The Ultimate Bluetooth solution for your car

An I-Bus enabled, fully integrated Bluetooth module for your BMW, Land Rover, or Mini.

IMPORTANT:

Due to the current state of the electronic component supply chain, the BlueBus is unable to be manufactured. A more readily available Bluetooth module is going to be used in the next hardware iteration of the device so that it can hopefully be available for sale in mid-2022 again.

NOTE: The above does not apply for orders placed before Mid-September 2021
