The Duo and The CarPro by CoolStream Bluetooth Devices
The difference between the Duo and the CarPro has everything to do with where you want to stream your music.

Do you have a docking station, car, motorcycle, boat, guitar amplifier, P.A. System?  Then CoolStream probably has a product just for you and your stereo.

What do they have in common?
  1. They both use the 30-pin iPod connector for power and music streaming.
  2. They are both for music streaming only.

hardware and software

The CarPro has:

  1. Sophisticated software needed for luxury car stereos and motorcycle stereo systems.
  2. Bluetooth for music streaming only.  This will not work for voice/phone calls.
  3. No internal battery.  The iPod cable supplies the power to the CarPro from the engine.
  4. No Auxiliary Jack.  You cannot use the CarPro unless you have a 30-Pin iPod connector.

The Duo has:

  1. An internal rechargeable battery.  This allows you to take the Duo off the dock and use it on the go.
  2. An Aux Jack.  This allows for audio to be streamed to any stereo with a corresponding AUX-In port. The dual-tipped Aux cable needed comes with your Duo.
  3. Bluetooth for music streaming only.  This will not work for voice/phone calls.
The CoolStream Duo

The CoolStream Duo is designed to stream music to iPod docking stations like the Bose SoundDock.  Plug the Duo directly onto the 30-pin  connector of the dock, Pair the Duo with your phone or tablet, and Play music saved to your phone or from any streaming app like Apple Music.  The Duo also works for music streaming on all Victory, Yamaha, and Kawasaki motorcycles using the manufacturer’s iPod connect kits.

The CoolStream CarPro.

The CarPro provides music streaming in Mercedes, Audi, Volkswagen, BMW, Land Rover, Infiniti, Lexus, and so many more vehicles equipped with a 30-pin iPod cable.  It also works for music streaming in all motorcycles from Victory, Yamaha, and Kawasaki using the manufacturer’s iPod connect kit.

CoolStream CarPro is the answer for music streaming using the 30-pin iPod cable found in the glove box and console of many Audi and Volkswagen models.

The CarPro is a stand-alone device.  Because it connects to the cables of so many different kinds of vehicles, it does not come with a cable.
