Replace OEM Radio with OEM BT Radio

I have a Tucson 2012 GL. No Bluetooth on the radio.

I replaced my iPhone with an Android and there seems to be no USB way to stream music.

I want to replace my radio with an OEM unit of the same type that has Blue tooth.

I don't care about making any phone calls. All I want is to stream music.

Besides the radio, is there anything else I need like a wiring harness or extra blue tooth module. Remember, I don't want to make phone calls. Just pair it up to play music.

Oh, and please don't tell me to get an after market setup for this or that. I just want to know about the OEM setup.

Thank you

    I'm surprised that your radio doesn't have an audio jack somewhere--or are you unwilling to work with a cable set up? You didn't say.

    At any rate, here's one way to add bluetooth to your OEM radio.


    CRUTCHFIELD also makes adapter kits and they have excellent tech support.

    If your plan is to swap out your OEM unit for another OEM unit with bluetooth, there may be some sorting out with that---for instance, the new unit might not be compatible with your steering wheel volume and station changing controls. So I'm not sure how this would pan out. It's kind of an esoteric question--whether an OEM bluetooth unit is a plug and play or not. I never encourage people to cut into a modern car's wiring harness if you can help it.

    I would check with the dealer to see if there is some sort of bluetooth module that can be added, without swapping out the head unit, as well. Probably not the cheapest option, though
