How to Connect Phone to Car Stereo, Use a Miccus Mini Jack
It's so easy to connect phone to car stereo, a caveman can do it, OK, maybe not a caveman, but there is no need to spend a ton of money on a new Bluetooth car stereo, all you need is the Miccus Mini jack, it's extremely easy to install and pair up. Once it's installed, you can stream audio from your smart phone, ipod or any other Bluetooth wireless device, right to your cars stereo, literally within seconds.
I recommend the Miccus mini jack because I own two, one for my daughter, and one for me, and I only had one problem, leaving my car because my favorite song is playing, lol. I wanted to stream music from my phone to my car stereo but I didn't want to spend a ton of money, and I wanted to do it wirelessly.
Two things I can't stand, radio commercials, and a bunch of wires hanging in my car; it seems that every time I reached for my drink in the cup holder, I was pulling on some sort of wire, and at the same time, there was a commercial on radio, blasting out an advertisement, but those days are over.
As you can see in the pictures, the Miccus mini jack is extremely small, but extremely useful, a lot of thought was put into this little Bluetooth wireless device. It's a very small device; it has a USB port for charging, and a 3.5mm audio jack that plugs directly into the 3.5 mm audio jack on your car's stereo.
Bluetooth Wiring Options
What? You don't have a 3.5 mm audio jack on your car stereo, no problem, because on the back of most car stereos, there are RCA jacks. The Miccus mini jack comes with an adaptor to connect to the RCA jacks on the back or the front of your car stereo, Miccus has recognized that there a many different options for hooking up their device, so in the box, they give you three combinations of wire sets to meet your needs, like I said, a lot of thought went in to this awesome little device.
Here is a look at a couple different RCA input jack styles
Charging the Miccus Mini Jack
The Miccus mini jack comes with a USB port for charging, most phones today come with the same kind of charger, so all you need to do is charge it from your phones car charger.(USB wires included, but no charger) If you're like me, you probably need more than one USB port for your car charger, so it's a good idea to update your car charger to a 2 or 3 USB port charger, then there will be plenty of room for the Miccus mini jack.
The Miccus mini jack will hold a charge for about 7 hours, but I like to keep mine plugged in all the time, it just makes it easier, and it's always completely charged. Some car stereos have a USB port right in the front panel like my daughters car (see the picture) so you can keep the Miccus mini jack plugged in to the stereo without any wires hanging.
Size Does Matter!
Another great feature about this Bluetooth device is the size; it's extremely small so it's easy to hide. My AUX jack, along with my power port, is located in my center console, so I install the Miccus mini jack once and never see it again, (see the pictures) and if you have it installed in front of your car stereo like my daughters car, you don't even notice it there because it so small.
Note:, New to the Miccus Bluetooth family for 2015, is the Miccus Mini-jack AX4 with a built in microphone for answering calls, for cheap money, you can afford to own high end accessories for your vehicle or home.
Pairing the Miccus Mini Jack to Your Phone
Pairing the device to your phone, ipod, or Bluetooth device is easy, it's takes less than ten seconds to do, and once you pair it, you don't have to pair it every time you get in your car, it stays paired. So when I leave my car, the device automatically shuts off, when I return, the Miccus mini jack automatically connects to my phone. Another nice feature is if I get a call while streaming music, it becomes a hands free device, the music automatically shuts off and your caller will be heard through the car speakers, that was pretty exciting for me. When the call is over the Miccus mini jack automatically goes back to the music.

Do Your Research Before You Buy
If you're on the fence about this device, or you're considering some other Bluetooth device, do more research, read customer reviews, the best way to judge a product is by the customer reviews. I looked at the features and prices of many different Bluetooth wireless devices, what sold me on the is the way it automatically pairs up with my phone when I return to the car, its miniature size, and it's not hanging from a wire.
