    Great personal service with fast shipping and excellent fitment instructions! The BT3 was an easy install on my 2002 e46 BMW coupe and works perfectly with the original steering wheel controls, microphone is perfectly crisp and clear (i installed it in the original designed location for BMW’s). Music sound is crisp and clear also.

    This is a great business: My friends and family wanted to get me gift cards for my birthday and Skot personally created them even though it wasn’t a option at that time. Just fantastic experience all round, Thanks Skot!

    I purchased a GROM BT3 for my 2006 Mazda 3. I was really unsure about buying
    it and whether it would be of good quality. I was also unsure about how hard
    it would be to install. But after countless emails to Skot at Cushie Audio
    (thanks Skot for being so patient!) I felt confident and made my order.

    It arrived quickly and I immediately started the installation!

    20 minutes later, and with absolutely no experience, I had my stereo back in
    and playing music!

    The sound quality is great. I used to use the standard AUX input, in which I
    was always having to replace cables when the sound started to crackle, but
    with bluetooth the quality is clear and crisp.

    So glad I purchased this, and I’ll be buying another one soon for hubby’s
    car!

    Great product, very quick delivery, good advice from Skot and easy to install.
    Worked seamlessly with the stereo and steering wheel controls. Bluetooth very clear and driving is now very much more pleasant with music and podcasts coming through the car speakers.

    Would highly recommend the product, Skot and Cushie.

    Car: 2005 Honda accord euro
    Grom unit: bt3
    My personal experience installing car audio: none

    So far so good! Bought the bt3 with some assistance from Skot. No issues with shipment, very fast.

    Installing was easy. Just take your time and follow the YouTube videos if there are any for your vehicle. Essentially it’s plug and play.

    Had one small issue with the unit as it wasn’t connecting. However Skot was straight on it and helped me out. All I had to do was upload an update onto the unit. If you can copy and paste files on a computer you can do this. No issue, just an inconvenience.

    Now the unit is working and I’m very impressed with audio quality and the speed it has when connecting with my Samsung galaxy s10e.

    If you are considering upgrading a factory head unit to use Android auto, don’t bother. Get one of these. It worked out to be 1/5 of the price of a new unit and I’m sure resale value is higher with the original factory head unit.

    This is an amazing little product! Probably the easiest car audio mod/install I’ve done, took less than an hour and was super easy! I had tried a number of aftermarket products to achieve bluetooth in my 2005 Volvo S60 but they all sounded terrible or were not at all intuitive. I highly recommend the GROM BT3; Great sound, easy install and fantastic usability. To compliment all this Skot is absolutely fantastic to deal with, he is so friendly and more than happy to help with any queries. All in all I have been very pleased with my experience from purchase to install and use. 10/10 would recommend.

    I spent ages looking both within Australia and abroad for a way to connect my phone to my stereo in my 2005 Nissan Maxima.

    It ended up being a fantastic and seamless solution. I didn’t want to have to replace the head unit as they’re not too easy on the Maximas without costing a small fortune. It works without any dramas, including phone hands free.

    I love it! Exactly what I was after and more. Automatically starts playing again when I get in the car and works great with voice assist (via the microphone)

    Highly recommend!

    For a novice like myself installation was easy even though I had to make a modification to the stereo(Mazda 6) to get the GROM to work. Skot was a great help in this, as well as some useful youtube clips.

    Easy to fit, sounds great. Functionality is slick and just works nicely, as opposed to the factory bluetooth in my other car where the voice dialing never works properly etc. The microphone is great even at a distance from the driver, so you don’t seem to need to take the car apart to route it to the visor area. I put it on top of the steering column. This compares to my experience with aftermarket head units with bluetooth calling that’s unusable unless you lean forward into the mic.
    For my Lexus IS200 install i found a video on how to take the stereo out in 5 minutes to get to the plug on the back. I imagine in plenty of cars you could just reach up from the foot well.

    Awesome little unit. Has brought my 2003 Honda Accord into the present! The speakers in the Accord are fantastic (for factory items that are now 15 years old) but the only downside was that the factory stereo was not Bluetooth compatible. The Grom BT3 has fixed this. Very easy to install and the sound quality with the Bluetooth connection is amazing! It’s also handy to be able to make hands-free calls using the included microphone. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who needs to integrate bluetooth compatibility into an existing stereo.

