Few years ago Bovee (Viseeo) released its best seller Tune2air WMA1000. It is a Bluetooth adapter that connects to an integrated 30-pin cable (non-USB) for an iPhone in a car to enable Bluetooth connection between an iPhone, Android or Windows phone to stream music directly to the head unit. There are many car models that have this iPod / iPhone system such as BMW, Ford, Audi Music Interface (AMI), Mercedes Media Interface and Volkswagen Media-in Multimedia Port (MDI).
To understand if the WMA1000 is compatible with your car is pretty easy. If your car has an integrated iPhone media interface with a 30-pin cable then it will work. However, in other cars the iPhone media interface (BMW, Lexus, Infinity, Ford, Fiat and others) was based on USB port. A lot of people think that if you have a USB to 30-pin cable you can connect Tune2air WMA1000 and it will work without any problem. But they are wrong. Due to the differences in the head units and that kind of iPods media interfaces compared to the integrated 30-pin cable interface the WMA1000 is not compatible.
For that reason Bovee (Viseeo) had to release a new product Viseeo Tune2air WMA2000, which is specifically designed for USB audio interface. This device is also compatible with aftermarket stereos that have Apple certified MFI USB type iPhone ports.
Lastly, recently Viseeo released a third version of Tune2air WMA3000. This device was released to solve two last issues:
Music interface is missing the integrated 30-pin cable
Viseeo Tune2air WMA3000A version was released for that reason. It comes with the cable already integrated into it. Please note that it is compatible only with Audi Music Interface (AMI), Mercedes Media Interface and Volkswagen Media-in Multimedia Port (MDI) because other car manufacturers use a different cable connection port.
For BMW models that have USB / AUX-IN iPod integration system
BMW designed their interface in a way that the power to the music device was supplied through a USB port and a sound through the AUX-IN (3.5 mm jack) port. So if you will connect WMA2000 it won’t be recognized by this interface.
The Bovee Viseeo Tune2air WMA3000B comes with a special cable that splits into the USB and a 3.5 mm jack and enables the Bluetooth connection to your mobile phone or music players leaving the original functions of the interface.
