I found a thread on the OnePlus forums that states there is no mention of aptX support for the One. I know that has something to do with Bluetooth streaming but that's pretty much all I know. Does this mean the OPO may not be able to stream music via Bluetooth in my car? Is it more dependent on my car's hardware? (I've got a 2011 Hyundai Sonata, for the record, and I've tried to google it with no success.) If it can't, even at $350, I'll have to pass. That's a non-negotiable for me. Can someone with more knowledge on the subject please chime in? Thanks.

Aptx is a new codec for Bluetooth audio. Most devices don't even support it right now. As long as as A2DP and AVRCP are supported you should be fine. I don't think cm supports aptx but aptx isn't related to whether or not you can steam music in your car.

Yeah. Probably even your sonata sound system doesn't support aptx codec.

A bit more info.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/AptX

I would be curious though if the oneplus one supports aptx. I'm thinking probably not.

According to the Oneplus Forums it doesn't. However my 3 year old HTC One X does, so APTX definitely isn't that new.

This is going to make me rethink about whether I actually want this phone or not....

Google isn't bringing up any recent information on this topic here, other than a general consensus that the opo *probably* doesn't have aptx. But some mentions that it might be add able? Any ideas on this? Or further information that my Google-fu missed?

I didn't really care before, but I've got a high end Bluetooth speaker coming in the mail, it supports aptx, and so I'm curious thanks all!

My friend has the same exact car as you and my OnePlus One running CM12 nightlies works perfectly fine via bluetooth. This includes streaming music and answering calls for me.

That's pretty cool! Yeah the Bluetooth should work fine for most things, but what's being discussed now is higher quality Bluetooth, a special codec called 'aptx'. Bluetooth should work fine without it, but just standard quality only.