    Unit was shipped quickly and I was able to follow the YouTube clip for the Subaru Liberty and installed on my own with no experience with car audio (I do work in IT though).

    Sound over Bluetooth was heaps better than I expected and I haven’t had any issues at all so far. The unit didn’t use the Aux setting but rather the second CD setting. This did not effect anything though.

    Definitely worth the money 🙂

  28. 5 out of 5

    Easy to install; easy to use; good audio quality.. I found a few caveats with the Mazda 3 version though:

    1. I had an aux port in my Mazda3 (which was connected through the “Media” input on the stereo). It turns out that this aux port was plugged into the port that the grom goes into, so in order to connect the grom, I had to lose the aux connection (although I gained an aux through the grom so this isn’t a huge issue). It would have been nice if I could use the existing aux port (in the centre console) via the grom though.
    2. It’s a bit of a shame that track names aren’t displayed.
    3. If I have the volume on my phone turned right up, the grom seems to overload the pre-amp in the mazda stereo and the sound gets a bit distorted.. Again, easy fix – just don’t turn the volume on the phone up too high – use the stereo instead.

    Despite the points above, I’m still giving this 5 stars, because it does everything that I wanted from it – it’s easy to install, it’s easy to use, it allows me to use the existing controls on the stereo, the audio quality is more than acceptable – and basically it does everything that I expected of it.

    Very fast install, less than 20 minutes in my Subaru Outback 2008. Auto reconnects when I start the car, and immediate responsiveness on the steering wheel controls. For some reason on my unit, I cannot use the back button, so I can only press next, and answer a phone call, but I cannot go to the previous song or hang up a phone call using the steering wheel buttons. I need to use my phone for this however, this is a minor irritation. Overall, I am over the moon that without replacing my head unit I now have music and phone calls via Bluetooth.

    So easy to clip in, and I was listening to my own tracks within 20 minutes – the 20 minutes was mostly me fumbling around trying to feel out the port to clip in to and then manoeuvre the clip to position.

    I purchased the BT3 to replace an old IPod integration unit as I was particularly interested in having Bluetooth functionality to be able to browse songs and answer calls hands-free.
    Initially the unit did not work as it should as IPod music would keep playing when a call came through or when I played music through Bluetooth.
    After thinking I had a faulty unit I contacted Chris from Cushie and he worked out through consultation with Grom Tech’s that the IPod 30-pin cable functionality had been removed in one of the newer hex file upgrades. I was sent an old hex file that i was able to load onto the BT3 and now everything functions as it should. Chris from Cushie was ultra-helpful.
    The unit itself has been great since and I’m especially enjoying using voice commands to request songs.

    Absolute piece of piss to install, took me 20 minutes but if your not a trim master like my self you could easily do it in a hour or so.

    Subaru MYO7 GT Spec B, McIntosh system PF-28241 made in Japan. What a great unit the Grom BT-3. Did days of research before purchase. Took 15 mins to install with Aux & USB below steering column and the mike in the drivers side pillar – piece of cake. The unit works brilliantly coupled with iPhone 7 plus. Steering column track up & down for phone answer works great, and once paired, if McIntosh on CD, as soon as ignition on, starts playing music from iPhone (I use full album shuffle works fine), again steering column track up / down works fine to skip. Using nav from Maps or Waze works great through system. Sound control for iPhone music / nav / phone calls works brilliantly (have them all in operation at one time) – takes a bit of fiddling to get levels right. I am still working on getting Siri to work (every time) concurrently as well – haven’t resolved that yet ……. any tips on this would be welcome.

    Works perfectly in my Subaru Liberty 2004 with Clarion McIntosh PF-25511 stereo.
    Including full steering wheel and stereo controls for calls and skipping tracks, despite the warning on this site that it wouldn’t be supported — which is a nice bonus.

    Bluetooth connects pretty quickly and reliably, and sound quality is pretty good so far. The volume of the bluetooth connection is also quite comparable to the radio which is great — no need to turn the volume all the way up to hear it.

