Donna in Townsend, Georgia listens on WBQO 93.7 FM and asked: “Is bluetooth an app that is in your phone that can be used with any vehicle, or does the vehicle have the bluetooth and you have to have a phone that is compatible? Can you use it in any vehicle?”

Donna, Bluetooth is a wireless standard. IEEE, the group that gave WiFi the 802.11 code, used to call Bluetooth the 802.15.2 standard, but they don’t anymore.

Bluetooth is just a near field communication standard and assuming both your phone and your car’s electronics adhere to it, they should be able to talk to each other.

Any modern or not-so-modern phone will have it, as will most semi-modern cars, but there are still plenty of cars on the road that don’t support Bluetooth calling or Bluetooth audio, if yours is one of them, there are 3rd party adaptors you can buy to add that functionality.

If you don’t mind the expense, swapping out your stereo for one that supports Bluetooth natively usually works better.
