Well, I'll tell you exact what I got:
EDUP EP-B3511 Handsfree Bluetooth 3 Receiver / Adapter
Ignore that silver thing. That's a plug gender changer. Pull it out and you can plug the "headset" thing from cassette adapter into the same place. On the other side is a MicroUSB plug for power/charging. So I basically find another MicroUSB auto-plug (I have a 1-to-4 12V vehicle power adapter) to feed this.
Pairing is painless. First time you start it up, the powerbutton has blue and red LEDs with fast flashing. Which means it's waiting for pairing. Pair it from your phone, scan for EP-B3511, and it'll pair automatically from almost any smartphone. it has its own little battery but just leave it plugged in, IMHO. When you come back to the vehicle (I have a car dock for my phone) I plug that in, then hold the adapter's button for about 3-5 seconds, and it will re-pair with the phone.
Volume... Seem to be okay, and you can always pump it up from either the stereo itself or from the phone. I usually don't have to.
The adapter can also show under MPOW or some other brands.