    I was looking for a car kit for my Aurion and ended up getting the Grom BT3 with the aux and usb charger extension. It took about an hour to install and the result was good sound quality (similar to that of the CDs), I am able to use my steering wheel controls when using the bluetooth music and also with hands-free. Microphone worked well in calls, bluetooth sound quality appeared to be better than the aux and the usb charging feature works fine. I was also able to store the box safely behind the dash.

    Overall this kit is better than the cheap unbranded crap you may find on ebay because you get more for the value and the product comes under a guarantee and warranty.

    I strongly reccomend this kit for anyone interested in keeping their factory head unit.

  54. 5 out of 5

    The sound quality on Bluetooth is fantastic. It also paired up easily and the connection is very reliable. The sound quality is not quite as good on Aux (sounds like it’s clipping/saturating a fraction) but to say that is being pretty picky – it’s definitely still very listenable.

    I have a Made in China version of the McIntosh PF-28241. The steering wheel controls do work but with a catch… When the stereo is first powered up it recognises the unit as an external CD stacker. It displays on the screen that it is Disc 2 Track 50. Now, I can forward skip to track 64 (so 14 total skips), after which I can’t skip anymore. A little hack I’ve discovered is to start a playlist (I’m using iPhone) and skip back as many tracks as possible first up. After a few restarts of the playlist I get the track count down, past zero, and to track 90. I can then skip through 75 times (65+10+zero-track). Yes, I know I’m one of those skipping people, but I have a 90 minute commute sometimes… Give me a break!!

    But that’s not really in control of the GROM unit I don’t suppose.

    Either way, it’s a great unit. Definitely a good upgrade and worth the money. If you really want a reverse camera or something else maybe put your $$ toward a new stereo. But honestly this is a good upgrade to an already better than average factory standard stereo.

    Thanks Cushie Audio!

    The delivery is super quick with fastway courier paid for it Mon morning received at my doorstep Tues morning thanks Cushieaudio team!!!
    Was easy as pie to install, didnt even use any tool kits as suggested online in other forums, used only a flat head with an old rag over it to prevent scratches and took me no longer than 30mins to install. Would have been quicker if i made a swift decision on where to locate the BT microphone. Ended up taping it on steering column just under the wiper trigger. My voice on the microphone is clear also.
    Would definitely recommend this BT3 product to anyone requiring a standard head unit upgrade.

    Thanks again guys!!

    Very good price and ease of installation to achieve high quality blue tooth audio and phone in an older model car. Very happy with the Grom BT3 and delivery was next day. Well recommended.

  59. 5 out of 5

    Really easy to install. So happy with it. just bought a second hand 2005 Outback and it had everything I need except for bluetooth to listen to podcasts and take phone calls. Found the GROM online and figured it was a long shot, but I’d give it a go. Couldn’t have been easier. Pulled on the existing unit, plugged it in, read the instructions and it was working soon after, run the AUX cable and charger to a convenient location, put it all back together and that’s it!

    Very easy install, helpful emails to select the correct item and just works as promised. Very impressed I was expecting the process to be more difficult.

  68. 5 out of 5

    Let’s get price out of the way, first. For what it is, it’s expensive—there’s not getting around that. But one can’t complain about that as if it was unknown, since the decision to purchase was not made in ignorance. The fact is, kits that add Bluetooth to factory radios are very hard to come by in Australia. This was the only Australian company I could find! I say it’s expensive, because I could definitely have completely replaced the radio with a BT one for the price.

    But I didn’t want to. I have used single DIN radios with cramped up buttons and the main controls on the passenger side (oriented for left-hand-drive cars) for long enough that, when I got this car, I just loved the spacious, ergonomically nice to use, dedicated AM & FM button, radio controls. After umming and ahhing for some time, I decided I’d pay the extra to keep the much nicer-to-use factory radio and just ADD Bluetooth (I HEAVILY rely on Bluetooth, so SOME solution was a must).

    Installation was a cinch, am very pleased with the sound, though a bit disappointed that track name does not display on the radio’s screen (I knew from reviews that this wasn’t a given, but had suspected that for my model radio I would get track names to display; unfortunately not).

    Again, there was nothing (price and possibility that track names would not display) that I didn’t know before purchase, so I am actually very pleased with the result. I NICE-TO-USE double DIN factory radio with excellent, reliable Bluetooth, Aux-in and USB charging now. I’m pleased.

