CdConnect SAAB Bluetooth provides bluetooth for music to SAAB 9-3 generation 1. With CdConnect as Bluetooth Adapter, you can listen to music from your phone in the car stereo and use the steering wheel buttons to change track on the connected device. There is no SAAB original accessory available to enable Bluetooth for music.

Bluetooth to generation 2 (2003-2012)

There is no SAAB original accessory available to enable Bluetooth for music and there is no other solution available yet that allows the steering wheel buttons to be used to change track. We hope to release a product soon, which lets you switch track on the phone with the steering wheel buttons.
