a bit temperamental, however - you may well find that if you switch the engine off and remove the key it won't automatically reconnect, for example. Also, you will need to manage music playback via your 'phone or whatever, so it's not really handsfree. I don't think the head-unit has a phone mute line-in. Also, you will have to search out and find firmware updates on the internet, and these are installed via the USB connector. You can play music from a USB stick, but I found the quality was dreadful (far worse than Bluetooth). Also, it can only mimic a CD autochanger, so working out what tracks you're playing is just about impossible because all it will do is display arbitrary CD and track numbers. YMMV, etc.