    Works great, Easy to install, Fast delivery , Neat design.

    Installed very neatly behind my stereo with cords going all the way to centre console no problem
    If I need one for another car would be buy from here.

    The install was very easy and the sound quality is great. I have a PF-25511 stereo and the steering wheel controls worked great. Even with my phone (Sony z3 compact) I can stream audio via bluetooth and change tracks and volume via the steering wheel controls.

    Works perfectly with MY05 Liberty GT McIntosh system (head unit type PF-22551I). It’s a little bit pricey but definitely worth the money. Bluetooth phone calls and music are crystal clear, aux sound quality is as good as you will ever get over an aux cable, no interference and doesn’t make a heap of noise when plugging/unplugging devices.

    Shipping was fast; ordered on Sunday night, received on Tuesday morning.

    Easy to install and use and worked first time. Great value for money.

    Pretty good sound, easy install.

    A great unit which is easy to install. Bluetooth pairing is quick and it picks up my phone instantly when I get in the car which is more than you can say for some systems in certain brand new cars!

    The best audio device I have bought, install was so simple and worked straightway. Connects to Bluetooth perfectly, it pauses the song when I switch car off and when I return and turn the car on it would resume playing, Only with Bluetooth I can use my head unit to change tracks, with aux you’ll need to use the phone. The only thing this needs is extra double sided tape for the mirophone as I had installed it then took it to get washed and they had knocked it down and now won’t stick properly.

    Wicked easy to install and my McIntosh PF-28241 (Made in Japan) works fine with steering wheel controls (contrary to some sites/forums).

  77. 5 out of 5

    Highly recommended! Extremely easy installation and operation.

  78. 4 out of 5

    Incredibly easy to use and install. No hassles at all. Only con is that Bluetooth audio quality is noticeably worse than AUX audio quality.

  79. 5 out of 5

    Great easy install, keeping the stock look and feel of the car with the easy to use Bluetooth. Would very much reccomend!!

    Superb company to deal with. Answered all my technical queries patiently and helpfully. Prodcut arrived earlier than anticipated and was very straightforward to install. The connections were idiot proof and the instruction manual was very clear. I listened to my own music en route to work this morning which is the first time I have been able to do so since buying the car. I’m delighted with the product!!

    How did I ever live without Bluetooth? This unit lets music and phone calls seamlessly integrate with the stock stereo, and is even better if you have steering wheel buttons as it utilises those too.

    Only problem is that sometimes when I start my car the music plays for a second and then pauses (instead of just automatically playing), and must be restarted by pressing play on the phone (although this may be due to the phone software itself). Otherwise operation is great, mutes music when a call is made or taken and restarts it afterwards, and steering wheel buttons allow easy control over answering calls, volumes, and skipping songs.

    Sound quality is as good as CDs or the radio.

    Would be nice if it were cheaper of course, but worth the money nonetheless.

    Easy to instal, works seamlessly for music, great alternative to replacing the head unit & facial.

  83. 5 out of 5

    Great product! Was so happy to keep all the functionality of the factory system whilst being able to input Bluetooth and iPod.

  84. 5 out of 5

    Absolutely stoked with the customer service, the unit that wasn’t compatible was replaced twice, then I found one that suited my needs exactly. Thanks for all your assistance. Very Happy.

    I found the installation and troubleshooting instructions a bit lacking. They seem quite generic and didn’t relate to my specific vehicle model. The source of my problem was the connection to the BUS wire on my vehicle wiring harness (it’s a thin wire so hard to get a good connection). Had to work this out myself.

    In relation to the music streaming via Bluetooth, the sound quality with the volume turned up to MAX on the iPhone is not good. What I have found is to turn the volume down to 3/4 on the iPhone then turn the stereo volume up. This seems to help with quality. Maybe something to add to your instructions!

    I love it now, had to jump through a few hoops – as nothing was compatible with the original stereo (head unit) so had to swap to a newer head unit ($40 second hand ebay) and splice together a new wiring loom. Works great once done!!

    CUSHIE AUDIO SUPPORT: Customer took a punt on an older radio outside of the supported GROM range hence the reason it didn’t work with the original radio. Since upgrading the radio it works with the GROM unit.

