PlayBook + Bluetooth car stereo = ???

Has anyone here tried binding the PlayBook to their car stereo via Bluetooth? If so, what was the result? Were you able to play music through your car's speakers?

Re: PlayBook + Bluetooth car stereo = ???

I was able to pair portable bluetooth speakers but the bluetooth properties showed no available services, so no joy there either.  Seems like we need a OS upgrade that has the bluetooth stack for stereo audio.

Re: PlayBook + Bluetooth car stereo = ???

I tried pairing it with my pioneer system.  also no joy.  at first I thought it was because my torch was paired with it, so I took it out of the equation.   still no luck.  I hope they give us an update that will fix this.

Re: PlayBook + Bluetooth car stereo = ???

I purchased the Playbook specifically for this functionality so I hope that this is something that we can expect to see.

Re: PlayBook + Bluetooth car stereo = ???

Haha, I can't believe this isn't part of the BT functionality in the PlayBook. Just another reason to wait to buy it. Unbelievable, what a rushed product. I'm trying hard to love it but the problem is RIM is behind it and they listen to nobody. I feel like Lazaridis is in the design lab telling people what to do with the interface and functionality. Get some real user feedback already!

Re: PlayBook + Bluetooth car stereo = ???

Bluetooth was able to find the Hyundai stereo but there is no way that I could find to get the Playbrick to look like an audio streaming device so the car never was able to sync up. I work at a dealership and all the Blackberry phones can stream mp3 or radio Pandora etc wirelessly through the car stereo as a separate function from the phone......ie the device can be accessed through the mode button or media button on car stereo after it is paired. . As can the iProducts and many Androids. So seems to be a Playbricks lack of whatever hardware / software as causing the difficulty in being recognized as an audio stream.

Re: PlayBook + Bluetooth car stereo = ???

So, is it still not possiple to get stereo audio out of bluetooth devices connected to a PlayBook? I am running OS version and get the error "No Services" when I pair the tablet with my car stereo or headset.
