Quick Overview

Picture this:

You’re driving down the road in your cherished classic or hot rod. You reach over and with a simple twist of a knob on your original radio, you tell it to phone your house. The call comes in over the radio and when finished, returns you to your music. You then get nostalgic for that certain song you haven’t heard in a while, so you twist the control again and tell the radio to start playing that song. For a minute you actually forget that you aren’t in your modern car but in your classic car. Sound like science fiction? Not with the new BTU-1 with Voice Command from Aurora Design.
While some companies call off-the-shelf adapters or clunky boxes “solutions”, Aurora Design is the only company to offer a custom designed, fully integrated, full featured, Bluetooth/USB/MP3 solution that truly brings your radio into the 21st century. Because the BTU-1 was designed to fully and seamlessly interface to the FMR-1 receiver, no aftermarket add-on product is even in the same league. No cords to fumble with, no hard to reach little buttons, no fiddling with the radio to get into the right mode, the FMR-1/BTU-1 combination is fully automatic just like a modern car. Using only your original radio controls, you can have a truly modern solution that rivals any new car!
Streaming audio from a USB FLASH Drive or from your Bluetooth device is easily controlled with just a twist of a knob. Start and stop playback and skip forward and backwards through your songs. Answer and place phone calls just as easily. With literally thousands of songs at your fingertips, you’ll never run out things to listen to on that cross country tour! And so you don’t get lost, let your Bluetooth device that supports turn by turn navigation direct you to your destination through your radio.
The microphone on the BTU-1 is placeable anywhere in the car for best performance and with advanced noise cancellation software you always get the best sound possible. The microphone comes with a 9.8’ (3m) cord so it can be place in the best spot for your car. Notice on most modern cars with hands-free operation, the microphone is mounted on the headliner right behind the windshield. With the BTU-1’s microphone this can also be easily accomplished.
No other product can boast the easy of use, performance and features of the BTU-1. For the ultimate in 21st century performance in your classic radio, look no further than the FMR-1/BTU-1 combination.
Designed to meet automotive OEM and SAE performance specifications, the BTU-1 represents a no compromise design. All critical components are full automotive OEM grade parts, not lower cost, lower quality parts designed for aftermarket/consumer products. Every aspect of the design and operation of the BTU-1, no matter how insignificant was scrutinized, resulting in a product that performs beyond the expectations of even the most demanding user.
Unlike many aftermarket Bluetooth products that are not certified or have been heavily modified, the BTU-1 is based on a fully certified module. With certifications for FCC, IC, CE and the Bluetooth SIG, you are assured of the most robust, compatible product available.
Aurora Design automotive products are built in a 33,000 sq. ft., ISO 9001:2000 facility located in the USA. With a capacity to place 1,800,000 components per day, 2D and 3D X-Ray inspection and full traceability back to the component level, the highest quality assemblies are assured.
Still considering that reproduction or aftermarket radio?

Product Description

The unbelievable new BTU-2!
The original BTU-1 took the classic car hobby by storm! Never before had so many advanced features been packed into an original radio. Bluetooth audio, hands free phone, USB audio playback, USB charging, Voice Command... Now the BTU-2 takes this experience to a whole new level by adding to the already extensive list of features found only on the BTU-1!
• Latest Bluetooth 4.1 based solution for greatest compatibility: While the Bluetooth 3.0 standard was fine for the original BTU-1, it is now over 7 years old, ancient in technical terms. The BTU-2 uses the latest Bluetooth 4.1 specification for the best compatibility with yesterday’s, today’s and tomorrow’s devices!
Fully backward compatibility with Bluetooth 3.0/2.1 +EDR, 1.2 and 1.1
Fully certified module for FCC, IC, CE and Bluetooth SIG
• Voice Assist:
The BTU-2 can speak to you in English, Spanish or French to help walk the user through basic operations. No need to remember obtuse functions or operations.
• Fully integrated with the FMR-2:
No need to fumble with the radio or your phone to make sure they’re in a certain mode to get the Bluetooth/USB to work, or remember confusing controls that change function in different modes, the BTU-2 controls are fully integrated into your original radio. Want to start playing music or initiate a phone call while listening to the radio? Just twist the volume control! All controls work the same in all modes!
• AAC audio support: Aurora Design is a licensee of the high quality AAC codec. Music encoded in AAC format on your Bluetooth device will playback without conversion to low quality SBC. Music files can be copied directly from your iTunes® library to your USB drive without quality robbing/time consuming conversion.
• Ogg Vorbis support:
Music files encoded in high quality Ogg Vorbis format can also be intermixed on your USB drive along with AAC and MP3 files.
• USB port supports all charging modes:
Supports SDP, CDP and DCP charging modes up to a full 2A, 4X the current of the BTU-1
Supports proprietary modes such as Apple® 1A/2A and BlackBerry®
Will continue charging even when radio is turned off (vehicle ignition on)
• Automatically resumes playback from where it left off when radio is turned back on:
Whether you’re listening to the radio, USB music or Bluetooth streaming, the FMR-2/BTU-2
returns to where you left off when you turn the radio back on.
• Hands Free call handoff:
If you are on a phone call and turn the radio off, the BTU-2 instantly hands the call back to the phone for uninterrupted operation. Turn the radio back on and the call switches back to the radio.
• Call waiting/Conference call support:
Multiple calls can be handled by the BTU-2 including joining (conferencing) all active calls together.
• Customizable Bluetooth Name:
Unlike cheap solutions that use generic Bluetooth names like XYZ v1.0, the BTU-2 name is fully customizable. Now you can name your radio anything you like, for example Bob’s 1956 BelAire!
This is extremely helpful if you own multiple vehicles.
• Supports internally and externally mounted microphone:
Use the internal microphone for convenience or the external microphone for highest audio quality.
With this much advanced technology packed into the BTU-2, nothing else is even in the same league.