    Shipping took 1 business day, install took all of 5 minutes. Tip for anyone with a Mazda 6 GG series, just take the glovebox out and you should be able to reach in behind the stereo to connect the adapter. It’s a bit tight but much easier than taking the whole stereo out.

  88. 5 out of 5

    Overall a simple to use product that performs very well in the integration department. Sound quality is average for Bluetooth audio quality, however this is mostly down to Bluetooth and its inherent losses, and having multiple gains in control.

  89. 5 out of 5

    Works seamlessly with standard Subaru radio. Easy to install and effortless to setup. Music streaming from iPhone works well and sound quality is good. Very happy.

    I always dismissed bluetooth integration on my old mazda 6 as either too complicated or too interventional. But the GROM BT3 is, quite literally, plug and play. And unlike alot of the youtube GROM installation videos for the US, the Mazda 6 glovebox is on the left side in Australia, so you don’t actually need to remove the centre console to plug it in – you just have to gently remove the glove box (see youtube for instructions) and if you’re flexible enough, you can access the plug on the back of your sound system quite easlily – I had the unit it working within in 5 minutes including a quick change to my pollen filter (which by the way was filthy – you should check yours while you’re there)!

    What’s cool is that if you have an iPhone connected by bluetooth, you can use Siri to request songs, directions, read email, all over your car speakers.

    In terms of cons, it will connect most of the time, but in a small number of cases I’ll have to unpair and repair to get it autoconnecting again – but that’s a small issue and I have the same experience with all bluetooth devices I’ve used.

    I have a MY04 Liberty with a McIntosh PF-25511 disc changer, it recently stopped playing CD’s. I installed the GROM BT3 unit in 1.5hrs paired to my phone and everything works really well. Top sound quality and volume, if your McIntosh PF-25511 unit has failed get one of these units and you wont look back.

    The Grom BT3 unit is fantastic! Install was a piece of cake. Operation is seamless. As soon as I start the car my phone is ready to go for music or calls.

  93. 5 out of 5

    What a great alternative to the only other solution for my car, which was to buy a new Bluetooth head unit and replace my dash with an aftermarket unit in order to fit it at a cost of over $600. The Grom kit was simple and easy to install, and works great. Connects automatically every time I jump in- super fast, and has no problems switching between calls and BTA music streaming. That coupled with a factory fit look reinforces my decision that this is indeed the cheapest, easiest solution for Bluetooth connectivity. Friends and family so impressed I will be ordering a few more for them. Thanks guys, very impressed!

    Works fantastically and installation was a breeze. Plug and play FTW!

    The only issue was that I needed a firmware upgrade before it would work with my car, but support was great.

  95. 5 out of 5

    This is probably the best product of this type I have ever brought. I have had many other brands and quite simply this is the by far the best. The service and delivery times were great (even to NZ) , it was so easy to install and to put it simply it just works!!! The sound quality is great and the unit is very functional. If they made one for my VE commodore I would definitely buy it.

    Thanks heaps for a great product.

  96. 5 out of 5

    Fantastic product. It’s incredibly easy to install and the sound quality is superb. Took about 15 minutes to get it all up and running. Happily recommended.

  97. 5 out of 5

    Such an easy install after you have watched the various YouTube videos on how to access the stereo external stacker port – installed and working in semi darkness in 45 mins 🙂

    The Bluetooth sound is surprisingly full but in comparison to the iPhone connection is a little woolier/flabbier.

    At the moment it looks like I may benefit from a firmware upgrade to get the iPhone connection skip fwd function working (as it is working under Bluetooth).

    I got the Bluetooth confused after a lot of fiddling around but after clearing the pairing (forget device) then repair – seems fine since.

    A shame there isn’t a lightning iPhone cable available (30pin plus official apple adapter works though)

    Should have bought something like this years ago !

  98. 5 out of 5

    Easy to install after watching some clips on YouTube. Had to make a small alteration to the wiring in the stereo, again with help from YouTube. System took a short time to connect via Bluetooth but now it’s connected it works great!!

    Cushie Audio: Some 2003/2004 Mazda 6’s require a small modification to the radio, for more information see the following link: http://www.cushieaudio.com.au/wiki/mazda/mazda-6-head-unit-modification-guide.html

    Very easy to install, easy to use, bluetooth pairing was straight forward and good sound quality.
