The Sony MEX-BT2600 is much cheaper and does the same I got mine for £96.99

The head unit also has a steering wheel remote socket, if your car has those options and it also supports the bluetooth remote control protocol which allows you to control playback (pause, FF, REW, etc) on the phone from the headunit.
Ok, this is what i'm interested in

I dont have the any steering wheel buttons, but i want the HU to be able to control the tracks, will this work ?

Yes, you can pause, FF and REW direct from the HU. You can also do this from the supplied IR remote and if you purchased Sony's RM-X4S...



.. you can plug that into your HU and it will do the same

I've had my BT2600 about a month now and I cannot recommend it highly enough

well i've had a good look around and found one which looks like it will do the job, as well as go with the interior lights (50 more expensive though)

For it to be able to control the N95 it needs to have the AVRCP Bluetooth profile. I've had a quick scout around on the Pioneer website but couldn't find anything that confirms this. But that's what you need to check for. Make sure it has that and A2DP and supports both Headset and Handsfree profiles.

To be honest, looking at the spec, there's little if anything on that Pioneer that the Sony MEX-BT2600 can't do for over £50 less. In fact, if the Pioneer doesn't have AVRCP, then the Sony really is a steal ! I did notice that the Sony appears to have much better wired connectivity, for example, the AUX IN is on the rear of the Pioneer unit, meaning that if you wanted to connect something else, like an iPod or gaming device for example, you would have to remove the HU first. The Sony's AUX IN is on the front.

Worth doing some side by side comparisons before spending your hard earned

I have the Pioneer DEH-P700BT. With this, I can stream audio from the phone to the HU and control the Play/Pause/Forward/Back without a problem. I therefore assume that the P600BT should not have a problem controlling this.

Do note that you can only skip tracks from your selected album or playlist. It does not allow going through albums etc. from the HU.

Listening to music from the phone has some more cool elements to it:

- I can listen to web streams in my car in good sound quality (even my own stream from home), but this of course requires a data plan. But it ROCKS
- I can play videos in the car with the sound going through my car speakers
- When listening to music from the phone, and running navigation, you get the voice directions from the navtool also through your car speakers

However, these features are not bound to Pioneer, but are possible with all HU brands supporting Bluetooth Audio.

One hint on this is to not super compress the music with Nokia PC Suite, as you can clearly hear a loss in quality when playing the audio through a decent sound system.

One cool thing about the P700BT is that it also has a USB port where you can connect any storage device (USB stick, portable HDD, iPod) and play MP3 and all other formats from there.
